Newport Beach, California – January 26, 2016 – inXile Entertainment’s Torment: Tides of Numenera, the long-awaited thematic successor to Planescape: Torment, is now available to a general audience on Steam Early Access!
Having raised over $5 million from more than 90,000 pledges, Torment sits in the top 5 most funded Kickstarter projects of all time. Torment: Tides of Numenera is a story-driven, isometric cRPG in the style of the legendary Infinity Engine games. With carefully crafted writing and a beautifully detailed combination of 2D and 3D graphics, Torment is a masterpiece that evokes the spirit of the critically acclaimed original cult classic. Now, the title comes to Steam Early Access, which allows inXile to continue to work with the community in order to improve the game before its final release.
Involving many of the original creators of Planescape: Torment, such as Chris Avellone, Colin McComb and Mark Morgan, Torment tells a deep and emotional story set in Monte Cook’s unique Ninth World from the new award-winning Numenera pen and paper game. Explore a world unlike any other to find your answer to the question “What does one life matter?”
“Torment is a game we couldn’t be more excited about,” says Brian Fargo, CEO. “Our fans have placed their trust in us to deliver an experience that lives up to their expectations, and as we did with Wasteland 2, we intend to work with them to deliver it. We take the Early Access program as a very serious step for us to improve the game based on the community’s feedback. Iteration is paramount to me and this helps to guide us putting our efforts into crafting a game worthy of the Torment name.”
