We all enjoy hearing about Kickstarter success stories. We gamers also love hearing about the games we enjoyed as children achieving huge success in being revitalized, either as (good) remakes like X-Com or with brand new sequels. It is this second type of classic reboot that we’ve got before us today with Torment: Tides of Numenera.
And it’s gonna be big.
The game is being pitched by inXile Entertainment, already successful on Kickstarter with their Wasteland 2 entry, and was put forth on the crowd-funding site this morning. It was talked about on GameSkinny a while ago and I put in my own pledge shortly after it began, already showing a strong pledge amount of over $100,000. Six hours after the project went up for pledging, I received an email, the first project update.
Saying that the game was fully-funded. Torment: Tides of Numenera received the full $900,000 it was asking for in pledges in the first six hours that it was possible to pledge at all. If I wasn’t excited about this game before, I certainly am now. With 29 days and about 17 hours to go, it seems certain that this game is well on its way to challenging the previous record-holders for Kickstarter, and it’s going to be thrilling seeing exactly how high it goes.
$990,183 pledged to Torment: Tides of Numenera as of writing. Stop reading and hit the source below to get in on this!
