A downloadable game

Thank you to everyone who tried the demo! Horace has finally launched on Steam and so please go and download the full game. If you're new to this page, unfortunately, the demo is no longer available but here is a brief description of the game to encourage you to head over to Steam.


Eccentric British humour blended with a cinematic narrative that has never been seen before in a platform adventure game.

Horace is a story-driven, platform game peppered with nostalgic, popular culture references which will bring a smile to any gamer who enjoys the 8 and 16 bit era!

Learn how to master your strongest robot abilities and reunite Horace with his long-lost family. Adventure across the world - and time and space - to save mankind from total destruction. Run and jump your way through a comical but touching story told by the charming robot protagonist and use your wits to overcome classic 2D platforming challenges, all whilst cleaning up the mess left behind from the Robot War! Experience tons of variety along the way with parodies of classic mini games ranging from rhythm action to FPS.

If you like the look of Horace, please share with friends and family - word of mouth is SOOOO important.  To shout at ME directly, I'm on Twitter @horacedev
