Added DiffLines:

''Starswirl Academy'' is a visual novel created by the Zap Apple Project. Originally based on ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', it has since become its own unique story, separate from the show.

You play as a new transfer student, Tom, fresh off the train. Since you're a senior, it seems as though every one of your classmates knows exactly what their talents are. You couldn't be more directionless, but that's why you chose to come here, right? It's time to find out exactly who you are.

The game is currently in development, and has no set release date. A demo is available [[http://rosin.moe/starswirl/index.html# here]].
