Chrystalize Preview: Flutterwonder

Flutterwonder is a track from 2011, created by former big artist PinkiePieSwear. An awesome dance-trance mix of So Many Wonders, the artist's penchant for beats really shows. PinkiePieSwear was also featured last game with Art of the Dress (Always Stressed Mix) and as the composer of Pony Swag.

Chrystalize Preview: Pinkie's Lie

An older track featured in the game (though what is old when the fandom's only been around since 2010?...), Pinkie's Lie is another track by WoodenToaster, who has been previously featured with Beyond Her Garden in TrotMania. Unlike that track, this one is built on sampling/covering, with the main song being Giggle at the Ghostie. However, it has a great beat, along with some devious triplets throughout, which are being advantage of for the charts!

Special note is that the PMV for this one was lost in the internet for a while, with the only existing copies on Youtube having some nasty artifacts. Striving to give you guys the best, we managed to obtain a source copy, for which we have also the cut found in-game to YouTube as a bonus preview! Check it out here.

In addition, Zenius-I-Vanisher is hosting a Tournament of Immortals 3, and I'm a contestant. Connect the dots...

Chrystalize Preview: Eurobeat Brony

Well, there was one thing that was actually true in that April Fool's Day post, and it's the fact that yes, Call Upon the Seaponies (EuroSHOOBEDOO Mix) has been added to the actual song list.

(Though, the most blatant giveaway of that was the fact that this song came out in 2012, yet we claimed this Infinite Heart pack was released in 2009. Whoops)

Though, this isn't the only Eurobeat Brony track we got on the song list for Chrystalize...!

tl;dr Chrystalize vs. Infinite Heart is fake. Seaponies, however, aren't.

Chrystalize Preview: A New Twist

We had a lot of criticism surrounding how the next TrotMania edition was being developed; but the most common complaint we that we, as a group, have changed the game way too much since the beginning of the series, and that we're too biased towards newer material...

With this in mind, I'd like to unveil something else that will be a part of the new version; it will not just be TrotMania Chrystalize: it will be TrotMania Chrystalize VS. Infinite HEART!

Infinite HEART was one of our first versions, released back in 2009, and by popular demand, we have incorporated a full, remastered remake of it playable right from within Chrystalize! See, it was released at a weird time; there wasn't your fancy-pants "Friendship is Magic" or your "G4" yet; Rarity was more prissy, Rainbow Dash always dressed in style, Pinkie Pie was more girly and less of a fourth wall breaker (but still liked parties), Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo actually had their cutie marks (and Cheerilee was the latter's mom!), Spike was a dragon, and there were ERMAGAHD SEAPONEZ!!!!

Re-live this excellent period in pony history with the all new Infinite HEART MODE; you will be able to access it in the final version of Chrystalize straight from the mode menu!

To refresh your memory, here's just some of the great songs you're going to see in :
  • Call Upon the Seaponies
  • Call Upon the Seaponies (EuroSHOOBEDOO Mix)
  • I Just Wanna Have Fun
  • That's What Makes a Friend
  • The Jamboree of Ladybugs
  • MLP Theme (G2)
  • MLP Theme (G3.5)
  • Who's a Silly Pony?
We also re-did the song artwork to be more relevant to today's generation as well, mainly because we forgot where we stored our original source files, and because we needed to make jackets too (StepMania 3.9 Plus couldn't do that, you know)

And, can you unlock the secret, hard new boss song that will also be hidden in Infinite HEART MODE? We'll see and find out.

Its so awesome that it'll leave you saying, "Betcha can't make a face crazier than ...... THIS!!"
