Microsoft’s House Party continues to shine on with the release of Runic Games’ Torchlight today. The Diablo-like game set the PC world on fire last year and now it’s available to download on the XBLA for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15).
Although, considering the fact that Runic has quite a few former Blizzard staffers on their payroll, the Diablo comparisons seem more than fair:
Torchlight is an action-roleplaying game developed by the creators of popular games Diablo and Fate. Players will choose from among three character classes, and venture from the safety of the town of Torchlight into randomly generated dungeon levels, with a huge variety of creepy monsters, endless variations of loot to find, and quests to complete. Randomized levels and an ‘endless dungeon’ unlocked after completing the main game ensure a long-lived gameplay experience.
