Flash Friday: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic - Story of the Blanks. A retro-themed game mixing sweetness with...uh, something unexpected. Suffice it to say, Applebloom and Twilight Sparkle will be in for a surprise. After all, it's not as if Zecora didn't try to tell them...via

I got laid after the herb magic thing.

Uhh, I got to the end I guess but I must have been so absorbed in the action that I didn't quite get the plot.

I expect they'd built the whole game using edited My Little Pony footage, that'd be impressive.

I can't really play this at work, but god help me I will never get tired of the shuffling cymbal in old nintendo games.

In other pony related news, "There's A Pony For That".

I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that the scariest game I've ever played has got "My Little Pony" in its title.

That was annoying until the dead ponies starting killing me. Then it got super annoying. I died twice and gave up.

(Links contain possible spoilers for game linked above.)

This isn't the first time somebody thought to combine those particular ideas.

Not the same exact theme, but related, and funny.

I couldn't read any of the text in that one house (it rendered black on black for me,) so I had no idea what was going on. Fortunately I found a summary here (Spoilers, obviously)

That was creepy.

Really want to play this, but when I hit spacebar to begin my browser pages down instead of starting the game. Which is weird because I had already clicked the start button in the flash window. Am running Chrome, which is telling me I'm up to date. Huh.

Click in the Flash element another time and then be the pony.

Can I import my character from Hello Kitty Island Adventure?

What's the trick for getting past the sprinting pony (the second real threat?) He's got my number, apparently.

This makes me feel old. I don't think... I don't think I really have a place in this world anymore, you know?

Besides just pushing the boulder and RUNNING RUNNING RUNNING? No trick.

(There was text in a house?)

I'm not sure if there was text there we aren't seeing or you were just supposed to read Applebloom's 8-bit reaction to pony bones.

It's ok to be scared when playing this game. Real men admit it when they are.

That's possible. Seems an odd way to do it, though.

Spoiler:

Damn, that's what I suspected.
