We made this official on a very special episode of “New office move-in day,” putting the finishing touches on the press release as boxes were still being unpacked.

So, yes! It’s official! We can finally say, it’s here! Torchlight for Mac will first launch on Mac Steam at its inauguration Wednesday, May 12. Upcoming, the Mac version will be available in DRM-free box form as well. Huzzah! And yes, if you already bought Torchlight for PC on Steam, you will not be required to re-buy Torchlight for Mac. Double huzzah!

As a special bonus to everyone who has already purchased Torchlight directly from either Runic Games or Perfect World ( as of about 3 PM PST yesterday ) – your unlock key will now ALSO unlock the game on Steam, granting you access to both the PC and Mac versions there. Any individuals purchasing from either Runic Games or Perfect World between now and next Wednesday, the 19th of May at noon ( PST ) will have their keys activated on Steam as well. ( The process will not be immediate, but on the 19th we will submit those keys to Valve ).

This has been a really interesting process that turned out to be much trickier than we’d first expected, and we can’t thank you enough for your patience. We’ve wanted a Mac version of Torchlight from day 1, so this moment is fantastic. You guys seem to be as excited as we are, which is awesome!

Enjoy hack n slashing,

Runic Games. Now on Mac.
