Torment: Tides of Numenera

Well, with Wasteland 2 pretty much done, you would figure it was time we heard more about inXile‘s other big crowdfunded game, Torment: Tides of Numenera. The highest-funded game in Kickstarter history (though still behind overall number-one Star Citizen) has a new video showing off some pre-alpha footage of the game. Check it out.

As you can see, Torment: Tides of Numenera is still in a pre-alpha state. However, if it keeps to a similar schedule as Wasteland 2, we should expect alpha tests to start around December and a full release in the last half of 2015. You can learn more about the game by checking out its new website.

Torment: Tides of Numenera is the spiritual successor to the critically acclaimed Dungeons & Dragons game Planescape: Torment. It is based on the Numenera science-fantasy tabletop RPG created by Monte Cook — it should also be noted that this is the first game based on this setting. While ideas for the game were always in mind, it wasn’t until recently that it really came to fruition. In March 2013, the game launched a Kickstarter campaign, which would go on to raise over $4 million, setting a record for the crowdfunding service.
