Brian Fargo interview: Torment, the RPG renaissance, and the ongoing clown war

PC Gamer - inXile’s “Leader in Exile,” Brian Fargo, is doing pretty well lately. Wasteland 2 represented one of the first successes for Kickstarter games, and the studio’s second such foray, Torment: Tides of Numenera, has pulled in $3.3 million, with a few days left to go. I caught up with him at GDC in a hotel named after a pirate to discuss the new Torment, the PC RPG renaissance, and why projects like this can be so successful, yet still get the upturned nose from big publishers.
