Marvel Horse, aka Celestial Equine, is a fantasy horse breeding sim that was funded on Kicksarter back in 2014. Shrouded in mysteries as thick as the flowing manes of the fantastical beasts therein, it has been a very quiet project up until very recently. A March 21st update announced the project being back in action, but is available to backers only. The project owner could not be reached for comment, so I’m left only to speculate.
What secrets of magic and whimsy are hidden away from the public eye? A click over to the Marvel Horse website reveals a domain for sale. A click onto the alternate Celestial Equine site brings me to a blank page and a logo. The Twitter account has not posted since 2014. It seems, perhaps, that a mere mortal like me could not begin to comprehend the true beauty of the equine form. Silently, they judged me, with those soulful eyes of theirs, and found me unworthy. The fall of their hooves echoed into the infinite night and I am left to my mundane life, never to know the truth of their majesty.
Now, naysayers might throw blind accusations of the project going nowhere with such secrecy around the first update in two years. Truly we are a species of negativity. It’s no wonder the maned ones have declined to bless us with any further information. Maybe in another two years they shall test us again. I, for one, stand ready. I will not disappoint them next time.
