We recently sat down with Hooked Gamers to answer some questions and let them in on some information regarding the ORION game series. The interview just went live today – make sure to check it out!


Hooked Gamers:
Thanks for taking the time to answer a few questions today David. To get this started, how about you tell us what ORION: Prelude is all about and what genre it falls under.

David Prassel:

ORION: Prelude is a fast-paced, retro-inspired First-Person Shooter. It encompasses feature sets that no hard core gamer could resist, including: interactive dinosaurs, multiple levels of vehicular combat, cooperative modes and competitive gameplay.

Hooked Gamers:

How exactly did this idea come about?

David Prassel:

Back in the late 90's, I was a HUGE gamer. The PC market ignited with titles such as Quake 2 CTF, Starsiege: Tribes, early renditions of Counter-Strike, StarCraft, the first Unreal Tournament - it was an incredible time for the gaming industry. I also was part of the "grouped" gaming phenomenon, or "clans" which really complimented team work elements and strategy. All of this factored in to when I sat down and started designing the ORION game series - and it will be extremely apparent.
