Torment: Tides of Numenera takes it back to the good old days – but it might not be for everyone.
Role-playing experiences have always been a huge component of the games industry, pushing unmatched narratives and character development built around the player. However, with the genre having undergone significant changes over the past decade, many titles continue to move away from the immersive, tailored storylines which once made them unique.
Among the successes of the late 90’s, Planescape: Torment is a title that continues to receive praise to this day. Taking place in the Dungeons and Dragons campaign setting of the same name, the game earned unanimous acclaim for its deep lore. With an expansive, dynamic world and infinite opportunities, Planescape: Torment delivered a truly immersive take on the classic, role-playing formula, rammed with highly-customizable progression, strategic turn-based combat, and a wide and branching narrative.
