With Torment: Tides of Numenera, developer inXile Entertainment is working to deliver an RPG cloaked in mystery. Your hero arrives in the game's Ninth World without any memories of who they are or how they got to this strange new place. As a new trailer shows, "strange" might be a bit of an understatement.

The setting is based on Monte Cook's tabletop game Numenera, and it's not your typical fantasy romp. The Ninth World is actually Earth in the distant future, and a medieval-like culture is flourishing. There are remnants of the high-tech past in this world, and priests and intellectuals are working to understand the significance and functionality of these ancient devices.

Torment: Tides of Numenera is set for a PC release sometime later this year.
