How much do you know about horses? I dont know very much. As far as Im concerned, they really can do press-ups like Roach in The Witcher 3, or double-jump like Torrent in Elden Ring.
Alice Ruppert knows a lot more about horses than I do. Shes been obsessed with them ever since she was a child. She would draw them, play games about them, and many years later she would eventually make games about them.
How she got her horse-break in games makes for a great origin story. The way she tells it, she complained so much about bad horse representation in games that eventually someone gave her a job and told her to do better, and thats what shes doing now, making Horse Tales: Emerald Valley Ranch, which is coming out really soon.
