Harold vs The Horde is a point and click adventure game with RPG elements and cthulhu that's crowdfunding on KickstarterHarold is just your normal guy temping a job. Unfortunately, this job happens to be the assistant to an exorcist. One day something goes wrong and said exorcist cannot complete his duties. It’s up to Harold to keep evil from invading our world – if he can. Harold VS The Horde is one of those games that hopes to balance humor with horror. The themes are certainly there, of course we can’t yet see if they mesh together. Whatever the case may be this is a game inspired by the likes of classic point and click adventures which is apparent from the get go.

The world is presented in 2D with pixelated characters and you’re asked to collect relics, solve puzzles, and hopefully save humanity against the likes of Satan or Cthulhu. An interesting facet of Harold VS The Horde is that this hellspawn horde can actually be used to your advantage. At times during the game you can choose to use their powers to get your way. Of course, playing with forces like that might very well lead to bad things down the road. It seems depending on your reliance or avoidance of “the horde” you will actually get different endings.

Harold vs The Horde is a point and click adventure game with RPG elements and cthulhu that's crowdfunding on KickstarterThere are said to be light RPG elements in the game, but there’s no real explanation or demonstration of what that means so far. Harold VS The Horde is aiming for PC release and currently has no live Steam Greenlight campaign. The goal is set a bit high at $14,000 so we’ll see if classic point and click adventure fans discover it.

Glad to see the BL visual novel Sentimental Trickster was funded. How about those #Kickstarter stretch goals? https://t.co/AEU8LaeD6M - 5 years ago
