Torment: Tides of Numenera developer inXile Entertainment has dated its spiritual successor to Planescape: Torment for December next year.
A few weeks ago we reported that the project is being crowd-funded on Kickstarter.
Gamespot has reported on the game’s unveiling, and has added that the game is planned for a December 2014 release.
It has an intriguing premise:
“Numenera’s Ninth World is a fantastic vision of a world in which massive civilizations have risen and fallen – disappeared, transcended, overwhelmed, or destroyed – and left their cities, monuments, and artifacts behind.
“As each rose and fell, their achievements became part of the accumulated detritus of eons… but much of it did not decay. And now this assortment of ancient power is there for the taking, ever-present, underfoot.
“The humans of the Ninth World take and use what they can. They call these wonders (and horrors) the numenera.”
While the Kickstarter page has yet to open, the game’s site has been live for a while.
We’ll have more as it happens.
Are you excited for this one?
