Friendship is Epic is an upcoming fan-made video game based on My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, developed by Helements and several members of the Japanese brony community. It is a 3D side-scrolling action game with online co-op multiplayer functionality.
The game is being developed for Windows devices (with compatibility for Mac devices to be added later) using the Unity 3D game engine. It is being specifically designed to be played with the Microsoft Xbox 360 controller, but it is also compatible with a mouse and keyboard.
GameplayFriendship is Epic is a 3D side-scrolling action game; players traverse stages of various landscapes (usually from left to right) defeating numerous enemies along the way before confronting the boss at the end. It supports up to three-player co-op in online multiplayer mode. Five levels of game difficulty are expected to be implemented: Easy, Normal, Hard, Nightmare, and Chaos.
Each playable character has their own play styles that cater to the character's personality and abilities, such as Twilight's teleportation and Rainbow Dash's sonic rainboom.
Princess Celestia writes to her student Twilight Sparkle and informs her that Queen Chrysalis has discovered a portal into an alternate dimension and is organizing a mass invasion. Fearing villains from other dimensions may find a way to invade theirs, Celestia and Luna are using their magic to prevent other portals from opening while Twilight and her friends stop Chrysalis' invasion. They may even receive assistance from their other-dimensional counterparts.
