Back to News Listing My Little Pony: Cavalry Commander Announced

Posted: Tuesday, April 01, 2014 by Bart Schouten

Type: News

We are pleased to announce that the Slitherine Group has gained the exclusive rights to the critically-acclaimed ‘My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic’ license and that we are currently working on a series of games under the My Little Pony Franchise. 

Armed with this powerful license, we are currently working hard to bring you the first game in an exciting  new series. In My Little Pony: Cavalry Commander, the player will have to manage the Pony armies both on a strategic and tactical level for the ultimate My Little Pony experience!

“Signing the My Little Pony franchise was the next logical step in our overall strategy.” Said JD McNeil, Chairman of the Slitherine Group. “We are always looking for new opportunities to expand the wargaming community and reach new markets. With My Little Pony, we can do just that!” 

In MLP:CC, the Golden Valley of Dreams has been attacked by the legions of the Unicornfederacy (Confederacy of Black Unicorns). In response, the Ponies quickly suspend their playtime and organize the Free Pony Militia. While the Ponies have the will and determination to defend their valley, they lack the military organization and technology to effectively challenge the Unicornfederacy. And that is where YOU come in.

As the player, you will be put in command of the Free Pony Militia and you will have to organize your Ponies into an effective fighting force and command them in the many battles against the Unicornfederacy. At the same time you will be in charge of modernizing the cavalry force. Starting with the unarmed ponies, you will have to fund technologies to unlock armoured cavalry units, or ‘Heavy Ponies’ (see pic). Will you be able to command the determined Ponies and save the Golden Valley of Dreams?

Features:

  • Immerse yourself in the world of My Little Pony with the epic story-driven campaign
  • Learn the game with the help of four comprehensive tutorials
  • Improve your tactics in over 20 scenarios
  • Command the Pony nation on a strategic level, manage the economy and prioritize research
  • Fight tactical battles against the hordes of unicorns, use the terrain to your advantage and target them with experimental weaponry to clear the battlefield of the Unicornfederate invaders!
  • Meet all your favourite Pony characters and help them save their world
  • Find new Bronies in the online multiplayer lobby

My Little Pony: Cavalry Commander is currently under development and will be presented at Home of Wargamers. The game is planned for release this fall.

    Brother Against Brother: Battle of Wilsons Creek revealed!

    Tuesday, March 31, 2015

    We are delighted to reveal another highly detailed map for the upcoming American Civil War wargame Brother Against Brother: the Drawing of the Sword!

    The Battle of Wilson’s Creek represents one of the first battles fought in the Mississippi Theatre and it was seen as a great springboard for the further Confederate operations in the region.

    As we did for the previous Battle of Manassas, we are giving alongside the map also a 20 page PDF booklet with the precise description of the forces on the battlefield with the proper order of battle!

    Sovereignty enters Early Access and gets a Stream!

    Tuesday, March 31, 2015

    Today we are excited to announce that Sovereignty will enter Steam Early Access on April the 9th!

    Slitherine, Gothic Labs and The Lordz Games Studio really see Early Access as a unique opportunity to gather relevant feedback on all parts of the game and enhance it accordingly. This epic fantasy strategy game is a rather ambitious project and we thought that the community would be the best source of inspiration to take the game where it deserves to be.

    Sovereignty has been in development for 3 years now, so the content provided is already very rich and players can have a complete play through with all of the realms and campaigns available!

    Brother Against Brother: Battle of First Manassas Map revealed!

    Wednesday, March 25, 2015

    “The only true rule for cavalry is to follow the enemy as long as he retreats”- Stonewall Jackson

    Good news for you, American Civil War fans!

    As the release date of Brother Against Brother: the Drawing of the Sword approaches, we have a lot to share with you. One of the key features of the game is the incredible attention to detail and realism that was put to recreate the historical battle maps. So from now until release, we will give you the opportunity to let you browse them, discover them, own them and more!

    We will start with the 1st Manassas battle map. This huge image has been slightly reduced to allow you to check it out online, but you can also download the fully blown thing alongside a 20 page PDF booklet with the battle history and the full in-game order of battle. Download it here if you want to be blown away!

    War in the West Update to V. 1.00.21 and Operation Torch Beta announced!

    Monday, March 23, 2015

    “The enemy must be annihilated before he reaches our main battlefield. We must stop him in the water, destroying all his equipment while it is still afloat!”(1944 - Erwin Rommel)

    The definitive wargame of the Western Front is updated to version 1.00.21! New contents and features are now fully integrated to give the game a more detailed perspective. For instance Italian reinforcements are now allowed prior to July 43 (in the past they were not allowed until after Italy had surrendered) and with this version it’s more difficult to reach very high interdiction values.

    The list is very long, so be sure to check the full changelog here.

    The patch can be downloaded here

    But this time the good news is not finished, because alongside the update we are very happy to announce that an expansion of the base game focused on the attempts of the Allies to open a second front in Europe prior to Overlord is now ready to enter the beta phase! And we ask players to help us test it by enlisting for the beta here

    Order of Battle: Pacific gets an After Action Report!

    Friday, March 20, 2015

    Good news soldiers!

    As the release date is approaching, we think it’s high time to share more visuals and information about Order of Battle: Pacific. There’s no better way than a comprehensive AAR to delve into details and see what the game can really offer. That is why Lukas (game designer) and Dave (AI programmer) work hand in hand during 20 turns in the sultry Philippines against a very capable Japanese AI!

    We are in December 1941 and the Japanese army is starting its invasion of the Philippines.  Only few US units are available in this sector and have no chance of repelling the enemy. However, they can surely delay them. And the longer they resist, the better the US army will be able to strike back! But will Dave and Lukas cooperate effectively during 20 stressful turns?
