Horse Reality: a free-to-play realistic horse sim

€6,156

Horse Reality

Horse Reality is a free-to-play horse SIM with exquisite images, set in the real world with a realistic breeding and colour genetic system. You can travel around the world to buy horses or catch feral horses in the wildlife parks.

You can build up your own estate on the continent you selected at the start (Africa, Australia, Asia, Europe, North-America or South-America). From there you can buy, breed and train horses. Go to the university to start a course and when you've earned a degree, you can start your own company!

We invite you to breed horses of all kinds of colours. We created a breeding system that mimics real-life genetics! Currently, we are offering 22 different genes that determine the colour of your horse.

Besides "just playing a fun game", we'd also like to teach you more about colour genetics in horses at Horse Reality. We wrote a wiki where you can learn more about genetics in real-life and how they work in the game.

Horse Breeds

We currently have 18 breeds available for purchase in the game and are continuously working on adding more breeds. Check our wiki for the latest information.

Rewards

Once the game officially opens in October 2018, you can claim your Kickstarter Rewards.

You might notice a "premium-account" added in there. The premium account will contain options to make "life" in the game a bit easier for you. You won't see the advertisements on the bottom of the site, you can have a 2 sentence length footnote on the forum and you'll receive a "select all" button when you are in need of services (veterinarian check-ups, colour checks, etc).

*Rules apply to this tier. The user ID number will be assigned automatically and will be below #100. You cannot choose the number yourself.

*Rules apply to this tier. You need to select an existing breed of Horse Reality. Send us a picture of a horse with the white markings and/or white pattern that you want to see in the breed. Our artists will recreate that marking and/or pattern in the selected breed. The marking/pattern will be available for the entire breed, you won't have the exclusive rights to the marking/pattern. Please note that the marking and pattern need to fit the breed in reality. Meaning that you cannot choose an appaloosa pattern for Friesians, as they simply don't exist in the breed. The user ID number will be assigned automatically and will be below #25.

*Rules apply to this tier. Including the rules of the "Custom whites tier". The user ID number will be assigned automatically and will be below #10. The following breeds have already been greyscaled, so be sure to pick another one for your exclusive choice: American Paint Horse, Brumby Horse, Cleveland Bay, Hanoverian, Kathiawari, Knabstrupper, Noriker, Shetland Pony, Thoroughbred, Trakehner, Welsh Pony. 

*Rules apply to this tier. Including the rules of the "Pick the next breed tier". You'll receive user ID number #4. You can choose which NPC you would like to "design". You can work with us to create a moodboard of something you'd like to see as an NPC. Our artists will draw the NPC for you, based on the moodboard.

We're two very dedicated people who want to create an interesting game for everyone to join! Besides the two of us, we have quite some freelance artists working with us.

Risks and challenges

I, Deloryan, am working together with Tamara on this amazing game since +/- 2012. We hope that this shows you our determination to realise the full game! If we reach our first goal, I will dedicate all my time to the continuous development of Horse Reality.

Having worked on Horse Reality for a long time, I believe I have the determination necessary to let the game reach its full potential. If for whatever reason I might not be able to continue the work, I can count on the support of my friends, family and freelance team. They will help me to reach and finish the project. In case of delays or issues, I will keep you up-to-date on the process.

We really believe we can turn Horse Reality into something amazing with your help! Thanks for your confidence in us, and for your contribution to the project.
