ORION: Prelude

What is ORION: Prelude?  (from Spiral Game Studios)

ORION: Prelude is a fast-paced Sci-Fi First-Person Shooter. It features a retro-vibe, addictive gameplay and insanely awesome features such as jetpacks, dinosaurs and vehicular combat. ORION: Prelude pays homage to other classics that we grew up on that entertained us as gamers and inspired us as developers.


ORION: Prelude is a software program developed by Spiral Game Studios. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The setup package generally installs about 103 files and is usually about 253.01 MB (265,300,528 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 8 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 60% of users of ORION: Prelude come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
