Torment: Tides of Numenera release date set for 2017

Torment: Tides of Numenera received $4 million in funding through Kickstarter.

Totally Mutated Earth

Char burnt ground, nobody knows yet how far it extends into the terrain of the new Earth.

Very jagged, and dangerous tundra.


              What does one life matter? This is the main question this game is based on. The universe is very different. The planet this game is set on is the Earth 1 billion years from now. It has gone through several different civilizations. All that is left is cities and monuments.


       Humans have mutated, and look very different. They have tattoos that they can take off and use as weapons. Was their world getting so bad that had to develop this technology? Was this a failed science experiment? Or perhaps there was too much pollution on Earth and it caused people to mutate.


         There are still weapons on Earth, and this is one billion years later. What will they be like? Will there still be guns, tanks, drones, or even computers? I don’t have a clue but I am sure the game developers will make them look very cool.     


         This game is definitely not for children. There are some gruesome parts. There is a slug beast people live on called the Bloom. They believe in slave trade, and travel in this beast’s body. Everyone in this zone has a different back story that you need to figure out.


There is lots of killing in this game. You can sell a friend to a robot, who will kill them. It will destroy their body to gain youth for itself. You can take baby robots from their mothers and use them as bombs. You may also have a giant predator the size of a city eat your friends.

    This game is customized to you, and your choices. They will completely change the game. So each game is completely personalized for you. This game will be completely different for each person that plays it.

The decisions are yours

This game is written like a novel. There are questions the NPCs ask. Every answer alters the rest of the game.


There are many actions that you can choose, that affect the lives of others. Your actions will change the whole reality on Earth, and You need to decide very carefully.  


You can go back and change the past actions of other characters. This opens up a change in your character’s reality.   


You can also kill your friends. You can offer them to a robot who will sacrifice their body to regain their youth.


So who do you choose to choose to save? Who do you choose to kill? The choice is yours.


This all sounds like fun. However, the game is very unpredictable. This could lead to a  game over screen if you make the wrong decision.


I can’t wait for the release date!


This game is extremely thought provoking. I know I will play it when it is released. The release date is the first quarter of 2017.  It will be so fun to find all the content the writers made.

The game designers did a great job on the game, and the crises system. They want you to think in a different way. To inspire you to think of each action in your life in a different way. To inspire you to think of each action in your life and how it affects others.

How the crisis system will look. I love how witty the comments are already!  

An awe inspiring trailer for the game.
