In a world where time itself has been torn, family is more important than ever.
Explore concepts of kinship - by blood and by choice - in a setting that spans lush rainforests, monster-infested seas, wild valleys, and frozen mountains. Journey between the strictly licensed, steam-powered cities of the southern Empire and the small communal villages in the north that believe they are alone in the world. Meet the varied people and cultures who define family in so many different ways. Glimpse mysteries unique to the temporal structure of Torn World and search for answers to universal questions about belonging and relating.
Torn World writers, artists and poets brings fresh new visions of family and coming of age to the printed page.
Blurring the lines between science fiction and fantasy and bending the rules of time itself, Torn World invites you to tear into a new kind of shared world.
