What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I am a small student indie with very limited opportunities. The only option for me is early access. Battle of Hořice is also quite a unique game on Steam, and a lot of feedback will be needed to develop the game into the final state.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“About 6 to 12 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“I plan to add new missions and more details on the map. Also, I will try to replace the current buildings with the historical ones if more sources are found. I also aim to increase the customization options for the player's characters.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All the main features are implemented in the early access state. The game consists of tens of missions and leaderboards so you can compare yourself with the other players. The basics of the customization are finished, but the selection is not as big as in the final product.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Price is going to stay throughout Early Access but I plan to slightly increase it once the full version comes out.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I am looking forward to reviews of testers and their feedback. I will do my best, as always, to incorporate as many adjustments based on feedback as possible into the game. Any gameplay feedback will be greatly welcome as well. The easiest way to contact me and have a discussion with me and other players is via Discord: or via the Steam forum.”

About This Game

The story takes place in 1423 in Eastern Bohemia during a religious civil war. More precisely, before and during the battle at Hořice/Horschitz. Fight under the leadership of the legendary Jan Žižka from Trocnov and experience the hardships of battle in this era! You will experience several days before and after the battle during the game, and your tasks will be to prepare the army for the fight, gather intelligence, earn the support of locals, and more.

The game consists of 30+ missions that start with a short historical anecdote that CAN BE SKIPPED. Each mini-game is simple with a unique challenge, such as collecting coins on the map, racing around the prehistoric racing circuit of Gustav Havel, or fighting enemy knights. Experience history from the front seat and help Jan Žižka win the civil war!

You can play the game alone but also with your family or in a group of up to 4 friends on the keyboard/controllers. The game is well suited for kids, casual players, and playing with a girlfriend/boyfriend. You work together as a team, so it is OK if some of the players are beginners.

I am a Ph.D. student indie developer. I have been developing the free2play franchise "Engine Evolution" for 6 years, and I have decided that I would like to try a different challenge. When the 600-year anniversary of this battle, which happened in my hometown, approached, I decided to capture this event in my next game.
