Unfortunately, I don't have anything positive to say to the person who wrote The Answer. I'll just leave it at that.
In any kind of fan-made media, it's easy to say "I want to create __." Ideas are cheap. Actually creating stuff is the difficult part. It takes huge amounts of passion and dedication in order to create a single Freeware Game
, a Fan Fic
of a reasonable length, a Webcomic
that lasts more than a few weeks, and so on. Also, if you can't charge people money for your fan-made creative works, then it's difficult to justify investing much time and dedication. Because of these two factors, there are countless numbers of Dead Fic
, unfinished series, games that never got past conceptual or demo status, etc.
Speaking specifically about MLP:FIM, if you search through the Collab board on Ponychan
, you will find three or four seemingly promising threads where a person talked about making a visual novel based on Friendship is Magic. Each thread died quietly. It's probably safe to assume that the posters lost interest, or had too many other commitments.
The only MLP:FIM VN which currently seems active is Gentlecolts' planned game Love is Magic
. Updates aren't very frequent. But they have a group assembled, and they might be looking for more help.
