We are putting together one last Developer Playdate - an open community event where everyone can come play some games of the ORION: Source Multiplayer Beta. This will be one of the last chances to play the game, as we announced a cease development back in July.

Things are about to get pretty crazy for us. We will be bunkering down under ground for the next few months preparing a plethora of content to get ready for the early months of 2011.
As you all know, we announced a cease development on the ORION: Source Multiplayer Beta which went into effect on July 1st, 2010. We had to shift our focus towards the new title in development which would encompass all of the great features that we wanted to add (dinosaurs, vehicles) and had the ultimatum of choosing between the two.
So we were thinking... how about one last hoorah?
