At long last, Torment: Tides of Numenera is out, and we're super excited about the game and the reception it's been getting. Torment has been reviewed scores of times, and the reviews are glowing. Check out just a bit of what we've been hearing:
“I can’t think of a single RPG in the last decade that so consistently surprised and delighted me.”
“One of the new landmarks of the genre.”
“Could be the best CRPG of this era.”
“Amazing writing, an interesting yet gritty world to explore and a charming set of characters.”
“The writing is nothing short of exemplary, and the execution is near flawless.”
“Like the way that the Ninth World rises from the ashes of other civilizations, Torment: Tides of Numenera is a layered experience. For role-players keen on experiencing a game of consequences and twisted fantasy, it’s well worth the adventure.”
Like what you’re hearing? You can find a roundup of several dozen reviews here. Torment: Tides of Numenera is on Steam for Mac, PC, and Linux, and is also available for Xbox One and PS4.
If you’ve been playing Torment and want to learn a bit more about Greater Garravia and Sagus Cliffs, or if you’re curious about the part of the Ninth World (to the east of the Steadfast and the Beyond) in which the game is set—or if you just want to add some cool new material to your Numenera campaign, don’t forget about Torment: Tides of Numenera—the Explorer’s Guide. It’s a 160-page hardcover sourcebook that expands upon the weird and fascinating places, people, and creatures first glimpsed in Torment. Discover secrets of the computer game, and explore its world in greater depth and detail. Incorporate the region and its inhabitants and conflicts, in whole or in part, into your campaign. Maybe even become a castoff or explore the Tides, mysterious forces that can shape human interactions.
A Strange Box
While this isn’t precisely Numenera-related, we thought you might like to hear about A Strange Box. We’re currently Kickstarting a boxed set for The Strange with the intent of filling it full of as much amazing coolness as the Exclusive Numenera Boxed Set Edition. The Numenera box was perhaps the most awesome RPG boxed set of all time, but we’re hoping to match it with A Strange Box. The Kickstarter runs for the next week and a half, so don’t miss it.
(If you haven’t tried The Strange—or if you have just a few of the books—there’s an incredible deal on the entire game line in PDF as part of the LIBRARY OF IMPOSSIBLE THINGS backer level. Check it out!)
