The “news” in the strictest sense of the term is that “Torment: Tides of Numenera” has a new website, complete with a piece of concept art, a plot summary, and a registration process for you long-suffering “Torment” fans to get into the forums and make suggestions for developer inXile’s inevitable crowdfunding campaign.
The bigger news, however, is that a sequel (of sorts) to Black Isle’s seminal “Planescape: Torment” exists at all.
Black Isle was shuttered back in 2003 as a result of publisher Interplay’s financial woes, though it was eventually revived last year. “Planescape: Torment” is, as its name implies, based on the Wizards of the Coast-published Planescape campaign for Advanced Dugeons & Dragons. Between Black Isle’s closure and Wizards guarding the Planescape license, another “Torment” game in that universe is unlikely to ever happen. Ex-Black Isle staffers moved on to Obsidian, and the games industry trudged inexorably forward. »
