First Glimpse: Torment: Tides of Numenera

Torment: Tides of Numenera, the Kickstarter funded spiritual successor to Planescape: Torment (with over $4 million pledged), is a story-driven RPG in which combat takes a backseat to character development. With a 2.5D isometric viewpoint, Monte Cook’s Numenera ruleset meticulously adapted, and names like Brian Fargo (producer), Colin McComb (writer) and Mark Morgan (composer) attached to the project, there’s a lot to get excited about. And earlier today, inXile released 3 minutes of glorious pre-alpha footage.

Watch the short narrative-focused trailer below, and let us know how excited you are on a scale of 1 (really excited) to 10 (really excited).
