Torchlight and Torchlight Demo Released

The Torchlight Website announces the release of Torchlight, the new action/RPG from Runic Games (thanks A51Abductee). They describe some issues they've had to overcome, which means they are not offering the playable demo just yet, but the demo can be acquired through Steam. The full game is available from Runic Games as well as GamersGate, Steam, and WildTangent. Here's a bit of the official description of the game:

The adventure is set in the mining settlement of Torchlight, a boomtown founded on the discovery of rich veins of Ember Ė a rare and mysterious ore with the power to enchant or corrupt all that it contacts. This corruptive power may have dire consequences however, and players set out into the nearby mountains and depths below to discover the full extent of Emberís influence on the civilizations that have come before.

Players will choose from among three character classes, and venture from the safety of the town of Torchlight into randomly generated dungeon levels, with a huge variety of creepy monsters, endless variations of loot to find, and quests to complete. The endless randomization ensures a long-lived gameplay experience.

The demo sold me on the game as well. Lots of fun.

I've got only one set piece so far (made it to level 14); if I find a second one, I get 9-11 electricity damage bonus. Given that my bow does 234/sec, it's not huge, but I'll take it

For a while there I ran around with a unique rifle (sorcell's) and a unique coat that looks like the enforcer's coat from Fallout 3. That fitting stylishness just felt really cool
