RE: My Little Pony and Amnesia...

I honestly can't see pony maps becoming as big a problem as jumpscares. Think about this: jumpscares are universal and can be used both seriously and jokingly, meaning they have a wider appeal for use in these mods. Jumpscares are widely used, even outside Amnesia, and have a massive reputation in horror games/movies, so its only natural that one by one people would default to using them in their stories. They're an easy, go-to scare tactic that anyone can toss into their story to make it "better". Ponies are very different. You cannot make a serious mod with ponies, so they're going to be very limited to how they can be used...I highly doubt you'll see any mod try to use ponies in a serious manner, meaning you're only going to see them in the joke mods, and those are very easily distinguishable on sight, so avoidance is easy. Ponies are not a common thing in the horror genre, and most people making mods are going to try to be scary, so they're going to default to jumpscares much quicker than they would ponies. And even as far as joke mods go, you are definitely going to see a lot more internet memes or PewDiePie content than you will ponies. So it's very very unlikely that they're going to spawn off and essentially become the new jumpscare of Amnesia mods. This paranoia that ponies are growing into this massive thing thats going to overtake the game is ridiculous because they aren't flexible enough for a wide use, and as we can see here, they're not so popular to the game that they can grow into a problem.

Ponies growing into a big problem like jumpscares is just...honestly, impossible.

I play Amnesia Custom Stories a couple times a week on Livestream
