Manehattan Update #47: Major Milestones & Recruitment Time! · 9:51pm Jul 7th, 2016

I've got some big news for you today everypony. Seriously major news. Epic news.

I'm beyond ecstatic to announce that principal level design production is complete for Gardens of Equestria: This Coming Storm.

So I hear you asking, "What the heck does that mean?!"

Well, settle down. I'm about to tell you.

It means that the Appleloosa Valley and 70+ levels of GoE: This Coming Storm have all been structurally completed, decorated with the proper aesthetic, refined for gameplay and more. Containers have been added for weapons. Shields and forcefields are up. Massive complex machinery has been installed.

The closest analogy is when principal filming is complete for a movie. While there's a ton of work that goes into any movie after filming is complete (audio, special effects, music, etc, etc), it's still a major milestone. Don't get me wrong, we've still got a long way to go, but this is a big deal. In celebration, we'll be releasing a new environmental preview trailer in the coming weeks. You might even get a glimpse of some of the secret areas I haven't revealed yet!

So get hyped people.

In fact, here are a few things to help you with your hype! Check out what's been done already with our first two Environmental Preview Trailers!

And that leads us to part two of today's post: recruitment!
We have immediate openings on our Technical Team for scripters. Scripters are what make the game really happen. They're the ones who control the dialogue, the quests and the encounters. They work hand and hand in making the world of GoE real.
If you have any experience with game design (specifically Skyrim, Fallout 4, New Vegas or Fallout 3), especially with quest design, scripting, encounters or anything similar, please let us know by heading to our Recruitment Center.
We need your help folks. If you want to see GoE sooner rather than later, it's time to pitch in and make this game!
That's all for this week folks. See you in two weeks!

P.S. I'm also looking for beta readers (otherwise known as pre-readers) for a couple stories that don't involve GoE or FO:E at all. If you're interested, hit me up in the comments! Time for you folks to see that I can write.
