Equestrian Dreamers is…
|GabuEx||Creative Director / Writer / Programmer / Webmaster
|I’ve been a professional software engineer since 2008, an avid gamer since 1990, and an avid brony since June of 2011. Confound these ponies, they drive me to create! My Little Investigations started as just a personal project that I expected maybe a couple people to care about. I had no idea it would get as big as it has, but I’m super psyched that it has! We’ve got big plans ahead that will need a great team to turn them into reality, but I for one have got high hopes for this project. I hope you’ll join me in bringing Equestria to the masses of brony gamers. I couldn’t be more excited to be working on this project!|
|ZeusAssassin||Team Coordinator / Game Designer / Case Designer / Writer||My Little Investigations will most certainly be my big debut role into game development. I’ve always dreamed on working on a major fan-game, but I never found the time and passion to do one due to my tough career path into mechanical engineering. Thanks to the ideas and enthusiasm of GabuEx, my dream has finally been realized with Equestrian Dreamers. I will undoubtedly pour my heart and soul into MLI in order to make sure it becomes the ultimate way to experience Equestria outside of the hit show that brought me here in the first place. Whether the way I it do be through voice acting or just general game design, I will contribute my very best into MLI.|
|dawnmew||Technical Designer / Programmer||I’ve been playing video games since I was two, and programming for almost as long! Due to my tendency to have way too much free time, I search the internet for programming projects that interest me and try to help in any way I can. Since I’m an avid pegasister and a big fan of the Ace Attorney/Investigations series as well, I was all over the My Little Investigations project shortly after it was announced. I joined up to help port My Little Investigations from XNA to Java (and thus allow it to work on non-Windows computers), but I’m here to stay now that the port is well underway – and looking forward to watching everypony enjoy the finished game!|
|HallowGazer||Dialog Character Artist
|I’m a grafic-design student, passionate about comic and manga-art since I can think back and I’ve been enjoying video-games since about as long. Since 2011, I’m also a fan of My Little Pony after I coincidentaly stumpled across the relaunch of the series. I consider My Little Investigations a great opportunity to contribute artistically to a project created by fans for fans. It will be the first great project I’ve been working on in my free time and I’m excited to be part of this and see it through from start to finish. As a fellow brony, I’ll be sure to put my best effort into the faces and expressions of the ponies we all know and love.|
|TehJadeh||Dialog Character Artist
|I am a currently a student trying to get into animation school, I’ve been a gamer since I was at least four, and a brony since September 2011. Since I have so much spare time, I jumped the chance to audition for MLI, being a big fan of Ace Attorney/Investigations and MLP:FiM. I’m new to the scene of voice acting, (still seeing where my voice can take me) but it has always been a clear interest to me. I never thought I would ever be working on a project like this! Big thanks to GabuEx and the team for choosing me! I look forward to working with everyone and making this game the best it can be!|
|Abion47||Dialog Character Artist
|I guess there are three shocks here: that I’m a vector artist, that I’m mart of a game dev team, and that game is about My Little Pony. I’m a pretty young brony having just started in June, but that didn’t stop me from diving in head first to its awesome community. By trade and education, I’m a programmer, but my true goal is to someday be a video game designer, and to that end I have been learning as many aspects related to that as possible. I’ve gotten my feet wet with acting and story designing, and more recently I’ve started picking up music and artistic design as well. I never thought that I would be able to test my merit on a real game so soon, much less one with such an amazing premise as this! Thanks to GabuEx and ZeusAssassin for thinking I am worth something, and to TehJadeh for all her help. This team is amazing!|
|WarpOut||Field Character Artist
|Hi! I my name is WarpOut (Steven Hanssen) and I am a 2D/3D animation student. Born, raised and living in Belgium. I have been an electrician for 2 years, but being a gamer, drawing- and animation-artist in my free time I chose to change my life and go back to school to study game-design. Having achieved that goal I am now studying Animation-artist. I became a brony on april 2010 thanks to a dear friend. Taking my life decision seriously, I am giving my fullest to make a name for myself and strengthen my abilities as much as I can. Thanks to Equestrian Dreamers I have now that possibility and I am very psyched to give it my all and do what love I do with these talented people in order to bring this amazing brony community a game worth playing.|
|Pony Tim||Field Character Artist
I remember submitting my test animation to be on this project. I was taking my first class in Flash and thought it would be a fun exercise to practice. Of course for a project as awesome as My Little Investigations they would find an amazing animator. True I had taken a traditional animation class and a 3D animation class years ago, but that was back when I was a full-time college student. I did my best and waiting for the inevitable rejection. Imagine my surprise when I was asked to be an animator for MLI!
I became a brony about a year ago because of a friend, Pat. He convinced me to give it a try, and after a few episodes I was hooked. I stayed out of actively participating in the brony movement as long as I could, thinking” how could I contribute?” But then I staffed for Everfree Northwest and participated in Equestria Daily’s Artist Training Ground and was inspired to keep going. Now, I’m an editor for the shipping and Handling audio play and an animator for MLI. I’ve started drawing again after a long hiatus, not only of pony art but of more traditional art subjects.
Ponies have inspired me to get back into art and try and make something of myself. I dream one day to be a video game artist, and MLI and the brony community is helping me live that dream and reach my goals. Never give up, and even if you don’t think you have what it takes, try it anyway. Who knows, you just might have what it takes after all.
|PonyArtist||Background & Prop Artist|
|When I was 10 I did a drawing that totally impressed my big brother and that was it! I was going to be an artist when I grew up. In high school I won several awards for my paintings and enrolled in University to earn a fine arts degree. But somewhere along the way I realized that I just didn’t know what I wanted paint. What ever could be worth putting onto that big white canvas that anyone would care about? So I took up a “real” career, learning to play with numbers instead of paint. But in my heart the artist still lives and at last I’ve found something fantastic to paint! Simple and wonderful at the same time, MLI Pony Places are full of colour, space and — mystery. What happens next? Let’s build this game and find out!|
|Your run-of-the-mill brony with a penchant for sudden bursts of furious scribbling, I’ve been a fan of the show since January of 2011. I’ve been an avid gamer since I was a kid, and for the longest time I’ve wanted to take part in a creation of a game, preferably as an concept artist, or an illustrator of some kind. Really liking the Phoenix Wright series, when I heard of this game for the first time and saw the engine demos, I knew I wanted to try it out. Never imagined I would actually be given a chance to take part in this project though! Creating the best possible art for this game is my goal, and I will try hard not to disappoint!|
|I’ve been a gamer since I first got an SNES in the early ’90s, and I’ve been a huge fan of the Ace Attorney series since I first picked it up in 2007. I’ve been writing music for more than a decade, and I’ve been very inspired by video game composers such as Koji Kondo, and Yasunori Mitsuda. It’s an honor to be working on this project, and I’m looking forward to creating a soundtrack inspired by both the Ace Attorney series, and the show’s wonderful score by William Anderson.|
|Hello everyone! I’ve been playing with sound all my life and in more recent years, actually working with it. Being an obsessive gamer and a brony, My Little Investigations seemed like a perfect opportunity for me to hone my skills. Whether sound effects or music, I’m always willing to set to work and improve where I can. Sound to me, is my most important sense and I hope to show everyone just how enjoyable sound can be.|
|PrincessRil||Voice Actress (Twilight Sparkle)
|I have been acting and singing since I was very young, but only began work as a freelance voice actress in 2010. I provide voices for various fandubs, original animation, fan based productions, and independent video games, as well as sing in several groups on Youtube. I am very excited to be a part of the team and will absolutely do my very best!|
|LoveKiku||Voice Actress (Rarity, Sweetie Belle)
|Ever since my boyfriend got me into it, My Little Pony has pretty much been a part of my daily routine! I’ve been auditioning for voice acting anypony and everypony on My Little Pony fan projects and this will most certainly be the one I’m most proud of! I would like to thank GabuEx, ZeusAssassin, and the rest of the crew for hiring me as this will be my debut into the voice acting world, and I will work my best for you all! Thank you, everypony!|
|BreeFaith||Voice Actress (Pinkie Pie, Apple Bloom)
|In summer 2009 I was introduced to the world of voice over acting, and since then I haven’t been able to turn away, desiring to pursue it past a hobby. In the summer of 2011, I was introduced to the My Little Pony fandom and have been steadyly involved in it and fan projects. Besides my new role in My Little Investigations, my other credits include The Fiends from Dream Valley, On Cross and Arrow, Epic Cupcake Time, Epic Pie Time, My Little Pony: Love is Magic and various comic dubs. I also appeared at BroNYcon in January 2012 as a guest to premiere Epic Pie Time. I can’t be more excited to get to work on My Little Investigations as both a video game and My Little Pony fan! Besides Voice Over and My Little Pony, I also enjoy video games, Magic the Gathering, Anime, Cosplay, cooking and History (as it is my major! ;D).|
|DivinexRose||Voice Actress (Rainbow Dash, Scootaloo)
Not very good with these small bios, so please bare with me. I have been voice acting for almost 4 years (started in around 2008), and I still enjoy it to this day. I also enjoy writing stories very much, since I was a little girl, and I do a bit of graphic designing for fun. I have a lot of other hobbies, but the following three is what you’ll mostly see me do.
For My Little Pony, I’ve been in faithful to since the very old classic series long ago. I used to collect all the ponies and movies, and when I saw Friendship is Magic, I was very happy to hear about it, and keep up to date with episodes since then. I’m an avid fan, but not crazy obsessed. I love Rainbow Dash and Ashleigh Ball so much, and I’m honored to be playing as her in My Little Investigations.
|Flootershai||Voice Actress (The Mayor)
|I guess I’d consider myself a gamer and geek first, and an amateur VA second! MLI will be my second MLP project as a voice, and I couldn’t be more proud. Mostly my talent as a voice, MLP or otherwise, goes to use for the entertainment of my friends and equally Brony husband, the latter of which plays the guitar while I sing (sometimes in character, much to his delight). My other talents are rather varied– like Fluttershy I have a “freaky knowledge of sewing” and a good hand with pets (I train my friends’). I do the rare cosplay, and although I consider myself a shy person, I have been known to rise to the occasion and plan the larger pony meets for my state.|
|ThatCanadianDude||Voice Actor (Rover) / Writer
|Well, this is certainly a shock. A first year media student with delusions of entertaining the masses getting his first big role in a fusion of a Japanese style courtroom dramedy and a television show aimed at the 5-12 female demographic. Fortunately, I happen to be a huge fan of both Ace Attorney and My Little Pony, so it all works out in the end. Despite my ongoing media education, my true passions have always been gaming and performing. I’ve sung and acted on stage, sang with choirs, performed musical theatre, but nothing beyond little local performance groups. Now, I’ve come to the internet with the hopes of bringing entertainment to the masses, and this seems like a fantastic place to start. I look forward to seeing a finished project we can all be proud of and that will entertain all who play it.|
|HoodedYellowPony||Voice Actor (Fido, Spot)
|I have to admit that I’m relatively new to the herd, as I only fell into the fandom in November 2011, but it is a group that I love to be a part of, and have dived headfirst into. However, there has been a lot of talent displayed from the fandom, and I figured it was time that I contributed to this new group that I call a family. I’ve always had a drive for voice acting, but never really had the self-confidence to audition for roles before these confounded ponies gave me the assurance that I could do it. And here I am! I am so very happy to say that this is my first major project, but hopefully not the last. A big thanks to Gabu, Zeus and the rest of the team for granting me this fantastic opportunity, and I hope to not let them down!|
