You don´t wanna play with the fire in “Orphan”.

Press release:
February, 2015 – The silhouette-styled indie platformer Orphan is looking to a PS4 release if the game can make its way through its crowdfunding phase

Set in rural Appalachia to a story of an overnight alien apocalypse, Orphan launched its campaign on Kickstarter last week and has reached just under 15 percent of its $32,000 goal. Developer Windy Hill Studio hopes adding PS4 support, as well as additional backer tiers, will give the campaign a much-needed boost.

“With Kickstarter support waning in the gaming community I set small goals with small tiers and tried to run a conservative campaign,” said studio owner Brandon Goins. “Supporters are saying Orphan needed to go bigger, all the while I’m constantly asked by console gamers if Orphan is coming to PS4. I’m listening, and hoping these changes can help get the campaign back on track.”

Orphan’s plays as a stealth/action platformer centered on a mostly defenseless 8 year old boy in an Earth invaded by hostile alien forces. If it succeeds in its Kickstarter it will be one of many Game Maker: Studio games recently announced for PS4 since the engine added support for PlayStation platforms last year.

About Orphan:
Orphan is about a young boy, presumably the sole survivor of an overnight alien invasion. You will sneak across the countryside through open fields and dense forests, over dangerous mountains and through lush valleys, ducking behind rocks and trees all while being pursued by an army of machines designed to destroy all life.

However the machines have their weaknesses and they carry powerful weapons that may be able to be used against them. Orphan draws inspiration from the classic 2D games of gaming’s golden era. Orphan focuses on immersive gameplay, visuals and atmosphere and channels classics like Another World, Blackthorne and Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysey, with a touch of Journey to Silius.
