Torment: Tides Of Numenera - Combat, Storyline, And More
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

inXile Entertainment recently posted another update to its Kickstarter campaign for Torment: Tides of Numenera, a spiritual successor to the classic Planescape: Torment fantasy RPG. The post offers a status update on the progress of the game including details about early combat design and developing the storyline.

We致e thought a bit about how we値l approach the combat discussion when the time comes. We are planning a staged approach over a period of a few weeks. First, we値l present the high level designs for the systems we think would work best for Torment based upon all of the other design work we値l have done by then. We値l then create a separate, backer-only Combat forum on User Voice for the topic to be discussed. A bit later, we値l open up 砺oting on this forum thereby giving everyone who is interested some time to read and think about the approaches, as well as the ideas and comments of other backers, before weighing in numerically. We値l leave the forum open until any debate has stabilized - we don稚 expect there to be complete consensus, but after some time the major points will have been made and we値l have enough information to make our decision.

Some of you have expressed concern that a popular vote could override our judgment and lead to an inferior game. This is a valid concern, but we池e not going to let this happen. First, we池e not going to present any option that we feel would be tragic for Torment. Second, we won稚 blindly look at the numbers and decide based on those. Ultimately, we値l take everyone痴 comments and ideas into account and make the decision that we feel will be best for the game. But, again, this will be some time in the future after we have fleshed out enough of the more pressing design topics to give combat the thorough attention it deserves.
