I wanted to take a moment to pass along a reminder that Torchlight, Runic’s well received Action Role-Playing game, is roughly half-off its retail price of $19.99 until later this evening, totaling just $10 after the discount (for the PC version).
If you’re the kind that enjoys a good discount, but would still like to get your hands on the game first, you can download the free demo of the game and begin playing through the first dungeons to see if its something that you’d enjoy before actually purchasing it (I mention this point, as well, because upon purchase you can activate your account directly from the previously installed demo and that turned out to be awful convenient).
I had heard buzz that the game was a lot of fun when it was released a year ago, but hadn’t had the opportunity to really follow up on it until yesterday when I caught wind of the anniversary sale. I fired up the demo after a fairly quick installation and 5-minutes in found myself exploring my first dungeon and, yes, having a really good time doing so. It didn’t take me long to decide that I wanted to treat myself to the game as a “reward” to myself for making it through a heck of a work week. I think it’ll end up being more than worth the price.
More on Torchlight’s Anniversary from Runic Games:
One year ago on the fateful day of October 27, 2009, a day that will live as a legend in our mind, a barely heard-of studio launched its first title: Torchlight.
Word of Ember blazed to life! Dungeon-crawler fans rejoiced, and our moms were proud. Because of you, Torchlight found a home and became a success. Because you love playing Torchlight and encouraged your friends to check it out, we are able to be here a year later, making Torchlight II. Our simple principle of making the type of game we want to play and doing so as efficiently as possible resonated with you. We’ve loved seeing your screenshots and hearing about your fire-ball casting pet cats. We were just as excited as you, when you unlocked the Horse level and found the Sword of Adam. We have a great team that cares about the work we do, we have great distribution partners, and most importantly we have an awesome community. Thank you for supporting us! We can’t wait to share everything that’s next with you all.
We are celebrating Torchlight’s one year PC anniversary with a 50% sale, for 48 hours on our site. Beginning October 27th at 8am PST, you can get Torchlight for PC at Torchlightgame.com for $10. Sale ends October 29th at 8am PST. This ensures everyone in their respective time-zones gets a chance to take advantage of the party! Tell your friends! And as always, thank you for playing.
