Lighting It Up: Runic Investment And Sales


Runic, the folks behind Diablo-like dungeon-crawler Torchlight - which we talked about favourably when it arrived - have done rather well for themselves. It seems that Torchlight shifted 500k copies, and set Runic up to sell a large stake of themselves to Chinese MMO-imperialists Perfect World (for $8.4m, which would buy a lot of Peggles.) All of which bodes well for the previously mooted Torchlight MMO, which Runic talked about back in 2009. It must seems like Flagship was just a bad dream... (Via Le Shack.)
