Pony Tactics: Salvation (not to be confused with Pony Tactics by futzi01) is a tactics style fan-made My Little Pony RPG game inspired by Final Fantasy Tactics, Disgaea, and Ogre Tactics. The game is being made in Unity and will be open source and free on release.
The story of the game uses canon from seasons one and two, and three only selectively. It takes place over a thousand years before the events of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, a few years after Equestria is founded. Any original characters used will be created specifically for the game.
Salvation is the first in a multi-part story.The game is now discontinued.
Taking place just after Discord comes to rule Equestria, Salvation has players lead a team of fleeing townsponies to safety. Players battle many different types of enemies in many different environments. Along the way, party members come and go, forcing players to keep their strategy fresh.
Unlike most tactics style games, Salvation does not have a classic job system. Instead, every unit falls uniquely into a role, with skills and abilities maintained by the story instead of jobs/levels. Smart use of a team's abilities and items is rewarded, as health/mana is not fully replenished after every battle.
After defeating Nightmare Moon, Twilight Sparkle discovers that the stained glass windows in the Castle of the Royal Pony Sisters tell of a history she had never heard of. When questioned, Princess Celestia begins retelling the dark tale of Discord's reign over Equestria, the finding of the Elements of Harmony, and how she and Princess Luna came to power.
