Fluttershy’s Hearthswarming Adventure

Fluttershy’s Hearthswarming Adventure is a text adventure game created for the Christmas of 2015. This is a fan game.

This is my second Windows parser-based interactive fiction. This means that there are no graphics to speak of – that takes place in your imagination. Instead, surroundings and events are described and you interact with the world by typing commands. But do not worry: It is not as difficult as old school games are. There is a suggestion system that will help find the commands you need and the game is set up in a way that you cannot truly lose.

The story itself is about the journey of Fluttershy to the depths of the Everfree in search of a magical artifact known as the Emotion Orb. She encounters animals, other ponies, obstacles and puzzles along the way. And in the end, it will be up to her to decide whether, and how, to change the Hearth’s Warming Eve festival for everypony, and for all time.

Remember that you are supposed to use a combination of the suggestion system and command typing. Usually, typing three letters of a word should be enough to eliminate most unwanted possibilities and then you use arrow keys and Enter to choose.

It is programmed in C# using the XNA framework.

I created the game at the age of 23, in 2015.
