Torment: Tides of Numenera is now the most successful Kickstarter game ever

Torment: Tides of Numenera

Torment: Tides of Numenera is a story-driven RPG set in the world of Monte Cook’s Numenera and it’s considered by most the spiritual successor to Planescape Torment. This indie game set a new record on Kickstarter, scoring the highest amount of money raised by a game: $4,188,927

That’s quite a lot. Obviously the game was fully funded (from its starting goal of $900k) and it will be released somewhere between 2013 and 2014.

But what is exactly Torment: Tides of Numenera? Well, its creators said that they’re striving to create a rich role-playing experience that explores deep and personal themes. But here’s the scoop:

  • Torment is a single-player, isometric role-playing game.
  • You will play a single, specific character, though you will encounter optional NPC companions you may choose to include in your party.
  • The story-driven game will have a rich dialogue system.
  • The game will be developed in the Unity engine for PC (Windows)Mac, and Linuxplatforms.
  • The game will be available in EnglishFrenchGermanItalianPolishRussian,Spanish.
  • The game will be distributed DRM-free. (You’ll be able to get it from Steam, and other DRM-free download options will be made available.)

Said so, we’re really looking forward to know more about this game, but for now enjoy these video-screenshots.
