What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“CONSORTIUM VR (CVR) is both an Unreal Engine 4.27 remaster of the original CONSORTIUM and an adaptation to modern and highly experimental VR interface standards. CVR Beta was recently made available via the Quest 2 AppLab in March, and since then we have noticed a fair amount of interest in the PC-VR version of our game.

As we are new to the VR domain and this type of content is relatively novel within the VR sphere, we are gradually entering the market and aiming to gather substantial feedback. This will ensure that our priorities for completing the game align with the expectations and desires of our players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“3-6 months, depending on how many folks buy and play our game at this stage and how many additional features we decide to add in response to player community desires.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“During the time that the CONSORTIUM VR Beta is in Early Access, we are planning to:

  • Prioritize new features based on player feedback
  • We intend to create more Virtual Trainer levels and a high-score system with leaderboards for each scenario.
  • Create an extended ending to add an additional 1-2 hours of gameplay to the main story.
  • Add additional polish and improvement to choreography, conversations with V.O.I.C.E. and player choices.
  • Add further refinement and polish to the new Zenlil Defense Minigame
  • We are planning to add additional languages (Japanese and German are our initial priority)
  • The in-game Information Console (featuring ~100 documents from news articles to mission reports to advertisements and everything in between) is undergoing a major polish pass. All documents will be improved/polished + image support thanks to Midjourney A.I. See HERE for more information (and future image samples). https://steamcommunity.com/app/1428880/discussions/0/3828665107782310645/

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“CONSORTIUM VR is currently in BETA and nearing completion. The entire interactive story has been remastered in Unreal Engine 4 and adapted for VR Interactive Cinema. The PCVR Early Access BETA version of CONSORTIUM VR features high-definition volumetric clouds, fully dynamic lights, and high-definition effects, but is functionally identical to the Meta Quest 2 build of CONSORTIUM VR, which was recently launched on the Quest 2 AppLab and here on Steam Early Access.

After reading the above information, you may be wondering: Don't you already have a game in Early Access? Indeed, Consortium: THE TOWER entered Early Access in a pre-alpha state in 2017 and received updates until December 2019. The project remains in Alpha and is ongoing. To provide more information on the status of the TOWER project and our future plans, please see THIS POST: https://steamcommunity.com/app/1428880/discussions/0/3828665107782184402/

Additionally, both games now share a significant portion of the same codebase (in UE4.27). Once CONSORTIUM VR is complete, our primary focus will be finishing THE TOWER. All relevant improvements and features found in CONSORTIUM VR will be incorporated into upcoming builds of Consortium: THE TOWER.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Price will not change when we leave early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We aim to involve the community directly in helping us prioritize our development efforts, ensuring that the final product is as immersive and seamless as possible for all players. We will be closely monitoring player posts on our Discord (https://discord.gg/idgi) and within the Steam community.

Anyone who provides us with feedback or actionable "bug reports" will be eligible for inclusion in the game's credits as an official Beta Tester. Gameplay videos are highly appreciated, but we welcome all forms of actionable feedback. A simple post on our Discord server in the "Bugs and Issues" forum will suffice.”

About This Game

Use our interdimensional satellite, iDGi-1, to inhabit the mind of a newly commissioned officer of the Consortium: an unparalleled peacekeeping force tasked with maintaining global unity while protecting the Earth's environment.

As Consortium Bishop Six, you will assume the role of an investigator tasked with solving a mysterious murder, unveiling concealed conspiracies, and navigating interpersonal relationships among the diverse crew with an innovative branching dialogue system. Consortium boasts a highly interactive narrative, empowering you to make choices that influence the story's trajectory while exploring the nature of trust and loyalty.



  • Introducing V.O.I.C.E: You may use your own voice to engage with a diverse cast of over 20 characters. Navigate a nuanced murder mystery with some potential action that makes up a deeply interactive, 6-10 hour campaign.
  • Freely explore the Consortium Command vessel C-3800-D ZENLIL. Decide to embrace diplomacy and navigate the narrative without ever even raising a weapon, or choose more violent approaches and utilize assault weapons to kill or incapacitate your enemies. Choose to talk to everyone or choose to be a person of few words.
  • Access an in-world Information Console containing over a hundred articles of alt-history, culture, geopolitics, character back-stories and general worldbuilding information.
  • Control an array of weapons, protective gear, medical equipment and more entirely via interactive screens that line your virtual arms.
