1/10/17 - Price Cut! Trading Cards! Mid-Mission Saving Beta!

Well, hello there space fans. Dave here with an update for y’all.

First off, we’ve (finally) added Steam Trading Cards! You can now collect all six cards, featuring Warp Weasels and the famed captain Ego Blondsmann. Also Tad.

Collect them all, and you’ll earn backgrounds that feature gorgeous Away Mission art, and some nifty little emoticons to use your chatting heart’s desire.

Next up, we’ve reduced the base price of Orion Trail to $7.99! Sweet space savings!

Finally, we’ve also updated the game to Unity 5.4 to make it easier to support the game in the future. In addition to the engine upgrade, we’ve staged a new update that fixes a lot of bugs and grammar bads.

This update also adds a pretty neat (and long time coming) feature: mid-mission saving! Halfway through the Long Haul and need to take a break? Quit and save! Warp Weasels warped into your fridge? Save and quit! Unexpected software update restart your machine? Your game is probably saved! The future has truly arrived.

We still need to spend some more time QAing both the content fixes and the mid-mission saving (which has a host of weird edge cases), but we’re confident enough that we wanted to release a public beta of it. To opt in to the beta, do the following:

  1. Find Orion Trail in your Steam Library.
  2. Right click and select “Properties.”
  3. Navigate to the “BETAS” tab.
  4. Enter the following password: oriontrailblazer
  5. Click “Check Code.”
  6. You now have access to the Beta Branch! You might need to restart Steam to make sure the game updates.
Keep on space trippin’, folks.

About This Game


Dare to travel the absurd and dangerous Orion Trail, where only the luckiest, bravest, and most stubborn captains will make it all the way to the end. Come face the terrible and weird Synapsion Brain Beast. Cower before the pedantic might of Baxxtor the Instructor. Submit to the overwhelming cuteness of the three eyed Warp Weasel. Become famously incredible or incredibly dead!

Ultra Cool Space Features

  • A high-stakes and hilarious journey through the strange, stupid and terrifying locales of the Orion Trail!
  • Choose your crew, name them after your friends, and watch them die! Heroically! Or, you know, maybe they’ll survive. Anything can happen!
  • Tons of random encounters, each with a variety of options and outcomes. You’ll probably never encounter the same thing twice! You might, though.
  • Away Missions! Send an Officer (with a few of your invaluably expendable Redshirts) into the fray. The rewards are great, but so is the risk…
  • Carefully manage your Resources: Food, Fuel, Hull, and Redshirts. Curse loudly as they’re whittled away.
  • Play to your strengths! Each captain, and officer provide different bonuses to increase your chances of success.
  • Succumb to the chaos of the Probability Drive. You can rely on your Crew’s abilities, but there are no certainties in space.
  • Chiptune soundtrack by Rainbow Kitten.
  • Gorgeous retro pixel art.
