Torchlight

Postby 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!

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.

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
