    The long journey that began sometime in late 2012 ended this morning with the release of Torment: Tides of Numenera, inXile's Planescape: Torment thematic successor and their second game of the crowdfunding era. For the Codex, it's been a tumultuous journey indeed. For a long time, Torment was our most anticipated title by far, buoyed by our faith in its development team, veterans of both Planescape: Torment (Colin McComb, Adam Heine) and its quasi-successor Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer (Kevin Saunders, George Ziets). Their lengthy and ambitious Kickstarter updates excited our imaginations.

    Yet as development dragged on and on, that faith grew brittle. And when the blows came, it began to crack. The mysterious departure of game director Kevin Saunders. The partnership with Polish publisher Techland. The announcement of a multiplatform release. The late discovery of cut stretch goal content. Above all, the capricious and wholly unjustified cancellation of our Gamescom interview. All of these things have led to a release day fraught with cynicism and trepidation. It didn't have to be this way, and I hope to discover one day why it was.

    But as for today, Torment is finally here. Here's its launch trailer:


    I'll be updating this post with a list of release day reviews. The game is reviewing rather well, with an average score in the mid-80s. Most of the less positive reviews are PS4 reviews complaining about performance issues. And then there's that Greek review which, uh, well, you'll see.

    Torment: Tides of Numenera is available now on Steam and GOG for $45. Hopefully our review (or reviews) won't be a long time coming.

    Played it for an hour already, seems promising, and the writing is tamed but still takes itself seriously. Also really like the dialog tree structures. They're not as extensive as Tyranny's, but I think it helps the dialogs stay more concise.
    Of course one hour of gameplay is basically the intro :P It's only after you're done with that that you can save.

    That said, if you skip all the reading, it's only like 3 minutes.

    You're likely to get a Prime Junta review that says that, but I guess that wouldn't be the same. :P

    I like the part where he's potentially calling some of his own readers "autistic orcs". :P

    The game is an unmitigated disaster, a travesty and an offence to me and my family.

    6/10.



    I guess angry Greek journalism is still journalism.

    A lot of those positive reviews are from posers trying to get some rpg creed for having played a game with a lot of text... disgusting.

    That's my only gripe so far, it took over an hour to get to a point where I could save. Aside from that, very interesting and smooth game.

    I expected it to trend higher based on what I had seen and heard of the game so far... but there is buzz, and then there is the game itself.

    I thought all classic CRPG fans were autistic orcs? Autistic orcs with neckbeards? I dunno.

    And many of the negative ones are from people trying to prove how much better their understanding of the genre is. Like that edgy Greek fellow who seems to mainly be upset his Nameless One waifu pillow will ignore him now that he played another game called Torment.

    As I suspected, the Numegaya setting helps make things quite worse. What a stupid piece of shit this system was. Everyone I knew who tried it stopped playing it after 2-3 times.
