“Undead Horde is a dream come true for many of us. As it combines elements from our favorite games. Like Diablo, Overlord, Pikmin and even the canceled Nekro. Which looked promising. Undead Horde is part action RPG. And part RTS which results in fun and fresh gameplay. After over a year in development. We’ve been super happy to see the game being picked up by streamers. During the last two weeks.”, said Sampo Töyssy, the lead developer of Undead Horde at 10tons.
Undead Horde takes place in a fantasy world. Since the living have driven the undead into exile. While the main hero Orcen the Necromancer is captive. Hiden in a magical urn by the paladins.
So the story starts as a cavalier chicken. Who accidentally breaks the urn and releases the prisoner. Since he is free, Orcen needs to raise the dead. So he can form his army. Taking back the world from the paladins and the living. So yes, Undead Horde really is a “necromancer simulator”.

So the main hook of Undead Horde is the Necromancer. Since he can re-animate almost any dead creature. Therefore his army comes from multiple sources. Including the corpses in the battlefield. As well as graves and ultimately calling statues.
Also note, you have to unlock statues. Before they can be put to use. The only limiting factor is the command size of the Necromancer. The command scope can increase in various ways. Sorry, no spoilers.
In addition to necromancery in Undead Horde. The Necromancer can use various weapons and items. The items provide numerous options for boosting the minions. As well as the necromancer. Items are procedurally generated. So there is an endless amount of interesting items. And also combos that can be discovered.
