Runic Games has announced a Photo contest! The rules are simple, use a sprite image (I'll put a big on at the bottom of this post) and place it into a photo with you. Then tweet the photo to @RunicGames with the hashtag #HobPhotoContest. Here's the official rules:

On August 11 I was lucky enough to be in Seattle. Why does that make me lucky? Because I had an open invitation to come visit Runic Games whenever I was in town, and it just happened to be their seven year anniversary as a company, and it was a scant two weeks before PAX Prime - important because they had a brand new game announcement to be made and I got to check it out early! Want the details? Read on!
I arrived downstairs at around 11:30 in the morning and was greeted down at the security checkpoint by Brian, who led me up to the office. It was a wide open office with walls covered in art and stickie notes, with probably more computers than I’ve ever seen in one place and people with headphones behind most of them. It was kind of funny because they assumed I already knew about the new game, but between fatherhood, work, and prep for an international flight I’d been out of the loop for weeks now. This is important to point out,because with absolutely no previous knowledge they sat me down, had me sign an NDA, and dropped me straight in to a game of HOB.

Howdy y'all! Today I've compiled all the Torchlight Mobile previews from this year's E3 in to one bonanza of a news post! To make the deal even sweeter, I've also gathered all of the screenshots from various sources to one gallery for you to check out. Read on!
First up is a preview from GameGrin, which in addition to a nice in-depth review of the gameplay so far, contained an accidental tidbit, in the form of screenshots like this:If you look VERY carefully you can see that the shots from this site (and no other site) were taken from within the Unity Editor, a very versatile engine which I happen to recognize from a personal project of my own. The cool point about the engine is that it can build to just about any platform, from desktop to console and every mobile device in-between. This also means the game was rebuilt from the ground up, as the previous Torchlight games were build using the graphics engine Ogre3D. Here's a quote from the article to finish off our GameGrin coverage:
Next up, unless I've been fooled by another aggregator bot, is a blurb and a photo from Android Headlines. The photo shows some cool E3 swag and the only shot we have of the title menu: ...byPublished on 06-13-2015 06:11 PM
Woooooooooooooooooot! I mean, hello everyone! Awesome news to bring you today, with the announcement of Torchlight Mobile! Quick, to the press release!
You can also check out the developer's forums for new info and the official site for concept art. Just from glancing at everything, my guess is that Torchlight Mobile might be a multiplayer prequel featuring Alric. We'll see!
The game will be shown at E3. I've also noticed that Runic has replaced their R logo with a new one, in case that means anything.

Hello all, just a little system notice for you: If you see this then you have survived the server switch, which may have taken a couple days to hit you depending on technical things like local DNS servers refreshing. There have also been some updates, and there are some more updates planned for the near future.
In the meantime, if you find a bug or error page, or something broken, let me know! Either in this post's comments or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org ...
