Hello Guardians!

It is no surprise that we constantly want to grow and evolve our games. Guardians of Orion is no different! We have so many ideas for content and modules and so do our fans. We want to make as many of them as possible and the developers on Guardians of Orion have been willing to commit years of their life to fulfilling this experience!

( 2016 CROWDFUNDING )
We are halfway through the duration of our Kickstarter campaign and it's the time where we evaluate the current standing of models we are using. We've been here before (2014, 2015) and we suspect and must operate under the understanding that this 2016 crowdfunding event will follow the same trajectory.

*Note: If the Kickstarter is unsuccessful your donations won't be collected. We encourage any and all supporters to focus onto our Patreon:

*Note: If the Kickstarter is successful we will use it to continue to grow and evolve the game by adding even more content and modules. The more you support us the more we can support you.

( 2017 CROWDFUNDING MODEL )
https://www.patreon.com/trekindustries
We're going to let the 2016 Kickstarter run it's course. We still have just about a month and we still have many campaigns, announcements and interactions as we lead up to the massive Guardians of Orion Official Release via Steam on December 20, 2016. We hope it will succeed but beyond that we ultimately want to:
1. Have an effective model in place that raises more resources which would allow us to deliver more content and modules.
2. Allow fans to have control over the fate of the game and how large it can become.
3. Reward fans with awesome rewards and gifts.

( PATREON )
Our first goal with Patreon (monthly crowdfunding) is to offset the current costs of servers via community support and rewards. The largest expense every month is the server infrastructure/operational costs.
https://www.patreon.com/trekindustries

( EXCLUSIVE REWARDS FOR PATRONS )
We like to offer incredible rewards whenever it comes to fan involvement and our Patreon will offer the most exclusive and incredible rewards to date. We have options for rewards such as:
· Access to DevBetas
· Access to DevDiscords
· Access to Patron-only updates & information
· 1on1 Monthly Dev Chats (Skype/Facetime)
· Private Group Monthly Dev Meetings
· Priority Access to many modules, events and savings
· A variety of music albums!
· Invites to local meetups
· Invites to VIP events (conferences, expos, release parties)
· Physical Items (Shirts, Hoodies, Coffee Cups)
· Limited Edition Items (Statues, Plushies)
· Savings on all Trek/Orion Games
· Coupons for the Trek Store
& more!


( SUSTAINABILITY )
The *good* thing about these servers is that the current price will not grow much even if the player count increases as this is simply the minimum viable operational costs for them to exist. The only times they would grow is when we add ADDITIONAL servers such as new locations around the world to help users better connect.

( MORE APPROACHABLE )
This also keeps the crowdfunding total(s) significantly lower allowing for much more achievable community-based goals, a win for both developers and fans alike.

( LESS=MORE )
The less we have to invest in the operational costs of these servers the more we can invest into adding new content and modules that further your game experience.

( OUR MEDICINE )
We've been working extremely hard on Guardians of Orion v2.0. We are on track for the public release which is rapidly approaching on Dec 20, 2016 and we expect that the new pricing model and content model will better support the game going forward to where we can focus on more exciting goals and continue to evolve the game in exciting and new ways courtesy of your interaction and support.

We are proud to announce that the Jungle moon of Raupi is scheduled to return in The ORION Project!

https://youtu.be/d3CLSs1Sxf8

Raupi was a moon in the New Solar System first introduced in our ORION: Dino Horde experience (2013) and remastered for the 2014 ORION: Prelude conversion.

This is the very first rough look at the Raupi region remastered for Unreal Engine 4 and we wanted to also give an updated look at the currently work-in-progress StarShip Module and WarGames DogFighting Modules!



@STARSHIP MODULE (SCHEDULED FOR v1.7)
The StarShip Module, like many other modules in ORION, is scheduled as a 3-part integration. The first integration is the Flight Model, Network Play and all features including Weapon, Movement, Evasion, Ability, Locking Systems and more!

https://youtu.be/5fNmJWn7QJQ

@WARGAMES MODULE (DOG-FIGHTING)
To coincide with this we've prepared a 24-Player Free-For-All PvP dogfighting game mode called WarGames. This is to illustrate the combat nature of the StarShip module while later additions are scheduled to focus on Cooperative (PvE) gameplay, Discover & Exploration and Indexing!

@ORION: PRELUDE CONTINUATION?
The more support Trek receives the more we can support you back. We'd love to create a small team dedicated to continuing the development of ORION: Prelude but to do this we'd need to secure our current development as well as additional resources. Spread the word if you're a fan of ORION or Prelude and we'll continue to have your back :)

[ Welcome to the Orion Kickstarter! ]
Thank you so much to all of our early donors, we're blown away at all support we've received already! In the first 24 hours we've already accumulated over $2,000, AKA 5% Funded!

@VERSION 1.7
We are currently working very hard on Version 1.7 for ORION and we hope to have a release date that we can announce some time next week.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZP_eQ6NIVvY

@STARSHIP MODULE
One of the most anticipated features in the upcoming v1.7 is the StarShip Module which will allow Guardians to fly around parts of the Galaxy for the very first time!

@STARSHIP TECHNOLOGY (LORE)
This video introduces more/new Orion lore for the first time, examining one of the most talked about aspects of the game lately which was the handling/flight model of StarShip Spaceships. This covers the technology behind it all - we hope you enjoy!

@KICKSTARTER SUCCESS = FREE SHIP!
If the Kickstarter campaign is a success we will be able to grant a free StarShip to ALL Backers of the game. This will be the Interceptor A1 and it's an extremely fast and aggressive Ship with extreme boosting capabilities.

We have some great updates planned and cannot wait to share more! Thanks for all the support.

Make sure to spread the word!

We have huge aspirations for The #ORION Project. We're just coming up on Year 1 and we've already accomplished so much.

We believe that if you do your job for your supporters then those who support you will determine if they want you to continue. This is the best we can do and we're very proud of our community and progress on the project We are here and ready to fight for AND with you.

ORION @ Kickstarter

Our passion is clear. By all means ORION shouldn't even exist considering both failed Kickstarters in 2014 and 2015.

When any other #Kickstarter fails the company take it as a sign of a product not being desired. They certainly don't honor a failed campaign:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/orionprelude/guardians-of-orion/posts/1395367

We don't mind supporting our products but we wouldn't do it to the point of self-destruction. It would have been easier years ago but now I have my own family and I'm also responsible for others and their families and there is less room for extreme risks.









By all means an event failure wouldn't be the end of #Trek, just the end of The ORION Project.

We very much enjoy working on this game together and would love to continue to do that with you which is why we've supported the game when it wasn't supported for so long and for so hard.



We believe PC gamers deserve better than what they are receiving and we believe we can deliver better and we believe our work efforts over the years speak for themselves. This will be up to the gamers and whether they agree with that reality and want this.

We love what we do, we love who we get to do it with and we love who we do it for. I am asking for the opportunity to create, communicate, and deliver the game of my dreams and one that I believe will captivate you for years to come.

So I implore you to do one single thing:
Stop giving your money to assholes that can't deliver and give it to this one that can.

<3 Trek.
