It's been five years since we first began development on what inevitably became ORION: Prelude. It's been a long journey with many ups and downs but ultimately we couldn't be more proud of this game.

We're approaching 3 million copies sold of ORION: Prelude and now we simply want every gamer out there to experience the Orion series and see what we have to offer. This is an extremely enjoyable game with absolutely zero Pay-2-Win or PayWall mechanics. It has something for everyone and it's even better with friends.

Game on!

Got about lots of copies to gift to friends because I was enjoying the game, but then the lack of proper polishing prevented me from gifting those copies that used to cost like 10 dollars each, because I didn't want to look like an idiot who would gift copies of poorly done games. My friends didn't diserve that.
Now it's gone f2p and I'm stuck with those copies for eternity in my inventory as shame badges.
