Torment: Tides of Numenera becomes highest funded Kickstarter, closing at $4,188,927


Shut it down, boys: the dream is over. Those selfish folk over at InXile have gone and sucked all the money out of the internet to fund their pseudo-sequel to Planescape: Torment, Torment: Tides of Numenera. Reports of empty wallets the world over are already flooding in. There have been sightings of the money flying across the night’s sky to land softly on the pile at InXile’s door. Our resident economist Bill Dollarmen estimates that the pile is worth exactly $4,188,927.

If his estimate is on the money (a little fiscal humour there) then if would mean that Tides of Numenera is the highest funded Kickstarter project thus far.

Closing last night, Numenera passed a whole slew of stretch goals that saw the game’s story being expanded further, with new characters and locations, dialogue options and companions, and, if InXile can pull it off, we could be in for a treat of a game.

I could write them all out but just look at this lengthy list of game expansions which backers have funded:


There’s been so many stretch goals met that InXile have had to delay the games release date to sometime in 2015 from its original December 2014 schedule.

As a thank you to all the projects backers, InXile released a new concept art piece, it shows a man playing with some dogs:


Till 2015 then.
