Gamers can still contribute to the game’s development through PayPal. As the spiritual successor to Planescape: Torment, Torment: Tides of Numenara features many of the original development team and several old-school developers on board.
Just recently, the team add Planescape lead designer Chris Avellone to the team to contribute to the narrative and oversee all aspects of development.
