Solo Post
What do you love about your game?
"At this point it would be very easy to say that I don't like my game since I've worked on it for roughly 1/6 of my life and it's literally all that I have done, 7 day a week, for the last 4 years. However, I do still love it, so that has to say something!

I guess the main reason I still love it is that it is literally the sum total of my life's work. Not only have I spent the last 7 years making Horace, some of the ideas have been floating round my head for decades. Having created all artwork, animation, music, designed nearly all the gameplay and even did a degree of the coding myself, it's hard to not love it at least a little bit.


I personally find the story both touching and expansive with many twists along the way so I would say one of my favourite things was creating the characters and how they affect the narrative. Although, as I say, everything is essentially my creation, I do still genuinely enjoy playing through and parts still very much make me smile.

I also thoroughly enjoyed designing the gameplay, due to the huge amount and the ever changing nature it constantly provided me with a challenge. Having worked as an artist in the games industry for decades, this was the first game where everything really is 'mine', so while it may not be perfect most of it feels how I want it to, it really feels like it's MY game!"
