Runic Games co-founders Erich Schaefer and Travis Baldree are both leaving the studio that created Torchlight and Torchlight II. According to a forum post, the pair leave in good stead and will continue working together in new ventures. They have plans to pursue smaller development where, as Baldree put it, they can "wear many, many hats performing many, many different kinds of tasks."
Steam is offering potential players a chance to try out Torchlight II for free this weekend. From now through 1:00 pm PDT (4:00 pm EDT), players can give the game a try and, if so desired, can buy it for a mere $5.00.
Runic has announced that the GUTS game editor for Torchlight II has finally been released. GUTS is the same tool that the development team used to create Torchlight II and allows players to create their own levels, monsters, adventures and more.
