505 Games launches player-driven launch pricing for Horace

by on July 2, 2019

505 Games has announced it will be publishing pixel platform adventure game Horace on PC via Steam.

Developed by Paul Helman and Sean Scaplehorn, Horace is a platforming game with metroidvania-inspired abilities to unlock as you progress through the game. Players will have to overcome challenging puzzles and defeat difficult bosses while experiencing a touching narrative.

505 Games is presenting players with an opportunity to help determine the launch price on Steam with a simple call-to-action of wishlisting the game on the official Steam page.

There are four wishlist tiers, each with a corresponding launch discount reward which is only activated for players once the tier threshold has been met:

  • Tier 1: 1K wishlists = £8.99 (10% discount) 
  • Tier 2: 50K wishlists = £7.50  (25% discount) 
  • Tier 3 100K wishlists = £4.99  (50% discount) 
  • Tier 4: 200K wishlists = £2.50  (75% discount)

If the final tier is reached by the community on Steam on or before the deadline of 16 July, Horace will be available for all players to purchase with a discount of 75% off at launch for one week. After that the game will revert back to the full purchase price of £9.99.

Horace is due for release on 18 July.
