Luna Game is a series of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fangames, each featuring the eponymous Princess Luna as the protagonist.

But, the most noteworthy is the main Creepypasta series—created by an anonymous programmer—which each start out as a seemingly innocent, 2D platformer. (That is, until the horror shows up)

The series contains five linear installments, a prequel, and two fan-made sequels.

Six of the gamesnote  can be found at this site.

Unity Of Factors has released a track dedicated to the game on their bandcamp.

There has also been a Spiritual Successor series called Dreamy Rainbow.

Tropes that apply to the entire series:

Canon Series

Luna Game

Luna Game 2note 

  • Art Evolution: LG2 had begun the use of the improved, WindowPonies Luna sprite instead of the homemade sprite used in the first game, which had then stuck for the rest of the series.
  • Bottomless Chasm: Luna falls into a very long one, leading to her death.
  • Death Is Dramatic: Accompanied by an edited picture of Luna falling, covered in red.

Luna Game 3

  • Easter Egg: After the white noise sounds and the soundtrack changes, very subtle chattering of ponies can be heard.
  • Endless Game: Once you get to a certain point, there are only two things to do: continue running forever, or allow yourself to fall into a pit.
  • Eye Awaken: At the end of the game, you get a creepy picture of Luna's mutilated corpse whose eyes suddenly open and shrieks.
  • Fake Longevity: Apparently, a majority of the game is just spent wandering around—waiting for the background music to slow down.
  • Letting the Air Out of the Band: The initial music, "At The Gala(Finale Mix)", slows down as you journey into the darkness, before cutting to a static noise and creepy drone.
  • The Lost Woods
  • Scare Chord: The first hole in the ground you jump over causes a distorted version of Fluttershy's "COME OUT" to play, and jumping in to any hole causes her distorted "LOVE ME!!" to play (complete with scare-image).

Luna Game 4

Main Game

Luna Game End


Luna Game 5

  • Auto-Scrolling Level: During the third stage.
  • Continuity Nod/Homage: A lot of elements used in the previous games are again featured in the Fan Sequel.note 
  • Being Listening To:
    "—SHH! Someone is listening"
  • Dying Dream: The game concludes with Luna's slashed-up body at the exact location where the game started turning creepy.
  • Easter Egg:
    • Setting your computer's system time to Friday the 13th before playing brings up a cutscene hinting at the backstory. It is heavily implied that the Luna you have been controlling was really Pinkie Pienote  in some kind of elaborate illusion carried out by Nightmare Moon as a punishment or for revenge.
    • A hidden Pinkie Pie can be found shortly after the shadow ponies.note  It ties in perfectly with the ending.
    • If you hold down the keys "I" "T" and "K" before the game turns creepy, you will be greeted with a Pinkie screamer. If you hold them down in the room with the red sky, the static will run againnote . The keys do nothing in the later rooms.
  • Fan Sequel
  • Fetch Quest: You can't progress to the creepy part of the game until you've collected 9 bunnies.
  • Killer Rabbit: Possibly. Luna's corpse at the end of the game is found in the former location of the red bunny.
  • Multiple Endings: If you are caught by the camera during the third stage, Pinkie will pop up on your screen as a loud screech plays just before crashing.
  • Shout-Out:
    • In the first stage, approaching Angel Bunny will cause the Metal Gear Solid alert sound to play.
    • In the early part of the third stage, the crying of a witch can be heard in the background.
    • One of the shadow ponies, a filly, drops a line from Poltergeist IIInote :
    "Mommy? Where are you? I can't see."
    • As Homage, the end sequence uses an almost perfect port of Giygas's Lair from EarthBound.
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: Just before the game crashes, the words "You're Next" appear on the screen before a Zalgofied Pinkie is shown staring straight at you. To add insult to injury, your CD tray pops open at that exact moment.
  • Thwarted Escape:
    • Pressing Alt+F4 once the game takes a turn for the darker will close it down. A few seconds later it will come back with Pinkie Pie laughing at your failure.
    • Subverted with Ctrl+Alt+Del. While the game will yell at you, it won't actually stop you.note 
    • Pressing Escape after the game turns creepy won't end the game, but another laughing sound will play.
    • Inverted in that pressing Escape or Alt+F4 will end the game if you haven't progressed to the creepy part yet.
  • Womb Level: Though Giygas's Lair is really a cave, the scene leading up to it involves jumping into Pinkie's mouth, followed by chewing/swallowing sounds, and ending with heartbeat sounds that continue subtly in the background until you leave the level.
    • This trope can be taken literally by a controversy over a belief that The Devil's Machine (i.e. Giygas's Lair) is a representation of a giant female reproductive system.

Luna Game X

  • Eye Awaken: Pinkie does this at the end of a cutscene, just before she charges at you
  • Failure Is the Only Option: It is impossible to outrun Pinkie during the first chase.
  • Not Quite Dead: In the final area of the Game, you crush Pinkie under a block, but she comes back to chase you out of the area.
  • Self-Duplication: Pinkie does this multiple times in one area.
  • The End... Or Is It?: After beating the game and escaping Pinkie, she reappears for a split second.

The Lunar Game

Another very short fan-parody of the Creepypasta series, made by CertaintyPrinciple, which particularly puts light to the part in the first game where the player has a possibility of getting stuck in a pit. Can be found here.


How well does it match the trope?
