Say hello to Torment: Tides of Numenera.
While Double Fine started it all, I’m ready to crown inXile as the undisputed Kickstarter champions. Their new project, Torment: Tides of Numenera, smashed its $900,000 goal in well under a day.
After successfully funding Wasteland 2, inXile are teaming up with Monte Cook, creator of the tabletop game world, Numenera, to deliver what they’re calling a “spiritual successor” to the hugely popular Planescape: Torment.
“As we continue our progression toward launch of Wasteland 2, it is important to secure funding now in order to cover the costs of preproduction and to properly scope Torment: Tides of Numenera. This method of development helps to both create a better a RPG game and to keep the winning team together from project to project. The crowd has become our financing partner and we embrace the stronger bond that it creates between us” said Brian Fargo, CEO of inXile Entertainment.
Tides of Numenera will be a single player RPG that follows the same story driven themes, and ambiguous moral decisions, that made Planescape Torment so famous. You can visit the Tides of Numenera Kickstarter page here, and check out the video introduction below:
