Well, no it's not a direct sequel to PS:T but it's the sequel in everything that matters. The feeling, the writing and the setting are very similar. inXile hasn't claimed it was a sequel either, merely a continuation on what made Torment what it was. Name recognition goes a long way with getting a project like this funded. It's not like they picked up the name and are just cashing in, Fargo brought the old (writing) team back together to make this.

I think they're doing the right thing, with the Planescape setting not available anyway they're emphasizing the Torment part which is what made the original a great game. Personally, I couldn't give a hoot about the Planescape setting, I'd never heard of it before or after the first Torment. It was the writing and mature approach to gameplay that made the original so great, not the setting.
