Yesterday we came back with the much-missed 'Play With Devs' game matches between us, Spiral Game Studios, and you - the fans and gamers of the world. We played quite a few rounds of our early modding endeavor, the ORION: Source Multiplayer Beta (www.orion-project.net).

We had a great turn up and a great reaction towards it from the attendees - which you can check out in the Spiral Community over here:



The 'ORION: Source Multiplayer Beta' is a free*-to-play add-on to Valve Software's Source Engine. It was an extremely early endeavor of ours in order to lay out a foundation for a new game series, release an early product, for free, to the public, and obtain feedback and apply changes to better cement the mechanics in the game. It also demonstrated an early look at to our post-product support. With the Source Beta we added over 300 game fixes and tons of new maps. This was only the beginning and we are going to be going all out in this regard.

All of the information gathered here was to be used (and is being used) for future titles - which you now know as ORION: Prelude.

Did you guys not announce this one on ModDB, or did I just miss it? I really enjoyed the last "Play With the Devs" and I'm sad I didn't get to do it this time! I guess I'll pay attention more for the next one!
