Torment: Tides of Numenera breaks Kickstarter record

Torment: Tides of Numenera

inXile are more than pleased with the results of the Kickstarter campaign for Torment: Tides of Numenera as it broke the record on Kickstarter for game funding.

With a few hours to go the campaign raised a whopping $4,188,927. InXile’s Brian Fargo was quick to post up his thanks to the community and backers.

There is no way this game would have ever been funded without this new method of connection and without the passion of our backers who didn’t just donate but worked as a team to spread the word. You guys rock! The passion of the RPG gamer is like none other.

We are both humbled and excited that you have given us this opportunity. The team we have assembled is pretty unbelievable and I have full faith that together we will create a true classic. I never stopped working to get Chris Avellone aboard to make sure we had the band back together. But it only got better when we brought on guys like Pat Rothfuss and Kevin Saunders to take the game to new heights. The trick is always to surround ones self with brilliant people and to create an environment in which creativity can flourish.

Once again I would like to thank you for making it possible for me and all my team at inXile to spend many more years creating the best RPGs we can.

A great outcome for inXile and now all we have to do is sit an wait for the game to be created.
