Many members of the Phoenix forums will be interested to know that currently the project Torment: Tides of Numenéra (TToN) is running on Kickstarter. The game, a computer RPG is crafted in the spirit of the classic CRPG Planescape: Torment, which is still thought of by many as one of the best CRPGs based on the AD&D rules to date.
TToN managed to make the set goal of 900,000 dollars in funding within seven hours after launch, making it the most successful Kickstarter project to date. Currently the meter is almost at 2.5 million dollars, meaning that a lot of stretch goals have already been reached as well.
Planescape: Torment was very popular in large part due to its enticing storyline and InXile, the company behind the project (and currently working on Wasteland 2, also through Kickstarter) promises to deliver a story similarly enticing. TToN will however not take place in the Planescape universe, but in Numenéra, a universe created for the tabletop RPG of the same name, by Monte Cook.
The Kickstarter project will run for another 24 days. Visit the project website to find out more about the game.
