We are thrilled to announce that the ORION games will now be headng to a 4th market - the community-driven and fantastic digital distribution service - Desura.


"The aim of Desura is to provide gamers with a dependable interface which delivers the content they want to play in the quickest cross-pc way possible. At its heart is a digital distribution application which can serve (and patch) games, mods and addons to its members."


Desura is driven by the developers - not a single corporation. We get to post the updates, the media, the videos - and it is we who will be interacting with you in that community.

It is run by you guys - you can post comments, submit news, upload your own screenshots of our game. You guys are the backbone to the service and are the ones who give it life.

It also features a ton of User Made Content. It encourages you to add on to games, make mods and change your favorite games - and then share it with all of your friends and the community.


Our free experimental project, the ORION: Source Multiplayer Beta (also known as "The Orion Project") is now available for download. We are thrilled to offer this on Desura as it allows us to interact with the fans of the product in a much more effective manner - as well as allows you, the gamer, to obtain the newest files and have any future updates automatically applied to your game. No more stressful installs!


ORION: Source Multiplayer Beta (ORION Project) is the exciting experimental introduction to a brand new game series. Strap on your jetpacks, activate your cloak devices - and work as a team using some retro inspired game mechanics and fast-paced gameplay.

Does that mean all planned spiralgame studio games? As in, Prelude, and the trilogy?
