The new sci-fi sandbox indie game StarBound, is in beta and available on Steam right now. It has multiple playable races, and constant updates adding new content every time. New races will be added, and Ponies may be one of them.
Many have made mods to add a playable Pony into the game, and it’s highly likely that soon it will be officially implemented into the game. The lore is that you are a pony from the planet Ekuestreea, and you were ordered to trek to into the stars to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations.
The community of StarBound has been debating over whether this is a collaboration with Hasbro, makers of the animated series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, or if it’s simply a nod from the developers over at Chucklefish. Some argue that it’s neither, and they’re simply making a pony race.
