Legends of SOCKquestria is now available to download!

The long-awaited sock-based sidescrolling pony game is finally here! That's right, the one and only Legends of SOCKquestria is ready for everyone to enjoy!

Well, everyone who can run a .exe file, anyway!

Click here to download your copy of Legends of SOCKquestria! (http://forum.legendsofequestria.com/go.php?url=aHR0cHM6Ly9sZWdlbmRzb2ZlcXVlc3RyaWEuY29tL0xvUy5leGU=)

Once it's downloaded, you just need to unzip the executable using any program able to unpack .zip archives; for example, WinRAR. After that, Legends of SOCKquestria is yours to enjoy! Our team has worked very hard getting this ready for today, and I think you'll all agree that the effort has really paid off!


Please note: as usual, some web browsers, operating systems, and even antivirus systems may be sceptical of files from us; we're not really big enough for companies like that to recognise us! Just remember that so long as you're getting it directly from the link we provided, you'll know it's safe; it's the official download for Legends of SOCKquestria, after all! So, if you see a warning like that, but you still want to experience this amazing game, remember to mark it as safe!

It's actually in the LOE package somewhere, but I'm not sure it's used in-game yet.

I have decided to abandon dragons as my main theme for art and also to change the focus of my channel. Thanks to this epic game, I have decided that pony is the way I should head.  :D

Avoid the socks. Use space bar to jump and right arrow key to actually make it over the rows of socks.

And it was this comment that got me on the Game Maker website. My husband and I have our hearts set on making a 2D pony game, but we've been intimidated by Unity's steep learning curve.

After I get home from work today, I'm going to doodle around with Game Maker a bit. Thanks, dude!

You have to extract the data.win file. Just Google how to do that and it will give you the file and the program you need. Once extracted, it will be in the AUDO folder. Enjoy!

Edit: The extractor is called QuickBMS.
These are the links you need:

Wait, here's a thought.... As of Hearts-and-Hooves-Day in Season 2, outdoor arcade cabinets are canon. Could Legends of SOCKquestria be a playable Easter Egg, if the player knows where to look? Since this game was made in Game Maker Studios, and LoE is made in Unity, I can imagine some coding issues, so... maybe the Easter Egg is written text of the URL to this forum thread so players could download SOCKquestria for themselves.

(https://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/mlp/images/4/43/Button_Mash_ID_S2E17.png/revision/latest?cb=20140625032537)

If not, then I'd love a quick one sentence text blurb said by some NPC somewhere that SOCKquestria is the new hit game that everypony's waiting impatiently for.

Have that as an easter egg would be quite neat! The closest thing of a hidden arcade so far is that Pac-Man-like minigame in the well in Ponydale.

Alternatively, there could be an actual arcade cabinet somewhere (maybe inside Sugarcane Corner) with LoS on the screen as an animated texture, though not possible for the player to interact with it. It would be like the cabinet is simply on and the game is running on Demo Mode.

Maybe a quest where an NPC standing in front of said arcade cabinet asks the player to help him visualize how to beat a challenging level in his game, and then suddenly you're wearing springs on your shoes avoiding socks being blasted out of a cannon. All the while, he's shouting encouragements and critisims at you.

Quote
"It feels weird that you don't respond to my game paddle..." "No! Don't get any of those socks dirty! I kinda sorta borrowed them from my mom and she doesn't know yet." "Yes! Oh, I feel a breakthrough coming through!" "You could be a speed runner!"

Hopefully there'll someday be a 'Things-With-Buttons' update that adds typewriters, arcade cabinets, studio camera, and stuff you can interact with. I'd love to walk up to a typewriter and get Sims-esque options to "write trashy novel" or whatever and have a book with a random texture appear in my inventory that has a random goofy title.  And then the item can be sold to an NPC shopkeeper for a few extra bits.

Wow... I missed this, probably since it wasn't in the LAR section of the forum. I really need to stop assuming that there won't be any news other than what is mentioned there.

Anyway, I can confirm that Legends of Sockquestria works on Linux, if you have Wine.

No, not the drink. The program that lets you use Windows programs with some success.


Best game ever. Loved the music, especially. Great message, and I look forward to the sequel.  ovO
