Sissy's Magical Ponycorn Adventure

I'm here at Ithaca busting my ass learning to make video games and a 5 year old already beat me to it...WHAT! But actually, it's incredibly adorable and really cool. Apparently she made all the art assets and did the voice of the main character and her dad imported it all into a working game at TOJam; a 48 hour lock in where independent developers design the best game they can. The story is simple: collect all the Ponycorns in jars. Through the use of magical rainbows, Sissy is able to travel to different dimensions and help the inhabitants with their problems, or stop the evils that threaten the safety of the mythical Ponycorns. The game is a point and click adventure and uses puzzle elements, like collecting key items, to disrupt the linear flow and challenge the player. There is so much heart in this game it makes sense that it became a viral hit in 2011. I highly recommend people check it out; it won't take more than 5 minutes out of your day and it will take you back to a very special moment in your childhood!

Here is the game:

Here is the story behind it (really cute too):

Have fun!
