Orion: Prelude is a fast-paced sci-fi first-person shooter featuring a retro-vibe, addictive gameplay and insanely awesome features such as jetpacks, dinosaurs and vehicular combat.

Spiral Game Studios announce the end of Spiral Game Studios. All content, IP, research and technology is being absorbed into the newly formed TREK Industries courtesy of the TREK Play label.

Orion: Prelude pays homage to other classics that we grew up on that entertained us as gamers and inspired us as developers. You will see insipiration from classics such as Unreal Tournament ('99), Quake 2 CTF, Starsiege: Tribes, Counter-Strike.

TREK Industries has taken those elements and put them into a blender and mixed in our own unique takes and twists in the design and mechanics department. With only a first glance at ORION: Prelude, you will know that this is a game being made by gamers.

All owners of a Steam copy of ORION: Dino Horde will be happy to know that their game will be evolving (for free) into ORION: Prelude automatically via Steam.
