Hi everyone, we hope you had an awesome holiday season filled with spiked beverages and loot!

You may have heard, Torchlight was nominated for a Game Developer’s Choice Award, “Best Debut.” Very exciting, and composer Matt Uelmen will be there in LA for the entire event, representing the team! Fingers crossed for us, it would be fantastic to win. GDC runs March 9 – 13th.

So what have we been up to? We’ve been concepting our next project, which involves more meetings and wiki threads than you’d believe. Still mostly blue sky at this point, but we should have some fun things to share within the next couple months. Also, a big congratulations to Travis and his wife, who welcomed a new baby girl, Emma June, on the 26th! And lastly, a few Runic team members will be travelling to China on business, so we plan to bring you some pictures of the fun and keep you updated.

And, brand new on the site, check out our latest Dev Blog: Meet the Team, featuring Jamus Awesome Thayn!*

Thanks for bearing with us in this quiet period, we’re working hard and hope you’ll love the results!
