CHICAGO, IL — Nov. 03, 2010 — We are creeping back from our deep, dark developer holes to announce an exciting new business partnership. Today marks the official announcement of Spiral Game Studios, Inc being accepted into Microsoft’s BizSpark program.

About Microsoft BizSpark

“Launched in November 2008, the BizSpark program is designed to help accelerate the success of entrepreneurs and early-stage startups globally. The program provides fast and easy access to current, full-featured software development tools and platforms, and a connection to over 2,000 BizSpark Network Partners – including university incubators, hosters, government agencies, investors, consultants and financial institutions – all with a common goal of supporting entrepreneurship. “

We are excited to incorporate the new toolsets, software and other applications that we are now able to utilize from this partnership. With state of the art technology, software and now a great new outreach for investors and future collaborators – world domination doesn’t seem too far off!

I should probably clear this up a bit. This is simply a partnership in the sense that they are aiding us with lining up additional investors, global relations around the world, as well as providing us (the company) with free tools and software.

No ownership, not a publishing deal - don't worry about that - I'll be holding on to The ORION game series VERY tightly ;)

Careful, Microsoft is notorious for stealing developers' souls. They have been proven as a monopoly before.

Make sure Orion is COMPLETELY and TOTALLY your intellectual property, and that you have filed for the copyright without Microsoft "help"
