    Interview With Runic's Writer, JD Wiker

    Interview With Runic's Writer, JD Wiker-footer-gx-logo-png
    Games Xtreme has just posted up an interview with Runic Games' Writer, JD Wiker. Here, Wiker goes into into some detail about the story in Torchlight II, as well as what he thinks of the game.


    For those of you who don't want to read the full interview, here's a list of some of the important points, as well as a couple of quotes:

    • Will tell the story of the oldest races; the dwarves, the Estherians, the Zeraphi, and the Ezrohir.
    • Will introduce the Elemental Guardians, the 'gods' in the world.
    • Keeping the original art style.
    • Should include fun uniques, such as the mentioned "Spear-Bot 2300."
    • Confirmed two cities; the last enclave of the Estherians, and the mostly-abandoned city of Zeryphesh.
    • Two unconfirmed locations; the ruins of dwarven civilizatio, and an "extra-special, completely exotic zone"
    • Cut scenes are pretty much confirmed
    • And, Darth Vader is cooler than Boba Fett



    "Torchlight 2 is going to explore a slightly larger piece of the world - its "cradle of civilization," as it were. That means exploring the backstories of the world's oldest races - the dwarves, the Estherians, and the Zeraphi (and their Ezrohir cousins) - as well as telling the story of what the characters from Torchlight have been doing since their triumph over Ordrak, and introducing the closest thing to "gods" in the world: the elemental Guardians. It will also answer some questions about Ember, that oh-so-dangerous mineral, including why people keep using it when it has such terrible side-effects."

    "There's going to be a main storyline that takes the players on a tour of some of the more exotic areas of the continent of Vilderan - the "new world" from the human perspective; it's actually the home of the world's oldest races, and where the mining town of Torchlight is located. They'll visit the last enclave of the Estherians - the mystical race whose magical traditions have been taught to humans, like Syl from the original game - and be introduced to the Guardians ... and find out why they're important to the world."

    And finally, check out the full interview here.
