Torchlight is one of the more interesting PC games in the works. This action role-playing game has a strong pedigree, with developers responsible for Diablo and Fate at the helm.
Runic Game's founder Max Schaefer has outlined a lot of new details about Runic's plans for Torchlight. He goes into some depth on plans to use a microtransaction model for the MMO – something that draws a lot from the experiences developing the unreleased Flagship game, Mythos. While there is still some doubt in gamers's minds about item sales and the effect they have on game balance, Runic is putting a lot of thought into just how well it can implement the model.
