World of Hurt


Sit down for this one.  We have some sad news.  We were feverishly working towards release and oh so close to it that it was both tasty and terrifying.  Over the course of the last few days we have had a string of unfortunate events tackle on us like little anchors that ultimately have spread us too thin.  We sadly have to miss our awesome release date and push the game back by a mere fourteen (14) days and will be releasing on Friday, May 4th, 2012 (05/04/2012).

We are extremely sad with this as it has been a long journey and all we want to do is punch Raptors in the face with you.  So today is all about making that wound hurt a bit less by giving you gifts and love in the form of media, trailers and more.  


The Review Build of the game will be available and distributed out on Monday, April 30th, 2012.  If you are interested in receiving Review Keys and Promotional Codes to hand out as giveaways please contact me directly at: 

There are already some competitions going around to earn a free copy of ORION: Dino Beatdown and these are still in effect.  It’s just that the reward will be slightly behind.  So continue going for it and I hope you all win - even though that is not possible.  


Our second video documentary has been unleashed! "World of Hurt" goes over all of the Player Classes and Gear in the game including the three (3) Player Stores (Barracks, Armory, Garage) and the Weapons, Upgrades, Perks and Vehicles you can buy in the game.  Think of this as a video apology letter for our short but sad delay:

On top of this we are releasing new official screenshots relating to all of the Player Classes and Gear located in the Day 1 version of ORION: Dino Beatdown:


The third video documentary is coming out on Wednesday, April 25th, 2012 and will focus on all of the Dinosaurs and Worlds in the commercial release of the game.



As previously promised we are going to be hooking up EVERY single person that donated to our KickStarter campaign.  This includes everyone that donated $1 - $1,000.  

We are going to be distributing your keys via your KickStarter email address and we will be doing this in 4 waves (of 100 - alphabetically) leading up to the release.  This will allow for early play time as a thank you and an appreciation for your kindness and support.  First wave will be going out on Monday, April 30th, 2012.


Another great program we will be doing is the Remembrance Program.  We are offering FREE copies of the game to any and all former developers that worked on ORION in any form or way.  This even includes the heay pre-production period when it was under the ‘INCOMING' IP (1997-2004).  Over the years some of us lose contact and others vanish so hopefully this finds some of you :)

About Us

Spiral Game Studios intends to bring the fun and excitement back to the action genre, by focusing on its core values: intuitive gameplay, tight controls, frustration-free designs, and competitive, skill-based challenge. These elements are found in some games; sometimes a game incorporates a few of them. Rarely will you find a game that focuses on every aspect of a "fun" game, and those that do are the games that players still come back to decades after they were made. We hope to stay true to these values by introducing our first project: Orion.
