Planescape Torment Vision Statement


The original vision statement by Chris Avellone used to pitch Torment to the Interplay management for development back in 1997 (download PDF). Included is a first draft of the Ravel dialogue brief, as well as the final version for comparison. Thanks to RPGWatch – Tales of Torment interview part 1 and part 2 for this intriguing insight. Also here’s a nice Planescape Torment retrospective.

    I absolutely love the ballsy attitude in this document. Being an official pitch, I have to applaud that and wonder how many game developers from the last decade had this kind of courage in their attitude towards publishers.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
