The announcement was accompanied by a new trailer, which you can watch above.
Never heard of Torment: Tides of Numenera? Well lucky you — here is an official description/overview:
“Torment: Tides of Numenera is a thematic successor to Planescape: Torment, one of the greatest computer RPGs ever created. The new game explores similar deep and personal themes of life, mortality, and sacrifice, challenging players to take intellectual stances and make moral decisions.”
“Explore Earth one billion years in the future in the science-fantasy setting of Numenera. Discover the Ninth World built on the bones of eight advanced civilizations and leave your own mark on it. Make thousands of essential choices, face the consequences, and meet death incarnated as you seek the answer to the ultimate question: What does one life matter?”
Torment: Tides of Numenera is due to release sometime in the first quarter of 2017.
A top-down classic RPG from the guys who made Wasteland 2? Sounds like my jam. And 80 hours of my life gone.
