Briefly: The Planescape: Torment successor Torment: Tides of Numenera will enter Steam Early Access on January 26, the developers said in the most recent backer update. This will be a beta release; still no word on the final release date.
Planescape Torment is widely lauded as one of the best-written (not to mention weirdest) games of all time. It’s so revered that the Kickstarter for its spiritual successor, Torment: Tides of Numenera, raked in a whopping $US4.1 million. How’s it shaping up, though? Now, finally, you can see.
Perhaps you remember Planescape: Torment, a wonderful roleplaying game that set a new bar for video game narrative when it was released back in the late ’90s. Even today, very few games weave stories as intricate and fascinating as Black Isle’s masterpiece.
