Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that. It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece. I strongly recommend anyone...
Torchlight sets itself apart from other action RPGs with its intuitive, approachable interface, which enables gamers of all skill levels to quickly immerse themselves into the rich game play and varied world of Torchlight. The level randomizer will ensure that each adventure is unique with different monsters, treasures, puzzles and items for players to find, defeat, and unlock. Through a powerful suite of development tools, Runic Games will empower players and game enthusiasts alike to create and share their own content and levels.
This Torchlight demo allows users to player for 2 hours and it can be unlocked into the full version. For current owners, the demo also updates the previous version of the game to v1.15. It includes a number of new gameplay features and fixes.
Torchlight is a top-down action-RPG in the Diablo mould, descended from the never-released Mythos which was being made by Hellgate developer Flagship before it went under. Runic was formed by Diablo veteran Max Schaefer and other members of the Mythos team. Torchlight is currently a single-player RPG only, but a massively multiplayer version will be built on its bones and released next year.
This demo will allow you to play for 2 hours.
