Lots of Torment: Tides of Numenera updates today. The official site received a makeover, the first video showing gameplay was released (and can be seen below), and the developers put out a call for more funds.
The footage below shows off several locations, dialog and a startling encounter with a monster:
The developers also hope to raise the total funding level to $US4.75 (it's $US4.6 as of this moment) in order to add an additional location to the game:
This area would add a ton to the Bloom, particularly as it provides more adventure-type gameplay and will better balance out its pacing. But currently we think we're already stretching our team with the areas we've already committed to. With our limited stretch goals, we'll be looking to raise enough money to commit to adding the Gullet to the Bloom, by bolstering our environment art team to both make the Gullet and to benefit all other locations as well — remember that all pledges support the game development and reaching the Stretch Goal in reality gives far more than just the Gullet.
Of course, we have to make the call so that we can plan ahead, so our time is limited too: we're looking to raise our total amount raised to $US4.75M by October 16th!
