As some (hopefully many) of you may have known - we were supposed to reveal and announce something rather epic and huge today. However, we had to delay it (we are not happy either, don't worry) and are looking forward to peeling back the curtains and showing it to you in all of it's glory in roughly 3 weeks time.

We can't really talk details about it but I have included these nice little images since it's all I ever hear about anyways.



Enjoy and forgive!

See you all very soon!

Ah well, I'm sure it'll be worth the wait.

My prediction: You've bought out Micro$oft, all their published games will come to PC and Orion is replacing Halo. I'd stake my left testicle on it, although sadly I already staked that on HL2 EP.3 being announced next year and released 2012.

How do you know that EP3 is gonna be announced next year? Nobody is sure about it, neither Valve, that seems to have left HL to death (lol, l4d + hl ahaha stupid joke) but well, if you say so...

For praz, really nice man, I loved them!

Lets hope EP3 gets announced. It's long over due and it will be exciting to see what Valve can do with the Source Engine - as they are really only the ones that can push it anymore.

Stake your right, man.
Normally you'd have 2... or none.

I'll make an unqualified guess that we'll be seeing a T-rex, riding that sweet piece of as-... wheels.

This post made me want to make a small video of the T-rex driving the Gladiator.

Well as far as I know you CAN get vehicles working on the Orange Box SDK over networked games.. it's just not in a way we would be happy releasing and saying "this was our vision of vehicle combat".

It's rather sloppy on Source and something we can't slap into our product.

We'll be talking details soon!

Zubren **** off. So they both have dinosaurs. SO they both made a ******* T-Rex. Its kinda going to happen that they might look the same. So go troll somewhere else before jumping to conclusions.

Calm down. I'm going to share what I know so far, without jumping to conclusions. I am working on an indie podcast with ashton (Primal Carnage) and one of the developers on orion. Ashton privately shared his work in progress pics of the trex in our skype chat. A few days later, this very similar version is posted on the orion page.

Hey now, no neeed for the big hasty words. There are a lot of confused people - even the lead dev on Primal was somehow confused (and extremely rude).

However, I don't know how this all happened since we've been around for 10 years and have posted various content relating to the dinosaurs previously.

How do you guys plan on integrating vehicles and dinosaurs in such small maps...

We will just have to make all the maps bigger for you guys then, huh?

Yeah, surprisingly he came at me this morning as well. Well not directly - was talking behind my back.

However, no that is not the case. The dinosaurs are COMPLETELY different, and yes both of our games have dinosaurs. However, ours was based more on the V-rex from King Kong (Peter Jackson's flick).

Either way, not cool.

And just so all you crazy folk don't actually believe this nonsense.

Not only have we shown off our design on some boards previously, but we've had the T-rex in our game for now over 10 years.

Here is some additional proof:

Previous T-rex concept (notice teeth)
Orion-project.net

Previous T-rex concept (notice teeth - another angle)
Orion-project.net

Older version of the actual model (notice the older teeth):
Orion-project.net

Older version of the actual model (from the Source Engine):
Orion-project.net

And the mood art that was sent to the concept artist. It was more-so based on the King Kong V-rex than anything.
Orion-project.net

So.... seriously guys? Grow up.
We've only been around 10 years longer than them.

P.S - On a good news note. Orion: Source Multiplayer Beta is now completely free and standalone!

Thanks goes to Valve and Alien Swarm.

Officially changed the picture to a different concept we have of the T-Rex just to keep everyone happy and everyone sane (mostly my self).

All of you should calm the **** down.

So what if theres a trex that looks the same in two games.

T-rex bone structure and physical appearance really didnt alter atall so...

Well theres no point, this arguments like saying THAT PIDGEON FROM HALF LIFE 2 LOOKS LIKE THE ONE FROM GTA 4!

I remain confused.

Not as to the ownership or originality, but to the fuzz about this whole thing.

Chill out or get out.

And now, on an entirely different note:
I refuse to wait 3 weeks and demand an immediate unveiling.
... I'm sure that'll help...

oh, and the previously mentioned T-rex on the Gladiator.
that's part of my demands too.

If my demands are not met, I will possibly starve myself until my next meal.
