No game dev makes a game with out copying another game in some way. Especially these days.

This isn't really news. Good ready though, definitely plan to pick this one up soon.

Admitting to the copy of Diablo and hitting the nail on the head as well as this dev has done can only mean one thing... It is a great game. I bought it last weekend and love every minute of it. Great game and you will love it.

hmm the best thing to really come out of this article that was not completely obvious is the torchlight mmo and they say people can make their own classes in the single player version of the game.

im going to have to buy this

I got off work at 12:30 AM, got home around 1 AM, ate some food, and then started playing Torchlight about 1:20-ish. It's now 7:42 PST at the time of my writing this comment, and I just now managed to find the will to stop playing. This game is so damn addictive, it should be considered illegal!

D3 isn't coming out until 2011 at the earliest so it's good to see more Diable-like games hitting the market. Torchlight is awesome and works on basically any computer made since 2000.
