How did you discover the original Ps: Torment?
The year was 1999 , I was 11 and I remember reading an article on a rpg magazine about Torment. It gave a brief definition of the Ps setting and the Torment story, focusing on the fact that the protagonist can't die (actually, can't stay dead for long) , and explained how different it was from Baldur's Gate, specially the fact that you couldn't choose a class but you could find someone to teach you a new one. Finally, it reinforced the fact that all npc's had lots of interesting things to say (not just rumours and gossip as in BG) and you could actually LIE to them (as in the quest where you can pretend you avenged the tiefling's sisters just to get the reward.).
It looked so exotic and cool that I just needed to play it. Also, it was the first IE game I had ever played so it sure has a special spot in my heart.
How you guys, how did you get to know about it?
