The obligatory first-person-prose game of the competition. Well, it's the only one, so I'll cope. [Footnote: okay, I forgot about Bellclap, but that's a wacky first-person.]
No matter how much you want to use an adjective form of "Orion", let me tell you -- "Orionion" is the wrong choice.
This is quite the opposite of "Trading Punches". The gameplay was very nice; you can explore, you have a helpful NPC, you can figure stuff out. The writing was good enough. But the story itself was thin, a rehash of old SF cliches played out with no subtlety at all.
Still, I had fun playing it.
