Pony Waifu Sim v5.2 - Out Now!


The adventure finally continues! Join Blue Fast to track down that thief Raging Storm, and help Blue to reclaim her rightful trophy! Will you protect your waifu or let her solve her own problems?

This version includes:

  • Original music for many of Purple Smart's dates!
  • Several new fully animated sequences!
  • Adora-sexyness!
  • Frogs!
  • And... lewds!😳

Most existing saves from the previous version should still work. Just load your last autosave and Visit Blue Fast in the morning. As a reminder, this is an early version and some additional polish (such as music and more SFX) may be added later.

Pony Waifu Sim Update - Late June

Greetings everyone!

What's this purple horse smiling about, hmm? Perhaps soon we shall see.

Unfortunately we still were not able to finish all the necessary art and animations this month, but a lot of progress has been made nonetheless!

Translation updates!

Our wonderful translators have been hard at work bringing Pony Waifu Sim to many different languages, and are pleased to announce that we should have Chinese and Russian available in the upcoming release!

Backend Tech!

While waiting for the art and animations to finish, I have been hard at work migrating a lot of our web applications and tools to Kubernetes, which should give them improved performance, stability, and the ability to easily scale. If any of you reading this actually have any experience with Linux system administration, containers. or Kubernetes and would like to help out our studio please send us an email at: [email protected]

New Volunteers!

We have two new volunteers to help out with posing and coding! styrbo is helping us out with posing and code. xTaraz is helping us out with translations, proofreading, and posing.

Their help should be invaluable moving forward!

When is the release?

The main bottleneck right now is those final assets. After moving countries, tiarawhy is in a stable position now and should be able to work without interruptions for the time being. Pusspuss is still hard at work as well. We will put out a specific release date as soon as those assets are finished!

Pony Waifu Sim Update - Late May

Uh-oh, Anon is in for it now. Will he survive the angry fire-horse of doom?

We're still working hard to wrap up the Purple Smart route, but unfortunately there have been some delays with the animations.

tiarawhy was unfortunately displaced due to the events in Ukraine, and has had to move around a lot. PussPuss has been learning ToonBoom, the animation software we use, but it is quite complex and taken a bit longer than anticipated.

We do have backgrounds and dialogue complete all the way up through Blue Fast's final date, however.

These final animations and poses are the main thing standing in the way of release, however, and so we will strongly aim to get the release out by the end of June.

Pony Waifu Sim Translations Underway!

In more positive news, we are now able to begin translations on Pony Waifu Sim! There is a lot to translate, but if you are interested in helping out, check out our post here!

Thank you for supporting us in helping spread this game to as many people as possible!

Pony Waifu Sim Update - Late April

Update time everyone! We're still working hard to get the next update out as soon as possible, but there is still some (very lewd) character art and animations that we need to finish.

We also added a bit more polish to the other areas of the game. All the placeholder assets have been updated for the new version!

We look forward to showing you more in the coming weeks.

Calling all translators!

Great news everyone! After a good bit of tinkering, we have finally been able to set up a system with the awesome app Weblate that will make it easier for the community to contribute to translations of our current and future projects!

For now, the focus is on finalizing and adding new localizations to Hearthswarming Heat, but are looking to expand this to other projects in the future.

If you wish to join our community of volunteers, send a message to [email protected] with what languages you can assist with as well as a desired Username, Display Name, and Email if you wish it to be different than the one you send from.

Thank you all for helping us bring these ponies all around the world!

Pony Waifu Sim Update - Late March


The sexy book horse wants to give you an anotomy lesson. Make sure you pay attention, there will be a quiz. 😉

We're still crunching away at the next update. There will technically be two dates included in 5.3, and there's lots of posing work to do. We want this to be a fitting conclusion to Purple Smart's route.

We're also hard at work on the backgrounds for the future Blue Fast dates and finale, so stay tuned for more previews on those as well!

Maybe we'll see an appearance of a certain green turtle tortoise?

In other news, our Inquirers and above can check out our Soundtrack, updated with 11 new tracks!

As for a release date, we'll announce one once we are more certain that there won't be any unexpected hiccups.

Thank you all so much for your continued support, we couldn't do this without you!❤️
