By John Walker on October 9th, 2009.

In their attempt to write a developer diary for Torchlight, Runic games managed this:

“Dear Diary, I think I will make a kick-ass game. Yes! That’s all for now. Lootfully yours, Runic Games.”

Fortunately they instead chose to elaborate further in video form, and you can see it below.

Torchlight Reveals The Alchemist

By John Walker on September 23rd, 2009.

Pretty!

Runic/Perfect World have this evening revealed a new class for next month’s dungeon crawler, Torchlight: the Alchemist. And they’ve done so with a really rather pretty video, which you can see below. The new Diablo-ish from veteran Travis Baldree (Fate, Mythos) has me very much looking forward to the 27th October when it comes out.

Illuminating Torchlight Footage

By Jim Rossignol on September 15th, 2009.


We’re particularly excited about Runic Games’ upcoming dungeon crawler, Torchlight. It’s looking incredibly slick and colourful, just the kind of thing that jiggles the lock on our treasure chest. Seeing it in action gives us a little more to be excited about, and thankfully some more in-game footage has appeared. This time it’s showing off one of the classes, The Vanquisher, who seems like badass lady-ninja type. There are also giant purple spiders. Go take a look.

Sunglasses for the Diablo crowd.

Jim mentioned the rather exciting looking Torchlight last week. A new PAX trailers has appeared, and it’s bloody lovely. This is the team who made the mythological Fate, and the ill-fated Mythos. Mythos, created as a tech test for the doomed Hellgate: London (and managing to be the better game) was absolutely fantastic fun. Fate of course is loved and adored by many post-Diablo fans. So there’s plenty of reason to be excited to see the team back to developing a dungeon crawler. Especially one this pretty.

Diabolical Promises: Torchlight

By Jim Rossignol on September 4th, 2009.


A large chunk of the PC gaming world seems positively frothy in anticipation of Diablo III, but there are other dungeon crawlers on the horizon too, including the splendid-looking Torchlight, from Runic Studios. It’s by some of the same chaps who worked on Fate, so it’s easy to get an idea of what to expect: randomly generated levels, lovely design, and lots of goblins. It should be super-playable, too, and allow us to create our own levels and scenarios. I’ve posted the trailer below, and blimey, it’s looking good. Check out that troll!

The game is out on the 27th of October and will be a $20 download.
