Primordia Developer Joins Torment Writing Team

Through a post on the official Torment: Tides of Numenera Tumblr blog we learn that Mark Yohalem, the writer behind the point-and-click title Primordia, has joined the writing team on inXile's upcoming Torment successor. Yohalem seems pretty excited about being able to work on the title:

A while ago, I mentioned I had two exciting things to announce. I can finally share the first of them: I have been given the wonderful opportunity to work as a writer on Torment: Tides of Numenera. As you guys probably know, the original Torment game (Planescape: Torment) was my principal inspiration for Primordia. The T:TON writing and design team is composed of people whose work I've long admired: Colin McComb, George Ziets, Kevin Saunders, Chris Avellone, Monte Cook to name just a few. Numenera was one of the very first projects I backed on Kickstarter as part of my commitment to using Primordia's revenue to support interesting projects; T:TON came not long after. To suddenly be on the same team as these guys is not a dream come true because, first of all, my dreams tend to be unpleasant and, second, even my subconscious would not be so audacious as to invent such a scenario. While I am optimistic that this is another step on my game-writing path and not the end destination, it does feel like a milestone as important as Primordia was.

Hopefully in the next week or two I will be able to talk about the other exciting topic, which is Wormwood Studios' next project, Fallen Gods. I expect that, far from delaying Fallen Gods, T:TON will teach me tons and encourage me to be more efficient in time-management.
