  • Hands On with Torchlight Frontiers - Gamescom 2018

    Over at Gamescom 2018, I met up with Echtra’s Max Schafer, leader of the team on Frontiers and veteran of the Torchlight and Diablo franchise. While I got to try out the steampunk-inspired golem for myself, I also had to interview Schaefer on the project. You can read some of the highlights in our previous report, but he also had a cavern full of insight to share about developing the class, the content, and the combat for this completely new experience.

  • How Echtra Plans to Make Their Dream MMO ARPG

    What seems forever ago, we talked with Max Schaefer and Runic Games upon the announcement of Torchlight 1, and how the IP’s ultimate goal was to evolve into an MMO. That had always been the goal with the ill-fated Flagship side-project Mythos, but we all know that Flagship never could get Mythos where it wanted to go. Runic wanted to make Hob, and Max still wanted to make that ARPG MMO he’d been dreaming of for years. Enter, Echtra Games.
