Our Darker Purpose, a crowdfunded indie horror game set in an orphanage, arrives on PC before the end of the week.

Developer Avidly Wild Games told Polygon the top-down adventure should hit Steam on January 29, with a Humble Store launch “same day or shortly thereafter”.

Our Darker Purpose follows the story of Cody, a young girl in an orphanage where all the adults have mysteriously vanished. Some of her fellow orphans become her opponents in this blend of RPG and roguelike gameplay.
