Orion [Sci-Fi] (Steam)

Check it out on Steam!
Check out our revised demo of the game here!

Sam is afraid. And why wouldn’t he be? He’s just been told that his home, Section 6 of the Orion Torus, is going to be destroyed within days. Encoded messages like this have been sent to people all across the ship by members of the underground dissidents; could this just be a ploy to rain instability on government control? Or is there a deeper meaning behind this information? In the back of his mind, one fact repeats itself: this message was given to him and only him…

But why? ...

Update (6/16/15): We've been Greenlit! Thanks to everyone for your awesome support!


Update (9/28/15): The game has been released on Steam!

Oh! I just saw this other day on Kickstarter! It seemed very cool and I love the CG art!
I'm trying the demo right now and will give some feedbacks on it. Good luck with the Kickstarting!

Best of luck with your Kickstarter! It looks very interesting and I'm excited to try the demo! :D

The music is especially beautiful and caught my attention right away when I started watching the trailer. I love the tracks you linked - Tav and Nathanael are two very talented composers!

Damn I wish I had the money now to help out with this :\

Will you by any chance, be open to donations later on after the kickstarter has finished?
Cause I would like to give a little towards, but can't afford right now.

Absolutely! But, I must stress that without a successful KS, we won't have the resources to pay our amazing team for the full game.

I just finished the demo! Again, love the artwork. Since there's only one choice in the demo and it's fairly short so I can't say much. The voiceovers are pretty good. Some of them are decent. My fav. would be the main character - Sam's voice and his brother, Louca's voice. Virgil's voice kind of cracked me up. My two fav. characters so far are Arwa (despite she didn't appear much, but she has that Zoe Hange kind of personality that I like) and pre-game Cyrus. The interface is pretty clean, I love the GUI work. The demo didn't reveal much and leave much hanging and questions. Good job on it! I'm really looking forward to see this game completed. I will try to support if I can :)
At the end of the demo, I kind of expect that Mari is the other person. When Cyrus turns out to be all dark and evil, it killed all of my love reserved for him as a character at first. ;))

Just finished the demo, it's quite interesting and I want to see the complete story. Went to the Kickstarter page and made a donation, to help things along. C'mon, all you sci-fi fans, let's make the Kickstarter campaign a huge success!
