Final Source Engine build - 2019 REBALANCE

Greetings Seekers,

We have just pushed the final Source engine build of CONSORTIUM live - v1.26.1 - 2019 REBALANCE. A list of the changes made can be found HERE.

As mentioned below, all combat in the game has been re-balanced to help address some major feedback we've received over the years.

These changes should make for a more entertaining interactive narrative experience. Combat in CONSORTIUM is supposed to essentially be part of the storytelling, but it was too complex, demanding and hard-core before.

Why is this the final build? The answer is simple - we are planning to eventually bring you a fully remastered UE4 version of the game, with additional content and new features.

But in the meantime, this tweaked version of CONSORTIUM should hopefully make it a better companion with Consortium: The Tower. Also of note, an updated trailer is live on the Store page that we think helps conveys the essence of the CONSORTIUM experience.

That's about all for now...

Beta for CONSORTIUM v1.26 - 2019 REBALANCE is live

Hello Seekers,

We have just uploaded an updated version of CONSORTIUM: v1.26 - 2019 REBALANCE.

To get it, simply opt into the Steam beta called "1.26". A list of the changes made so far can be found HERE.

This new version completely changes up the difficulty and overall feel of all combat in the game. So, Kiril and his mercs, the virtual trainer bots and the traitor have all undergone a radical change.

It is an attempt to at least partially address the numerous complaints we have received over the years about the game's combat. We aren't saying that combat is completely fixed, but we are fairly confident that it should be more fun now, especially for new players!

We are actively looking for feedback before pushing this live, so if you're so inclined, consider giving the game a combat playthrough and let us know what you think, either here on Steam or via our Discord channel!

Thanks and we hope you enjoy the changes to the game!

“Consortium is an ingeniously subversive gem, containing enough backstory to fill a Triple-A trilogy while focusing exclusively on an airship crew in distress.”

“...you'll find a game that's punching well above its weight”

About This Game

Game One of the iDGi-1 Trilogy.

A murder mystery, on a plane, in the future.

CONSORTIUM is an interactive narrative experience, first and foremost.

The story begins in our world - the "real world" - where we here at Interdimensional Games have developed a satellite (iDGi-1) capable of opening a digital rift through time and space. Anyone with an internet connection can travel through this rift and awaken within an alternate dimension from our own - the "game world" - in the year 2042.

  • The first of a planned trilogy, CONSORTIUM contains a fully resolvable arc entirely aboard Zenlil, it plays like a "bottle episode" of Star Trek with you being part of the cast.
  • Immerse yourself in an interactive story taking place entirely aboard the C-3800-D "ZENLIL" Consortium Command vessel on December 21st, 2042...
  • Built with a modified version of the SOURCE engine, explore ZENLIL, a living and highly interactive environment with complete freedom and agency. Includes turbulence and non-scripted decompression events!
  • Engage with a cast of over 20 people in innovative and life like conversation. Over 4,000 lines of fully voiced dialogue, each choice changes how they think about you. Or choose not to engage with them at all and never speak a word!
  • Experience an all original orchestral score by award winning composer Jeremy Soule
  • Act as detective investigating an on-board murder, while simultaneously playing peacemaker to a large band of mercenaries who seem to want YOU dead. Or play diplomacy with a smoking barrel, and let the tragedies continue to mount.
  • Dive into a world with well over 150,000 words of back-story and lore, where everything you read, see, speak, or hear relates to the story and characters, and everything is there for a reason.
  • A highly original energy based inventory system with original sci-fi weapons, gadgets and armor.
  • The story unfolds based largely on your actions. You may use diplomacy and talk your way through the entire game - never shooting anyone! OR, decide to use deadly or non-lethal force.
  • Forge lasting relationships with the crew of ZENLIL, and alter the course of the story through your actions. Your choices will change your play experience, and subsequent playthroughs offer the chance to make different decisions and see all new outcomes.
  • Regardless of what you choose to do or not, the experience always moves forward, adapting seamlessly to YOU.

System Requirements

    • OS: Windows Vista/7/8 32bit (NO XP SUPPORT)
    • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.5GHz, AMD Athlon X2 64 2.7GHz
    • Memory: 4 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 260 | AMD Radeon HD 4890 series
    • DirectX: Version 9.0c
    • Storage: 7 GB available space
    • Additional Notes: Of the maximum 4GB of addressable memory space on a 32-bit system (2 ^ 32 = 4,294,967,296 bytes = 4GB), Windows reserves 2GB. This leaves any application (such as Consortium) with a maximum of 2GB to play with. During loading, Consortium can allocate up to 1.8GB worth of memory. If you are running Consortium with a 32 bit machine, be sure to close as many other simultaneously running programs as you can, otherwise "out of memory" crashes may occur.
