We’re pleased to announce the release of the HorseGame demo! Taking place on the grounds of an abandoned monastery overlooking the pristine coastal waters of Saddle Greccia, the playable area is about the size of a 12-16 player multiplayer map and is packed with a variety of enemies, collectables, and combinable spells to play around with.

Available for Windows, OSX, and Linux, you can find the download for the demo below, and you can also find the gameplay trailer here. We’d like you to keep in mind that this is still an early demo of the game, so what you see here will still be undergoing many changes before the release of the full game.

Video: Update 4

7 Comments

In the upcoming demo you will be free to explore a large, open map filled with different types of enemies to fight, spells and items to collect, and even a few easter eggs to find. The map has been made exclusively for this demo to feature our game without spoiling the story. Watch the trailer for it if you haven’t already.

With the upcoming video and playable demo, it’s about time we had an update! This means a complete overhaul of the website itself, but also many server optimizations and improved hardware. Along with HorseGame news, I’ll also be posting some more technical dev-blog style content here.

The two main possibilities are Unreal-style arena battles, and Co-op in the story.
CAN I USE MY OC PLS
We currently don't plan on having character customization for singleplayer, but multiplayer may have that.

The Horse Game uses all original or legally licensed assets, and we have discussed the matter with knowledgeable people. We're fine.

That is not planned, but contact us if you are interested in helping with localization.

We hope to keep this game free for as long as our developers can feed themselves.

Yes, you're free to do whatever you like with gameplay videos you create.
