This premium third-person action adventure game has you playing as Horn, the young blacksmith’s apprentice who must fight monstrous creatures – actually your fellow villagers transformed into dark creatures by a curse.

Released in August 2012, Horn is set in a lush and beautifully rendered fantasy world. The game received some rather raving reviews due to its wonderful graphics, precise controls, Zelda-like appeal, great voice acting completed by Austin Wintory’s soundtrack and an addictive combination of puzzle-solving and sword slashing action.
