Mac OSX and Ubuntu now supported!

The 2D sci-fi indie platformer Orphan has now added support for Mac OSX and Ubuntu.

Orphan features a young boy who finds he is the sole remaining survivor of an alien apocalypse. The silhouette-styled graphics draw comparisons to Limbo, but Orphan is a metroidvania featuring plenty of weapon-play and giant boss battles.

Orphan was developed by the one-man studio Windy Hill in Tennessee and published by 2Dimensions, developers of animation software including Nima and Flare.

Mac users will need OSX 10.9 or higher.

Ubuntu users will need 18.04 or higher.

Patch Notes 1.0.2.0

Huge update. Converted the game from GMS1 to GMS2. Lots of changes/fixes. Please let me know if I've missed any previously reported bug. I skimmed the forums and I feel this takes care of everything I'm aware of. As well, I believe the random crashes do not exist in this version. If I missed something, report it here and I can now patch things very quickly that this GMS2 conversion is done.

Changes
  • Game engine updated to GM Studio 2. This gave a performance increase and solved some issues, but caused alot of underlying code to be reworked. Please report any bugs!
  • Removed settings for Vertex Buffer Method and Windows Alternate Vertical Sync Method
  • Simplified settings for Framerate (Auto/30/60) Anti-Aliasing (On/Off), Shadowcasting and Crepuscular Rays (Off/Low/High)
  • Added setting for Sleep Margin in Graphics Options. This should be left alone in most cases.

    Bug Fixes
  • Fixed bug that could cause you to have unlimited throwable items
  • Can no longer attack when prone
  • Completely rewrote functions for the Tent and Canteen. Both should work more predictably now.
  • Fixed bug that could cause incorrect graphics to be drawn on hotkey screen.
  • Fixed bug that could cause health to increase over the maximum.
  • Fixed bug allowing multiple cutscene skips on final battle
  • Fixed bug allowing player to take damage when using the Defender to reflect a laser and turning around.
  • Many small graphical/audio or gameplay changes too numerous to include.
