The Humble Unity Bundle contains some great stories, and the tools to tell your own

While it still bears some reputation as a scrappy little browser-game toolset (and that's no bad thing - it enabled much of the GMTK 2018 jam recently), ubiquitous game development platform Unity has spread to all corners. While I don't have a single creative bone in my body, the Humble Unity Bundle contains a pile of Unity tools and assets to build your dream game. Even…

Torment: Tides of Numenera trailer sets up the story

I get that Torment: Tides of Numenera [official site] is going for a Planescape: Torment-y talk-o-thinky vibe in a future so far-flung that ancient technology is basically magic, but I didn't know much about the story. Turns out, as a new trailer explains, oh yes it us riffing on Torment-ish themes of immortality and past selves and fates catching up and... hey, see for yourself…

Torment: Tides of Numenera addresses stretch goal cuts

With Torment: Tides of Numenera [official site] out later this month, developers inXile Entertainment have addressed complaints that some features billed in the RPG's crowdfunding campaign won't appear as expected. Some of these changes sound for the better, inXile following paths that they thought more Tormentous rather than ticking stretch goal boxes. Some, like ditching the Italian localisation, are more of a bummer. Crowdfunding campaign…

Torment: Tides of Numenera trailer is ready to rumble

Torment: Tides of Numenera [official site] and the game which inspired it might prize frank exchanges of views above fisticuffs but sometimes one holds views such as "I believe splitting your lip would make me feel better" and, well, that can escalate. With the release of Torment now only five weeks away, a new trailer is out to demonstrate what happens when such views are…

Torment: Tides of Numenera interactive trailer posts questy questions

Torment: Tides of Numenera [official site] will pose such intriguing questions as "What's in a monster's guts?" and "How badly do you want to know what is in a monster's guts?" That's the lesson I'm taking away from a new 'interactive' trailer for Torment, which shows the possible paths through one simple quest in inXile's upcoming Planescape-y RPG. That may be the lesson you take…

Torment: Tides of Numenera release date announced

When you receive a 'Great Horses of the Isle of Wight 2017' calendar from your uncle this holiday season, tear it open, flip to February, break out your spiffy new glitter gel pens, and write "NEW TORMENT!!!" on February 28th. That's the newly-announced release date for Torment: Tides of Numenera [official site], inXile's "spiritual successor" to the venerable Planescape: Torment. That means a weird fantasy-ish…

Plane To See: The World Of Torment: Tides Of Numenera

I ain't looked too close at Torment: Tides of Nutella [official site], even despite having its alpha installed on my PC, because if I'm gonna do this thing, I want to do it cold and I want to do it complete. But lately I realised that I knew barely a thing about inXile's spiritual sequel to revered-by-the-sort-of-people-who-revere-cRPGs cRPG Planescape: Torment, and had nothing more than…

Inxile Force One-Man Studio To Change Game Name

Goshdarnit, inXile, not you too. You were the ones who gave the people the elaborate, old-school, spiritual-sequel RPGs they'd long desired, not the ones who chased down unrelated games with vaguely similar names to their own. I know, I know: absurd legal complexities mean that sometimes firms are forced to strong-arm other firms into changing the names of things, otherwise they risk losing their long-held…

A Tides Of Numenera Beta Date For Backers & Steamfolk

We already knew that a beta for Torment: Tides of Gary Numan [official site], spiritual* sequel to Planescape: Torment was due this month, but now we have a date. Or, to be precise, dates. Another thing we already knew is that original Kickstarter backers of the inXile RPG would get their clammy crowdfunding paws on the beta, but now we know that it'll update its…

Torment Numenera Beta Inbound; Devs Open New Studio

News that inXile's spiritual Planescape sequel Torment: Tides of New Model Army [official site] won't, in fact, release its first beta during 2015 comes as little surprise, given there are only four and half minutes left of this year. Even so, it's good to have confirmation that a sizeable chunk of the soul-searching RPG will be with us "early next year", with the delay in…

Torment: Tides Of Numenera Coming In 2016

Torment: Tides of Numenera [official site] has never been given a firm release date, though vague, smooshy plans have bounced the RPG from December 2014 to the first half of 2015, then the final quarter of 2015, and, now, into 2016. Developers inXile Entertainment have announced that they're looking at next year for their crowdfunded spiritual successor to Planescape: Torment, as they want to, you…

Revving Up: InXile Expand, File Autoduel Trademark

Even with Wasteland 2's enhanced edition [official site] in the bag, RPG revivalists inXile Entertainment still have a couple of irons in the fire. There's the not insignificant matter of Torment: Tides of Numenera, which began as one of the most successful gaming Kickstarters ever, and the recently announced The Bard's Tale as well. The company is expanding, with a New Orleans satellite studio set…

Watch This Torment: Tides Of Numenera Crisis Footage

The Numenera pen-and-paper roleplaying system does a lot of interesting things to simplify stats, combat, and to offer players more choice in action and outcome. I am extremely interested to see how those systems translate to Torment: Tides of Numenera [official site], which is using the setting and system as a basis for a spiritual successor to the beloved Planescape: Torment. The first chance to…
