NEW COMMUNITY - WELCOME TO UPGRADED MESSAGE BOARDS

We are happy to launch our brand new community.  We have revamped the entire UI and layout as well as the content contained within.  Everything is organized, concise and has a much cleaner design overall.  We've completely decked it out and encourage all and any to come check it out and mingle with us!

We've made the registration process a whole bunch easier, which we are going to take the time to walk you through:

ALREADY A MEMBER?

If you are a previous member to any of our old forums / message boards then you may simply login and interact as usual - all accounts have transfered over successfully. 

NOT A MEMBER?  NO PROBLEM!

A large problem with the past message board was simply being able to register.  It was definitely a tedious process including some of the most difficult image verification that anyone has ever witnessed.  The problem was - we were receiving bot attacks like it was our job to prevent them.  We have fixed this.  Not only is the new image verification human-friendly now - but you also get to activate your own account - no longer must you wait for one of us to authorize it!



EASY REGISTRATION!

Simply fill out the 5 easy forms and type in the (much simpler) Confirmation Code. You will receive an email automaticallyl that allows you to self-activate your account. If you do not receive this email we suggest that you check your 'SPAM' folder as some users have reported it ending up in there. It is only a few steps now.  Simply click below to start registering right away:

GET HOOKED UP!

Come interact with us - and we will hook you up!  All of the developers are regularly interacting with the forums so it is a great meeting ground for fans and developers.  We post a lot of blogs and updates ranging from things such as impressions from conventions like PAX Seattle 2010 and London's EuroGamer 2010 as well as game-related secrets. 

ACCESS TO THE BETA WHEN IT ARRIVES

Our community is going to be a large part in the Beta selection process as we draw closer.  In fact we are going to create actual th reads relating to accepting new testers.  If you want a chance to play ORION: Prelude before anyone else - your best chance is by interacting and following our forums for when that thread arrives.

COMPETITIONS / PRIZES

We are going to be holding competitions regularly ranging from wallpapers of the month, level design competitions, game challenge competitions and a variety of others.

OUR NETWORKS

We are part of a wide variety of networks.  We regularly interact with these so we can obtain feedback and impressions from our fan base.  We encourage all fans to participate in any of these as they all hold unique content.

   

UPCOMING SURPRISE!
We are pretty adament on teasing and toruting you guys - so here we go again.  We have a rather large (/epic) announcement planned for reveal on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 29TH.  

We hope to see you there. We are going to be posting it on our forums before anywhere else so make sure you sign up so you can catch it early.
