Torchlight Developer Diary Part 1: The Talent

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.

It's a shame it sounds like they recorded it using Skype on dial-up (yeah, like we can talk), but apart from that this is a fun insight into developers behind the forthcoming dungeon crawler. They employ someone with the job title Zombie Pyrotechnician. Which is a recession-proof skill.

In the video they confirm it will be $20, and come with a level editor on release. Which is on the 27th October.
