Preview - posted by Infinitron on Thu 14 January 2016, 17:12:11Tags: Adam Heine; Chris Keenan; InXile Entertainment; Mark Morgan; Torment: Tides of Numenera
With the Torment: Tides of Numenera beta due for release in just three days, inXile have published a new Kickstarter update to ramp up the hype. There's no major new information here, just some goodies - a music track by Mark Morgan, which is evidently the main background music for the city of Sagus Cliffs, and a screenshot of Circus Minor, an area within that same city, along with a description by Adam Heine. Check 'em out:
New Music Track - Sagus Cliffs Exterior
Our collaboration with Mark has produced some amazing music which maintains, but also matures the spirit of Torment, and today we want to debut a brand-new song from him, which you will hear as you explore the exterior environments of Sagus Cliffs.
A Look at Circus Minor
Adam here. As we mentioned in our last update, the city of Sagus Cliffs is divided up into districts. The first one that you will come across is called Circus Minor.
Circus Minor is the vibrant heart of Sagus Cliffs, a bustling combination of festival and marketplace. When public events (or executions) are held, they always take place among the crowds and merchant stalls for all to see. Circus Minor is essentially a middle-class district, but all the classes mingle here, along with artists, performers, visitants, and other strange characters.
Circus Minor is a lively place, with merchant stalls, tents and caravans lining its streets, and banners floating in the breeze above. Greenery is more commonplace here than in the other districts.
Yet there is mystery to be found. Pieces of ancient numenera jutting out from the ground are decorated and repurposed by the inhabitants. Some serve as streetlights, others have been turned to other uses, but the original functions of all these ancient constructions are now long-forgotten. And all of these are dominated by the Clock, a giant numenera artifact towering above the district, endlessly ticking away, existing within different dimensions and time periods simultaneously.
Circus Minor serves as an introduction to Sagus Cliffs, and as such, it is a relatively non-hostile place, with many interesting characters to speak to and strange and wonderful things to find. Many important quests and details about the world can be found here, and the Last Castoff will return to it plenty of times while exploring Sagus Cliffs' other districts.
