In development in some form since 2014, the time has nearly come for Windy Hill Studio and their game Orphan
. A dark 2D platformer set in the "deep dark hills of eastern Kentucky", the visual style is immediately reminiscent of Playdead's LIMBO
, but the folks at Windy Hill have promised that the game is more of a Metroidvania with plenty of weapons, power-ups and boss battles. Some of these can be seen in the recently released trailer for the game, made to announce the game's release date on PC, but absolutely still worth checking out for those of us on console.
The trailer may only specify Orphan
's PC release date, but Windy Hill has said that the console versions are also on course to release before the end of the year.
We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Orphan achievements.
