ORION: Prelude - GDC Footage

With our humbling and successful KickStarter event - we have also been able to significantly update the game build. We had a brand new game build on-hand with us at GDC and was available for private demonstrations and showings. We are now giving you a glimpse to this new build and cannot wait to hear what you think.


GDC 2011 - SAN FRANSISCO, CA


We just returned a few days ago from the Game Developers Conference 2011 which took place in San Francisco. It was a tremendously rewarding event for not only us as a company - but for ORION as a game series. We had some incredible meetings with some incredible people. They really gave us some great feedback and information that have assisted in some restructuring happening now.

PAX EAST 2011 - BOSTON, MA


We are gearing up for another convention which is literally right around the corner. We leave for Boston this Friday to attend the east coast version of PAX. We will have the GDC game build (slightly updated) on hand with us and would love to show any of you fans that are attending and interested.

If you see us, just say what's up and we'd love to answer any of your questions or simply go get wasted with you at the bars.

Epic game play most terrific and I am guessing the dinos are a neutral unit and just want a snack
Was wondering who came up with the idea of this game. Also me and my team are in the process of creating a new game called horizon and I was wondering if you had any advice you would like to share we are pretty new to this

You can check us out at wolf pack games here on moddb you can find alink in my profiles blog

The Rex animation just seems... off somewhat.

Also he doesn't seem very threatening now, does he? I mean, you have a jet pack and guns and from what the video has shown it seems that it is very easy to dodge him; your bigger threats are from the other team.

Still looks nice though.

This is a pre-alpha game build built in only 10 weeks.

The Rex animations are in-fact place holder (as are the character animations).

There will be 6 main systems that power the dinosaurs along with independent variables that we can attach on top.

There is currently only 1 system in place, which is the 'World' system. This system allows the dinosaur (T-Rex in this case) to understand his environments, know where he can and cannot go, as well as familiar that other players are on the map. The world system is roughly 70% finished in this video.

Once the other systems are added you will see the true capabilities of each dinosaur.

Hope that helped clear a few things up ;)
