Four years after it was successfully funded on Kickstarter, Torment: Tides of Numenera is finally out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. There’s even an official launch trailer in case you don’t believe me for some reason.
The spiritual successor to Black Isle’s Planescape: Torment was developed by inXile Entertainment, and raised $4,188,927 on Kickstarter (it’s still the third most funded video game on the site). A second crowdfunding campaign raised a bit less than $1 million, but it was enough for the game’s budge to surpass $5 million.
If you’re one of the backers, now you can finally see if the wait and money were worth it. From the looks of things I’d say that they were, but let’s wait for our official review to be sure.
Torment: Tides of Numenera is too weird to try and explain, but it involves an immortal demigod who found a way to shift his consciousness to a new body at will. Unbeknownst to him, every body he leaves behind develops a new consciousness of its own. You play as one such body, as you try to survive in the Ninth World and track down the Changing God before a group called The Sorrow destroys you both. See, I told you it’s weird.
