Torment: Tides Of Numenera Kickstarter Begins March 6
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

inXile Entertainment has announced that a Kickstarter campaign will begin on March 6 for Torment: Tides of Numenera, a spiritual successor to the classic Planescape: Torment fantasy RPG. Set in the world of Monte Cook's Numenara role playing setting, the game will focus on the elements "that made people appreciate PST so much."

Here's some info about the game from IGN:

Players will build their own character using an adaptation of the Numenera tabletop rules, which include three different class types: the warrior-like Glaive, the wizard-esque Nanos, or hybrid types called Jacks (as in ‘of all trades’). According to the tabletop game, Glaives can come light or heavy depending on your preference between speed and strength. Nanos harness the Numenera to work miracles, which are called Esoteries. Jacks have a lot of tricks that make them good at many things, but masters of none.

There will also be two sets of modifiers: descriptors and focus, which will grant bonuses in a variety of categories. Some descriptors (again, from the tabletop game) are Clever, Tough, Strongwilled or Mystical. Focus varies from crafting illusions to becoming a master of a single weapon.

Saunders explains it like this: “You are this specific character, but we will give you flexibility in terms of what class and descriptors and focus that you have. That will evolve throughout the game.”
