Them's Fightin' Herds

Anyone saw this yet? http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=523129840

It's pretty much your average fighting game, but with quadrupeds. Which is a pretty original idea. Well, if you think it looks like My Little Pony, you're kinda right, it started out as a MLP fangame before they got issues with Hasbro, forcing them to go with an original IP. Probably for the better, otherwise they would have copyright issues, they wouldn't be able to sell their game commercially and they wouldn't have their new IP designed by Lauren Faust herself, creator of Friendship is Magic.

Still, that looks like a good pony game without being pony, and seems it won't be vaporware after all, it's been a while this game was in development, and the C&D from Hasbro definitely didn't helped... or did it?

Wow that looks pretty fun. I instantly thought of MLP when I saw it indeed.

That game seems interesting, but yeah after reading the description, I am not surprised that Hashbro sent a DMCA to them at least once. They're very picky about their intellectual property and fan games.
