And it’s looking good. Now that Wasteland 2 is out, hopefully we’ll be seeing more of Tides of Numenera. They definitely nailed the crazy, magicy-science Planescape feel. Those conversation trees are in full bloom as well.
Last month, InXile Entertainment launched a Kickstarter Campaign to develop Torment: Tides of Numenera. It’s the spiritual successor of Planescape: Torment which happens to be one of my favorite RPG’s and quite possibly one of the best written games of all time. I’m not the only one excited about this either. Torment: Tides of Numenera currently holds the record for the fastest approved project. In only 6 hours they reached their $900,000 goal. As of today, 74,405 backers have pledged over 4 million dollars. InXile has added 19 Stretch goals to meet the continuing donations to the project. Wow.
