An interesting little tidbit of information has trickled into the wild today, when the database information for Torchlight II on Steam was altered. Now, in addition to the entry for the PC Version there are entries for Mac OS (which is confirmed to still be in development) and Linux. Here is a copy of the entries, which originally can be found by clicking here.
- 200714/config/language: english
- 200714/config/oslist: macos
- 200714/name: Torchlight II Mac
- 200715/config/language: english
- 200715/config/oslist: linux
- 200715/name: Torchlight II Linux
Meanwhile, Torchlight 1 had a similar change. While Torchlight 1 was released on Linux already, it was only available via a Humble Indie Bundle, and not through Steam. Here is a copy of the Torchlight 1 changes:
- 41504/config/oslist: linux
- 41504/name: Torchlight Linux
- launch/2/config/osarch: 32
- launch/2/config/oslist: linux
- launch/2/executable: Torchlight.bin.x86
- launch/3/config/osarch: 64
- launch/3/config/oslist: linux
- launch/3/executable: Torchlight.bin.x86_64
Perhaps this is a sign that there will be Linux releases simultaneously with the Mac release of Torchlight 2, and the big day is finally almost here? I'll be sure to post when either there is confirmation or official denial. ...byPublished on 06-22-2014 08:17 AM
Hello all! Great news to share with you today! To get straight into it, thanks to several considerate contributions to the site we'll now be Advertisement-Free for all registered members until the end of July! That means no download delay screens for the Torchlight 2 mods and no more banners anywhere. Thank you all! It really feels like every time I start to worry about the site's finances someone selflessly steps up to help out! ...byPublished on 06-20-2014 06:13 AM

Hey all! Sorry for the delay in posting today's content! What can I say, the baby's gone mobile and needs watching. Speaking of being 30 years old and with a small child, let's start with the most recent Q&A with UI Artist Mike Fisher and move on backwards in time!
Moving on back, last week's Q&A featured Lead Character Artist Jeremy Miller:
And finally, the week before last featured the extremely awesome Level Designer Jesse Tucker:
That's it for now! On a side note, Runic also recently posted that they are hiring for a visual effects artist, but the listing with up nearly two weeks ago, so I'm not sure how good your odds are at applying now. If you're free and qualified, give it a shot!
