OnLive Version of ORION: Dino Beatdown Gets Delayed to May 25, 2012

ORION: Dino Beatdown got an original release date of Friday, April 20, 2012 for OnLive and Steam from its developer Spiral Game Studios. Well, that release date has been pushed back a good month to May 25, 2012 for OnLive. The price of ORION: Dino Beatdown will be $9.99 for OnLive and Steam.

Here's the official blurb from Spiral Game Studios:

It is with a sad notion that we must announce a slight delay for the OnLive version of ORION: Dino Beatdown. We have been working feverishly these last few months in order to get this game out and in the last few weeks we experienced a few more problems than we would like.

Given that we are a small indie developer we cannot be as stretched as thin as we’d sometimes like and in the end we had to make some hard choices. This is resulting in a 1 month delay for the OnLive version of the game. We are now targeting a release date of May 25th, 2012 and will continue posting updates regarding the game.

Here's more info about ORION: Dino Beatdown:


Dinosaurs? Jetpacks? This New Shooter Has Them Both.

ORION: Dino Beatdown is an upcoming team-based multiplayer shooter for OnLive and PC via Steam. Players take control of guys using jetpacks who face waves of dinosaurs, and have to shoot them all in their pointy little faces.

Not that all the faces are little. As you'll see in the clip below.



It's being worked on by Spiral Game Studios, a new developer made up of people whose credits include titles such as Unreal Tournament, BioShock, Ghost ReconBorderlands, Jade Empire, Halo, Mortal Kombat and...Forza Motorsport. If you think the name, and the premise, sounds familiar, that's because they're the same guys working on Orion: Prelude, a game that is also coming to OnLive. Which is also about shooting dinosaurs.

Here is a brief overview of ORION: Dino Beatdown, courtesy of Spiral Game Studios:
