    I have searched for threads for this game but haven't found any so I am opening this one.

    Torchlight is an hack and slash action RPG. I guess you could call it a Diablo clone if this game was not made by the original Diablo team.

    In this press release Runic Games announces that Torchlight will be released on October 27 for $19.99 as a fully downloadable game.

    It will also feature mod tools that can be used to create own dungeons or even add own assets to the game. Here are the first two vids of the Preditor (vid1, vid2) which shows how easy it is to create new dungeons.

    And here is of course the official Site were you can find footage and concept arts from the game.

    Discuss!

    For reasons that elude me 20charactersmax posted this in the Mythos thread

    Anyhow, I took a brief look at the film clips and all but the whole thing just can't manage to tempt me, at all.
    The cartoonish look really doesn't work as far as I'm concerned and it seems to lack the depth that more recent hack-and-slash games have brought to the genre.

    Unless there's a hidden gem in there exposed by reviewers upon release I'm afraid I'll let it slip.

    This is available for pre-order on Steam now, for 13.49.

    I dug out my Fate key earlier and played that for about 8 hours. Seriously getting my randomised loot on this month.

    First review here.

    Granted, it's from a fansite, bu you can tell the reviewer had a ton of fun, and the bit about the monster design sounds good.

    Just ordered this on Steam then realised that my Windows 7 doesn't like the Steam client updating itself for some reason so i might have a nightmare trying to get it working and downloaded ;__;

    the pet system looks well done

    Yeah, sweet that you can dump the unwanted loot on the dog and send him off to town.

    Forgot this is out today, I have it on Steam pre-order. You wait months for a loot-em-up, and then two are released within 24 hours!

    There's a full review here: http://www.criticalgamer.co.uk/2009/10/26/torchlight-review/

    It's a good game, but it might get buried by all the bigger games releasing.

    Meh, you only have your germanic cheaty Borderlands copy to thank for that. It's a 72 hours range for the PC gaming community at large!

    ;-)

    While I wasn't enthusiastic at first I'm in the same boat now. I somehow find the screenies and videos a lot more tempting and I wouldn't know why.
    And the few responses I've seen were quite positive.
    And it's cheap.
    And I'd be sponsoring an indie developer :)

    There seems to be a demo, you fence-sitters, you. Unless it's just a bonus for people who pre-ordered, because it popped up alongside the full game in the "my games"list. ;p

    Oh man, steam is such an unstable piece of shit these days, I searched for the demo and it plopped. It's on there though.

    ed: K, downloading. 14.99 is a nice pricetag whether or not it's as good as I'm hearing.

    Okay, demo done downloading etc, time to play.

    Prepare for incoming scathing quick-review on whether it's worth it.

    My internet on my pc just decided to die as I was seconds away from clicking the download on my Steam list.

    If i'd realised there was a demo I might have been a bit more cautious, but hey, it's cheap for a new game as has been mentioned.

    Let's hope I ever get to play it. Bastard internet (who ever heard of all the wired connections on a router dying whilst the wireless ones remain fine? May be a question for another thread!)

    It's lovely.

    Rock-solid hack-and-slash mechanics, wonderful special effects, fishing (giving fish to your pet (cat or dog) temporarily gives it special abilities), and TONS OF LOOT. The music is even more cheekily ripped straight from Diablo than anything else. :)

    edit:

    Forgot: fixed camera perspective. No camera fiddling FTW.

    Hah, yep I thought exactly the same thing about the music during the intro, and now with it alt tabbed in the background it's sounding very Blood Moor indeed.
