Sissy's Magical Ponycorn Adventure Owes Cuteness To 5-Year-Old Designer

image

I hope you're sitting down, because you are about to see the most adorable game since Nintendo canceled Luigi's Kitten Basket.

Sissy's Magical Ponycorn Adventure is a Flash-based adventure game, that unlike the vast majority of similar titles was conceived and designed by a 5-year-old girl named Cassie. The creation of the game's more technical aspects were farmed out to 33-year-old Ryan of Flash developer Untold Entertainment Inc. using the company's Untold Graphical Adventure Game System.

As a result, the title's key concepts involve crayon illustrations, sparse animations, and 100 percent of your daily recommended allotment of pure, military-grade cute.

The existence of this game however, raises two important questions.

First, what exactly is a "ponycorn?" If Cassie's fully-voiced narration is to be believed (and it almost definitely is), a ponycorn is "the best thing in the world 'cuz they're like ponies and unicorns." It should also be noted that Cassie "friggin' LOVES ponycorns."

That query answered, we can address our second question: How is it that a 5-year-old is able to design an adventure game? Assistance from her 33-year-old aide aside, I think it's apparent that this game was created entirely by virtue of Cassie's overwhelming cuteness.

If, at some point, you can stop squealing with delight long enough to operate a web browser, Sissy's Magical Ponycorn Adventure can be found on the Untold Entertainment website. The game controls similarly to a classic Sierra PC adventure, except that all the instances of unavoidable death and game-breaking bugs have been replaced with extra helpings of childhood whimsy and intense cutesypoo.

....The hell did I just play? I....what? I can't adequately describe what I just experienced.
EDIT: What does she have against lemons? Racist.

Good god. It's like they blended LittleBigPlanet with My Little Pony and Adventure Time.

Then they took the resulting brew, and left it to freeze, taking out the concentrated core of adorable. And then did it again!

This is the Applejack of cute media.

Aww man! My computer won't load the game!
I'm out all that cuteness :'(

Isa....wha...I...

Is this what it's like to trip acid?

This makes me happy.

lol, that was almost sickeningly cute, but still amusing.
That game has an... *puts on glasses* ...untold amount of entertainment.

People should play it.

Owes "Cutness"? Is that a typo or a pun on account of the paper-cutout style?

...I have no idea what the hell I just played, but I can say it did warm my ice-cold onyx baseball of a heart by a fair amount.

It was ok, I guess...

Huh? *subtle wink*

Damn you Evil Lemon!!!

Not sure if Lady Fuzzwuzzle or Poo-Pants is my favorite ponycorn.

What's your favorite?

Further proof that when adults and children collaborate on something awesome happens.

Observe.

All donations go toward Cassie's education fund.
Donations to Date: $446.00 (thanks!)
Cassie can purchase: A $500 second-year course on economics. At first, she'll be
denied entry, but then she'll produce a $54-off coupon.

That was amusing enough that I kind of want to donate now.

I don't find the game cute, though. Although, I would assume that's because I have no soul.

...Kind of shameful that a five year old made/got a game, and I can't even make a crappy sprite-based one.

Bisholshushan-sholvalnuh was obviously the superior Ponycorn.

Good point.

I wonder if in the sequel we have to fight the Evil Lemon again... I hope so. I owe him some pain.

O.

M.

F.

G.

I don't know which is worse: the fact that I completed this game, or that I'm admitting it i n public.

The End.

O_O

...What the hell did I just play?

And now im in the mood to go watch MLP:FiM....

That was a really nice, and cute game, the cutest I ever played anyway.

Thanks!

Someone get this girl a job as a lead game designer. NOW!

Please?

That wasn't cute, that was disturbuing... and she better watch out, or...

sissy is racist against lemons..

The game is... er... It exploded my ears with all the shrieking. Augh. T_T

And what's wrong with lemons? D:

My thoughts exactly. More team-ups with thirty-year age gaps between creators, please.

OMG!!! This is the greatest game in the WORLD!! The story line is so amazing, and game play mechanics like I've never SEEN!!

Playing this gave me chills. I felt like I was in some sick murderers world.

I found this much more disturbing than cute, but then again I'm insanely tired right now. Now I'll have nightmares about evil lemons, tiger's wanting to eat me and dinosaurs locking me in cages.

"Tiger, close your eyes!"
"Okay."

Right. That being a point-and-click, I expected a convoluted sequence of arbitrary exchanges for each "room". More adventure games should be left to five year olds.

Finally! The only point and click Adventure game which I'm actually good at and don't need walkthroughs for!
...And It was designed by a five year-old... huh...
...Wait, why doesn't she like Socks exactly!?
Edit:

I don't know what I just played, but it was adorable.

Wha.. The...

The CUTENESS! IT BURNS!!!!

Seriously, this is such a concentrated amount of cuteness it can cause Soul-Scarring when observed by the unpure, or just when observed for longer than 5 minutes.

Orangeboy reminds me of the janitor from Futurama, or the janitor from water boy. For extra fun keep clicking on the lemon. I hope someone didn't call the cops on me, I was using speakers.

That was.... by far one of the most creative things I have ever played.

I just realized how much I hate kids' voices. Shrill, piercing, abominable noises. But other than that, I enjoyed the game.
