In just six days, Interdimensional Games has achieved its initial goal of $300,000 USD ($387,316.50 CAD) on the Fig crowdfunding platform for CONSORTIUM: The Tower. More than 2,300 backers have pledged for rewards or registered their investment interest for the upcoming science fiction simulation game, after surpassing the halfway mark in the first 24 hours.
“Getting this volume of support in such a short time has been truly humbling, and it’s clear that fans are as excited about the next game in the CONSORTIUM trilogy as we are,” said Gregory MacMartin, CEO, Interdimensional Games. “We’re striving to deliver the twisting, immersive game that fans desire, and can provide even more content through our upcoming stretch goals.”
The first stretch goal, at the $350,000 milestone, will introduce “Equipment Engineering,” which allows players to upgrade their Personal Containment Unit (P.C.U.) in The Tower to recycle materials and combine them to upgrade their equipment. Additional stretch goals will be revealed at a later date.
“It’s great to add another successful campaign to our roster, and help ensure that innovative titles like The Tower will make it to launch,” said Justin Bailey, Founder and CEO, Fig. “Even better, over two thirds of backers have chosen to support the game through investment reservations, thereby reserving a stake in the potential financial success of the title, in addition to any pledges of rewards they may have made.”
The crowdfunding campaign will be live on Fig until May 11.
