orion2Visual novels have always proven to be a solid game medium. Unfortunately, it’s a genre that has yet to really break into North America and achieve the same amount of popularity it has in Asia. However, plenty of people have grown passionate about them over the years and slowly, but surely, the medium is starting to make a notable presence. With Orion, we have a Sci-Fi Visual Novel that could become something beautiful, and give the medium more attention.

Orion centers around Sam Acacious, who’s got a lot on his plate at the moment. He’d just recently been informed that his home, Section 6 within the Orion Torus, is planned to be destroyed in the coming days. He’s skeptical though, could this be an opportunity to rustle some jimmies and create some anarchy? One thing is for certain, it was a message directly for him and he has to do something about it.

Cylight Studios is a post-production start up company with an internationally based staff. They have already created a playable demo of Orion for the public to play but they need some extra funding to afford some of the major gameplay programming, artists, and music. They’re asking for $5K by Sept. 24th and so far, just over $1,000 has been raised. If certain stretch goals are met, we can expect Orion to be refined significantly, including additional areas to explore.
