From the author of Jeff Koons Must Die!!! and Can You Hear Me Now? comes Beating a Dead Horse with a One-Trick Pony, a first-person RPG (ArtPG) with a narrative, mild melee combat, and some platforming elements. The game is a sequel to Jeff Koons Must Die!!! and is set in the same destroyed museum that the previous game ended in. Jonakin developed the game between November 2017 and November 2018. As he explains on Steam, "It was a very personal project that deals with my struggles navigating the pitfalls of the art world and my realizations and epiphanies regarding the complex systems within that world. It is a love letter as well as a Dear John letter."
Hunter Jonakin was born in North Alabama, where he spent his formative years. In his early twenties, he moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota with a group of friends, where they played, recorded, and obsessed over every facet of underground/indie rock music. Ten years after venturing to the frigid north Jonakin went back to school and finished a BFA in visual art at the University of Minnesota. In 2011 he completed a MFA in studio art at Florida State University. Currently, Jonakin resides and makes art in Minneapolis, MN.
