The Fall of Equestria Tech Demo was the first publicly released version of the game, created by Lleeron, and LemonLake. It featured early game music by Medium Minus on the title screen, and lacked the battle theme that had been in the works for 2 months. It was released on August 1st 2012 12AM PST. There were chances of the Tech Demo being released late.
The Fall of Equestria Tech Demo was later renamed Tech Demo I (I being the roman numeral for 1). Hinting at the idea of future Tech Demos.
