Awesome, Planescape had some of the best characters and dialog in any game I've played. I'll keep an eye out for this one.

You don't need to keep an eye out for it.

You can buy it (and add your own design contributions if you can afford them) by visiting here: https://torment.inxile-entertainment.com/store

The Kickstarter drive may be over, but you can still donate and buy the game.

Fair enough, I'd rather support Black Isle than the Caymans.

You do realize Black Isle is defunct and many of its members now comprise Obsidian Entertainment, right?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obsidian_Entertainment

And you do realize that Chris Avellone (the lead designer of the original Planescape:Torment game) from Obsidian Entertainment will be working on Torment: Tides of Numenera?

Visit http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/03/29/chris-avellone-interview-torment-project-eternity-and-beyond/ (read page 2 of the article to see what his role is)

Interplay published the original Planescape: Torment.

Brian Fargo was the founder of Interplay, which is defunct.

Brian Fargo is now the founder of inXile Entertainment, which is developing Torment: Tides of Numenera.

Mark Morgan, the original music composer from Planescape: Torment, is back composing tracks for Torment: Tides of Numenera.

Colin McComb, the area designer and dialogue developer from Planescape: Torment, is the lead designer on Torment: Tides of Numenera.

In short, this is as close to being a spiritual successor of Planescape: Torment as it gets.

The dream team is back.

And Torment: Tides of Numenera is now the highest funded video game in Kickstarter history (beating out Obsidian Entertainment's Project Eternity):
http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/04/05/torment-tides-of-numenera-is-the-most-funded-kickstarter-game-ever-watch-the-wrap-party-live/

Also, it should be noted that Obsidian Entertainment donated towards Torment: Tides of Numenera.

Donating (or buying) before the end of April helps contribute to the game's development.

Most triple A games require budgets of over $20 Million. This cRPG won't come close to that (which is one reason why Kickstarter was required; another reason is big publishers don't want to take risks on Black Isle type cRPGs anymore).

lol, you do realize that I drink too much. But yes, I was a huge fan of Interplay and Black Isle back in the day. My one wish is this...... "Dream team, dream team never changes." Godspeed ahead.
