In Orphan, a sidescrolling platformer from Windy Hill Studios, players find themselves in the shoes of a young boy trying to survive a night of fire and death as aliens invade his small town with their sights set on eradicating all he holds dear. Amidst this backdrop the image of a decaying rural America riddled with preachings of hellfire and the end of the world combine to paint a portrait of a world on the brink of disaster that you must save with a both military and alien weapons as the game takes a distinct action-driven tone.
After having been voted through Steam Greenlight in a mere four days, the team at Windy Hill Studios hopes that this head wind of success will carry over to their newly launched Kickstarter campaign and then later into the game’s projected early 2016 release date. “The feedback has been great and I’m relieved to see there are folks out there interested in playing something I’ve been pouring my heart into,” said developer and studio owner Brandon Goins. “This campaign will determine whether Orphan gets made and to exactly what degree I can realize the original vision.”
