'Trekking' - Show Announcement

We are David & Francesca - and we are just two of the faces at Trek Industries. Trek Industries is an independent software / media developer and a philanthropologist corporation.

( Video Tour )
Here is the very first look at the Trek Bus in which we Live, Work and Travel the World from full-time. It runs fully on Solar Power & Bio Diesel to help promote cleaner and smarter working conditions - not to mention much better office views!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifrd28fNeGQ


( Show - Behind The Scenes + Travel + Interactive Media )
Over the course of this next decade we will be developing a set of next generation Orion games across the globe courtesy of amazing developers and incredible partners. We will be documenting this entire experience, showcasing behind the scenes footage and what it is like for an independent game studio to create a game from beginning to digital store shelves. This will of course include us but also the other developers who participate in the creation of Orion from all around the world. Locations include: United States (All), Canada, Australia and the UK.


( Keeping It Local )
Along the way we fully intend to embrace small and local businesses. We will be scouting out “mom and pop” type shops to eat and shop at instead of big businesses. Investing our time and money into these special places and helping to grow their community. We want to live life like a local wherever it is that we are traveling to, getting a real vibe for each destination while supporting their individual city and town.


( First Great Departure )
We are preparing to make our first great departure! Across this experience we will be showing off every inch of North America and Canada - including Alaska and the Yukon, which are some of the very places that have motivated and inspired the vistas of Orion.

Let us know what you think below and what else you’d like to see. Stay tuned for our next upload!

(Dev Update) - Talking v3.0/Q2 2015

Hey everyone,

I've been trying to get to typing this ever since we released v2.0 but life's been crazy. More on that later!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fngV5d5OWWs


( The HUD )
First up, the controversial HUD change! Before this we had intentions of possibly even adding to / growing the HUD. But when looking across the upcoming titles and seeing the how the changes they had incorporated in the UI design would affect ORION: Prelude, it was beneficial and added the immersion/survival factor.

Because of this we implemented it into Prelude and re-organized any seriously crucial information to appropriate places, such as the Energy Bar, Game Information being in the Multiplayer Information screen and Credits being visible in the same area or where they are used - in-game shops.


( The Reality )
After release we quickly realized this upset some of you who have grown accustomed towards certain parts of the HUD. In response I stated we would be able to release a quick hot fix that allows users to manually add them back but it appears I spoke too soon. The HUD was rewritten using the new philosophy from scratch to aid in performance. Given that is the route we went it'd require additional rewriting rather than a "toggle back on/off".

Because of this it won't be fixed as fast as originally intended on my behalf, however it will be a part of v3.0 which will also include the Remastered Weapon Audio and a few weapon buffs.

( Version 3.0 - Q2 2015 )
Also please feel free to suggest additional changes/bug fixes/tweaks that you'd like to see in Version 3.0 as we begin to compile the Master List.


Until then please enjoy the new experience, as it *will* remain the default (have to manually add the other areas) and I truly think you may end up enjoying it when it stops being the "new kid on the block".

UPDATE : ORION PRELUDE

There simply aren't enough games with dinosaurs & even fewer of these that are actually worth playing! For me, Orion: Prelude (O:P) is that rare exception. Although not much in way of a story in the game (no single player after all), there is quite a tale on how Orion came to be the game it is today...

The short version is, that O:P is an evolution of previous Orion titles, Dino Horde & Dino Beatdown originally dating back to a successful 2011 Kickstarter campaign. Although recieving early criticism (that would normally kill a game ..dead.. disappearing into obscurity), the game continued to evolve with constant updates (big & small) over the years from the developers. Spiral stuck with it! This dedication & gradual refinement of the game has resulted in an excellent first-person co-op experience, with a well rounded collection of modes, weapons, enviromental effects, vehicles & more to enjoy.

PvP isn't forgotten; it's also selectable. PvP feels more alike to a retro deathmatches, than a modern PvP (in a good way!), but I mainly enjoy the co-op modes. In co-op, you essentially have to defend your power core against waves of bloodthursty dinosaurs. Dinosaur kills will reward you credits, which you can use to buy perks & weapon upgrades, in-turn helping you survive the later, harder waves. Some waves also have you securing objectives. Co-op doesn't feel ultra competitive, most of the time you don't watch your credits/kills, rather finding yourself just having fun surviving & helping your teammates! I've found the community to generally be helpful & friendly in-game too.

One of the real stand-out features in O:P has to be the enviromental effects randomly cycling on the alien world. From the day/night cycles to the extreme variety of climates & types of weather. Adds so much to the atmosphere. Couple this with excellent lighting effects through what seems to be a thicker atmosphere and the results can sometimes be spectacular! Even overwhelming! You definitely get that feeling when your final wave gets a night cycle with heavy rain .. you know you are gonna see an epic close quarter battle!

Along with the awesome effects, there are 3 distinct classes to mix-up the gameplay. Each has unique strengths & each you can progress/level-up in online play to unlock starting weapons, power-ups & perks. Initial learning curve isn't steep, so once you get the hang of the basic flow it becomes very easy to sink multiple hours killing dinos! O:P rarely feels like a grind; even at lower levels (without a lot of perks) you competently kill dinos & gain good XP. Plenty of dinos to go around too :)

If you can't find a friend to play with, there is also bot-support added in O:P to fill the ranks. This can be helpful to get playing quickly if server populations are low (which regrettably does happen).

The trilogy of classes are well balanced (no need for any other classes), as is the gameplay in general. Difficulty is super scalable. Weapons are mainly shared between classes so quickly become familiar, and vehicles are easy to use & offer a good range of practical & destructive uses. Repetitive? Sure, to a degree, it is the same thing over & over and despite there being a lot of 'accessories' to the spice up the character classes & tactics, modes etc, there are not a huge number of maps for each mode. I expect this will change soon with Steam Workshop support being added.

The A.I. generally employed by the dinosaurs is a fairly basic 'rush' tactic, which can feel pretty predictable (there are a few surprises though), but I find the larger dino numbers to counteract this limitation to a degree anyway. There are also the occasional technical glitches like querky physics (flying Stegosaurus anyone?) or clipping inside a dinosaur. Nothing game-breaking that I have experienced, but sure does make for some funny moments! Just like my many failed attempts at some of the more creative 'Ride a Dino for 10secs' & 'Slap T-Rex 100 times' achievements :)

O:P reminds me a bit of those classic, simple shooters like a Serious Sam or Left 4 Dead, but with a bit of high-tech sci-fi flavor. This future-tech feel across the game contradicts the jurassic era dinosaurs & remote wilderness landscapes nicely! O:P is not as complex mechanically or technically when compared to a top end AAA FPS, but its simplicity is also its underlying strength. It is great value ($1!), has strong replayability and the focused, balanced gameplay (some bonus ..ahem.. querks) offers a truely fun & intense, dino killin' co-operative survival experience!


Too much to read?

Yeah ok then (fair call lol)..

I'll let Dave Chappelle quickly summarise what O:P is really all about:

i mean... i dunno it's alright, it's kind of god awful in a hilarious broken buggy kind of way. But it's a dollar for a few hours of super cheap fun. You have to pay more for a can of coke than this game, and though coke is tasty and refreshing, this game costs less money and therefore is better than coke.

This game started as disaster with a good idea. With the newest Update a lot has changed and it needs a review from all the bad voters.... it tooks a while but the devs made the effort to finish their product (not like many other bigger studios out there) Worth gaming. Worth buying.

If this game was priced at $30+ I would say avoid it like the plague.

If this game was priced at $20 I would say don't bother waiting for a sale.

If this game was priced at $10 I would say just buy anything else.

If this game was priced at $5 I would say you could buy lunch instead.

If this game was priced at $1 I would say you have no reason not to own this.

So what I'm saying is you have no reason not to own this. If you even get one hour of entertainment out of it from soley looking at some nice graphics and laughing at some bugs and glitches that was a dollar well spent. It beats the hell out of paying $70 for a AAA-title for the same effect. The devs know this is not the greatest game ever made, but they have made leaps and bounds in progress from the days when this was considered "one of the worst games on Steam." And for precisely this reason they have dropped the price so much. They want to redeem themselves. They want people to play their game and give it a chance. What are you waiting for, you heartless ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥? It's only a dollar. Play their game.

Do you like first-person shooters? Do you like giant mecha? DO YOU LIKE DINOSAURS? Then Orion: Prelude may just be for you.
I’m in two minds about this multiplayer shooter from the ORION: Prelude team that somehow isn’t ORION: Prelude. Is ORION: Dino Beatdown a brilliant name for a game, or is it a horrible name for anything? One thing I do know, despite the laudable presence of dinosaurs and jetpacks, I’d be a lot happier if the dinosaurs were actually using the jetpacks :D

Everything in Orion is a little…bland. That isn’t to say that the game is rendered poorly, but it all just looks generic. Most of the dinosaurs and vehicles look good, for what they are worth, but some of the guns have not received as gracious a treatment. For example, the shotgun looks more like a rifle and has a really ugly ammo counter on it that just looks tacky.
The dinosaur models look just fine, but that isn’t the problem with them. They are often poorly animated. For velociraptors and “compies” the jump attack just looks silly and the bite animation is more a head twitch than a vicious attack.
The vehicles are frustrating to drive yet are grossly overpowered. Most dinosaurs, baring the large ones, you encounter can simply be killed by running them over. The rest will immediately destroy you vehicle for some unspecified reason.

The basic survival mode gets you through 15 waves of defending a generator and buying guns, but lacks any form of climax on the last wave. An evolution of this mode is Conquest , where you defend three bases consecutively and additionally, you can buy vehicles. It is basically three times Survival, but the game gets a lot more interesting with limited funds available – money sharing gets very important here.
The game feature actually 14 game modes.

Only in some modes you actually get to play as all the dinosaurs you normally fight. This part is actually pretty cool. You play as the dinosaurs in third person. Some of the gems in this mode are playing as a t-rex, raptor, and spinosaur. You can even be a deinosuchus (40ft long crocodile), which is pretty rad. But hey, how many games can you actually play as a dinosaur?

I am being pretty hard on this game, but despite all the flack I am giving it I still LIKE IT for some reason. It is just fun to play in its own quirky way. At the same time, I feel like the studio behind it might actually be able to polish it to a degree that it becomes a decent title. This is the 3 update now? Every update, the game is much better and the price drop down. 0,99$ is it today and at the halloween special the developers give the community 1000 FREE copies of the game. thats awesome :)
Overall, i almost feel like it is one of those games that is so bad it becomes good. 75% of the steam reviews are good, try it out and dont hear at the meta critics!


Sorry for my bad english. This is my review account, because the low playtime.
Thanks for reading! If you Like my Review, give me a Thumbs up in Steam.
Your help is greatly appreciated :)

Ah yes, Orion: Prelude, or as it will always be known to me, Orion: Dino Horde! This game has been quite criticized through the years (and in all honestly quite rightly so). they game if filled with bugs and lots of tedious grinding achievements. Still, despite all that I can't help but to love it. In fact it is the only game which I haven't uninstalled after reaching 100%.

So, there's no story to follow in this game and it's a pretty straightforward king of game. You're dropped as one of three classes (assault, recon and support) into a base where you're supposed to defend a generator against incoming waves of attacking dinos that don't enjoy your presence there. If all teammates dies or the generator is destroyed (a timer starts when it reaches 0% health and if it isn't repaired before time runs out it's destroyed) you all loose. If you survive all waves (10 for normal games and 30 for conquest games) then you win. Pretty simple. To your help you can buy a quite big assortment of weapons and perks and each class comes with a specific perk of their own (assault can jetpack, recon can cloak and support can heal).

This game has a lot of various pvps but there are only a couple which I really enjoy such as king of the hill and team elimination. The place where this game really shines is in regular Survival mode when you play together with a good, tight and cooperative team. This is where this game is at it's best! I don't think I've made as many friends in any game as I've made in this one.

So, in conclusion, if you want a good cooperative game and don't mind a few bugs here and there and can either ignore, or work through all the grinding achievements then yes, you will enjoy this game!

Over the years this game has been bashed as one of the worst games to be released on steam, however now I'd say get it.

For £0.79 game the graphics look like they are from a game costing £30, and the weather effects you get on your helmet is a nice addtion too, the main enemys in this game are dinosaurs and there are 7 of them and 2 flying reptiles and a giant Crocodile, all 10 of them feel unquie and fun to fight against.

You can get vechicles in this game, theres the average jeep with turret, a jet and a tank, but best of all theres a MECH! YES A MECH YOU CAN FIGHT A TREX WITH A MECH! All of the vechicles are great to drive and are really helpful overall.

Game breaking glitches like map glitches or crashes are very rare in this game, the only one I can think of is where you can leave a map by playing as a flying reptile or playing Assault with the jetpack and fly above the boundires, luckly this is only on one map and it's unplayed often.

However this game does have a few downsides....

1. A lot of weapon clipping, sound glitches and firing glitches, most noticeable with the default pistol, duo pistols and using reload speed upgrade.
2. Ragdolls are really glitchy at times, however more tame then any from the Source engine.
3. Playing as Dinosaurs is nearly impossible with the terrible camara angle and controls.
4. Soundtrack is really stock.
5. Small, but very friendly commuinty

Overall the game is much more better then it orignally was, a fun CO-OP horde game to play with your friends!

Yes, buy this game. Its Killing floor + Halo + Turok.
It has its flaws, but the devs seem devoted and are present on the steam forums. If you played this game in beta and not again(like me) give it another shot, it is now playable(LoL) and quite awesome. The difference is uncanny. I reinstalled it yesterday and I'm already level 11. It never felt like grinding.
Buy a four pack, get some friends who will play installed and have a blast together.

For me the biggest con is the limited players. That easy to solve though, buy and play this WAY under priced game.

I enjoyed it since the dino horde update. It's like a mixture of killing floor, halo and dinosaurs, sounds silly but it's a really fun game to play with your friends. Good graphics, no story mode(single player), 5 different difficulties, pvp and co-op mods, three classes and many equipments to choose from, vehicles, simple serverlists, simple level system that rewards you boosts, ''starting weapons'' and more. This game is worth more than the price says, grab it and share with your friends! :)

A bare mininum shooter game with surprisingly good varity of weaponry.
Expect glitches and bugs because it's not a triple A game.
