Torment: Tides of Numenera

This successor in name only to Planescape: Torment will take place in Monte Cook's Numenera, which was Kickstarted with a huge success in 2012. As the planescape universe can not be used, none of its characters will make an appearance either.

Numenera is set a billion years in the future. Civilizations have risen and fallen on Earth. Even though the current inhabitants live at about a Medieval level of technology, the leftover remnants of these advanced societies lie all around them. Some of these are extremely helpful: advanced tools, valuable means of communication and learning, transportation, defenses, and weapons. Others are dangerous: genetically altered monstrosities, flesh-warping radiation, creatures transplanted from distant stars, and clouds of out-of-control nanobots, just to name a few. This setting, called the Ninth World, provides all manner of opportunities and challenges to those that call it home.

Torment: Tides of Numenera is a single-player, isometric, narrative-driven role-playing game. It offers over a million words of story, along with exploration in a beautifully rendered world and innovative turn-based combat.
