We’re excited to announce that 505 Games will bring unique and charming pixel platform adventure game, Horace, to Steam for PC on Thursday, July 18.
A platforming game at heart with metroidvania-inspired abilities to be unlocked as players progress through the game, Horace invites players to overcome challenging puzzles and defeat difficult bosses while evoking a range of emotions that will leave some laughing, crying and cheering their way through a touching narrative.
505 Games is presenting players with an opportunity to help determine the launch price of Horace on Steam with a simple call-to-action of wishlisting the game from the official Steam page.
Four wishlist tiers for Horace have been created, each with a corresponding launch discount reward only activated for players once tier threshold is met.
Developed by Paul Helman and Sean Scaplehorn, Horace is a delightful platformer which centers around an inspiring story of following one’s dreams. Paul Helman quit his job with the vision of creating a game he always wanted to play. Over the next six years, Horace was born with the ultimate aim of pairing a sprawling open world with a great story not typically associated with platform games. Inspired by recent indie gems and classic fan-favorites of the genre, Horace seeks to make an emotional connection through storytelling and features full cut scenes throughout to create a cinematic platform experience. Horace also comes packed with a host of mini games peppered throughout, many of which are inspired by classic games in pop culture history. A true labor of love, Horace is a hand-crafted experience that is sure to delight fans of the 8-bit and 16-bit era.
