Great news for all Torment fans as Torment: Tides of Numenera’s Kickstarter campaign has been a big success. Torment: Tides of Numenera is now the highest Kickstarter-funded game, and has managed to surpass its highest stetch goal (though inXile has added two new stretch goals). Therefore, inXile Entertainment will now create the game of their dreams, a game that will have an enormous world in which Chris Avellone, creator of the first Torment game, will help crafting it.
Torment: Tides of Numenera is a game set in the world of Monte Cook’s new tabletop RPG setting, Numenera.
The key features of this new Torment game are:
-Torment is a single-player, isometric role-playing game.
-You will play a single, specific character, though you will encounter optional NPC companions you may choose to include in your party.
-The story-driven game will have a rich dialogue system.
-The game will be developed in the Unity engine for PC (Windows), Mac, and Linux platforms.
-The game will be available in English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish.
-The game will be distributed DRM-free. (You’ll be able to get it from Steam, and other DRM-free download options will be made available.)
Torment: Tides of Numenera is planned for a 2015 release on the PC.
Enjoy and congratulations to inXile and Brian Fargo!
