* TechnologyMarchesOn: When the game was released, FMV was in it's infancy and the full motion MPEG videos in the game couldn't be played without plug in card for your PC with a built in hardware MPEG decoder - PCs of that era lacked sufficiently powerful processors and enough memory to decode MPEGs using software. The game was even bundled with the cards as a demonstration of their abilities.

The Horde is a 1994 "defense" videogame from the studio that made StarControl. The player is Chauncey, a peasant orphan [[RaisedByWolves Raised By Cows]] (yes) who lives in the kingdom of Franzpowanki. While serving at a royal banquet, he saves King Winthrop the Good from choking and is knighted, awarded with the deed to the [[GreenHillZone Shimto Plains]] and the sword Grimthwacker. Chauncey then builds the plains into thriving village, frequently having to defend them from the titular Horde. After building a prosperous village and wiping out enough of the Horde, he is given the deed to other areas. Each of the additional areas contain gimmicks, for example the desert level requires you to irrigate the land (build a moat) to be able to get the grass needed to build anything.

* HostageSpiritLink: Of a sort. In the Tree Realms of Alburga, cutting down trees reduces your max HP, as well as increasing the number of Hordelings in every season (because they're now homeless). The Chancellor, of course, makes it clear that when the going gets tough, the tough get chopping!

* AcquiredPoisonImmunity: Played with. Kronus Maelor poisons a drink that he gives to Chauncey, but all it does is make Chauncey comment on its unusual flavor. It turns out that the reason the poison didn't work was because [[spoiler: it only works on the Horde. Cue Maleor trying a tiny pinch, then falling to the floor gagging.]]
