Torment: Tides Of Numenera Announced On Kickstarter
Posted , 6 March 2013 at 6:34 pm UTC / 5588 views
Torment: Tides of Numenera can be seen as the follow-up of the legendary Planescape: Torment (which I started a week ago in Wine again), it's developed by inXile who are also working on their Wasteland 2 kickstarter.

Like Wasteland 2 this will also use the Unity engine, so Linux support is confirmed from the get go.
  • Torment is a single-player, isometric role-playing game.
  • You will play a single, specific character, though you will encounter optional NPC companions you may choose to include in your party.
  • The story-driven game will have a rich dialogue system and approach similar to that of Planescape: Torment.
  • The game will be developed in the Unity engine for PC (Windows), Mac, and Linux platforms.
  • The game will be available in English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish.
  • The game will be distributed DRM-free. (You’ll be able to get it from Steam, and other DRM-free download options will be made available.)

indeed, this this will become the biggest kickstarter in 1 day ever, more exited about this then any of the others I funded so far.

Chris Taylor comment about Kickstarter Fatique is sort of blown out of the water by this.  Still sad they did not make it,  GPG deserved better.

It's sad as I used to love Chris Taylor when he worked on Total Annihilation & Supreme Commander 1, when it go to Supreme Commander 2 I lost a lot of love for him.

Thankfully we have uber and Planetary Annihilation coming this year

Those replaying Planescape: Torment in Wine might be interested in checking out GemRB, an open-source re-implementation of Bioware's Infinity Engine on which the game was written.  Like ScummVM, it lets you play these games natively
