Max Schaefer of Runic Games says he hopes to bless action-RPG Torchlight II with a set of creation tools not dissimilar from Mojang's Minecraft. He'd love the "building and resource aspects" to translate.

It would make the ARPG experience more than "just wandering from one monster to the next" and smacking them on the head. Schaefer wants a greater sense of permanence.

The studio won't be leaving the ARPG arena as it's their "sole marketable skill" among the team. The early success of Diablo 1 "sort of stuck" with the veterans, but now they want a "twist on it".

During an AMA session on Reddit, Runic co-founder Max Schaefer said it was $20 "because we want a bigger community," and the game's digital release makes it "economically viable", unlike retail.
