Since its release 2 years ago, our first game, Era: The Consortium, has immersed fans in the rich, detailed worlds and society of Humanity’s future.
Inspired by a lifetime love of Sci-Fi, Era: The Consortium offers the chance to play any subgenre you want just by choosing a specific point in the 500-year history!
From games about a Star Wars-type Resistance against an oppressive government to exploration in a giant starship, from cyberpunk to all-out war with an invading alien race, and from transhumanism to survival horror in the vein of Dead Space… the choice is yours!
The Consortium is a huge, interplanetary society, comprising of multiple alien races who populate three star systems. The government of the Consortium is one where financial power gives one direct political power. As a result, the eight most powerful companies effectively rule over the Consortium, defending their monopolies and manipulating each other and the population in an unending struggle for power.
The Resistance has responded to this by attempting to overthrow the Big Eight. Although they are labelled rebels, many of them fight for the good of the people.
You can join either faction as a member of any of 5 playable sentient species who inhabit the Consortium, choosing from huge numbers of backgrounds and decide where in the 500 years of history you wish to play. You might…
…be one of the first colonists on a new world, far from Earth.
…explore strange, new worlds.
…make the first contact with an alien race.
…fight in a war where the very existence of the Consortium hangs in the balance.
…join a Resistance movement and fight to save 14 billion lives from a plot by powerful individuals.
You may begin as a terrified civilian, forced into combat, but you’ll have abilities that will keep you alive and ahead of the Smertios Security soldiers who are pursuing you… as long as you keep your wits about you!
You’ll have your chance to become a trusted member of the Resistance or to join another company within the Consortium for protection… You won’t be worrying about equipment – you’ll be given whatever it is you need to complete your mission.
This game gives you a universe of choices: fight with a faction or choose your own path.
