This is a master post for all art related to Squeakyfriend’s work on the Toy Castle. Discussion on the Toy Castle as a scrapped game concept is here: Scrapped Game Concept: The Toy Castle (Artist: Squeakyfriend) (FB Id: 34765)

The Toy Castle was a horror game that Squeakyfriend was working on while he was in the fluffy pony fandom. At some point he may have scrapped it, but Squeakyfriend kept drawing concept art of this game. The basic premise is of a fluffy mummah having to enter a mysterious “toy castle” rescue a herds missing foals. One of the villains is “Wawa” a mysterious blue alicorn. Other enemies includes zombies, a vampiric bat-fluffy ghosts and perhaps more…

The Toy Castle is a piece that I feel reflects why I consider horrorbox to be a unique box different from “abuse” or “weirdbox”. While one could argue that elements of this story is “weird”, it also seems plausible and at least consistent within its universe. Also, the monsters depicted in this story are not typical of abuse characters.

Squeakyfriend never got round to making the game, but the art was definitely interesting. The comments had more lore but with the death of the booru, it may take a while to find out the context of some of the pictures. Also included is the very last picture Squeakyfriend drew for the fluffy pony fandom, which is at the end of this gallery.

The Toy Castle was mentioned in Part 4 of the Sam Adams Guide, and is another one of Squeayfriend’s many unique ideas and contributions to the fluffy fandom.

Happy Halloween, everyone!

I’m absolutely loving the idea. This would’ve been amazing. Which makes it all the sadder that the concept was scrapped.

fluffspeak is kind of interesting from a linguistics persepective, having no 1st or 3rd person pronouns they just use the word for their people

it is also slightly infuriating cus its defo not its own language and is just babytalk and baby’s use those pronouns but whateverrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Hell yeah swing dance music is fucking great

Personally i don’t think too hard about fluffspeak and just throw in what sounds …fluffy ish.
Course i generally consider them to be as intelligent as up to a 6 year old child.

…a mentally defect 6 year old child
…that just got concussed with a softball.

But stil smart enough !

Depends on headcanon. My own personal approach is to treat fuffspeak as a fictional development of English, much like how Newspeak is treated as afictional language within the context of Orwell’s 1984. Its an approach I use for one of my larger stories.

It’s babytalk as defined by a board of middle-aged businessmen and interns who have never spent more than 15 minutes around a baby. There’s a good chance they googled it, mistook uwu-speak for genuine baby talk and went from there.

And heck yeah swing dance music IS great.
