Torment: Tides of Numenera has reached beta, we previously checked out the Alpha Systems Tests and it will be interesting to see what changes have been made to those scenes. A word of warning however, the beta uses content from the critical path of the game, so the content this series covers will contain spoilers for the final game. Some elements may change, especially in terms of UI, puzzles or combat but I would not anticipate any of the major story beats changing.
The first part of this episode is literally the same as Alpha Systems Test 1, and largely I feel my initial feedback remains the same, I really hope that they provide more visuals to go along with the text here. There is a lot of really cool descriptions and scenes happening in the text but we don’t really get to see any of it, a few still pieces of art to go along with the sound and text would go a long way.
Unfortunately we also had some… technical difficulties in the Attunement chamber, frustrating in the moment but we are dealing with a beta after all. It shouldn’t have much impact to you guys but I will have to play through the early parts again before I can record the next episode.
See you next Thursday!
