Description

O-R-B is a game about the death and the birth of a star. Shortly after his home is destroyed, Orb finds himself caught in an alternate dimension called the Puzzleverse. Here, he quickly learns of Ophicius, the evil behind his home world devastation, who is based in the center of this new dimension. Reaching him will be no easy task as he is surrounded by puzzles and wormhole challenges - which increase in difficulty the closer Orb gets to his goal. Orb will need to discover the 12 fragments of the galaxy, hidden away throughout the constellations of the Puzzleverse. Only then, will he hold the power to face and defeat Ophicius.

History

Ever played a game when you were around 10 or 11 and the concepts of the game stuck with you throughout your life? Ever had this never ending itch, that you periodically scratch every once in a while? Well the history of O-R-B is much like my itch. I had scratched this itch slightly by starting O-R-B's predecessor back in 1988 - age 16 - using Delphi and an Open GL framework. After getting relatively far with the concept, the game drifted away only to make a return around 3 years ago (2013) - this time in 3D. Sure, building the game in 3D allowed me to add some nice dimension - not only in terms of visuals, but also in terms of the puzzles and puzzle elements themselves. However I was never really satisfied with the game as it was failing to capture the essence of my original vision. This version of the game was short lived and was put away for a rainy day. Come 2015. The itch was now no longer a small little annoyance - it dominated my thoughts - and O-R-B was born. Through this game I will finally be able to reach the goal that I had once started in 1988: Finish the game, take it to the finish line, and close this chapter.
