You only have two weeks left to save big on the ORION game series. Both titles are going to be going up in price for a variety of reasons which are explained in more detail here
We have attempted many other models and opportunities, all of which are 3rd party or out of our control. So we must simply use the variables we *do* have direct control over and this includes pricing models.
The new pricing model (only affecting new buyers starting Dec 20, 2016 and any gift copies you may already have in your inventory once this date is passed) is reflected below:
• ORION (Starter Edition) $24.99
• ORION (Pioneer Edition) $49.99
• ORION (Elite Edition) $99.99
The pricing model for our first game, ORION: Prelude will also be changing*:
• ORION: Prelude (Starter Edition) $4.99*
• ORION: Prelude (Ultimate Edition) $9.99

So spread the word! Early birds get the worms.
It is no surprise that we constantly want to grow and evolve our games. Guardians of Orion is no different! We have so many ideas for content and modules and so do our fans. We want to make as many of them as possible and the developers on Guardians of Orion have been willing to commit years of their life to fulfilling this experience!
( PATREON )
Our first goal with Patreon (monthly crowdfunding) is to offset the current costs of servers via community support and rewards. The largest expense every month is the server infrastructure/operational costs.
( EXCLUSIVE REWARDS FOR PATRONS )
We like to offer incredible rewards whenever it comes to fan involvement and our Patreon will offer the most exclusive and incredible rewards to date. We have options for rewards such as:
· Access to DevBetas
· Access to DevDiscords
· Access to Patron-only updates & information
· 1on1 Monthly Dev Chats (Skype/Facetime)
· Private Group Monthly Dev Meetings
· Priority Access to many modules, events and savings
· A variety of music albums!
· Invites to local meetups
· Invites to VIP events (conferences, expos, release parties)
· Physical Items (Shirts, Hoodies, Coffee Cups)
· Limited Edition Items (Statues, Plushies)
· Savings on all Trek/Orion Games
· Coupons for the Trek Store
( SUSTAINABILITY )
The *good* thing about these servers is that the current price will not grow much even if the player count increases as this is simply the minimum viable operational costs for them to exist. The only times they would grow is when we add ADDITIONAL servers such as new locations around the world to help users better connect.
( MORE APPROACHABLE )
This also keeps the crowdfunding total(s) significantly lower allowing for much more achievable community-based goals, a win for both developers and fans alike.
( LESS=MORE )
The less we have to invest in the operational costs of these servers the more we can invest into adding new content and modules that further your game experience.
( OUR MEDICINE )
We've been working extremely hard on Guardians of Orion v2.0. We are on track for the public release which is rapidly approaching on Dec 20, 2016 and we expect that the new pricing model and content model will better support the game going forward to where we can focus on more exciting goals and continue to evolve the game in exciting and new ways courtesy of your interaction and support.
