Back in 2014, indie studio Interdimensional Games released CONSORTIUM, a neat little thing that blended adventure gaming with FPS and RPG elements. Today, in news filed under “unexpected but pleasant surprises”, they announced a sequel.
CONSORTIUM is a first-person game, with shooting in it, but it's not a first-person shooter. Despite the sci-fi setting, and the constant narrative potential for violence, and the moments of actual violence, this is an adventure game. And an RPG. And a pretty good one at that.
