FYI, we moved

I am told that this site is still getting good traffic, so here's the tl;dr version of that last post: PonyvilleFM is our new host/partner, and we no longer actively maintain the old TrotMania site anymore.

http://trotmania.ponyvillefm.com is our new URL. We got a forum and a 200% cooler downloads page.

TM III will finally be released this month, and while we will tell you about it here in case you forgot to update your bookmarks, future posts and updates have been on the new site.

The start of a new era

Dear Trotters,

I never actually expected TrotMania to be this much of a success. We're still, in my opinion, not the biggest fan project in the brony community, but the fact that we've gotten this big is shocking.

So, about that "big announcement" I teased yesterday? Well, here it is...

Hold on to your hooves...

A special announcement is coming soon

To some, the news I am teasing may be our "worst-kept secret", but we are preparing for a massive change that will impact TrotMania as a whole.

No, it is not the release of TM III. It is something a lot bigger than that.

But what is it, you ask?

Stay tuned...

From the creator of TM...

No, this isn't TrotMania IV, or III for that matter (obviously), this is Obelisk. It's a separate project that I started on a whim because I really really really really really really really wanted to do a StepMania theme that wasn't overtly pony-related for once. The fact that its color scheme is a bit like Chrystalize is coincidence; and yes, unlike the Chrystalize theme, this actually does work correctly with the current StepMania 5 Beta 4 that TM III is being built around.

It's designed as a more "traditional"-looking theme with a minimal and "kinetic" aesthetic, while still incorporating modern amenities such as jacket support (which means yes, the TrotMania packs still look nice at home in here). The screenshots alone don't do it justice, so if you're looking for a little something to tide you over until TM III comes out for real, I invite you to give it a try.

A New Year, A New Night-venture!

Firstly, of course...

Happy New Year!

And secondly, as promised...

We would officially like to welcome you to the TrotMania III: Aternum Obscurum Public Beta! Our last big tease we had on Halloween, and things have changed quite a bit since: we've not only polished up the previous preview songs, but there is now pretty much an entire base set! Of course, we are still working on things: there will still be, a little later on, a larger "main" release with the theme, more songs, and all that jazz too, but for now...

You interested in getting the best experience, read on...
