Consortium imagines a future of giant space planes running on clean energy. The idiosyncratic starting point of this narrative involves the fictional launching of a satellite by the game developer that lets it communicate through a portal with an alternate reality. It’s through this “rift” that players inhabit the role of Bishop Six, a member of the Consortium crew.
Taking place in the year 2042, the first-person RPG/shooter plays out on board an advanced jumbo jet that serves as the staging point for confrontations with mercenaries and the uncovering of an apparent murder mystery. The crew, a kind of paramilitary peacekeeping force, operates in a world still emerging from years of terrible wars over dwindling resources. And it's an open question whether or not the Consortium crew is a force for good in the world.
