The results from our very first Free-2-Play event with The Orion Project on Steam are now in. We want to thank everyone who participated for playing the game and helping spread the word.

( VERSION 1.4.3 )
We are currently working on Version 1.4.3 which is expected to release very soon. It will feature slightly improved maps, a new third person camera, camera animations, fixed orbital command and more. Full changelog preview coming soon!

( COMMUNITY CHALLENGE #1 )
Unfortunately this was not a success, with only selling around 40,000 copies give or take. We appreciate all who bought multiple copies (you lot are insane and awesome!) and told friends about the event. While you won't be awarded the prizes we still will do a Trek Credit handout to ALL players as a thank you.

( $1 FOR LIFE )
There was a bit of confusion regarding whether or not The Orion Project would be $1 going forward. The answer is yes, absolutely. The F2P event celebrated the last week of Founder Access as well as introduced the new pricing model. The game is still $1 and will remain this except you will NOT be marked as a Founder starting May 3, 2016.

Thanks to all who contacted to report that our website was down. The issue has been resolved and it is nice to know people visit!

Hello Guardians! As some may recall, we had an active prototype in development catering to our FPS roots called ORION: Interlude. This was more of a direct sequel to ORION: Prelude and focused on what made the original great.

We are here today to confirm that it is no longer in active development and instead all of it's associated technology and content is being migrated into Guardians of Orion.

The First-Person Module is expected to arrive in Version 1.5. We are on schedule to release Version 1.5 shortly after the game leaves the Founder Access period on May 1, 2016.

In FPS-related news we still have support coming to our first game, ORION: Prelude witihn 2016. This will include a variety of new maps for both Co-Op and PvP-related game modes. More details on these as we get closer towards Summer.

We don't need $100 million.
We don't need 500 developers.
We don't need multiple studios.

Star Citizen has been affecting many gamers. Most importantly it has begun threatening platforms/models I believe in and that genuine (indie) developers can truly make use of. For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction and I am going to be that reaction right now.
http://www.gamespot.com/articles/star-citizen-creator-wishes-hed-explained-games-de/1100-6434856/

With that much money, that much talent and that much time there sure is very little for their consumers to actually play. With recent developments/comments on their end and seeing how they interact/look at/treat their fans I've felt the need to tackle this straight on.

We can deliver that experience for far less. We will illustrate this via Guardians of Orion. FPS confirmed, Orbital Command confirmed, Orbital FPS PvP confirmed, etc, etc. Oh and this will all be available for $1 starting May 2016.

Star Marine has missed many dates. From what I can recall it now no longer has a date. That is a shame but one that I am going to fix. Our new mode will satiate anyone's hunger for Orbital FPS. The name for this mode is appropriately titled Star Guardian. More details coming as we approach the March/April/May releases.

The fun stuff is coming by Summer 2016.
I am coming for you, Star Citizen.

Love,
David
