Time to see what we got in Derpy’s Mailbag, our collection of random submissions since the last Mailbag. Side note, if you sent something in before the 10th, it got lost. Long story short, when we changed over the domain to the site, my e-mail accounts for some reason decided to douche its inbox clean, and I know I lost a few things. Anyways, on with the show.
#01 My Little RPG by The Code Pony
Like text based games? Well the text MLPRPG being created by the Code Pony is looking for testers and helpers. Here is some copypasta taken from the blog. (http://mylittleponyrpg.blogspot.com/)
Goodness, has it really been a week since my last post?
Since the last update, I’ve continued my overhaul of the weapon system, which has carried over into the item system. I’m on the verge of a very functional, modular, and intuitive system for me as the programmer, which will hopefully allow me a great deal of flexibility with defining and using new items and weapons. Baby steps . . .
Updating the blog with a post *shudder* can be intimidating. I worry about not having enough to say to warrant a new post. This has been a consistent problem with me and blogs, and rather than becoming discouraged and leaving those following the blog hanging for weeks on end, I’ve decided to explore other options. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not abandoning the blog in any sense, but I am starting a Twitter! That way, I can post bite-sized updates to the Twitter as they happen, easing the wait in between posts here, which will be of the the larger, meatier serving size. Check it out (perhaps a follow as well?) over here: http://twitter.com/#!/TheCodePony
Likewise, I’ve been considering extending my testing base beyond my immediate friends and family. If you’re interested, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me. I’ll select three testers from the first ten to message me for this first trial run, and we’ll see how it goes from there. (PLEASE NOTE: This game is in a pre-alpha state. It is essentially a collection of proof-of-concepts at the moment, requires the installation of the Visual C++ Redistributable, and needs to be broken repeatedly by a team of dedicated testers. If you’re still interested, then let’s talk. Have your people call my people, or something like that . . .)
Loving the cooler weather. Stay warm, everypony!

Another Derpy custom, this one comes with accessories. Vincent also does other customs in general, seen here.
