–From the Terminal of Novel Idea–
Note: Minor update completed with fixed album art and it should show Kkat’s name as the author instead of Crazed Rambling.
Good day, mares and gentlestallions!
Novel Idea here with some exciting news. But before we get to that, we’re doing an official call out to any and all musicians who would like to have their music featured in “Gardens of Equestria: This Coming Storm & Racing Apotheosis!” Remember, we’re looking not only for Fallout: Equestria-style music, but a little bit of everything! From dance beats to blues, from electronica to country, we want your material!
We’re also still interested in anypony out there with experience in modding, level design and texture art! We’re also looking for some female voice actresses to fill some roles as well. If you’re interested in joining the Manehattan Project, head over to our Recruitment Center and let us know!
Now onto the mane event!
The day many of you have been waiting for is finally here! That’s right, the completely remastered deluxe audiobook of Fallout: Equestria (The Manehattan Edition) by Kkat is now available!
Now, I’m sure plenty of you will head down immediately and grab the file. For those of you who are still with me, I want to take a few moments to tell you just what went into this.
First of all, our Master of Music, Corvus, has been working on this for months. You see, he’s not just going to be the voice of DJ-PON3 and the creator of the fantastic “Smuggler’s Run Theme,” he’s also a master audio producer. It is his brilliance and devotion to the best possible listening experience that made this possible. He went through each chapter with unique software to make sure it was up to scratch (pun intended). The reason it took so long to get this out to you is because the software took that long to actually process this sixty-two hour behemoth!
But that’s not all. We here at the Manehattan Project applaud Crazed Rambling for being the only narrator to tackle Fallout: Equestria. We wanted to make his work even better. So not only do you have the chapter headings, quotes and footnotes done by yours truly, but you also have a newly edited version! That’s right, we removed many of the audio errors and even found a few missing lines and fixed those too!
Lastly, Corvus decided to put himself on the spot and write a full song to the beloved number that’s so frequently referenced in Fallout: Equestria. While the song was never given a title, we’ve taken to calling it “This Coming Storm.” Better known as Steelhooves and Applejack’s song, Corvus has crafted a new song based on and inspired by that original masterpiece. In fact, we’re be releasing this song today for all to listen to outside the audiobook and we’ll be featuring it on DJ-PON3’s radio station in “Gardens of Equestria: This Coming Storm!”
While there’s still a few things here and there that need fixing, we just couldn’t wait any longer to get this out to you. So please, click the link below and download the newly remastered version of “Fallout: Equestria (The Manehattan Edition)!”
In the coming weeks, we’ll be releasing the audiobook on YouTube as well, along with MLP Audiobooks and a few other locations!
You’d think that announcement would be enough, but guess what? We’ve got even more exciting news. First of all, “Smuggler’s Run” (which has been updated to Version 1.8, so make sure to download the latest fixes!) has reached over 120 endorsements, 2,000 unique downloads and almost 30,000 page views. That is amazing. If you’re one of the few who haven’t checked out our preview experience for “This Coming Storm,” head over to the Nexus and download it today!
With this influx of attention, the Manehattan Project has blossomed with new talent! We are proud to welcome FancyCat, the creator of the original “Wild Pegasus Whiskey” design from the original Stable-Tec experience, “Fallout 3!” We are also joined by Wolfie, who will be doing a multitude of custom models, including true statuettes of the Ministry Mares for you to collect throughout “This Coming Storm!” We’re also joined by Poprocks–the designer of the other Sparkle-Cola mod–who will be joining yours truly in perfecting and designing the levels you’ll soon be battling through! Finally, we have KangarooSwag, who’s also joining us as a modeling master, having done several unique and completely epic weapon and armor designs.
We’ll be going deeper into our new team members in a future post and give you a chance to get to know them better!
There’s plenty more to share with you…but I’d rather just show you!
The following material is a selection of just some of what we have in store for you in “Gardens of Equestria: This Coming Storm.” Please note that we are still deep in development and all of this is subject to change. But all of us here are just so thrilled with the progress, we had to give you a sneak peek.
[Sneak Peek removed from post due to website change]
We’re hard at work making this project a reality and trust me when I say you have a lot to be excited for!
Until next week, have fun and stay safe out there!
