- genre: RPG
- developer: inXile entertainment
- platform: PC
Torment: Tides of Numenera is a role-playing game designed as a spiritual successor to the iconic Planescape: Torment. Product was developed by inXile studio, famous for Wasteland 2. Action is set on Earth in the distant future, billions of years from now and shows the world that combines elements of fantasy and science fiction. Most of our planet's inhabitants live in more or less medieval conditions, but at the same time they are surrounded by remnants of the former, more advanced civilizations. Some of these relics of the past (titular numenera) are useful in transport, communications, and defense. Others, in turn, pose a deadly threat.
The game was implemented with a very extensive system of moral choices reflected by the so-called Waves that affect the world around us, statistics of the items we find, or the reactions of NPCs encountered while adventuring. The story will have a predetermined protagonist, but players will be able to choose sex, class, and to freely develop his or her skills.
Combat employs a turn-based system. With the progress of the story our heroes gain experience points, which can be spent to develop their skills.
The game is powered by the Unity graphics engine and the whole game is presented in an isometric view (2D) although it uses also pre-rendered backgrounds.
