505 Games has announced Horace, a new adventure platformer that will see the light on July 18th on Steam. The title will allow players to unlock a Metroidvania-style skill set throughout the adventure, and invite them to solve challenging puzzles and defeat very strong bosses in a deep and emotional storyline.
505 Games will give players the chance to determine the price of Horace’s launch on Steam by simply adding it to their Steam wish list. Four different levels of discounts have been established, which will be activated only when specific objectives are reached.

Developed by Paul Helman and Sean Scaplehorn, Horace is a platform title characterized by eccentric British humor. Paul Helman left his job to devote himself to the creation of the videogame, which took six years of work. Horace will also include a series of mini-games inspired by classic pop culture titles.
