New "Torment" CRPG Announced!

Brian Fargo is leveraging Kickstarter once again, this time to bring you another CRPG from the Planescape:Torment team. Same writers, same composer, same detailed vision. It'll be released DRM-free and on SteamPlay, so all is good for Mac, Linux, and Windows.



Here's the link:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...es-of-numenera

Good times!

UPDATE: Well, if you're interested in another Planescape, it's going to happen. The $900,000 Kickstarter requirement has just been passed, just 7 hours in to the campaign, with over 30 days of funding remaining. w00t!

Planescape: Torment is definitely one of the best games I have ever played and it looks like they are going to bring it to the next level in this one.

I say, support the masterpiece!

My favourite game of all time, great!

Do you know if it's based on the planescape setting?

Ah, I see it isn't, pity... I love planescape; then again, Monte Cooke's ideas sound interesting. Hopefully it'll have the anarchic humour of planescape.

Backed this for $35. Really interested to see the digital art concept book!

That's the level I pledged at too. Mark Morgan is a genius at composing moving, atmospheric soundtracks, and I'm looking forward to the soundtrack for this game. When I was playing Planescape back in the day, I would boot the game just to have that music playing.

Update for those interested: The project is funded, well into the stretch goals, promising for a very big, absorbing game. The project is sitting at just over $2M in pledges at 2 days in!
