Torment: Tides of Numenera

A classic PC role-playing game for the modern era, the downloadable Torment: Tides of Numenera is reminiscent of the Baldur’s Gate series in its execution of serious high fantasy concepts and deep, complex gameplay. Developed by inXile Entertainment and released in 2017, Torment: Tides of Numenera is a spiritual successor to the 1999 title Planescape: Torment, itself a classic of the 1990s style PC role playing game. It is available not only for Windows-based PCs but also for Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Linux and OSX machines.

The focus in Torment: Tides of Numenera is on a deep, engaging story that puts combat and loot on a secondary footing to the singular importance of exploring the in-game world and discovering your place within it. Funded by a Kickstarter campaign, Torment: Tides of Numenera uses the Unity engine for an isometric perspective that offers crisp, clear graphics and a detailed world. Of course, even though the narrative is a huge focus of the game, that doesn’t mean it isn’t without combat elements and the need to strategize in that regard.

Torment: Tides of Numenera Review

There are classes and specializations in the game and these are important but, again, a lot of the magic of Torment: Tides of Numenera is in how it tells the story. And towards this end, the devs have implemented a detailed and complex dialogue tree that gives players a huge amount of choice when it comes to how to interact with in-game characters.

Non-player characters are not only terribly interesting but also distracting. Players will find themselves wasting tons of time exploring the world of Torment: Tides of Numenera to the exclusion of combat and anything productive.

It is this resurrection of a classic element of 1990s PC role-playing games – that of a fantasy novel – that makes Torment: Tides of Numenera such a modern classic. PC role-playing games in the 1990s distinguished themselves from their home console counterparts through the implementation of complex plots and deep systems of lore.

Torment: Tides of Numenera not only takes this and runs with it but does it better than many modern devs could even dream of doing. Funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign, it is no shock that Torment: Tides of Numenera is able to cater to a niche but everyone benefits in the end.

Gamers that enjoy rich, traditional RPG combat with a huge world to explore and learn about should pick up Torment: Tides of Numenera as soon as they get a chance. Not only is this type of game not made anymore but also few titles of its touchstone era did it as well as Torment: Tides of Numenera does. Graphics to sound to narrative to gameplay – everything in Torment: Tides of Numenera combines for an awesome experience that is as unforgettable as the story the game tells.
