Might Not Be Terrible Now – Orion: Prelude Free All Week

The last time we wrote about dinosaurs-versus-jetpacks multiplayer shooter Orion: Prelude [official site] it was 2012, after which I suspect we realised it was broken and rubbish and stopped paying attention. It's three years later however and its developers haven't stopped updating it in that time, and in canny fashion they're now bragging about their support, noting their improved Steam user review rating, and making…

Jurassic Jetpacks – ORION: Dino Beatdown

I'm in two minds about this multiplayer shooter from the ORION: Prelude team that somehow isn't ORION: Prelude. Is ORION: Dino Beatdown a brilliant name for a game, or is it a horrible name for anything? One thing I do know, despite the laudable presence of dinosaurs and jetpacks, I'd be a lot happier if the dinosaurs were actually using the jetpacks. As it is,…

Jetpackasaurus: Orion Prelude Footage

There are a number of games wise enough to be including dinosaurs of late, but few have had the sense to also put in jetpacks. (Never forgetting Jetpack Brontosaurus of course.) That's why Orion: Prelude keeps catching our eye. The team say they're just through a big internal deadline, and to celebrate they've put together some footage of their latest accomplishments. Which are mostly dinosaurs…

Double The Dinosaurs: Orion Prelude Grows

I really wish Orion: Prelude would hurry up. I feel like we've been posting about it for six hundred years. It's actually only been about eight months, making me massively unfair. But still. The exciting news today? TWICE AS MANY DINOSAURS! Spiral's FPS multiplayer will now include the T-Rex, raptor, rham-phorynchus (as everyone was expecting), stegosaurus, argentinosaurus, and crowd favourite, triceratops. There's pictures of them…

Orion: Prelude, Now With More Dinosaur

Orion: Prelude seems to be getting a fair bit of press. Why is that? Well, it's because the game features Tribes-like jetpacks, Halo-like jeeps and, uh, Cretaceous-era-like dinosaur, Tyrannosaurus. (In fact their recent email to us the devs finished the subject line with (DINOSAURS!) just to be clear, or maybe because they still can't quite believe it. These chaps from Spiral were showing all this…

Spiral Discusses “The Indie Dream”

You may remember that only four days ago Jim spoke to Spiral's David Prassel about their forthcoming indie shooter, ORION: Prelude. A lot of the same sentiments about their desire to change how games are made, as well as played, are captured in a new video they've put together, called The Indie Dream. Bear with it for the first minute or so - the dodgy…

Spiral Talk Orion: Prelude, Kickstarter

If you've been following the development of Orion: Prelude - the sci-fi action game of jetpack combat and dinosaurs - then you might be aware that the recently team appealed to crowd-sourced money thing Kickstarter to get the project funded. I took some time to take to Spiral's David Prassel about raising money through Kickstarter, and the overall state of the project. Read on for…

Command Carriers: Orion: Prelude

An email arrived from Orion: Prelude developers, Spiral Game Studios, asking us if we miss Starsiege: Tribes. Which I misread as "Miss Starsiege: Tribes", which would be the strangest beauty contest ever. It is, in fact, the multiplayer shooter Alec mentioned a couple of weeks back, based on the success of their previous Orion: Source mod experiment. Oh, and it contains dinosaurs of course. And…
