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.
You can read much more about Consortium: The Tower and also see the Kickstarter campaign video and some gameplay preview videos below.
Vulture Industries are as great as they are weird! “Avant-garde black metal” only begins to scratch the surface of what is going on with this band from Bergen, Norway.
Imagine a singer who looks and performs like Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull but sounds like Serj Tankian from System of a Down fronting a progressive metal band that veers through the spectrum of music from out-and-out black metal to ragtime piano runs and full-blown Vaudevillian vocals with carnival barker interludes. If that intrigues you, then you should know Vulture Industries!
