This year I took a trip to PAX West, in Seattle, for a little talk among devs, a little R&R, and a little cosplay. I didn’t travel on a press badge, but I did get a few press invitations that nonetheless intrigued me. The one that interested me the most was an invitation to see a preview of the new Torment game, Tides of Numenera.
Let’s get the disclosures out of the way first: I’m a backer of the game’s Kickstarter campaign, Tap-Repeatedly’s Steerpike was previously involved with the game, and I personally know some people involved with the game, including writer Colin McComb, who I worked with at a previous job! I’m also gonna disclose that one of the reasons I went for the interview was just to catch up with Colin and see what the heck he’d been working on. What I saw of the game was really cool… and you can read about that more below!
