Pony Games Spotlight: The Underworld's Cello

Welcome to the first Pony Games spotlight of (hopefully) many. In these articles I'll bring to light every week games or mods that are horse related and noteworthy. Whether they be funny, challenging, or laughably awful, I'll most likely talk about them in these spotlights. 

For this spotlight in particular I'm also trying to raise some awareness for this pretty amazing game. God knows it deserves it.

Anyways, The Underworld's Cello is a point-and-click adventure game developed by HeroOfTime1000,  based off of similar NES games, and quite honestly it's pretty grand.

Now, this is a puzzle solving game, so I'll leave most if not all of the details out about completing the game. (Or, rather, demo. The full game isn't even OUT yet)

The game starts out with Vinyl and Octavia, who are on their way to a party on the edge of the 
Horse Everfree Forset in an abandoned mansion. Octavia apparently has better things to do than have fun.

After a little while we see the actual party, where we learn that the pony who made the directions wasn't necessarily the best person for the job.

Our dynamic duo happens upon a mansion that may or may not be the one that the party's being held in, but there is music and an eerie glow coming out of the house. Vinyl is convinced this is the place, while Octavia is reluctant to go inside. 

You know, I really like the game's plot

They go inside the house, which in turn leads to Vinyl falling through the floor.

Now, I'm not going to say anything else about what happens in the game. You'll have to find that out on your own. However, I will say this:
This game is by far one of the best I've played in a long time, and it's not even finished yet. I really recommend you download the game here.

  1. Not touching, I hate that damn Octavia + Vinyl fanon shit.

    1. And yet you still care enough to tell us all how you hate it.

  2. Not a fan of the Tavi/Vinyl ship either, not at all - but this games looks too intriguing to ignore so I guess I'll just get over myself and try it anyway!

    1. I seem to remember hearing in an interview that there will be no shipping in the game. It'll just be Scratch & Tavi as friends.

  3. Herooftime1000 here. If you have any questions, I'll answer to the best of my ability without spoiling the game.
