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 GoG.com, 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!
We told you last week about the Humble Indie Bundle, now in its sixth iteration. Today, four new games were added, bringing the total to ten games on offer with a pay-what-you-want model that sends the purchase price along to independent developers, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), and Child’s Play, a charity that provides game consoles to children in hospitals.
Armed Heroes may be a decent little game, but it’s also ripping off a better one: Torchlight.
There’s no shortage of under-the-radar games on the iOS App Store that have ripped off some art, an idea, or even an IP from bigger and more successful products, but we haven’t seen a rip-off as shameless as Armed Heroes for a while, which seems to have stolen all of its art assets wholesale from the wildly successful (and wildly addictive) Mac and PC action game, Torchlight.
