DESCRIPTION

Orphan Age is a dystopian life sim game where you play not as the soldiers of war, but as the children left behind. Set against the backdrop of an unforgiving, neon-lit dystopian warzone, your only battle is the fight for survival, scraping out a living in the face of extreme danger as war engulfs the world around you. You will guide a band of orphans, each with their own skills, emotions, strengths, weaknesses and fears, through a dangerous and ever-changing city in a bitter struggle for survival. Constantly balancing risk and reward, you must make the big decisions to ensure the group stays alive. Build up your base, scavenge, craft and venture out into the city for new recruits, whilst ensuring there are enough supplies to keep going, even when it seems all hope might be lost.

LOGOS

ABOUT

The game had a different title at the beginning - The Ascent - in 2009 and the gameplay was different. It was showcased at various events, and publishers were starting to express interest. Unfortunally, the company had to close its doors in 2011.

Adrien founded Studio Black Flag in 2013 with a mind to resurrect the project. In 2014, the idea was rebooted as Orphan Age, this time with more focused gameplay. In 2015, Orphan Age secured some funding thanks to the CNC. Maxime was hired and the pre-production started in earnest during spring 2016.

In 2017, another local government grant from the New-Aquitaine Region allowed the studio to strenghten the production values and increase the scale of the project. We are now in the final stretch! A first beta version was showcased during PAX Paris in April 2018, garnering overwhelmingly positive feedback. A few weeks later, Orphan Age was awared "Best Indie Game" by the jury of the Stunfest festival!

After 9 years trying to make this game happen, Orphan Age will finally leave its prototype state. It has been a hell of a journey, yet it is only the beginning of the adventures!
