Torment: Tides of Numenera [official site] was the highest-funded video game at the time of its Kickstarter, and although its missed its release date more than once, things are looking on track for an early 2017 release as it progresses through early access. A recent trailer for Torment focuses on the Nano Class, which utilizes ancient technology to achieve feats that appear like magic.
If you choose the Nano Class, your version of the Last Castoff will be able to utilize their higher intellect to perform a score of feats. You’ll be able to access more strategic, non-combat options as your ability to think yourself through situations will lead to the capacity to outwit your enemies. If you’re forced into combat, you can call on numenera, artifacts of ancient fallen civilizations, to attack your foes from afar. You’ll also be able to summon ethereal creatures to aid you in your struggles.
Torment: Tides of Numenera is being made by inXile Entertainment and published by Techland. Although a firm release date hasn’t been set yet, Torment should be released in early 2017 on Windows, Mac, and Linux. We last looked at it way back in January.
