Torment: Tides of Numenera Kickstarter tops $4M, becomes highest-funded game to date

Torment: Tides of Numenera, the new game in the Numenera tabletop RPG setting from InXile Entertainment, is now the highest-funded video game in Kickstarter history, with more than $4 million raised in its month-long campaign.

Tides of Numenera eclipsed the total of the previous record-holder, the $3.99 million that Obsidian Entertainment's Project Eternity pulled in last fall, this afternoon. There are less than three hours to go in Torment's funding drive — it ends at 8 p.m. ET tonight — and InXile still has additional stretch goals set for $4.25 million and $4.5 million.

In announcing the news on Twitter today, InXile founder Brian Fargo said that even more important than the $4 million milestone is the fact that "we all get to make the game of our dreams."

Torment: Tides of Numenera is set for release on Windows PC, Mac and Linux in 2015.

Update: The Kickstarter project closed today with InXile raising more than $4.18 million in donations for Torment: Tides of Numenera. Combined with donations from PayPal, InXile raised more than $4.3 million, pushing the developer past its $4.25 million stretch goal.
