    Just checked the Orions developers web site and apparently Orions 2: The Deckmasters is their next iPhone game.

    http://imoregames.com/

    Here is more info courtesy of ipadlips

    The game is not yet finished.

    Info: The Orions2 is based on the original Orions game, same mechanics slightly improved, except with absolutely cool new cards.

    We have also majorly remade the campaign mode, and for single duels we added new game modes:

    - Draft and Custom Deck, along with a deck editor - so you can now design your own decks instead of getting random cards. We simplified the building and resources aspects of the game, encouraging players to build more dwellings, and believe made the overall experience much more fun.

    We are definitely investigating the possibility of adding multiplayer through GameCenter, however I can't say if it'll make its way to the 1.0 release, which is scheduled for end of November.

    YEAH - and after releasing it and making a few bucks - will the devs let it pine away like Orions? Unsupported, without the add-ons, just calming down the community from time to time?

    No, sorry - I don't support this kind of attitude. The devs didn't dealt fairly with their customers in the past, even if we "begged" them again and again to care.

    I remember that the devs complained in this forum, that Orions was not the million-seller they hoped for and dropped it like a hot potato. And if Orion wasn't the expected success, as the devs stated - why bother to make a second part?

    And now Orions 2? A game with no demand on this platform? But we shall give the devs our bucks anyway?
    How ridiculous.

    The devs even kinda lied to us - and that's a fact I won't forget. You'll find everything here:

    I'm not stupid. I don't trust them anymore.

    I agree with Vovin. I would like to hear how the game will be supported because the last one was sort of just dropped. I am all for sequels and improvements and such but not if they too will be abandoned and are merely opportunities to make another quick buck from the few that didn't learn a lesson the first time.

    Not to mention this was supposed to be an expansion to the old version and released this past summer. So -- now in November there is a new unfinished game?

    Keeping my eyes open but also reluctant to get excited until I see what happens.

    This looks good but the developers lack of support for their last game has me thinking I'll just wait for Shadow Era.

    well either way i'm pretty excited about a new card game coming out! i liked the first Orions, and i'm sure more of the same is gonna be just as good. its a shame nobody is putting out any other card battlers, cause they are awesome!!
    At least to pass the time until shadow era comes out..

    I have mixed feelings about that. The lack of support for orions was crap.. The game was and is expensive and has still alot of bugs. So thoose will never be fixed..

    So why a orions2 its the same with the same appeal to the same customer.
    So if this wont be a tp10 title we can suppose to see no support either.

    Very mixxed feelings about that...

    Well despite lack of support, fact is the dev hasn't stopped working. At this point in time, updating the original orions would yield decent customer satisfaction but I can't imagine there being any new sales. A sequel has the potential to do both, which I hope it does. If multiplayer does get integrated, then I would be one happy camper.
