This year was a very busy year for Derby Days’ team. An Autumn update, Spring update, Midsummer update, Halloween update, Cinco de Mayo update, Valentine’s Day update, and … a Christmas update to wrap up 2012! Oh my, SO many new horses were introduced this year. So, let me ask you, which horse is your favorite? This morning, I suddenly wondered “How can so many creative horses come from the Derby Days team?” and then I wondered “Which 3 of the year are their favorites?’ So I headed over to the Derby Days team after lunch and met HyunSoo, the current producer of Derby Days. He was a bit shy to take a picture so I don’t have any photos of him (I’ll try to get a candid shot of him next time, but only if you guys want). Here are the 3 horses he chose as his favorite. Too bad Flamingo wasn’t included, he’s the best looking one in my farm. And he’s my favorite.
Name: Rabbit Ears
Date of Birth: On the 25th of December, 1895, as the sun was at its highest point in the sky.
Characteristic: So fierce that if will strike you back if you get on her nerves!
Why is she your favorite?: I’m Catholic and I’ve attended church for as long as I can remember, so Easter always reminds me of my childhood. I retired my position as a choir leader when I had to prepare for my SATs, and I couldn’t start again due to my busy life – but I become sentimental whenever I think back about those happy days. When I look at Rabbit Ears, I can hear and see the little kids giggling and running around after the quiet Easter mass.
Name: Spring Lotus
Date of Birth: On the 8th of April, in the year B.C.E. 563.
Characteristic: Very generous but also full of passion
Why is he your favorite?: I happened to attend a Buddhist high school so whenever Buddha’s Birthday comes, I think of my high school friends and art class mates. I designed a Spring Lotus to reflect both the excitement of the 21st century (his lotus likes funky hair) and the inner peace of Buddha (his yellow body). Yeah, I think that Spring Lotus reflects the life and dreams I yearned for.
Name: Flame Runner
Date of Birth: Unknown
Characteristic: His eyes are full of flames so it’s hard to tell his emotions. But the flames turn pink whenever he’s in front of pretty girls!
Why is he favorite?: Even after all my childhood schooling, I somehow still made games and violent RPGs with plenty of skeletons and monsters. I guess it’s just my nature. So, I took a chance during Halloween season 2012 and created Flame Runner! He stands out from all those other pretty and dreamy horses in Derby Days and… I LIKED IT! Hopefully he burns away all of the bugs in Derby Days
It was very interesting to see every horses has their own special stories. I’ll try to bring you more next time! Can’t wait to see what kind horses will surprise us next year. Oh, guess what. Derby Days just got a Christmas update! Get it updated now and let it snow in Derby Days~!
