A slightly belated Happy New Year to you all!
It’s been just a few days since the one year anniversary of CONSORTIUM launching on Steam, and we are proud to say that our game remains as unique and original as the day it launched! We felt an update was in order due to some important announcements about CONSORTIUM as we head into a brand new year, so let’s get down to it. First....
Rock, Paper, Shotgun have recently published a new feature on CONSORTIUM
CONSORTIUM: The Tower Prophecy
We are excited to be at the point where we can officially announce our work toward Game Two of the iDGi Trilogy[thetowerprophecy.com]
Please feel free to share that link far and wide across the internet! Currently the Tower Prophecy team is split into two parts: pre-production, which consists of writers and art, and those working on a crowdfunding pitch video.
Check out a recent post from Vidal Desertch[corporate.interdimensionalgames.com]
(creator of the iDGi-1 satellite) regarding recent developments!
Finally, Please consider signing up for our Game Two mailing list[interdimensionalgames.us9.list-manage.com]
in order to receive updates and have a chance to weigh in on our pitch video efforts before we go live on the campaign. Your feedback will be extremely critical for the final product.
V 1.22 is here
We have just released CONSORTIUM v1.22. Included with the patch are a huge list of fixes (big and small), game balance improvements and tweaks based on the last year of feedback. For a complete list of all new stuff and changes made in V1.22, scroll to the bottom HERE (Spoiler alert!).
We would like to extend a huge THANK-YOU to all players who went out of their way to tell us of issues and bugs on the Steam forums and through email, as this communication helped us immensely in making this patch happen.
Spanish Localization Released
Esto incluye el juego en español!
For a game with as much dialogue as ours this was a major endeavour, and we are happy to now welcome the Spanish gaming community to CONSORTIUM!
Please note, in order to localize the game beyond English we had to make some concessions to how the subtitles work. We plan on refining the system further in the near future, as it is obviously not ideal. Spanish players will still notice written English remaining in some parts of the game, but we made sure that all vital and important parts are fully translated (all player responses, direct NPC dialogue and 99% of the user interface). The only major exception is the Information Console, which is well beyond the scope of what we’re able to translate at this time. Next up, we are looking at translating the game into German, and possibly Polish as well.
Having Issues Running CONSORTIUM?
CONSORTIUM was recently part of a major RPG-themed sale on Humble Bundle, which brought a very large number of new players to the game. While this is of course an amazing thing, at the same time we have been fielding a large number of emails where people have been unable to run the game and/or are experiencing crashes. After investigating every single one, it seems a rather large number of them (90%+) have been due to running CONSORTIUM on systems that are far below minimum specifications (especially when it comes to the video card). If you are having issues with the game, PLEASE check the minimum specifications on the store page before anything else! If this checks out then we absolutely want to hear from you right away – please email firstname.lastname@example.org as we personally investigate every case in an effort to determine what is going on.
That’s all for now, and as usual don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns or generally anything at all that may be on your mind.
