Release Summary: Robox Studios takes part in Adult Swim's search
for independent games, releasing the action/adventure title Orphan
Release Body: Robox Studios, a games and animation
company based in New York, had the opportunity to develop a unique
property for Adult Swim, as part of the company's
initiative to develop independent online games.
Pietrandrea, the co-owner and creative director, developed
the concept in-house with his partner and pitched it to Adult
Swim. The resulting game, "Orphan Feast,"
combines the world of Victorian London with touches of Oliver Twist,
A Modest Proposal, and Jack the Ripper.
knew we had something twisted on our hands," says Pietrandrea.
"And that it would be a perfect fit for Adult Swim."
The player controls a vicious and ragged hired-hand whose job it
is to collect orphans on the streets of London, rounding them up
to be made into pies to feed the aristocracy.
try to develop concepts with a more cinematic approach, making something
that implies a back story. It adds depth to the property and, I
think, enhances the gameplay experience. We love the idea of creating
small worlds for our characters and games to occupy and Orphan
Feast was the perfect opportunity for that."
Studios is a start-up in a crowded field, but they're confident
in their approach, says Pietrandrea. "We're
a new company, but we're focused on our specific goals and our simple
philosophy: if it pleases us, it will please the client. That's
our golden rule, I'd say. If we're proud of it, we have no doubt
the client will be too."
Studios is currently developing projects for The
History Channel and the ASPCA as well
as dedicating time to in-house game development.
