Welcome to Equestria, Angband style!

Angband is a "roguelike" RPG, which has somehow stayed strong and enjoyable for 20 years despite its utter lack of ponies.
I fixed that.

Enter Anquestria, a My Little Pony variant on Angband.
I've already made enough changes to make the game feel like My Little Pony, but a great deal of work remains to make this a fully fledged My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic RPG.

Anquestria is available again for download. Source code is too!

Anquestria is once again available for download in the Links section (or here:  https://github.com/downloads/natron77/Anquestria/Anquestria_0.11.zip).

  • If you want to just play the game, or if you want to test, get the game zip above. 
  • If you want to be a tester, just play the game and give feedback :) I'll post all new changes here on the blog, and we can coordinate to make sure they all get at least some testing.
  • If you want to help retheme text (change the Tolkien themed item names, unique enemies, etc), download the game, and browse and learn the files in lib/edit. Edit those files with wordpad, etc.
  • If you want to contribute new gameplay designs, play the game, and write out concepts for features to implement.
 I'm working on getting a simple repository for non-code changes like the text files and designs. Once that's up, we can all post and discuss our changes.
The source code is available at https://github.com/natron77/Anquestria
The current plan is to use Github for our source control and changelist tracking.

Anquestria is playable and downloadable!

Anquestria is now available for download. Give it a try!
EDIT: Because of the GPL license on Angband, I had take down the download until I post the source code. I promise I'll get that up tonight, and the compiled executable will be back up too!

Note that normal Angband characters and settings files are not likely to work for Anquestria, and they most certainly won't after some more planned changes are made. But that doesn't matter because you came here to play as a pony, right?

I'll be posting the source code tomorrow so contributors can help out, and for people that just want to compile it themselves.
