Donate to indie game ORION: Prelude's development, get fancy swag

Feeling generous? Does Tuesday do that to you? Well, you’re in luck, Mr. Generous Tuesday, because we found something you can support - the development of upcoming PSN/XBLA/PC first-person shooter ORION: Prelude. And you might get some nice booty for your big heartedness.

Above: Jetpacks and dinosaurs: two great tastes that taste great together

Developer Spiral Game Studios opened up a Kickstarter page to help fund the upcoming downloadable blast fest. Evidently, the game involves jet packs and dinosaurs as well as, well, blasting things (which kind of sweetens the deal). Donations will help “lock and secure key developers” and ensure a polished product sooner than later, as well as fund an upcoming multiplayer beta test.

Donors of certain dollar amounts will receive thank you gifts ranging from t-shirts to signed concept art. If you’re feeling extra philanthropic, a $1,000 donation will net you an achievement named after you. Of course, most actual names would make for kind of lame cheevos, so it’s totally cool to legally rename yourself “David Lo Pan” for this occasion.

Check out a quick teaser for it below:

    Game looks like Halo, Tribes, and Turrok all smashed together. Pretty cool (:

    For $10,000 the lead developer will blow you.

    I gotta be honest, its kinda tempting to have an achievment and campaign character named after you. $1000 though? I think my main concern would be over whether or not the game actually gets released, plus I remember reading how cheapyd over at cheapassgamer only donated like $1300 for a character/paragraph of dialogue in Saints Row 3... personally THAT sounds alot cooler to me, and not much more either! The game does look pretty cool though.

    Wow... If the rest of the soundtrack is as beautiful as that piano bit I'd donate just to get a copy of it.
