We are back this week with something incredibly special for you. We have crafted one of the most intimate and revealing updates that we have ever posted. This is an unparalleled look into the ORION universe - and we are showing it off with tons of never-before-seen artwork, footage and information. We call this The Indie Dream.
Through years of design, creation and just brutally hard work - we have crafted this video in order to give you a better awareness about who we are - what we do - and what we want to accomplish.
The ORION game series has been around for a lot longer than most folks are aware about - the first game design dates back to 1998. We are here to display where that time was spent - and how we are going to use what we’ve developed to not only benefit you as the gamer - but the industry as a whole.
We invite you to take an incredible look at ORION - and the folks over here at Spiral Game Studios - like you never have before. Welcome to the Indie Dream.
THE ROAD AHEAD - KICKSTARTER
We have a lot of work ahead of us. We are wrapping up our incredible KickStarter promotion and we are calling for your help and support. While we have reached our ‘pledged’ goal, it is important to understand that this was not only a “safe” limit - as you have to AT LEAST reach your pledged amount in order to take any funding from KickStarter. If we were to have reached only $9,999 - we would have received $0. On top of this, KickStarter and Amazon take a total of 10% - and just around $1,000 is being spent on preparing the KickStarter gifts.
We at Spiral Game Studios are preparing immense update and a plethora of content to demonstrate our passion for this - but to also make you more comfortable about donating to a worthy cause. We are hoping to reach the desired limit of $15,000 USD and we can only do this with your help. We ask that you tell all of your friends, family, online friends and even share it on your personal blogs and social networks. Helping spread the word is just as appreciated and effective as it is to contribute.
