Torchlight Is Free For 48 Hours, Kicks Off #noDRM Summer Sale At


If you haven’t played Torchlight, yet, you’re missing out. It’s essentially a Diablo-style dungeon crawling hack n slash game, which is no surprise considering that Max Schaefer and Erich Schaefer, co-designers of Diablo and Diablo II, were on the team that made it.

Today, and for the next 48 hours, Torchlight is free to download and own on, formerly known as Good Old Games, one of the best ways to get older games for your Mac without any digital rights management (DRM) mess.

That’s some seriously worth it for a download, but wait, there’s more! is putting over 500 games on sale during the summer. Titled The #noDRM Summer Sale, you’ll be able to grab over 150 games at up to 85 percent off in the daily deals going on all season long, running from now until July 5, 2013.

To grab Torchlight for free, simply hit the Torchlight page on and sign in to your account. As long as you finish your “purchase” for $0.00 before Thursday the 20th of June at 12:59PM GMT, you’ll get it for free.

In addition to the free download of Torchlight for Mac today, you can grab of’s Dungeons and Dragons titles at up to 90 percent off, like Baldur’s Gate 1 & 2, Neverwinter Nights 1 & 2, Planescape: Torment and more. You can get the same deep discount on Alan Wake and Alan Wake’s American Nightmare. With all of these downloads, you’ll get cool extras like digital manuals and original soundtracks, all DRM free. Unfortunately, as commenter univac points out below, the D&D games are all Windows only, so you’ll need to run Boot Camp or Parallels on your Mac to play them.

    Except for the fact that all the D&D games are Windows only…ugh.

    From the article: “Unfortunately, as commenter univac points out below, they’re all Windows only, so you’ll need to run Boot Camp or Parallels on your Mac to play them.”

    To be clear: Torchlight is Windows & Mac

    Also, there are many discounted Mac games, plus several free.

    I would say, no reason to complain at all.
