Planescape: Torment spin-off hits $1m Kickstarter goal in 6 hours

InXile Entertainment on course to break new funding record

California studio InXile Entertainment broke the $900,000 Kickstarter funding goal for its new game in just six hours.


Its latest project, called Torment: Tides of Numenera, is a single-player RPG considered to be the spiritual successor to Interplay's 1999 classic Planescape: Torment.

At the time of going to press, and less than a single day since the launch of the project's Kickstarter campaign, Tides of Numenera has amassed more than $1.6 million from crowdfunded cash. A full 29 days of funding remains.

"We are deeply appreciative of your support of both Torment and role-playing games in general," said project director Kevin Saunders.

"Some of you are here, and supporting us, because of your love for Planescape: Torment, a game that inspired us as well."

The most cash a game has generated on Kickstarter is Obsidian Entertainment's Project Eternity, which in October 2012 made just under $4 million.
