Miriam Ruiz: Pink Pony: a 3D multiplayer Tron-like racing game, with ponies

The first time I found this cute game, was around 2009, but for a bunch of reasons I haven t been able to get it into the archive until now. Pink Pony is a cute game in which you have to control a pink pony who s main goal is to last in the game more time than the other ponies. You might remember the game Tron, or the film, in which there were light cycles who left a trace behind, with which the other cycles crashed. Well, this is the similar game concept, only with cute ponies instead of light cycles. You can see a video of the game in action, if you want to get a feeling of how it is. Thomas Weber (Ginko), has published a newer version of the game (1.3.1) a couple of days ago, and that is the one that has entered Debian repositories (sid) today. Thanks, Ginko, for this lovely game! Even though the game might not seem too appealing for some of the adult users of Debian or Ubuntu, maybe some of their kids will like it as much as I do. The game is quite quick, though, so very young kids might have trouble controlling the pony. I would suspect it might be all right for kids above 9 years old, but I haven t been able to test my hypothesis, so if you find out, please tell me :)
