Torment: Tides of Numenera, the spiritual successor to the phenomenal Planescape: Torment, was revealed to be taking the crowd-funding route some time ago, and now inXile are finally about to start their Kickstarter campaign on Wednesday, March 6.

InXile's other work in progress, Wasteland 2, had an extremely successful Kickstarter, as did Numenera, the tabletop RPG and setting of Torment, created by Monte Cook. So this new campaign is treading familiar ground.

Chris Avellone, who led Planescape: Torment's development team, has put together a wee video endorsing the game -- it's got a lot of sticky stars -- and he explains why he thinks this spiritual successor is in more than capable hands.

I'll be chatting with inXile's Colin McComb and Kevin Saunders about Torment later today, so keep an eye out for the interview this week.

First game is on my next pc backlog game to play. Am tempted to support this, as long as they're not dropping the ball on Wasteland 2's continual development.

I'd like to support this, but honestly I don't have much faith inXile as a developer. This is a "wait and see". Wasteland 2 does look promising.

Just curious, why do you not have faith in them?

Just due to their track record. I didn't care for Bard's Tale, and Hunted: The Demon's Forge is one of the worst games I've played for the ps3.

I have played through Bard's Tale on my iPad. It is pretty good but I think it may be the story that made me enjoy it so much.

As far as Wasteland 2 goes, they have provided more updates on the progress of development than Double Fine has with their adventure game. They've also shown in-game footage (like 30-40 min worth) and it looks pretty good for pre-alpha. In general I think inXile has done pretty well. I don't expect the game to be perfect, but I think it will be as good as any other isometric RPG.

Did you try the remake of Baldur's Gate? What did you think? I think it is so-so but have only played about 3-4 hours so far.

BTW: I am just using Double Fine as a comparison since the both held their kickstarter drives around the same time, not slamming them or anything.

I haven't played the BG remake yet.

Wasteland 2 does look really good, and I hope it turns out as good as it looks, as I've been in the mood for a game like that.
