Weekend Deal Alert: Torchlight and Torchlight II on Steam



If you like classic D&D-like RPGs as I do, then this is your weekend! Steam is offering 75% off both Torchlight and Torchlight II. That brings Torchlight to $3.74 and Torchlight II to $4.99.

The Torchlight series are RPGs that look and play very much like Diablo and Diablo III from Blizzard Entertainment. And they should, because Torchlight developer, Runic Games,  was founded by several ex-Blizzard folks.

Torchlight is very much a dungeon-delving RPG of the most classic kind. There are 3 classes: the Barbarian (melee tank), the Alchemist (mage), and the Vanquisher (ranged bows and guns).

Torchlight II is more like Diablo III in that you move around horizontally in the world as well as vertically down dungeons. There are 4 classes here: the Berserker (melee tank), the Embermage (mage), the Outlander (ranged weapons and guns), and the Engineer (melee damage dealer with special magic-imbued gear).

This could make me sign up for Steam finally. Which will bring plenty of other temptations, I’m sure. These offers end on January 13, 2014, so snatch them up fast!
