Immersive sim Consortium: The Tower hits early access

One grand dream of the immersive sim genre is Deus Ex director Warren Spector's one city block, an idea for a game simulating one city block and its inhabitants in great detail to set up so many systems to play with. Consortium: The Tower [official site] might not have the dream's full detail but it is a pretty complex immersive sim and it is set…

Consortium: The Tower Hits Funding Goal On Fig

Consortium is a very RPS-y sort of a game - real-time adventure-o-roleplaying, story branches, a big plane, conspiracy, complex social relationships, fourth wall-poking, a bit of wonkiness, and all that jazz.

Developers Interdimensional Games fell far short when they tried to crowdfund sequel Consortium: The Tower [official site] - pitched as 'Deus…

Towering: Consortium Free Until Noon Tomorrow

Consortium [official site] is a fascinating game and I'll go into a proper sulk if the sequel's Kickstarter fails. Things aren't looking good, with $310,000 left to raise and only a week of the campaign left. The original is an immersive sim that feels like a version of the 'single city block' game.

Everything takes place in real-time and though the fourth…

Consortium: The Tower Prophecy Trailer Falls On London

I haven't played Consortium [official site], but I've read enough to know I should. Consortium was an RPG which favored social interaction over combat, a story that could turn out a dozen different ways, and an ambitious attempt to create a lot of the things people say they want. So maybe you also want a follow-up, set in a new place, with new characters, but…

Consort With Consortium On January 8th

The 2014th year of this Earth's existence could be off to a very good start, at least in terms of game releases. Along with the news that Nidhogg will finally be available, after four centuries of appearances at conventions and underground LAN parties, the fascinating narrative of sci-fi RPG Consortium will also be on sale. Release is set for January 8th and we'll have full…

Consortium Wins Its Space Race On Kickstarter

What would happen if you popped a party popper in space? That is the question that Interdimensional Games will have to tweet at Commander Hadfield, because their impressive space RPG Consortium has just achieved warp speed (was funded) on Kickstarter. The Source Engine game of space intrigue on a fully-realised space ship should be arriving in July of this year, ahead of all the other…
