A new video game Kickstarter campaign has been launched for a game described as Die Hard meets the original Deus Ex, and it looks the part. The game is titled Consortium: The Tower, and it’s a “fully standalone, single player, first-person sci-fi immersive simulation.”
The game is set almost entirely in a massive skyscraper in futuristic London, and sees you (playing as you but controlling someone in a parallel world—trippy, right?) and a team of officers trying to stop terrorists who have invaded the skyscraper and save the hostages they’ve taken. It allows you to play however you choose, whether that be using blunt force, stealth, or simply words to talk your way through the situation. The choices you make throughout the game alter how your story plays out, meaning there’s plenty of replayability as you go back and try things differently with each playthrough.
