Torment Tides of Numenera shares many similarities to Planescape Torment, you take control of a character that you can not customize voice or appearance wise (you can choose gender in this game), your character is pretty much immortal, and much of the game will be spent reading and dealing with different moral and philosophical ways of handling problems and finding out about who and what you are. In many ways the game improves on Planescape by switching to turn based combat which allows for more strategic options and more tactical encounters, removes the mobs of easily killable enemies and allows you to play through the game without fighting at all, dying takes you into an area of your mind where you can find new things to do, and the way that the skills and abilities work in Numenera (though the tabletop rules aren't copied for everything) are more fitting to a text and exploration heavy game like this. The world of Numenera is as interesting as a place to explore as Planescape, and it was created by some of the same people behind the Planescape setting. You can take three companions with you out of a total of six, though two refuse to be in a party together, and all are good characters, their abilities can be used for conversations and actions, they will have things to say during conversations, detailed backstories, and their actions can aid you by leading to different outcomes for certain situations. There are different ways to complete quests, things that can affect later events, and your choice of companions will make the game easy to replay to see different outcomes. If you were a fan of Planescape Torment, if you like the setting of Numenera, or just want a well-written RPG then this will likely be one of the best games released this year. The Immortal Edition includes the soundtrack and two of the novellas that were in the Legacy edition, notable extras in this edition is three more novellas and the game's strategy guidebook. The novellas are all a good read, adding to the lore and world of the game and to some of the game's characters. The strategy book can show you who gets what skills but if you are looking for a guide or walkthrough the internet is going to be a better option, very little art is included in the book with much of it just being large text, and what little art is in the book is included as wallpapers. If you are interested in the soundtrack, novellas, or just supporting the developer this version might interest you.
