Pony Island is a suspense puzzle game in disguise. You are in limbo, trapped in a malevolent and malfunctioning arcade machine devised by the devil himself. It is not a game about ponies.

Hotfix for localization bug (v1.22)

Just a fix for a bug that was reported for the Danish localization. The passwords.txt file in the corrupted OS screen was blank.

Russian localization is in!! (v1.21)

This has been the most requested language since the game came out. I have received many emails from people looking to translate the game into Russian but none were willing to tackle the task of adding the Cyrillic alphabet to all 5 of the game's fonts... that is until Farhad took it on.

Many thanks to Farhad Alyshev (@FarhAlishev25) for making this localization possible.

Reviews

“It’s a self-aware indie gem with an anarchic sensibility, where anything can happen.”
9/10 – IGN

“Pony Island is bloody genius.”

About This Game

Pony Island is a suspense puzzle game in disguise. You are in limbo, trapped in a malevolent and malfunctioning arcade machine devised by the devil himself. The devil detests having his puzzles solved and poor programming exposed; you will need to think outside the box to proceed and you will be insulted when you do.

In Pony Island you will...

  • Peer behind the rotting curtain of "Pony Island" to repair its broken code
  • Be forced to play along with The Devil's demented game of ponies
  • Explore the depths of the cryptic software system that runs His game

This game is about as indie as it gets.

Great little gloomy meta-videogame with some jumping, shooting, puzzling and a lot of 4th wall breaking.
The less you know about it in advance the better for your gaming experience. It's only couple hours but well worth the money. And don't forget to uninstall it afterwards!

a really straightforward runner, i mean you basically jump over hurdles and then avoid a couple of flying objects.

nothing more to see here.

just do what the game tells you and you'll be fine.

trust me.

no reason to do anything else.

enjoy.

now 100% more personable!

...Hello? Is anyone out there? I've been playing this game for a while now and I seem to be unable to leave. There's REDACTED and REDACTED, and I've been regularly getting messages from someone who goes by MISSINGNO. I've managed to break the game multiple times, even to the point of getting a Blue Screen... I thought I was on a Mac so this is either really buggy or I'm apparently supper talented or something. I've tried diving into the code, but all I've managed to do is give me REDACTADO or fix the light bug with menu options. Also, Jesus was here, and he can これは削除されました???

I liked the cute wolf-UkVEQUNURUQ=-men-things from the early build. Why did Still redacted have to delete that version? This is besides the point.

I guess the game is fun and all; The ponies are majestic and the gates are heaven. But like I said, I can't get out. No matter how I try it won't ever let me leave.

I'm just stuck.

Playing Pony Island.

Day after day.

Year after year.

I'm here.

PLEASE SEND HELP

I went into this game knowing what to not expect. And it certaintly wasn't that. Shame the summary gives away a little too much IMO but otherwise it's pretty fun and interesting. Worth the $5

Finally a glitch type game with code challenges that are fun and require some thought. You're not really going to know what this game is until you play it, and it changes things up just before things would get too repeative. I had a good time playing this one and well worth the $5.

The creator of the game is such a smart aleck.
He puts a free ticket button in the graphics settings.
Pony_island_meta brings you back to the title
In the fake options when you start up pony island for the first tiem you can find another free ticket.
H0pless$oul breaks the 4th wall.
and the final, daemon, well lets just say he tricks you.

I INCREDIBLY recommend this game, its worth the five dollars.

I love this game. It's a great mystery behind the simple facade. It's challenging and has definate replay value. It's a self aware game, so there are small differences each time you play through, depending on your choices. It gives just enough of a larger story to get you thinking, but nothing is ever wrapped up completely. (Saying this as someone who had not gotten the secret ending yet)

Okay so I played this game for 3 hours and honestly? I'm a little creeped out with a few things with it, but overall it was clever. I totally recommend this title to anyone who would like a quick game to beat or to just explore what the game has to offer.

Even for being a pony myself, Pony Island gets two Fore Hooves way up!

This game is amazing.

The game not only provides a different look at the title of a game but it also engages you in its interesting and unique plot, its devinitive gameplay aspects, its character development (If you bother trying to find the secrets about your past) and also I like ponies... so yeah.

I highly reccomend this game, 9/10
