The Kickstarter fundraising campaign for Torment: Tides of Numenera has come to a close, raising $4,188,927 over the course of its 30 days on the crowdfunding site, more than 465% of its original $900,000 goal. This makes Torment the most-funded gaming software ever on Kickstarter, as well as the second-most funded gaming project in general, bested only by the $8.59 million raised to get Ouya off the ground.

Torment's Kickstarter has been a runaway success since it began on March 6, earning the totality of its original $900,000 goal in less than 24 hours. Since then, developer inXile Entertainment has added Planescape: Torment lead designer Chris Avellone to the project, in addition to delaying the game past its original December 2014 release window and into 2015.
