Chris Avellone becomes a Torment stretch goal

What would make Torment: Tides of Numenera, which recently smashed its Kickstarter goal in seven hours, a more scintillating prospect? How about the lead designer of its thematic predecessor, Planescape: Torment, th...

InXile talks Torment, story details, and crowd-funding

Twelve years ago, Black Isle Studios crafted a plane-hopping, tragic adventure set in the Planescape Dungeons & Dragons setting. With a nameless, amnesiac protagonist who had been both a hero and a villain, the developer ...

Torment reaches its Kickstarter goal in less than a day
by Fraser Brown

InXile's newest roleplaying game and spiritual successor to Planescape: Torment, Torment: Tides of Numenera, has been seeking funding on Kickstarter for well under a day. After three hours, it had already secured half of its $900,000 goal. It's now fully backed. 

Sitting pretty at $935,000 at the time of writing this (and likely a whole lot more when you start reading), I think anyone wondering if people really care about Planescape: Torment any more have their answer. I suspect that the project won't struggle to reach its stretch goals either, meaning that the extra writers and art that inXile mentioned desiring will become a reality.

I spoke with Kevin Saunders and Colin McComb from inXile a day ago about the project and their experiences with Kickstarter, so keep an eye out for that later today. They were cautiously optimistic about the potential success of their latest crowd-funding attempt, and now they're probably feeling pretty damn good.

So, who has backed this thing already?

Planescape: Torment spiritual successor gets a name

Planescape: Torment is, for me, the pinnacle of videogame roleplaying experiences. It managed to make boring stats meaningful by putting them to use outside of combat constantly, its story and dialogue blow even Baldur's Gate...

Review: Choplifter HD
by Maurice Tan

There has been a fair share of '80s arcade titles that made the transition to the current generation. From Pac-Man: CE to Galaga Legions, the downloadable platforms have become a haven for games that try to capture that nostalgia of old in a flashy new skin.

Choplifter HD takes Choplifter to the Unreal Engine 3 era with an update in visuals and gameplay depth alike. And just like the original, it's definitely not for the faint of heart.
