    As promised, we post it in here first.
    Team Orbit is now going into production: http://bodyweapon.com

    Worry not, Orbit Wars will soon follow.
    And yes, we are still very much a part of this community.
    After all, NeoCairo is still in production.

    Party on...

    Many team members already have had their hands on UE3, much of what we utilize will be primarily working with the new Tech. To say "great things are a foot" would be an understatement :)

    Well Sandy, some things we can talk about. ThunderBear wrote "The Shadow Kumite". He'll be directing it. Mario's brother is also a film director (runs in the family). Maybe you did not know, many team orbit members work in film. We have friends at Digital.

    Too true BlackCat, many of us here at Team Orbit have training and experience in film, from script to screen we have done it all. Its going to be a great pleasure bringing enjoyment to both film viewers and gamers in the near future.

    Heh, none of this is produced completely by Team Orbit.
    Co-production would be more accurate.
    Like any motion picture or video game, there are multiple elements involved.
    Let's just leave it at that until we're clear to release more info along those lines.

    Btw, hal's "rumor" on BeyondUnreal.com is correct, 3DRetro.com has the exclusive first run on the official bodyweapon action figures. Something to that effect should be up on their page in the next few days.

    This is the first of many major steps for Team Orbit into becoming a leading multimedia force. The establishment of this project will seed the future success of Team Orbit as well as making a dramatic statement of our capabilities in the here and now.

    Team Orbit has been silently working for quite a while. We have many things planned. We anticipate this will just be the beginning!

    We have plans for new dynamic gameplay elements hithroto unknown with the Unreal Engine. The advances team members made working on Neo Cairo/Orbit Wars is just one of our more valuable assets in developing new titles.
