Now that FlutterMare is publicly released, a lot of you have been asking about the next update for Pony Waifu Sim.
The writing is all done, and my tentative estimate for its completion (with lewds!) is around the end of January 2021. With Pony Waifu Sim, in particular, there has been a large demand for features such as localization that unfortunately aren't technically feasible with the way our content is designed.
Around 80% of the dialogue could be somewhat easily localized, but the remaining 20% would require a major technical refactor.
We have learned a lot since we started on Pony Waifu Sim, and unfortunately, not a lot of that is reflected in the state of the current project. Poorly defined initial requirements of the project led to production inefficiencies and hard to debug spaghetti code in some systems.
We want to refactor the engine to take advantage of what we have learned. It will be easier to develop content in, it will support localization, and it will take advantage of YarnSpinner 2.0, a recent overhaul of the package we use to power most dialogue and posing in Pony Waifu Sim.
Starting after our next release, and while we work on the refactor, we would like to completely finish the writing for Pony Waifu Sim before we finish the project. In retrospect, not finalizing all of the writing before starting production was a huge mistake. New writing had to conform to what already exists and going back to change things became neigh impossible. By finishing the writing first, we hope to put a stop to these issues now instead of having them continue to plague us for the rest of the development.
Starting December 19, 2020, I will be dedicating my full-time to ensuring the success of StudioWhy and its projects. Since it's inception, we have been open about the fact that all of us have only been able to devote part of our time to StudioWhy. Some of us had day jobs, others have other projects. However, I have personally saved up enough from my day-jobs to be able to comfortably dedicate the entire year of 2021 to work full time on StudioWhy, and will be doing exactly that.
We will release other, much smaller, projects in the meantime.
We still want to be releasing something while I refactor the engine for Pony Waifu Sim. To do this, we will be collaborating with other fandom artists on much smaller interactive projects. Some of these projects will allow us to test the functionality of our refactored Pony Waifu Sim engine as well.
Our recently announced collaboration with PussPuss is an example of one of these projects. This Christmas, we are hoping to release a short, cute, and lewd Hearths Heating-themed game with Ponka Pone and the Royal Crystal Couple.
Starting in January, we will post monthly updates on the progress of the writing for Pony Waifu Sim until it is finished.
These are some big changes, and we would like to hear your feedback on them. So please don't be shy to let us know what you think.
Thank you all so much for your support!
Public Release 0.999!
IT'S FINALLY HERE! FlutterMare public release 0.999!
There's Flutterbutt's, Fluttercocks, Flutterboobs, all the Flutterparts your heart desires!
You can also customize this pretty mare in all sorts of ways, can you unlock them all?
We're still working on getting the 15.ai voices in, so last minute we decided to make it v0.999, so stay posted for the real v1.00.
After we get those in, there may still be a few additions we make to this project, but for now, FlutterMare is mostly feature complete.
Stay tuned for an update on Pony Waifu Sim and our other projects!

Progress Update and an Important Issue
Hey everyone, Scion here!
We are still hard at work trying to finish up FlutterMare before the end of the month. After that, we plan to post an update about the progress on Pony Waifu Sim.
The focus of this post, however, is on an issue that affected us just over a week ago and affects adult content creators as a whole.
You can read more about it here, on our new blog: https://studiowhy.net/wiki/display/BLOG/2020/10/26/The+Tyranny+of+the+ToS
Essentially, I think that as adult content creators we need to create our own ecosystem. One where we won't have to risk having our data deleted without notice. This issue is very important to me, and I'd appreciate it if you could share this and provide feedback, thoughts, and opinions.
Thank you all so much!
Quick Update on FlutterMare
Hey everyone, We have been working really hard to finish FlutterMare as soon as possible, but ultimately we decided that it still needs some more time. It won't be tonight, but we will release 1.0 this month.
Stay tuned, we are super excited to show off what we've done!
FlutterMare 0.92 - Android Build Release
Hey everyone! The optimization for the Android build of FlutterMare took a bit longer than expected, so unfortunately our deadline is going to be overshot by a bit. We are going to aim for a 1.0 release by October 11th.
Unfortunately the WebGL build was facing more serious issues and we have decided to deprecate it for now.
Meanwhile I have updated the existing links to point to the 0.92 version as well as have added the Android build.
In other news the writing for the next part of Blue Fasts route is being finalized.
Feel free to send us Feedback at https://studiowhy.net if you encounter any issues.
FlutterMare v0.9 for Inquirers!
It's here! The next release of FlutterMare!
This version brings with it:
* Two new cock types!
* Futa and herm modes!
* A sexy blindfold!
* A new background!
* UI Improvements!
* Subscriber credits
Just to clear up some confusion, we have decided that FlutterMare version 0.9 and early access to 1.0 will be available to Inquirers and above.
The reason for this is because the different participants in this project give early access at different tiers, and so we agreed upon a price that was fair to everyone involved.
As a reminder, FlutterMare will be released free to everyone a short while after we release the final 1.0 version.
FlutterMare and Pony Waifu Sim Updates!
We have some updates on both Pony Waifu Sim as well as FlutterMare v0.9.
Progress on the next part of the Blue Fast route was delayed a bit due to some technical issues mentioned previously as well as our work on FlutterMare. However, the writing is almost finished and we also have begun working on the writing which ties up the loose ends on the Purple Smart route (with lotsa lewds).
As for FlutterMare, version 0.9 should be released to patrons within the next few days, and we are hoping to release version 1.0 by the end of the month, which will conclude the FlutterMare project.
After FlutterMare 1.0, we will be focusing on releasing the next version of Pony Waifu Sim as soon as possible.
In other news, Mittsies and TobyArt are planning a new project called Ponyvania: Redux. StudioWhy will be providing resources and assistance, but we aren't planning on being as involved as we were with FlutterMare. We have a lot of cool things planned in the coming months, so certainly be sure to stay tuned!
