Sometimes it takes a friend to show you the way.
(Click a bubble to start the game)

UPDATE 22.09.2012: The site-lock has been removed and the EXE projector file for the offline play is available here: http://4as.pl/derpy/Derpy.zip

Here are some tips / instructions:
- Derpy will follow the bubbles that you control, but only if they are in her direct line of sight (Derpy will literally brighten up when she sees them).
- You can make Derpy run by pressing and holding the left mouse button to increases the bubble's power, but do it for too long and the main bubble will pop. It recharges after a while, but in the meantime it casts no light so Derpy won't see it.
- Amount of smaller bubbles = amount of lives.
- Derpy will get bored if you stay in one place for too long; same if she doesn't see the bubbles.
- Derpy will not walk into any harm on her own.

The game requires powerful CPU so if you can't play it, here is a complete walkthrough: youtube.com/watch?v=mcXW87C7Zf8

People that made this game at least 20% more cooler:
Forest Rain (youtube.com/user/PutTrustInFate) by composing awesome music and SFX for cutscenes.
Decibelle (youtube.com/user/Mirisha) by lending her wonderful voice to Derpy
Resonant Waves (youtube.com/user/XResonantWavesX) by allowing me to use the lovely "Luna's Palace" and "The Temple of Rain" tracks.
PonyVisation (youtube.com/user/PonyVisation) by allowing me to use the great "Everfree Shadows" track.
And of course, special thanks to RizCifra (rizcifra.deviantart.com/) for creating the inspiring "We Are Pilots".

If you're going to disable the ability to change the quality, then don't make the game so graphic intesive that it's unplayable. The first 4 or 5 levels were a little laggy but totalyl playable. The next level went at 1 frame every 3 seconds. There was no option ot let me turn down the quality, so I can't play all the way through.
Also when going down she seem to sometimes go left randomely. I thought I'd have to restart as she just kept walking into a wall, but it eventually fixed itself. She did walk into brambles several times because of that though. Also, would be nice if the camera panning was done with the keyboard instead of with the mouse, makes beign accurate quite hard, makes scoping out the area even harder. It had potential to be pretty good from what I got to play, but has serious issues.

I assure you, quality control would have no effect as it controls anti-aliasing of vector graphics, while graphics in Derpy's Story consist mostly (90%) of bitmap graphics.
You can leave Derpy ay start of each level and scout as much as you want, since she won't hurt herself on her own.

Pure masterpiece here, guys.

Animation is excellent, art is accurate and good, The length of the game was okay, music really goes with this and the ending made me smile. Thank you 4as. Thanks.
