How do you present the intricacies of meaningful choices and their complex consequences in a game trailer? It is probably impossible – unless it’s via an interactive trailer, where you can make decisions and try out different outcomes yourself.
This is why Techland Publishing and inXile Entertainment have created an interactive quest video for Torment: Tides of Numenera – to effectively demonstrate how combinations of choices allow players to shape their own stories and leave a mark on the game’s world.
The video may not work properly on mobile devices – desktop computers recommended.
The video is narrated by creative lead Colin McComb, who – not unlike a traditional RPG Dungeon Master – guides the player through the quest, revealing secrets and subtle details of the world of Numenera.
Although it features several different endings, the quest showcased in the video is but a tiny sample of themes, stories, and subplots players will get to experience in Torment: Tides of Numenera. As the game has recently gone gold, players can start their final preparations for February 28th, when this science-fantasy RPG will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
