Pony Island is a suspense puzzle game in disguise. You are in limbo, trapped in a malevolent and malfunctioning arcade machine devised by the devil himself. It is not a game about ponies.
This mostly solo project began as a Game Jam entry for Ludum Dare 31 (theme: "Entire Game On One Screen") in 2014. During the first half of 2015 I worked infrequently on the game, mostly concerned with getting Greenlit and/or finding a publisher to bring it to Steam and other PC distributors. When I succeeded in getting the game approved for Steam, I concentrated my full efforts on it and, after about 6 full months of development it was complete. The music was original and created by Jonah Senzel. The design of the first 30 minutes of the game (originally the demo) was greatly assisted by Simon Jenkins, an experienced industry game designer. I created all code, art assets (with the exception of some 3D assets) and the design for the subsequent acts of the game. Playtesting was absolutely essential to the end result and everyone who played the game during development made a significant contribution, especially my girlfriend Tasha, who had to continuously suffer through the levels and puzzles that only I had ever played and were way too hard.
