Game Synopsis:

Horn is a revolutionary third-person action adventure game where anyone can fully explore and enjoy a beautiful and engaging console-style world, all controllable by touch gestures.  Inspired by the endearing character-based console games, Horn takes the richness of intricate worlds to explore, entertaining characters, thought-provoking puzzles, the excitement of combat, and memorable extraordinary situations – and makes them accessible for everyone to pick up and play.

Based loosely on the Old English tales of King Horn, you play as a young blacksmith’s apprentice named Horn who wakes up to finds your village and lands over run by large fantastic, and sometimes humorous, monsters. It is revealed these creatures are actually the people and animals from your village transformed by a curse, and you alone have the power to free them. On your incredible adventure you carry the loud-mouthed head of one such fantastic creature with you – a somewhat uncooperative and ill-tempered but grudgingly helpful sidekick. Along with this new companion you must use your sword, crossbow, trusty musical horn, and wits to explore the lands, defeat the enemies, and solve puzzles in your quest to undo the curse that engulfs your homeland.
