Happy Birthday!

Man, time sure flies fast. I can't believe it's already been a year since we've started. Starting with just an idea on a Ponychan /collab/ thread, we've come a long way since then. Back when we started, our first priority was to make something as presentable possible in order to recruit. This is from the first build of Budding Friendships:

It was just a simple test to get a pony animation working. It wasn't much (or anything really), but looking back a year and see that we've gone from that to this:

It's pretty amazing seeing that we've come this far, and we're fairly certain we can make it to the end, despite our ambitious goals.

What really caught us by surprise was when TheEarthPonyWay created a custom of our player character:

And then she offered to give it to us! I think I know how Faust and the rest of the Friendship is Magic team feels when they see fans creating fan works because of them, and I have to say it's pretty damn inspiring.

I would like to apologize for the lack of updates. We're still working diligently on it, but we don't feel that there is something nice and presentable to show yet. However, we will be at both BUCK and Midwestria with a lot more to show, so either catch us there or tune in then.
