Let's Have A Chat



There has been some confusion regarding what we're up to and I wanted to clear a few things up for everyone.

A little while ago we cancelled all other titles/developments at Trek Industries once we internally committed to approaching The Orion Project again. While most of these titles and games were never publicly announced or mentioned, some were.

These cancellations included games like:
1. ORION: Interlude (sequel to Prelude)
2. ORION: Interlude (Episodic Campaign)
3. ORION: Retro (action/platformer)
4. ORION: Fueled (Adrenaline Racing)
5. ORION 1 (Campaign, Trilogy)
6. ORION 2 (Campaign, Trilogy)
7. ORION 3 (Campaign, Trilogy)
8. OrionVR


( WHY WE CANCELLED THEM )
We decided to cancel these titles not because we're not going to be delivering these experiences, but because we want to deliver them in a new and unique way - a way that doesn't split or segregate the community by forcing an annual or bi-annual re-purchase of a new game or sequel. This also benefits us on the development side of things allowing us to focus on what we create instead of going backwards and re-creating/re-modulating systems and modules every year.


( WHAT WE ARE DOING INSTEAD )
Instead we're going to use all those designs and technology and integrate it into one giant and connected experience via The Orion Project. These are games within games, but are being called Modules because of their inner-connected relationships/parallel activity alongside other modules at the same time.


( ORION: PRELUDE 2 = FPS MODULE 1.0/2.0 )
So you'll be getting that sequel to Prelude, which is incredible FPS and Third-Person gameplay with the ability to purchase Weapons/Vehicles (coming after 1.5) and tackling side objectives and bonus missions. It won't just be a new camera angle and weapons as we've also evolved the overall gameplay that occurs during these modules and perspectives and will be taking it a step further.


( THE EVOLUTION )
You can see these in changes like the mobility of the power source (Harvester) compared to the Power Gen (Prelude), the ability to buy weapons/vehicles anywhere rather than running all the way to a shop, the confirmation of weapon attachments, the deeper player customization and so much more.

So if you're a fan coming from ORION: Prelude you will find the experience of the sequel within The Orion Project courtesy of the FPS Module 1.0 and 2.0, otherwise previously known as and using content/assets/designs from ORION Interlude (aka ORION: Prelude 2).


( ENTIRE GAMES WORTH OF CONTENT )
You're getting an entire FPS games worth of content courtesy of this integration. We will be doing the same thing with the Mechs and we will be doing a full games worth instead of a Mech-spin off game.

So instead of just one Mech vehicle with a preset weapon loadout in the game like Prelude, we will have multiple classes of Mechs with an on-going and growing list of unit types within those classes. In addition we are developing an entire arsenal of weapons exclusively for the Mechs and the content of the Mech module will be comparable to a game like Titan Fall 1.

The same goes for the Racing module(s), the Campaign, and so on and so forth.

- - -

We are tackling each project one at a time to not get overwhelmed and I believe we are making incredible progress and a year from now people will very much enjoy what we are all building together.

ORION: Prelude 2 - Coming June 2016



( PRELUDE FANS REJOICE! )
We are going to work our butts off in order to deliver you all (and us) one hell of a game! The direct sequel to our first indie mega hit, ORION: Prelude is coming June 2016 courtesy of The Orion Project!
https://youtu.be/v6Nddfw2NnQ

( THE ORION PROJECT )
The ultimate Space Adventure and Combat Video Game for PC. The Orion Project is a living, breathing and Persistent Universe allowing for you to travel the Galaxy and experience Open World Gameplay like never before!

( NO PAY WALLS - EVER)
There will never be a pay wall between any two friends. Even for specific/exclusive content like the 2017 Campaign, if one friend owns it he or she can invite any non-owning friends to participate, for example.

( MANY GAMES IN ONE )
The Orion Project is one of the largest video game projects ever undertaken. It will ultimately be a culmination of many games pieced together as one giant one.

I want to make Racing games, Fighting games, Social games, Sims, Building Games and more. But instead of making 20 or so titles over the course of 5-10 years and charging you anywhere from $10-$60 for the, I'd rather focus all those experiences into "The Orion Project" in interesting and creative ways.

( ORION PRELUDE 2 / ORION: INTERLUDE )
Many people ask what happened to these games and if they still exist. This title of course still exists and is coming to The Orion Project under the name of "FPS Module".

( PAY OR PLAY )
If we sell anything inside of The Orion Project for a real-world currency it is our objective to also make it obtainable via Store Credits all the same.

( EARNING CREDITS )
There are already a variety of ways to earn Store Credits in the game, including: Daily + Weekly Quests, Trek Achievements as well as an upcoming ION-to-CREDIT conversion system.

( THE CAMPAIGN )
"ORION 1" is coming courtesy of the newly announced Campaign Module starting in 2017. Get ready for some epic cooperative/single-player missions and story!

The Orion Project is only $1 on Steam

Best 52 cents I ever spent on game. Totally worth it!

I bought this game becasue it was cheap and could count towards game collection as well as 6 free trading cards (so you kinda get your money back...). I never thought about actually playing it.

Then a few months later, I decided to play it just to get a few achievements so it would not always show 0/251 in the library.

Now I have spent 12.5 actual game time (not counting the card time), got eaten, stoned by trex (even I was in VTOL, Iol), suisided by rocket luncher, knew that if you got stuck, press 5 to teleport...

Achievements in this game do not matter any more (just kidding), this game is addictive!!!

Where can you go wrong with this game? It's very cheap and super fun. Honestly, I'd buy this game for $10 or even $20. I highly suggest trying it out or even getting the 4-pack so you can play with your friends. How disappointed can you get when it was only a dollar?

10/10 would watch friend be eaten again.

"Ha it's only a dollar It'll be a piece of garbage but whatevs"

*plays for 20 minutes*

I have now found the ultimate reason to go on in life. I shall forever be a knight in the holy crusade against the blasphemous dinosaurs. I hereby devote my very existence to driving a tank and shooting velociraptors on the ground and failing at taking pterodactyls out of the sky. ORION: Prelude is the pinnacle achievement of humanity.

11/10 would get stomped on by a T Rex again

Cheap fun, if you are complaining that this game isnt fun enough or something, you're an idiot. Its 1$. If you play it for 30 minutes you got your 1$ worth out of it. Regret not buying the 4 pack. Pretty fun game with friends. Jetpack dinosaur killing is quite entertaining. 7.5/10

Alot of fun for an odler game. Fun with friends and the ever so not safe for work chat and in game voip. Its a great 11 round shooter that has a similar set up and play style to borderlands but its a survival game with vehicles youd see in Halo or mechwarrior. If you ever played Sanctum/orcs must die etc youll like the game. It reminds me of alot different game mechanics from other games. Online is solid, lots of bots to help you :3

My only issue that is the interface to buying weapon and augments are not the same and some what complicated/confusing, augments you double click and weapons you have to click the green purchase.

When compared the the like of Halo and Hatoful Boyfriend, you cant go wrong with this game. But if you compare this game against Airport Simulator 2014 and Gasp, Its still really good!

This game is best for young children. It shows them the importance of staying away from dinosaurs just like in real life. Dinosaurs and guns make a great combination to help their young minds.

Have some self respect and wear a diaper when playing this masterpiece. Taking breaks is a sin.

This game reminds me of the older Halo multiplayer. This game is without a doubt worth $.49. I mean its not perfect. It has bugs and glitches but its only $.49 so you really cant complain. If I had to decribe this game, It would be Halo 2 +Dinosuars += Awesomeness
