Orion Prelude Evolves To Commercial Project


Astute (and handsome) readers will recall that we've been following the hyperbolically ludicrous-looking dinosaurs-versus-jetpack-battlesuits-plus-other-stuff Half-Life 2 mod, Orion: Prelude since it started looking like a contender. Now, however, it's pushed itself even further into the realms of awesomeness by becoming a commercial project, Orion Project. The mod team have formed "Spiral Game Studios" and say: "ORION: Prelude pays homage to other classics that we grew up on that entertained us as gamers as well as inspired us as developers. You will see inspiration from classics such as the Unreal Tournament series, Quake 2 CTF, Starsiege: Tribes, early Counter-Strike betas and plenty of our own unique takes and twists in the design and mechanics." There's loads more information and some more visuals here, as well as confirmation of "Dinosaur Interaction" on the feature list. Happy days. Oh - and here's some footage of the previous Orion Source Multiplayer Beta to give a vibe. First real video at PAX.
