Consortium - About to be Cancelled
In a 'backers only' post the devs of Consortium announce that they are in the process of closing the campaing on Kickstarter. Being at just below 10K and a target of 200K with just 13 days to go, this looks like a sensible move to make.
They are planning to restart early in the new year , but I am not sure that this is the best time to start a campaign.
Development on the game will continue and can be followed on their blog.
