    Bi-Weekly Tease: Music of Torchlight II

    I'm going to cut right to the chase: Today Runic released previews of two songs from Torchlight II! Paired alongside these clips is an interview with the infamous Max Schaefer and Matt Uelmen, two of the biggest names in Diablo history. Here are a clip of the interview, a peak at the youtube video showing the orchestra practicing, and a link to the official site where you can check out the Title Song for Torchlight II:

    Why Slovakia? Tell us about that experience. Any anecdotes about the area?

    Matt: A small team like Runic doesn't have the option of spending hundreds of thousands recording in a place like Los Angeles or London, so the economics are very friendly, even if the dollar is much weaker than the first time I recorded there a decade ago. That being said, Studio One is one of the best rooms in the world, and the players and recording gear were better than ever. Bratislava has changed a great deal in the past ten years. On the bright side, the old town area near the river is in wonderful shape, and I finally got to see it in the summer, which is fun and an excellent alternative to Prague. Either the gloomier, dowdier aspects of post-communist life are much less, or they have successfully pushed that kind of thing out of the central city into places tourists would never go. Of course, the dark side of that is that place has much more of the pre-packaged consumer culture you can find anywhere else in the developed world.

    Be sure to click here for the full interview and the preview of the title music! In two weeks it seems will have the results of Runic's level design question gathering, so stay tuned!

    The music is both anticipatory of what a player encounters as well as of an 'adventuring' type, I find. Love the new music too.
