I was going to just make something small to encourage game making. But then it got a bit out of hand. So here's the result. Vote if you wish but if you can, please leave some text comments (somewhere in the forums maybe).

Comments

There is a syntax error in maze.py line: 432 remove the "q" and it should work. Other than that, not a bad game. However, when Fluttershy got "Discorded" I won somehow?

Thanks for reporting the typo, Myth. I've changed it in the repository. For those who just want play a game that works, please download the new version (click "Mirror" on this page and then "ZIP" on that page). But you should take this bug into consideration when voting. As for winning, did you "win" or did you win? I know its not obvious from the instructions but ponies still gain Fear up to and including the turn they are "discorded". Maybe this is what happened?

.......Alright, the first game on our list...... and...... I can't even play it...... It's for Linux....... DANG NABBIT, You Win this round, Discord! I'm afraid that I can't do this game proper justice because I'm a Win32 owner, and .py files are the bane of my existence for that reason. It's such a shame, too! I was really looking forward to all the unique ideas you threw into this that don't show up too often. Having the Chaotic God messing with you and creating illusions that you have to see though adds a monstrous amount of character that's missing from most stories, so I really appreciate all the effort that went into this.

Oh........... I am SO SORRY for the previous comment..... I really feel like an idiot now. I have to use Python. Just like some of the other games do here.... I'm afraid I'm taking away a point for that, since you didn't explain that very clearly! How was I supposed to know what to run this game with, given the fact it's not recognized by Win32 as it says it runs on?

I'm glad you got it to work in the end, KyoKusagani1999. Unfortunately, I've not persuaded my browser to let go of its grudge against the submission form. It is fortunate enough that Rylius managed to post something on the game list page at all. But this feat was not without a price since the long description is missing everything but the first line. The forum contains the rest of the lines. I will try to mirror them here but am not sure this will work at all. A sacrifice to the God of Order as I hit "post"!<br> <br> The game needs Python 2.x (Python 3.x won't work!) and nothing else. Run rungame.py in Python.<br> <br> The (not so great or powerful) source is released under an MIT license.<br> <br> See the file "instructions" for longer instructions (or type "i" in-game).<br> <br> Discord's game<br> ==============<br> <br> Welcome go the palace gardens! This labyrinth is now home to Discord's game. No wings, no magic and a few more rules.<br> <br> Every turn a dice is thrown and a chosen ponies moves forwards by that many steps. The dice takes value between 1 and the ponies' maximum speed. Try to get everypony to the end. The Elements of Harmony are there! Probably.<br>

Well, the lines are there but line breaks are not. Bah, good enough. (Also, I'm not sure if this was part of your dialogue but there's not need to apologize. At least not from you. Missing information is missing information.)

By Cantorlot

It is very unclear what all is happening with this game. When I moved Twilight she entirely disappeared, and never reappeared despite subsequent moves. The game randomly crashed about ten turns in, just after Rarity got one fear.

By Cara Citrine

It also crashed for me shortly in, just before global fear took effect the second time. Still what I did get through was quite fun!
