There's things to be learned every day! I knew Torin was supposed to become a series, but didn't know these details. Thank you for that, Tawmis!

wow that sounds like it could have been an epic series. makes it all the more sad that things ended up the way they did. i absolutely loved Torins passage and i think it is one of the most under Rated sierra game or at least one of their best quality games that not many people got to experience and even fewer remember
