Written by on


Torment: Tides of Numenera, from inExile/Techland, combines deep sci-fi and fantasy in an epic RPG that takes place on Earth a billion years in the future. Here, you’re sacrificed for someone else’s immortality. However, there’s a way to take advantage of your death and write your own story in which you’ll make thousands of essential choices and face their consequences.

Discover and master devices called numenera, which are both beneficial and horrible, ineffable and inexplicable. This will enable you to jump from one body to another.

Unfortunaely, body-jumping has a side-effect. It awakens an ancient, deadly force known as The Sorrow. It wants to kill you. Or maybe everybody.

Meet death incarnate as you seek the answer to the ultimate question: What does one life matter?

Torment: Tides of Numenera has been released on Windows (Steam  and GOG), Xbox One and PS4.

Seize your life. Forge your legacy.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
