It can be difficult to get gamers to shell out money for a new title that they know nothing about. The best way is to let them try, then buy. In that vein, Runic Games has just made the demo of its recently released Torchlight available on Steam.

Torchlight is an action-RPG (role playing game) PC title, played from a top-down perspective. Most early reviews have compared it to Diablo, saying fans of the game are bound to love this new adventure. In fact, Runic was formed by Diablo veteran Max Schaefer.
Our friendly neighbourhood Wikipedia gives a quick low-down on the plot: “In the fantasy world that serves as the setting of Torchlight, Ember is a mysterious ore which has the power to imbue people and items with magical power. The mining boomtown called Torchlight is built above a rich vein of Ember, and adventurers are drawn there seeking the magical substance and the enchanted items it creates. However, as the player character explores the dungeons below Torchlight, they discover that Ember has a corrupting influence which led to the fall of past civilizations and endangers those who use it in the present. Discovering that the dungeon is a ‘layer cake of ruined civilizations’, the player must delve deep below and eventually face the villain who is the source of the corruption.”
PC World has an awesome article titled ’10 reasons you must play torchlight’.
And before we forget, here’s the quick link to download the Torchlight demo from Steam.
