Go To

Orphan is a Metroidvania Platform Game by Windy Hill Studio.

The planet Earth has been destroyed by an alien invasion. Even now, extraterrestrial machines roam the planet, killing anything they see.

In the midst of all this, one little boy has survived. He doesn't know if he's the Last of His Kind or not, but he has managed to survive this long.

Now, only two things keep him going. The hope he can find any other human survivors...

and revenge against the alien invaders.

The game was funded on Kickstarter on March 1st, 2015. It was released on October 30th, 2018.


Orphan contains examples of:

  • Adult Fear: The game is about a little kid, all alone in a world full of dangerous beings who would kill him on sight.
  • Featureless Protagonist: The character is basically a black shadow in the shape of a human boy.
  • One-Word Title
  • Ray Gun: The boy finds one that he can use as a weapon against the aliens.
  • Side View: Naturally, as it's a side-scroller.
  • The Ending Changes Everything: The world wasn't actually conquered by the aliens, those are false memories put in your mind by the Big Bad to stop you from foiling the invasion before it can truly begin.


How well does it match the trope?
