As far as Asian production companies go, PW isn't bad. I'm just sick of North American and European developers selling out to Asian production companies becuase it rarely ends well. Who knows though? I guess we'll have to wait and see. I actually enjoy some of PWs titles...

lol, are you people serious? It was gonna be like this since the start, perfect world is simply publishing, they're not gonna interfere with development

but go ahead and ignore these posts and keep posting doom and gloom comments "OMG KOREAN COMPANIES ARE GONNA RUIN THIS BEAUTIFUL DIABLO CLONE" like you have been

also just an FYI hellgate london failed because of the great incompetence of the developers and people like bill roeper

For all the QQers, read this post by devs:
http://forums.runicgames.com/viewtopic.php?p=112827#p112827


This purchase has been planned from beginning as a way to make sure that Runic wont go down during development of TorchMMO and whatever else they will create.


TorchMMo was always intended to be published, run and managed by PWE.

Just like English team of BoI can do pretty much everything they want with game and how they run it, Runic will always have full(and even bigger than in example case) creative control over their games.

Also to note, PW does have developers who work with Runic. This has been known for quite sometime and was talked about when they took the publishing rights. Nothing will change, all this was is a way to get more funding to support them throughout development.

When you're complaining about the in-game cash shop, I won't say "atodaso!" I promise.

Diablo 3 will stomp this into the dirt anyways, so it doesn't really matter.

Sure that would happen, but that's because its blizzard and not because its Diablo.

sure that would happen, if DIII would come out before torchmmo. However we won't be seeing world of diablocraft III in 2010 nor in 2011

Let's face it, there's more Diablo in torchlight than in worlf of diablocraft III where newbie developers base their classes around street fighter games and orc reskins and feathered clowns with bombs fight under the rainbow.


When people will finally realize just how wrong DIII is, torchmmo and its entire community will be waiting for them with open arms.


--------------ontopic----------------

Oh and Runic and PWE have been working together for quite some time.

They are currently helping with English version of Forsaken World and development of PWE's new mmo to come in 2011, Swordsman Online(which will be released at the same time as high-budget wuxia movie by the same novel)

The torchlight community will be waiting for  a long assed time cause cash shop games go right into the  "hell no list"

Besides i own the singleplayer version and besides coping the diable music and dungeon concept, its nothing like any of the diablos i own. Not even close.

Every dungeon crawl has a mana and health meter..

 

Torchlight is more like a "Dungeon Runner"  rip off... And dungeon runner was made by ncsoft. Except NCsoft did a better job.

Enjoy defending a game that has a wanna-be identity complex.. Torchlight devs should stop riding diablos jock and get thier own style... whats wrong ? Cant hang with the big boys?

Comical

OH but they do have their own style. The style that left Diablo franchise when the original makers left blizzard, which resulted in, ultimately, creation of World of Diablocraft III and the awesomeness known as Torchlight.


Oh wait....you were trollin' weren't you? Please don't mind me, go on, go on :)

Well I thought you comments were a bit comical too.  I mean come on, Dungeon Runners was complete junk, every instance a 20x20 grid, how boring, at least Torchlight is fun and far better implemented.

Perfect World has decent support, I have not seen spammers or bots running around in their servers.  NCSoft could learn some lessons from them.

We will just have to wait and see what they come up with for the MMO before criticizing it.

Official Response by Max Schaefer posted on runic games forums:



This development is the culmination of a long and well-planned partnership with Perfect World. We selected Perfect World among other partners, including major US Publishers, because they are exactly the right partner for Runic Games going into the future. As we move into developing multi-player games with more sophisticated communities, business models, and for a global market, it is vitally important for a company like us to forge a strong partnership with a publisher that is experienced and successful in operating large-scale PC games, managing communities, and basically handling all the crazy logistics that we are not experts in. From their perspective, we bring a fresh game design sensibility, and a western take on game design as they globalize their business. Most importantly, the guys at Perfect World are gamers and good people - we've been working with them for a long time now, and we feel our talents and goals mesh perfectly. So we're very happy at Runic Games to make this all official. This will do nothing but help our game development, and allow us to focus on what it is we do best.

This isn't true. Somewhere, someone made a mistake when posting this, then a bunch of other sites copied it, and then bigger sites like this one appear to have thought they missed something and posted it as if it was true. Here's a Perfect World employee verifying that Runic isn't involved:

All of the translation and localization of Forsaken World is being done in our San Francisco office, as well as our Beijing headquarters. Runic is not involved
