The Horace Collection

Back The Horace Collection Kickstarter!

Fans of the ZX Spectrum classic series should back The Horace Collection crowdfunder campaign on Kickstarter.

The Horace Collection is an official boxset of the classic ZX Spectrum series, with nostalgically designed cassettes and cases, and some attractive pledge options and stretch goals. Produced by Pixel Jockey, this collection is presented like a 1990s VHS boxset, as if the Horace games were classic movies, rather than games.

We love it!

While the Horace games are among the ZX Spectrum games you can play on Steam, these are the original ZX Spectrum games, on cassette, for the original machine.

This compilation features the three games featuring the popular character: Hungry Horace, Horace Goes Skiing, and Horace & The Spiders. You also get the option of upping the basic pledge (£32 for the boxset alone) to add a ceramic mug, or a mug and enamel badges.

Only one stretch goal is listed (A3 posters) but there is a hint that others are planned if the project goes that far.
