Consortium Reaches Kickstarter Goal

Consortium

With only six days to go before its final deadline, the Kickstarter for Consortium by Interdimensional Games has reached its financial objective of $50,000.

Having reached this goal, final development on the game will commence. The final release is expected sometime this summer.

Consortium is a science-fiction themed first-person game that mixes shooter with role-playing game. It “obliterates the fourth wall” by directly making the people playing the main protagonist.

[adsense250itp]The game is set in a utopian parallel universe in the year 2042. Players take control of the body of Bishop Six, a peacekeeping operative who works for a global government battling to maintain peace as they slowly unify humanity.

A mix of both RPG and first person shooter, the game places a huge emphasis on decisions and actions players make throughout the game. Almost everything players do, from how they communicate with characters to how they deal with enemies, the game will alter accordingly, potentially branching in one of many different directions.

This marks the second time Interdimensional Games has tried to acquire funding for the ambitious project. The first attempt was in December 2012, though that ended just before the start of 2013.

“We decided to cancel the campaign about half way in, as it was taking far too long to generate an awareness of the existence of our game and campaign than the 30 day deadline would allow for,” a statement in the Kickstarter FAQ section from Interdimensional Games states.

The second attempt brought down the amount asked as well as cutting content in order to accommodate the goal change. The developers hope to still add these through their planned stretch goals.

The first of these goals has been set for $70,000. If backers pledge this much to the project the developers will take the extra funds and push the game’s release date to August. This will be done in order to spend time better refining the game and improving the interactivity and dynamics of the Zenlil, the manned space vessel players will inhabit during the game.

Backers of the Kickstarter can still pledge funds to the project netting great benefits depending on the amount given. These include a DRM-free copy of the game, the game’s soundtrack, T-shirts, HD wallpaper, ringtones and a digital document that expands on the lore of the game’s universe.

Players can even directly contribute to the game by earning the chance to beta test a closed beta and work directly with the design team to contribute to the game’s lore. Higher pledges earn backers the ability to have their likeness and voice featured in the game.

The Kickstarter officially ends on April 18. At that point, donations will no longer be accepted.
