The project is supposed to be a parody rather than a full game. Persson wrote that it took about 2 hours of working on the Unity engine to create the game.
Cliffhorse is the first commercial game from Markus Persson after the success of the famous Minecraft game. The popularity of Minecraft is outstanding; the game became one of the best-selling games and approached about 50 million sales.
In Cliffhorse, players can control a horse that can climb absolutely everywhere in the game: to any mountain, slope or sometimes even go vertical.
