About the Game

Welcome to Torchlight! A boom town founded on the discovery of rich veins of Ember, a rare and mysterious ore with the power to enchant or corrupt all that it touches. Emboldened by its power, legions of twisted creatures have begun to swarm up from the tunnels and caves below town. Explore the depths, collect loot, and level up as you save Torchlight – and possibly the world.

Critical Reactions

"Runic Games delivers pure, perfectly paced loot-driven euphoria."


"Torchlight is a vibrant, fun, steampunky world, and exploring it is an absolutely addictive pleasure."


"[A] sprawling, ambitious game that does one thing very, very well. It gives you a world you'll want to explore, filled with enemies you'll love to destroy."


"Grab the game, grab some friends, and get to clicking."


"It's got heart. Moxie. It's the scrappy underdog that everyone wants to love, and it just so happens to be the best Action RPG I've played in years."


"Holy f--- I love this game."

-Gabe, Penny Arcade


Merchants prize it for trade...

...enchanters distill it for magical energy...

...but a shadowy few crave it for the lure of unsurpassed power.

Miners burrowed deep beneath the dirt streets of Torchlight, discovering veins of the ore richer than any found in living memory, but they were not the first to covet these mines. The miners broke into the buried past, a dangerous labyrinth of caverns and ruined civilizations, twisted creatures and the bones of those who came before. Evil bubbles up from the depths and threatens to overrun this town as it has so many others. To survive, the townspeople must break the cycle of destruction; they need a champion who can destroy the evil at its root. Removing the source of the rot may purify the Ember, but it is a long and perilous journey. The champion must battle through rock and fire, through lost cities and ancient tombs, into the palace of pure evil itself. Are you up for the challenge?

Character Classes

The Alchemist did not necessarily come to Torchlight for adventure and heroism. Ember is a cornerstone of his magical art, and the beleaguered town sits atop the largest cache of this magical mineral ever found. To save it, he may have to save everyone. By channeling the power of Ember, the Alchemist is able to dispatch enemies from afar as well as summon minions to his aid. But his connection to the Ember also makes him uniquely vulnerable to its corruption.

Will the power of Ember be the tool of his triumph or cause of his doom?
