About the Story

First released in 2004 by Tornís founder Joe Chedburn, Torn was one of the first massively multiplayer text-based online RPGs of its kind.

Joe is still an active part of the 12 strong design and development team committed to developing great new content and awesome features.

The aim of the game is simple. Create your character to infinite strengths and abilities in Torn City, a gritty crime based virtual world.

Torn is a long-term endeavour. There's no quick routes to the top.

Since Torn is text-based there are very few graphics which means itís never outdated but the content is deep and will keep you entertained for years. Yes, years!

Many residents of Torn City have been playing for over 5 years, which is testament to constant feature releases and depth of the game.

You play it your way. You choose the path you want your character to take.

Want to be a master criminal, making money from crime, or a high flyer looking to build your next corporate empire and recruit other players to work for your business? Thereís so many ways to make (and lose) money in Torn and some seriously bad people whoíll do anything to stop you.

Become stronger by training in one of the 30+ city gyms. Unlock new gyms as you progress or specialist gyms if youíre looking to train a certain stat.

Attack other players, trade valuable items with others, create factions and own territories within the city. Modify and race cars at the illegal street circuits within the city. Invite enemies to play Russian roulette or put a bounty of their head if theyíre getting too big for their boots.

Torn is a long-term strategic game. With no-resets and 100ís of new players becoming Torn City residents each day thereís always plenty of people to compete against at the same level.

With an awesome community, active forums and active new player chat channel; there really is no better time to visit Torn City.

Besides... itís 100% free to play. What have you got to lose?

Hardly Fiction, January 11, 2017
Torn is a grindy stat-crunching slog. It's dull flavor text papered over a pile of numbers. It's "fiction" only in the sense that the website has a fictive atmosphere, but no real narrative is possible. I don't think this game offers the kind of fun most IF players are looking for.
