They said it couldn’t be done. We’re still not sure how it was done, but we called it. One of the most infamously impossible to release games of all time is now available to play on modern PCs. Good Old Games are probably forgiven all their recent naughty doings by securing one of the finest RPGs of all time, Planescape: Torment. It’s $9.95, and just over a GB to download from their re-launched website. Unless you managed to get the mysteriously released boxed copy from Amazon last year (which was a completely unpatched version), this is the first chance to get the classic RPG in many years. We’re chasing GoG for more details about how they secured this, and check out Kieron’s superb retrospective of the game. Also, take a look at Alec’s guide for getting the game to run in enormous widescreen-o-vision. Planescape’s back!
