Studio unveils new images from indie sci-fi platformer
As Orphan’s Kickstarter campaign is nearing the half-way point and just under 25 percent of its goal raised, the game’s studio is releasing new details about the silhouette-styled platformer.
New images reveal that Orphan’s alien-invasion storyline takes the character far beyond the game’s Appalachian setting as the young boy appears fighting aboard a large alien spacecraft high above the earth. Though the game is often compared to Limbo for its visual style, developer Brandon Goins hopes the new images and scenes in the game’s teaser trailer show gameplay that is less Limbo and a little more Contra.
Orphan’s story pits an 8-year old boy against an army of alien machines during an overnight alien invasion. The gameplay is a mixture of stealth and action and features a variety of items and military weapons to help along the way. Orphan is shooting for 10+ ESRB and PEGI 12 ratings.
