Hasbro C&D's Horse Game...

...Is NOT a headline that you would want to read today!

Luckily we bring only good news, mainly the demo release of "Horse Game" by Equidev.
They've sent us a press release that we've copypasta'd below, with all the info - should be live in about an hour! (8PM EST - 7PM CENTRAL)

We’re pleased to announce the release of the much anticipated 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 on our site, 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.

The full HorseGame will be a free, 3D action-adventure platformer, where we aim to make the Adventure Mode a fully fleshed-out experience complete with voice acting and cutscenes. Alongside Adventure Mode, you will be able to duke it out with friends online in our arena-style match mode, where the combat will be based on what exists in adventure mode, but modified and balanced around player vs. player gameplay.

To address concerns some of you have had: We currently believe it is not likely for Horsegame to be C&D’d since the game features entirely original settings and characters. This will also be true for the full game.

Let us know if you have any questions, comments, or other feedback by emailing us at contact(at)equidev.net. And don’t forget to follow us on twitter @SprakleDev, subscribe to us on YouTube, and follow us on tumblr to catch all of our future updates!

  1. Cool. Instead of at least using LoE-style models, they're just going to take them from SFM and Gmod. Yes, this screams quality from the mountains.

    1. Those models happen to be used in SFM and Gmod, they're not being taken from those games.

    2. Thanks for pointing exactly what he said.

    3. this is a non-profit fan game developed by a small team. these people don't exactly have a bottomless well of time or resources.

  2. As long they put applesack and charity in the game,I'm happy

  3. Man, you had me scared for a second there. Well played, Horse News.

  4. It's like hat in time, but this is better! How did this get to be better!?

  6. That's a really nice game.

    Only two complaints :
    - There's horrible lag when picking up exp, otherwise smooth 60FPS
    - You can't fly. So LoE is still the better game.

    I love the combat mechanics. LoE did a shit job at combat, but this game is awesome at it. And the wearables are a nice touch.

    >Great job! Your mission was a success
    >Now you get to play this game over and over until you die.
    9/10 : Can't wait for next version. Moar pls.

  7. Explored the map for 1 hour straight, this seems very promising. great job!

  8. HN writers are slowly getting funnier.
