Torchlight

Post by tbaldree » Fri Apr 24, 2009 6:58 am

We've now officially announced our game, Torchlight - we've really loved using Ogre3D, and are very happy with the results we achieved in a very short period of time!
Thanks for the awesome engine, Ogre team!

Wow. Screenshots look great! I hope to see more of these soon :)
How will the game be distributed? And is there a release date already?

I was waiting for this :wink:
Looks very good. Unbelievable you managed to come this far in such a short time, basicly starting from scratch.

The floor textures and color tonation remind me of Diablo 3 ;)
Excellent work! Keep going!

Answers to a couple of questions -

Release - we'll be releasing a single-player this year, followed up with an MMO later on -

UI - Actually, we're using a combination of CEGUI and 3d meshes for our UI

We licensed Particle Universe and are using a heavily modified version of that for our particle systems

We stuck with fixed-function all the way, no shaders, to make sure we could properly support our minspec.

Yay! A little bird told me you guys were using Ogre now, but I was waiting for some kind of official announcement. Looks completely awesome :)

I'm really glad to hear you're enjoying using Ogre. It's always nice to hear, but it's even better when it comes from a veteran team, so thanks.

And thanks for Diablo BTW. My brother-in-law invested literally years to that game and its sequel. Honestly, he still plays it now!

Edit: I embedded images in this thread according to our policy. So we're not bandwidth-stealing, the images are served from our Flickr gallery but the links still lead to the Runic fansites, hope that's ok.

Wow, MMORPG, with developpers from Diablo, published by Perfect World (I'm currently playing their game on my spare time :lol: )

I feel like I'm gonna love this one a LOT !

Awesome graphics, I like the style.

This is amazing news! :D
Diablo is one of my all time favorite games.
Can't believe you guys are using Ogre !

Really like the cartoonish look.
Thumbs up!
And good to hear that a single-player version is in the oven.
I am definitely going to get it! :D
