CONSORTIUM: The Tower – Gameplay Teaser Trailer

We are in the process of releasing the following info to the world:

In anticipation of a follow-up crowdfunding campaign to the critically acclaimed Consortium, Interdimensional Games (iDGi) has released a teaser trailer for Consortium: The Tower Prophecy. Expanding the current IP, The Tower Prophecy is a new first-person science fiction interactive narrative RPG created using the Unreal 4 Engine and set within the confines of a massive tower looming over Central London.

The Tower Prophecy is both a direct sequel to last year’s fourth wall breaking Consortium, and also a stand-alone game in its own right. “It’s not well known yet, but I’m proud to say that even one year after its release, Consortium remains a highly unique first-person interactive narrative,” Gregory MacMartin, CEO of iDGi said. “No two players can have the exact same experience. The iDGi-1 Interactive Narrative Technology allows for a unique combination of scripted narrative and player agency. By harnessing and building upon existing technology, mechanics and content developed for Consortium, The Tower Prophecy will push the boundaries of seamlessly blending narrative and player freedom even further, and will offer a more polished and well-rounded experience.”

In The Tower Prophecy players will explore the futuristic Churchill Tower in the heart of Central London, where they will be able to seamlessly fight, explore, sneak or talk their way through the entire experience, or any combination thereof. The Churchill Tower and its inhabitants are all being designed as part of a seamless open-world, sand-box game environment, and the game’s narrative will shape itself to player decisions and actions in ways never before seen.

iDGi is preparing a crowdfunding campaign for launch later this year to help raise the production budget for the effort. “We are asking anyone who likes what they see in this reveal trailer and are interested to learn more about our game to please consider subscribing to our mailing list in order to keep up to date on progress and details as we move forward.”

Winter Solstice 2014 and The Tower

Hello Seekers,

It has been a long time since I last made a post here, and I thought it was about time I came out from hibernation to let everyone know what’s been going on. The iDGi team and I have been working tirelessly in our efforts to return to the CONSORTIUM world; I have not slept well in several weeks, my wife and child barely see me anymore, and I think I’m starting to lose my mind a little… but I finally have some good news to share!

It has been nearly a year since the release of CONSORTIUM and the day we first opened the rift. Improvements and patches to the experience have resulted in a more stable connection to the other universe, but one question still remains: how can we re-establish with the other world and once more take the reins of Bishop Six to continue his struggle against an undefined, yet mysteriously prevalent enemy? Or in other words, how can we possibly make it to the Churchill Tower when all currently available roads lead to disaster?

Over the past few months, in anticipation of the Winter Solstice, we have sent quite a few blind messages through the rift in an attempt to reach the King. Our intention was to contact the King so that we may receive information to upgrade the iDGi-1 satellite. We must learn how to begin a new connection back in time, only moments before Bishop Six jumps from Zenlil, so that we may warn the crew of impending trouble.

Yesterday was the Winter Solstice of 2014, and as expected we experienced a greater-than-usual connectivity spike from the other side of the rift. For those of you unaware, for several hours during the Winter Solstice of each year the connection between our worlds – or more specifically our connection to the Consortium King – becomes stronger. We are excited to say that this year was no different as we received a highly informative transmission. Though still being decoded by us, included in this transmission was a glimpse into what awaits us on the Churchill Tower as seen from the Bishop’s perspective. In fact, once entirely decoded we believe we are looking at several minutes of video footage depicting the Bishop within the tower. This in turn tells us one very important piece of information: Bishop Six is at least capable of surviving the freefall.

With that being said, we are now more driven than ever to see a return to their world. We have learned much from the Winter Solstice transmission, and with this information we plan to put together a crowdfunding campaign in order to raise the necessary funds to upgrade the iDGi-1 satellite and bring CONSORTIUM: The Tower Prophecy to life.

http://www.thetowerprophecy.com is now up and running. Included is an image of the Churchill Tower in all its glory (interpretively pieced together from current information on the tower), and at the bottom of the page you will find a place to join the Tower Prophecy mailing list. If you have not already, please consider throwing down your email as this will help us gauge general interest in a crowdfunding campaign as well as give you access to weigh in on early versions of a crowdfunding campaign video before we go live! We also plan to use this mailing list as a source of feedback, and as a way to remain connected to you as we move forward into production.

I suppose that is all for now!  It’s time for me to dive back into the data stream to get as much done as I can before heading home for a few days holiday – I promised my wife no computer access for three days over Christmas.

Thank you for reading, and I wish you all an amazing holiday season and an even more spectacular new year! If you have any questions or ideas or concerns or anything of that nature, please do not hesitate to email support@interdimensionalgames.com and an appropriate team member will reply ASAP.

Sincerely,

Vidal Desertch

PAX Prime video and CONSORTIUM 2 mailing list

Greetings Seekers,

We wanted to share a video with you all, showing a bit of the team and our booth at the insanity that was PAX Prime. It truly was an amazing experience and we can’t stress enough how much fun we had showcasing the game to so many new people, as well as meeting a few already-fans along the way!

Please consider also signing up for our exclusive mailing list, where we will be posting (important) news and information on our progress toward CONSORTIUM 2.

The more people willing to sign up for our mailing list, the more we’ll be able to better gauge interest in the sequel and its Kickstarter campaign we have been steadily working toward.

To sign up, simply go HERE.

We promise to NEVER share your emails with anyone, and only let you know about important and significant updates in the world of CONSORTIUM! Signing up will also automatically enter you into any raffles we hold to win posters, t-shirts and other iDGi and CONSORTIUM goodies along the way. We did a few such draws at PAX and thought, hell, we should do more of those! If there was a physical reward from our Kickstarter campaign that you had your eye on but were never able to get your hands on, this would especially be for you.

Cheers and thanks for reading!

-The CONSORTIUM team
