    inXile and Techland have released a new "story trailer" for Torment: Tides of Numenera, that tells the origin story of the Changing God and the Castoffs. It's really quite nice - a cut above the usual Techland trailers, which makes me wonder if it's not the work of some third party. Some might find the trailer inappropriately spoilery, although there's little in it that won't be familiar to somebody who's followed the game's development closely. Here it is, along with the accompanying press release:



    Wroclaw, Poland – February 9, 2017 – inXile Entertainment and Techland Publishing revealed today the latest trailer for their upcoming, highly-anticipated science-fantasy RPG Torment: Tides of Numenera, the thematic successor to one of the most critically revered and in-depth CRPGs of all time.

    This epic cinematic story trailer recounts the lore leading up to the very moment that players begin their odyssey as the Last Castoff – the flesh-and-blood by-product of a megalomaniacal deity known as the Changing God.

    A billion years in the future a man discovered a way to cheat death. A seeker of knowledge and wisdom, his ultimate goal was to leave an unforgettable mark on the world. In his quest for everlasting legacy, he discovered ancient technology – the Numenera – that allowed him to transfer his consciousness to a body of his own design. Thus he became known as the Changing God.

    In a bid to escape death, the Changing God inadvertently awakened a fearsome, ancient beast known as The Sorrow – a terrifyingly powerful guardian of balance, bent on destroying the Changing God and all of his Castoffs.

    It is at this point that the dramatic events of your birth unfold, and your story to answer who you are, and what your legacy might be, begins...​

    I find the depiction of the Changing God as a kind of Biblical patriarch to be inspired. Let's hope the game's story can live up to the power of that imagery.

    Cool trailer, I too enjoyed the biblical patriarch angle. But The Sorrow it a bit meh name.

    I liked The Angel of Entropy better. It was reminiscent of Klee's Angelus Novus and of the reflections on history and progress that the drawing suggested to Walter Benjamin:

    Hasn't Schizophrenic Monologues posted this in the BT 4 #33 Update?

    Reminds me of the work / trailer done for the TW3:
    Show Spoiler



    And for the Witcher 2: Geralts' memory.
    Show Spoiler




    It also staggered me why they changed the name. Perhaps it was to reminiscent to the tower of entropy.

    Looks good. It's a solid setup.

    They of course had to insert the whole "ancient being that hunts you down because you are abomination" angle, christ, can you get any more literally deus ex machina than a thing that exists specifically to prevent you cheating the rules. It would have been much better for the Castoffs to be hunted by the Changing God, by other Castoffs, or by society that has turned on the God or lusts after the Castsoffs' special properties, whatever.

    The Sorrow bit is meh, everything else seems rather interesting though.

    Can't wait to get disappointed in inExile again :shittydog:
