inXile Entertainment’s Torment: Tides of Numenara may very well become the biggest Kickstarter-funded project till date. After raising $3,455,312 through 62,971 backs on Kickstarter and an additional $70K through PayPal, the team has recently added Planescape: Torment lead designer Chris Avellone to the development team.

Avellone co-founded Obsidian Entertainment, where he is currently working on Project Eternity as Creative Director. On Torment: Tides of Numenera, he will review and contribute to the story, characters and overall gameplay of the game along with scripting an eighth companion alongside Colin and Monte Cook.

With the addition of Avellone, inXile will now be holding stretch goals for a ridiculous $4.5 million. This include an even more complicated morality system, additional new locations and personal stronghold for the player will be included should backers reach the goal in the next, oh, 55 hours.

As it stands, inXile has achieve more than enough. Now all that remains is to see the final product, and judging by screenshots, it looks great already.
