Hey again, everypony! Autumn is here once again, which means it's time for everything to get a little bit spooky for a while - and Equestria is right on theme, with Hallowtide now in full swing! That's not the only thing happening in our latest update; read on for a few other highlights from v2021.05.01, now available for download!


You'll probably notice that a few places have had their atmospheres adjusted for the festivities. This is more than just the usual decorations this time around, however; new seasonal trimmings have been added along with some fog effects, and a new bloom setting really helps with the ambience! There are also some new cosmetic pumpkin lanterns available from your friendly neighbourhood graveyard-tender, Crypt Keeper! And of course, some ponies will be celebrating the festivities by giving out candies, and the seasonal costume quest is enabled once more, for those who haven't yet created Ensemble's masterpiece of a Hallowtide costume!


Not everything in this update is as spooky, though; the Cantermore Library now has a suitably ostentatious interior, complete with enough tomes to shake a bookcase at! There might even be some reading material there to learn more about the origins of Hallowtide itself...


Our efforts to include your efforts in-game continue, as we add 2 more fan-made main menu themes! Where will Prologue end up next? You can read more about these inclusions here, if you'd like to submit your own, and see your artwork in the game for all our players to enjoy!


There's plenty more included in this update - greater VR support, mobile UI tweaks, new Talent Marks, and of course the usual raft of bug fixes and quest issues addressed - and you can check out the full details in our changelog. To experience this new content, you'll need to update your copy of the game; if you're playing using a direct download on your computer, you'll need to go to our downloads page to download the latest version. If you're playing using our launcher, or the Android mobile version (we're still working on iOS, don't worry!), you should be updated automatically (although you may need to visit the Play Store and prompt it to update the app)!


That's everything for now; we hope to see you in Equestria soon, and that you all have a very happy Hallowtide!

Hey, everypony! Hope you're all having a great summer. We've certainly been busy, and we've got a lot to talk about, so let's jump straight in to what's included in the latest update for Legends of Equestria, version 2021.04.01!

As always, you can get the full run-down of what's included from our changelog - but there's a few things we think deserve highlighting here for you!


First things first, perhaps one of the biggest updates LoE has seen since - well, ever - we've been working really hard to create a mobile version of Legends of Equestria! You can now experience the world we've put so much effort into on your mobile Android device. It's taken a lot of work to try and get the game onto portable platforms, and we've had to create new user interfaces to get it to work, but we hope you'll agree that it was worth the effort!

LoE should be able to run on Android devices with version 8.0 or later of Android, 3GB of RAM or more, and a 64-bit CPU - so if you have a compatible device, now you can enjoy Equestria on the go! You can find it in the Google Play Store, and as usual, it'll be linked on our downloads page. We're currently working on an iOS version as well, and when there's any news available for that, we'll be sure to announce it too!


Another big addition is readable books. You can now purchase book items at reputable book-stores in Ponydale, Cantermore, and the Crystal Kingdom, and enjoy their contents right from your inventory. Maybe you can learn more about the world of Equestria and its history, or just curl up with a good book!


The yearly summer celebration, the Festival of Lights, is of course now in full swing! Check out the new decorations in the major cities, and complete the seasonal quest (if you haven't already) for a special time-limited cosmetic item!


In case you missed it, we recently added a new main menu theme, which gave us the idea of using this to feature some of our community's work! We've now added some of our favourite submissions for all to enjoy; if you'd like to submit one yourself, you can read all about it here!


That's still not all though! There's the addition of a new mine area in Applewood, new NPCs and quests, new textures for existing armor sets (as well as a cool new set entirely!), our recently-repaired auto-updating Windows Launcher version of the game, and a host of bug-fixes, changes, and improvements to make Equestria an even better place to visit! If you'd like to check out the exciting new additions, make sure you grab the latest version of the game from our downloads page - or, if you're on an Android device, the Google Play store - OR or, if you're using our launcher, it should automatically download the latest version - and we'll see you in Equestria!

Hey there, everypony!

We're hard at work on the next update for Legends of Equestria, and we're looking forward to showing you what it's all about soon. Right now, though, we'd like to talk about something from our previous update: the new main menu background.

When we created this background, we intended to have it followed up eventually with more random choices, until, hopefully, we'll have a good selection of themes that you can experience every time you launch LoE. While working on it, though, we realised that this might be a good opportunity to feature some community ideas, similar to our previous design-a-dress and hairstyle contests!

So, if you'd like to see some artwork of your own featured as one of our main menu themes, we're now taking submissions for consideration! Here's what you need to know:


  • The design must include Prologue, as seen above. For those that don't recognise him, Prologue is the purple unicorn featured on both of our current menu backgrounds. He doesn't need to be the focus of the image, but he should definitely always be there. The setting for the design should also be somewhere that feels suitable for Equestria. Prologue is usually seen reading a scroll; maybe it's a map, and following it has led him to some strange places? You can decide where it's taking him next!
  • Please bear in mind the tone of LoE, and ensure that your submission is appropriate for our game. If you're unsure if something is suitable or not, you're welcome to ask us, or to submit it and get feedback!
  • Don't include any of the user interface elements - like the login buttons, the exit button, the version number in the bottom-right corner, etc. We'll handle that part!
  • Only submit your own creative work. If you think someone else's design is perfect for this, encourage them to submit it themselves, rather than submitting it for them! If you'd like to include other ponies, characters, or elements from LoE, or of your own design, that's completely fine; just please make sure that you have permission to use any elements that aren't your own or from LoE, and that they don't belong to another person or group (e.g. copyrighted/trademarked characters from television shows).
  • You're welcome to use whatever art style or theme you like; something that feels like it would fit well alongside other designs based on LoE might work well, but if you've got a creative idea for something entirely different, we've love to see it!
  • We'd rather have brand-new, original designs for this, but if you have already created fanart that you think is perfect for this, we'd encourage you to check that it follows the guidelines here, and submit it!
  • We don't have a strict rule on the image size, but we'd recommend working in a high resolution format, preferably 2K or 4K, to ensure that the design looks its best on everyone's monitors. Please make sure that you keep the aspect ratio to 16:9, though!
  • You know the 3D effect on the current backgrounds when you move your mouse around? To achieve this, we have different elements of the image separated on different layers, which respond differently to mouse movement. To incorporate this into your own design, please think carefully about what elements of your image might be considered 'foreground' and 'background', and separate them out appropriately so that we can do the same for your design! Here's an example of what it looks like, as both a .PDN project file and as separate .PNG images. While 'foreground' elements should have transparent backgrounds, please make sure that the ultimate 'background' layer is a full and complete background, without any transparency (like the Ponydale backdrop in the example .zip provided above!)
  • We'd recommend including a watermark or signature of some kind on the design, so that people can tell who made it; alternatively, if you don't want to add a signature to the artwork but still want us to credit you, we can add it ourselves in Unity. The top-left or bottom-left corners are probably the best place to do this, as they don't currently feature any menu elements that might block it. If you include a link (e.g. to an art portfolio), please make sure that there's nothing unsuitable for minors in that location, otherwise we won't be able to include it in the game! If you want to submit it completely anonymously, without any signature or watermark, that's also fine, just make sure to let us know when you submit it!

If you'd like to submit something to us, please make sure to include all the assets in a .zip folder, similar to the example given above. You can send it to us in one of two ways:
  • We have created a channel in our Discord server, #menu-art-submissions; you can post your design there publicly, if you'd prefer, or to get feedback from both ourselves and our community.
  • Alternatively, if you'd rather submit it privately, you can send your design to [email protected]. Bear in mind that we can't promise to include every submission as a menu theme, but each one will be carefully considered; if we think that we can provide feedback to you to improve the design and re-submit, we will do so!

Please bear in mind that if you submit any design for this, you are giving us permission to use it for one of our main menu backgrounds, and to potentially alter it as necessary to fit within the template above if necessary. You still own the artwork, and can do whatever you like with it; effectively, you are providing Legends of Equestria with a license to use it! This is achieved under an Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-SA 3.0) License, the details of which you can find here.

We'll still be working on our own designs for menu themes, of course, but we thought this might be a fun way to have our fantastically talented community's work highlighted and included in the game!

If you don't feel like a menu design is your area of expertise, but you'd still like to try and contribute to the project, please check out our recruitment post - we're always on the lookout for passionate people in all sorts of fields to join the team, and help us bring Equestria to life!

We hope to see plenty of creative ideas soon, and look forward to sharing them with everyone else as a main menu theme!

Hey again, everypony! We hope you're all doing well, wherever you are. Our team has been working to bring you yet another update, and we're ready to share some of that with you today, with version 2021.03.01 now available for download!


The first thing you might notice is that spring as, officially, sprung! The winter snow has all been cleared away thanks to the efforts of all of Check List's little helpers across Equestria, so if you missed out on chance to earn a Winter Warm-Up vest this year, you'll have to wait until next time!

This update comes with a host of bug fixes, resolving a range of issues from UI overlaps to leftover quest markers, broken teleporters to guard directions! If you've run into an issue that stopped you from going further with a quest, check our changelog to see if it's been addressed - and don't forget to report it using the system explained here if not!


That doesn't mean we haven't added any improvements, however! We've improved some of the background code that determines which room you end up in when joining a server; you should find it easier to meet up with friends now! We've also expanded our customization system for equipment, meaning it now has support for 3 color selection. You can see this in-game now with a few items, notably the Kirin costume and the Sempai Dress!


There's plenty more to boot, with a raft of new NPCs to chat with, a whole new main menu theme to enjoy, and more! Remember to check our changelog for the full details, and we hope to see you in Equestria soon!

Hello again, everypony! Tired of all the snow and cold? Me too! Good thing our Spring update, Version 2021.02.01, is now available from our downloads page.

Legends of Equestria's first big update of 2021 is here! With some bug fixes, tweaking, and more exitedly, the return of our seasonal Winter Warm-up quest and a new talent for the pegasi to help with those pesky clouds! For the full update, be sure to check out our Changelog!

Pegasus ponies have found ways to use weather in combat, with the new Weather Talent! Flashy lightning, ice, and water abilities await our feathered friends, but take note- these new abilities will come at a cost! Consult your local unicorns for more information.





For foals who want to specialize in our newer talents, rest assured that the team is still hard at work looking for teachers to teach foals the arts of Mining, Farming, Science and Weather.

Check List is back in town again, looking for ponies to help clear up the snow and prepare Equestria for Spring... but it seems Winter has been unusually harder this year.

Sightings of Frost Dragons having been going around the town and Check List will need only the most trustworthy Winter Warm-up ponies to help drive them away.

And who knows, maybe she will have something nice for you afterwards!



These were our most exciting highlights for this update, we hope to see you soon in- Hey! Who turned off the lights?



As always, you can grab the latest version of the game from our downloads page. There are plenty more things planned in the future and we hope you stick around to experience it all with us.

Hey there, everypony! Hallowtide is right around the corner, so it's about time for our irregularly-scheduled seasonal update, now available from our downloads page!

If you want a full list of the things that have changed in this update, you can check out our changelog - but here's a few highlights!


First off, of course, is the Hallowtide seasonal event! Ponies from around Equestria are celebrating this holiday, and sharing the bounty! Make sure you seek out these generous horses if you've got a sweet tooth, and maybe you can learn some more about the history of this occasion!


And, as usual, Ensemble is offering up a mission to create his spookiest masterpiece - but he's also updated his stocks with even more costumes to fright and delight!


Maybe the biggest addition this time around, though, is another new Talent, with a whole new system backing it! Unicorn ponies can now learn all about Science, so get ready to research creating potions, crystals, and other useful items! Please note that you're not able to choose this as your Talent Mark yet, however; that quest will be coming, though!


That's just a highlight reel; there's plenty more to discover and enjoy in Equestria, so we thank you all for your patience, and hope to see you there soon!

Hey, everypony! It's that time of year again - that time when we just about squeeze out an update at the end of a 'season'!

As always, you can find the full list of what's changed in our changelog; it's not a huge list this time around, but be assured we've got some big things in the works! For now, let's take a quick look at some of the highlights.

First off, and perhaps most importantly, it's the third anniversary of Legends of Equestria's Open Access Release! We're proud of having reached this milestone, and we can't thank each and every one of you enough for taking this journey with us. In celebration, we've updated our obligatory birthday cupcake hat to reflect the achievement!


We've also had a major rework of one of our less-well-developed systems - namely, soothing an enemy. It hasn't worked all that well so far, so like good little chemists, we went back into the lab and gave it a good shaking until it came out the way we wanted! (Note: we don't recommend this as a methodology for actual chemistry)


The enemies you face should now properly display how Angry they are with you for bothering them in their busy day of walking back and forth occasionally, using the right-hand bar on the reticule when you target them - and skills with Soothing effects should properly help to calm them down! Note that you'll still gain full experience and items from soothing an enemy that's angry with you. Now there's more than one way to deal with confrontation!


Of course, since this is our summer(ish) update, the Festival of Lights in-game event should now be active! Collect those prismatic shards and get in touch with everypony's favourite clothes-horse if you haven't collected your technicolor lantern yet.

As always, you can grab the newest version of the game from our dowloads page. That's everything from us for now; we hope you enjoy the new release, and we'll see you in Equestria!

Hello again, everypony! Summer's right around the corner, so let's get the snow removed properly and plants growing in our latest release, now available at our downloads page!

Let's start with some much needed bug fixes. First, pegasus ponies will no longer get sent flying when they fly directly onto the ground. Shops will also no longer take your bits when you try to buy new items with a full inventory.

We have also rebalanced the energy usage for each pony race! Earth ponies now lose less energy when sprinting, and pegasus ponies' energy drain in flight will depend on whether they're flying upwards or downwards.


Now for our most exciting new feature: two new Talents for everypony to try!
Ponies far and wide can now grab themselves a pickaxe and start mining for some useful ores, or maybe even something rarer if they are lucky, with the Mining Talent!


Earth ponies in particular have also found a place to grow their seeds into fresh vegetables and fruits, as well as cultivate rare flowers, with the Farming Talent.


While we are still looking for teachers to help foals learn the art of Farming and Mining, anypony can enjoy trying their hoof at these skills for now. But don't be discouraged, our hunt for a teacher is still ongoing!

Unicorns and pegasi, fret not; your second unique talents are being developed, and will come in due time. For now, you can check out more details regarding this update in our changelog for the release.

Now, what are you waiting for? Grab yourself a pickaxe or your nearest Earth pony friend to try out our new talents: Mining and Farming! We hope to see you in Equestria soon!

Hey again, everypony! It's time once again for an update to Legends of Equestria! Are you excited for a potential host of riveting new features? Well, allow me to temper your expectations by providing the details of what's available with this latest release, now available from our downloads page!

First off, we should cover the range of improvements to our UI. The hotbar has received a lot of love in this update, allowing it to better respond to your display size, and swap around hotbar tiles - as well as customise how it's displayed on your screen!


We've also improved our equipment system, to better handle unequipping items that conflict with what you're trying to put on. This should hopefully cut down on the devastating menace of sock-stacking!


On top of that, we've worked on tackling trading bugs, like inventory overflow issues, which should (forelocks crossed!) no longer happen! And to top things off, more customised emote icons have been added, to help you better distinguish between, for example, lying down and having a snooze!


As always, though, there's more changes than that; you can find our full list of changes for this release in our changelog.

That's everything for now; we hope you enjoy what Equestria has to offer! And with a little luck - and a little hard work on wrapping a few things up - we'll see you again soon...
