Consortium was released last year as the first game in the iDGi Trilogy, a universe created by Interdimensional Games. An interactive story game, it featured a fully fleshed out plot, but left many links and hints to upcoming games peppered throughout. Now, the developers have released a gameplay teaser for the second title, The Tower Prophecy.
The Tower Prophecy, while a direct sequel, is also considered a stand-along game. Instead of a spaceship, the second game takes place in futuristic London, specifically Churchill Tower. The game world will be completely open, letting players seamlessly engage with the narrative as they tackle the experience in a number of ways, using familiar mechanics like combat, conversation, stealth, and so on.
Similarly to the original, The Tower Prophecy will use Interdimensional Games’ narrative engine, which attempts to combine a narrative experience with player choices. Players can expect a lot of freedom in tackling the story, and yet its structure should remain well-designed.
Later this year, the studio plans of starting a crowdfunding campaign for The Tower Prophecy. Interested gamers can put themselves on a subscription list to get updates.
