The Orbium (www.theorbium.com) is tinydark's proprietary platform for publishing and managing our games. It is a Single Sign-On service that houses the player's game accounts under one roof. Players can add friends, send and manage in-game requests to each other, view their friends' recent achievements, and view each game's news. It's a modest social network for all tinydark games.
The Orbium translates to "The Orbits" in Latin, referencing the game worlds we create. Orbium is designed ethically: we don't require an email in order to play, and all emails are opt-in. Our premium currency is not bundled; the player can choose exactly how many Orbs they want to purchase. Upcoming features include the ability to use Orbium as a guest, a chat/message system, and the Dedication Points system.
