Watch 30 minutes of the Torment: Tides of Numenera beta

While chatting with creative lead Colin McComb.

What are you doing for the next, say, half-an-hour? Nothing? Oh that's good because I've got a video for you to settle into.

Torment: Tides of Numenera has arrived... sort of. Three years after the record-breaking Kickstarter campaign, the thematic successor to Planescape: Torment is playable via Steam Early Access, which means it isn't quite finished but there are around 10 hours of a much larger game to enjoy.

To mark the occasion I phoned creative lead Colin McComb, who had kindly recorded some game footage for me, and we waffled over the top. Mute us if you like, and focus on the game's painterly locations and evocative writing, but you'll miss some interesting tidbits if you do - promise!

If you'd rather wait for the full, finished game, you may be waiting a few more months, McComb said. Things will change, things will be improved, but the gist of the deep, storied experience is there.

Torment: Tides of Numenera is £30.98 on Steam Early Access.
