To Alpha Testing & Beyond!

To Alpha Testing & Beyond! - Torment: Tides of Numenera -

So much for channeling the inner Buzz Lightyear, but the fact remains that inXile's latest update includes the happy news that Torment: Tides of Numenera is ready to give the alpha systems some work. Those backers with alpha systems access in their tier rewards will be able to get a look at small chunks of the early story, not only to test the systems, but to get an idea of where the overall project is headed developmentally.

A0 consists of the opening scenes of the game, including the narrative-based character creation Adam talked about in our previous update. The purpose of this AST was mostly to have our backers experience the atmosphere of the game, play around with the dialogue interface, and get an impression of the quality and feel of writing. The second, B0, consists of two scenes from the very early parts of the game, showing more of our exploration HUD as well as exploration mechanics and a glimpse at the game's companions and even a tease of the items I've been designing and implementing in the game.

Want to know more? Head to the Torment: Tides of Numenera KickStarter page to read more.
