Fresh off another heavily physics-based sports title, Natural Motion Games is going to hit us with a My Little Pony-like game. No, seriously -- Venture Beat has the exclusive on the studio’s My Horse, a horse simulation game that’ll feature radical horse physics, radical horse visuals, and radical horse grooming, feeding, petting, and training.

In addition to this, it’ll feature an RPG-like progression system and IAP functionality. And while the visuals on display are pretty hip, it seems pretty obvious that this is a game for the casual crowd and not us hardcore, push-it-to-the-limit types.

Venture Beat reports that each horse in the game will move and act in different ways, and all the horses will be differentiated in terms of look. It’s probably important to note that this is an outsourced project -- Natural Motion is using MunkyFun for the actual development of My Horse.

As silly as it sounds, I’m all about this. I plan to maintain the nastiest horse this side of Shadowmere in My Horse, provided it allows me to create an undying, fast-traveling horse with red eyes and an ugly demeanor. I guess I’ll know for sure when the game launches in the next day or so on the App Store for the radical price of $0.

    Free??? That's just great. Now I'll never get my phone back from my daughter.

    (actually, she really does love horses!)

    The game may be free, but I'm willing to bet you can buy plenty of digital goodies for your pretty little pony using real money. This game may be a stroke of genius in that regard.

      With luck there will be an in-app glue factory you can purchase. Let those stuck up horses get what they deserve!

        I’ve been beta testing this, and I probably shouldn’t say, but “My Horse” is only a code name. The shipping title will be “Glue Tycoon.” It’s addictive! I have already earned the rank of Mucilage Master and I just can’t stop playing! Raising the perfect horse for the most profitable adhesive properties is immensely satisfying.

    I'm disappointed this isn't really a My Little Pony game.

  • The Truth

    i asked apple whether there were any plans to port this game to the 3ds but apparently no.

     i'm seriously worried here, apple really needs to step up their game or they'll be going DOWN!!! and i mean like way down like to the bottom of mariana trench or sth, figuratively speaking ofc.

    my friend who's a hobby market analyst on the internets told me this, and he knows his stuff trust me!!
