Crowdfunded project surpasses $3.5 million with less than two days to go
Yesterday’s surge catapulted past the $3.5M Stretch Goal. Chris Avellone, who was the lead designer for Planescape™: Torment (among many other credentials), is joining the design team! Yes it is official, Planescape lead designer Chris Avellone has joined InXile’s design team for Kickstarter project Torment: Tides of Numenera.
The addition of Avellone comes as the crowdfunded game surpasses $3.5 million, the stretch goal required for his services.
As well as working on Tides of Numenera, inspired by his own work on Planescape: Torment, Avellone has also been assisting with development on InXile’s other Kickstarter project Wasteland 2.
The designer has worked at a number of studios during his career, such as Interplay Entertainment, before founding Obsidian Entertainment in 2003, where he holds the position of chief creative officer.
