Discussing The Future Of Guardians



We are a small indie developer and as such we develop and self-publish our own games. The products only have the operational budgets that fans submit via support. There are many things we'd love to add or do that is not up to us.

Guardians of Orion was officially released March 2017. Both Orion games are marked as complete and any future content is purely based on the support that the product receives. The more support we receive the more we can give.

We've held three crowdfunding campaigns (1=pre-production in 2014, 2=production in 2015, 3=post-production in 2016) and all three were not supported. We've held a infrastructure crowdfunding model via Patreon and this also was not supported. We've held a variety of Steam Events, Competitions, Promotions and Sales to generate awareness and support. These have not delivered.

Despite the lack of backing we've self-financed the product regardless. This included the Early Access release in Dec 2015 (top-down only) and all subsequent content updates that lasted all through 2017 and then into 2017 which delivered the official release. This included many things, but notably crafting, inventory, loot, gear, progress, spaceships combat, third person modes, first person modes and many more Guardians.

All future content is based on support received, just like Prelude before it. The more support we get, the more we can deliver. Because of this Prelude is on Year 4 or 5 of free post-release support.

Otherwise we're gearing up towards new productions and we've made the required changes to avoid any developer-related relapses going forward and are very excited about our next production.

If you like the game, share it and spread it. We actively play and showcase the game nearly on a daily basis and provide many opportunities for new gamers to experience the game through pricing models and giveaway events. Regardless, both Orion games only require 2 people for an intended experience (and up to 4 or 5 for a FULL game) so it should always be relatively easy to create games for any of you out there ;)







And don't forget, nearly every edition of ORION (Prelude & Guardians) is celebrating a Steam Sale so now is a great time to own it or upgrade.
