CHILD OF LOTHIAN

Child of Lothian is an adventure-stealth game, where you play as Katheryn, a recently orphaned girl, who is accused of witchcraft. Witch hunters are lurking in the streets, searching for the red-haired girl. Learn how to use your sling and open up new possibilities, in order to survive in the streets of Edinburgh. 

ABOUT US

Child of Lothian is a game created over the course of 28 weeks by students at Breda University of Applied Sciences. Team Exploding Apples consists of 1 producer, 5 programmers, 13 designers and 9 artists. The project brief was determined in advance by the university lecturers. Throughout all stages of game development they have guided us towards reaching our goals. Additionally, we have received a lot of community feedback, which allowed us to elevate the quality of the game.

KATHERYN

Play as Katheryn, a recently orphaned girl, who is accused of witch craft. Learn how to sneak around and use the sling in order to survive the streets of Edinburgh. 

Find pebbles and use your sling to create distractions or destroy objects. Evade the witch hunters by sneaking through the streets of Edinburgh and using the environment to your advantage. Sharing is caring, any valuables people carry on them are not safe from your pickpocketing. Scramble around the city to find loot or to get a better vantage point.

EDINBURGH

Explore the winding, damp streets of the old town on your journey to survive the witch hunts. The town is full of secrets and characters to meet and interact with. Every problem has its own set of solutions and completing errands for the town-folk leads to different outcomes. Make your own choices and live to see the consequences.

THE WITCH HUNTER

In an era of widespread fanaticism, witch hunters are roaming the city, searching everywhere for witches. These relentless zealots have accused, judged and executed your family. The witch hunters are onto you and will stop at nothing to hunt you down.

A menacing force with an iron grip on the city.  Witch hunters will use evidence you leave behind to find you and chase you throughout the world. Don’t get caught!
