Product Description

Story

Explore Earth one billion years in the future in the science-fantasy setting of Numenera. Discover the Ninth World built on the bones of extinct, hyper-advanced civilizations and leave your own mark on it. Make thousands of essential choices, face the consequences, and meet death incarnated as you seek the answer to the ultimate question: What does one life matter?

Before the Ninth World was born, many great civilizations had risen and fallen, leaving behind remnants of their advanced technology. One man discovers a way to use these devices, known as the numenera, to jump between bodies and thus cheat death. Yet his method awakens an ancient and deadly force called The Sorrow, which tries to kill the death-cheater and all his former bodies: including you.

World of Numenera

Torment tells a new story in a radically different setting: the Ninth World, the setting of Monte Cook's tabletop RPG Numenera. It's a science fantasy setting—not strictly fantasy, because it takes place in a future Earth built on technology that could conceivably exist (though certainly not with our current capabilities), but not strictly science fiction either, because the technology maintains a strong sense of weirdness and mystery akin to magic. This is especially true in Torment, where we prefer to emphasize the fantasy feel over sci-fi.

Ninth Worlders don't talk about androids, DNA, nanites, or computers, but rather constructs, nano-spirits, and ancient intelligences. There might be a biomechanical alien that uses nanotechnology to phase through quantum dimensions, but even the Aeon Priests--the most educated of Ninth Worlders--wouldn't use any of those words. An Aeon Priest might call it a transdimensional visitant that uses the numenera to exist partially out of phase, while everyone else would just call it a demon.

This is standard iso-metric rpg that is set in the very strange monte cook Numenera universe. This rpg appears to be in the same vein as Planescape Torment. It has some glitches but is otherwise unique and fun.

A relief for rpg fans. Heavily story based, must like games that you have to read, fighting but no grinding at all which I prefer, unique story and world. All in all I am thoroughly enjoying this game. I do think it may be a little short for my tastes but a worthy purchase none the less.

Densely Packed Worthy Successor to its Namesake

Torment is extremely a throwback to the CRPG heavy hitters of early BioWare and Black Isle Studios (RIP) titles like Baldur’s Gate and its spiritual predecessor and namesake, Planescape: Torment. This game has a lot of reading in it. Like, a lot. This could practically be described as a “visual novel” though the usual connotation that phrase carries with it don’t match up. But i truly liken this game to falling into a densely packed fantasy or sci-fi novel. And the writing is good! The character work is thoughtful and considered, the quests come to satisfying, sometimes unexpected conclusions. Honestly there is so much up in the air conceptually here that you need strong writing like this to have an anchor point, something to keep a first-time player connected without getting lost among all the made-up jargon. If you play RPGs and just devour the lore offered within, this game has so much for you. If you’re the type to look for ways to lie, cheat and charm your way out of (or into) fights, this game is for you. if you crack open a story of such high-concept sci-fi that every third word is complete nonsense, and you LOVE IT? This game is for you. I just hope you brought reading glasses, or a real big TV.

This game is fun if you like multiple ways to journey through the gameplay and have different outcomes for your endgame. It may be a little slower paced because of all the interactive decision making, but it was entertaining and fun. The graphics are good, too.
