The adventure is set in the mining settlement of Torchlight, a
boomtown founded on the discovery of rich veins of Ember - a
rare and mysterious ore with the power to enchant or corrupt
all that it contacts. This corruptive power may have dire
consequences however, and players set out into the nearby
mountains and depths below to discover the full extent of
Ember's influence on the civilizations that have come before.
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. The endless randomization ensures a
long-lived gameplay experience.
Randomization - Our level layouts are randomly created, so
each adventure is unique. Monsters, treasures, puzzles, and
items are also different each time you embark on an adventure.
Easy, approachable interface - Torchlight is designed to be
easy to play right from the beginning. The intuitive interface
gives players easy access to a rich and varied world.
Retirement System - Once characters are sufficiently leveled
up, they can "retire" and bestow specific benefits and perks
to new characters.
Pets - Players will choose a pet to accompany them. Pets can
level up along with the player, and will help in battle, carry
items, and perform a variety of helpful services.
Character Classes Players will create and customize a
character from one of three classes available, and choose an
animal companion. Through cosmetic choices, skill path
decisions, and the treasures they acquire, each character will
be custom-tailored and different.
Fishing - Players can take a break from the high-energy pace
of adventuring to visit one of the fishing holes and relax and
see what they can catch. Fish have interesting benefits for
the player and pet, and other rewards can also be discovered
