I'm finally starting my first real game project. I'm excited, nervous, and pretty much everything in between. Currently, the only thing I know about the game is it's going to be about horses, and it's going to be 3d. I don't have too many other ideas or concepts for it. I do think I want it to be more than a horse game - I want the plot to have some element of magic or spirituality.
Because I'm not anticipating or planning on this being any sort of marketing success, I'm just going to target it at ages 13+, or maybe closer to 15+. Not the typical demographic for horse games, and likely not the most profitable, but this is just me testing the waters. And, of course, making something I want to play.
So, because we all like to discuss different things we'd like SSO to add, or how it's targeted at children, I figured it would be good to ask you guys for help. Any idea is a good idea! I just need lots of ideas thrown at me - anything you'd like to see in a horse game. Thank you for anything you suggest <3

Are you doing this all alone? The first thing you need is to know the objective of the game. What is the player after? Now to figure out is a basic plot of how you want the game to go. If you are doing what SSO is doing by updating it then you don't have to have the whole thing figured out. The next thing is which view your doing and how your want to immures your player. (If you want more info on this contact me.) The next is creating the game and how you want people to be able to play.
I do what i do because I love it. Wind Star, alternative account on Frost Valley. 19 horses. Level 21.
savannahriverfish120: Does anyone have any negative opinions on the jorvik pony? it's one of the few horses I don't have.

alice001: Is anyone else having trouble launching their game? I haven't been able to play since the upgrade around the 11th Nov. Yes, I have been in touch with S.S.O. & I have done everything they suggested, as yet I am still unable to play.

The Magic of Winter December 07, 2023
Hey, Starfam! A snowfall has dusted Jorvik in a powdered-sugar coating, turning it into a sweet, winter dreamscape. Sleighs are dotted around the land, ready to whisk you away to the magical Winter Village!
But something’s not right!
The Winter Village lacks luster. A dullness has tinged its usual sparkle. A mischievous capran has broken the most magical winter crystal that harnessed all of winter's magic! Winter Magic has scattered across the village and things have gotten a bit chaotic, leaving the energy wild and unbalanced. It must be restored and only you can bring the Winter Village back to its former charm!
You must restore the crystal by collecting magic and channeling it properly! Winter Magic is bestowed upon those who participate in any of the numerous winter activities.
First, meet the Mischievous Capran in the Winter Village, where he will attempt to explain himself and start you on your journey.
Winter Activities Collecting Winter Magic doesn’t only restore the crystal, it also rewards Jorvik Shillings, Horse XP, Player XP, Tokens, clothes, or tack! There are many activities, new and old, to partake in:
★ Ice carving with Alex. Create a frosty masterpiece!
★ Weather reports show that the blizzards have returned! Help your fellow Jorvegians survive the snow crisis. Two snow storms will appear per day and rotate every hour so you have multiple opportunities to catch them both.
★ Collect magical snowflakes around the Winter Village to earn Winter Magic
★ Ride through snow piles
★ Randomized festivities in the Winter Village. These festivities shuffle every hour. So make sure to return often to complete them all! These can be found around Jorvik, but most are found in the Winter Village. Don’t miss the Penguin Concert and Stargazing which have been revamped this year!
The Yule Tree Step into the Winter Village and what could there be? Six wrapped presents sitting under the tree!
Visit the Yule Tree at the center of the Winter Village each day in December to unwrap a new treat. There are six gifts already waiting for you! Don’t worry if you miss a day, gifts will remain wrapped and waiting until you return. Just don’t forget to collect them all before the Wednesday update on January 10th!
Frost-Fueled Excitement The exhilarating Fast and Frosty Race, along with the Winter Village Race, are back! Gear up for an unforgettable winter racing experience.
New Game Onboarding! Our new players can enjoy a brand-new beginning to the game. This longer introduction takes you to a brand-new location, the Riding Camp! This content will match the quality of quests we make today and represents the excitement of the game to come. Players can now meet the Soul Riders at the very beginning of their Star Stable journey.
Any players who have not completed the old onboarding quests, will be reset so they can enjoy the full experience.
New Starter Tack Of course brand-new onboarding must come with an upgraded starter tack for your horse! Everyone who still has their starter tack will have theirs replaced with the new one. The original tack is now for sale at Marley’s Farm if you’re feeling nostalgic. Also, in case you deleted your starter tack, the new one is available for all in the Global Shop. Both will be at a lower price!
Retrofitting tack The Icelandic, Shire and Arabian will now be able to wear more items in game as we have retrofitted tack to be compatible with these breeds! We cannot wait to see all of your in-game pictures and edits with more outfits.
Bonus Shop! A new item is available in the Moorland Bonus Shop to all of you who became Star Rider by one-time payment! This feline Night Rider is a rebel at heart! Kitt is the perfect mix of adorable and adventurous!
Coming NEXT WEEK! The return of magic beckons newfound companions to the Winter Village. Encounter the charm of two sweet and frosty horses, the delightful Lebkuchen and the frost-kissed Vetle, accompanied by their companions, Gumdrop and Murrlan!
Have a cozy week!
Love from your Star Stable Team ♥
