Torment: Tides of Numenera
Torment: Tides of Numenera is a game set in the world of Monte Cook's new tabletop RPG setting: Numenera. Torment continues the thematic legacy of Planescape: Torment, the critically acclaimed role-playing game from 1999 that's considered by many to be a hallmark for storytelling in computer RPGs. With Torment, we're creating a rich role-playing experience that explores similar deep personal themes using the following "Four Pillars" design:
- A Deep, Thematically Satisfying Story. The philosophical underpinnings of Torment drive the game, both mechanically and narratively. Your words, choices, and actions will be your primary weapons.
- A World Unlike Any Other. The game has a fantastic, original setting, with awe-inspiring painterly visuals, imaginative locations, truly offbeat items, and massive feats of magic. In Numenera, however, “magic” is actually something surprisingly different.
- A Rich, Personal Narrative. The story is thoughtful and character-driven—epic in feel but a deeply personal narrative, with nontraditional characters and companions who have their own motivations and desires that drive them throughout the game.
- Reactivity, Choice, and Real Consequences. The game emphasizes replayability and reactivity, and your choices will make a real difference. You can play the game with a different approach and discover entirely new pathways. Most important, we won't tell you how to play. The best ending is the one you choose, flowing naturally from your actions throughout the game.
tl;dr: New content coming to Torment, rewards status update, and THANK YOU!

A philosophical role playing game in which the tired and out-dated moral alignment systems of western RPGs have been replaced with a more nuanced approach; it brandishes a beautifully realised game-world full of intricate details and exquisite oddities. All backed up by some absolutely stellar writing t...
Just as quick post for everyone today - we recently got some photos of our backer physical goods from Techland, and we couldn't wait for a full Kickstarter update to share them.
