Planescape: Torment (1999) is a single-player RPG that uses an enhanced version of the Baldur’s Gate Infinity engine to bring alive the wierd and wild Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Planescape setting. You are the Nameless One, an battered, immortal human that awakens on a slab in the Mortuary and must rediscover himself.

Planescape: Torment

 

Planescape: Torment is primarily story-driven; combat is given less prominence than in most contemporary role-playing games. The protagonist is an immortal who has lost his name, lived many lives, and forgotten them. The game focuses on The Nameless One’s journey throughout the city of Sigil and other planes to reclaim his memories of these previous lives. Several characters in the game may join The Nameless One on his journey, most of whom have encountered him in the past.

The game was not a significant commercial success but received widespread critical praise and has since become a cult classic. It was lauded for its immersive dialog, for the dark and relatively obscure Planescape setting, and for the protagonist’s unique persona, which shirked many characteristics of traditional role-playing games. It was considered by many video game journalists to be the best role-playing game (RPG) of 1999, and continues to receive attention long after its release.
