Horace is Super Rare’s next physical release - It’s not a race, but be quick

The charming but tough platformer gets a physical version soon when Horace gets a Super Rare release

Charming indie platformer Horace is set to receive a physical release, thanks to the lovely people over at Super Rare. Pre-orders are set to open on Thursday, January 27, at 18:00 BST. Like most Super Rare releases, Horace is limited to 4,000 copies, so it’s best to dive in quickly if you want to ensure you snag a copy.

While it might not be the most well known, Horace has been something of an indie darling on Switch ever since its release. A tough-as-nails platformer about a robot called (funnily enough) Horace, this title is packed to the rafters with fantastic dialogue, tongue-in-cheek humour, and knowing nods to pop culture and famous works.

Created by lone developer Paul Helman over nearly a decade, the pixelated platformer is an astonishing achievement, and Nintendo Life scored it 10/10, calling it a “fantastic, emotional, laugh-out-loud tour-de-force”. This physical release is a great time to pick the title up, and like most Super Rare releases it’s ready to ship very soon after pre-orders open.

Have a peek at the trailer below to see just how charming Horace looks.
