Them's Fightin' Herds is a 2D fantasy fighting game developed by Mane6 and published digitally by Humble Bundle for the PC on February 22, 2018 (as a Steam Early Access title).
Set in the fantasy world of Fœnum, players control one of six sentient four-legged hoofed creatures (each a champion of the world's tribes) as they face each-other in a friendly competition to determine which one of them will face the champion of an army of carnivorous beasts (known as the Predators).
It began development in 2012-2013 as a fangame for the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic animated series (titled Fighting is Magic), featuring the series' characters as playable fighters. After a cease and desist from the Hasbro toy company, the game was restructured with a new world, new story, and new character designs (all with involvement by Lauren Faust, the creator of the series it was originally based off). Along with being crowdfunded (through Indiegogo), the game also received contributions from Lab Zero (who allowed them to switch from the 2D Fighter Maker engine to their proprietary Z-Engine, previously used for Skullgirls).
Owners of Blazblue: Central Fiction, Skullgirls (with the 2nd Encore upgrade), and Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator- (with the REV 2 upgrade) have special cosmetic items unlocked for the online lobby system.
