Ah, the failed-mobile-MMO-crawling-back-to-Steam that mislead (apparently) thousands of Torchlight I & II into thinking this would actually be a third Torchlight…

The fact that I recently replayed Torchlight II on Switch and still absolutely love the game, am in-between games right now and STILL can’t manage any F’s to give … pretty much tells me where this thing is at. Pretty sad, really.

Is that the story behind it's development?
If so, I hope for its success, developers turning away from mmo trash should be applauded!

Yep that's the story. It was originally announced as a F2P game but midway through development the developers changed course. In this case it was not a good idea.

As the game still plays and feels like a F2P MMO in SP mode.

Played the first game up to the final boss and thought it was a decent Diablo clone. Tried to get into Torchlight II, but I was a little burned-out on that type of gameplay by then.

I enjoyed Torchlight 1 well enough, the sequel had a harder time getting hooks into me. Not sure why, but it just didn't.

Word on Torchlight 3 is that its twice the price of 2, and not nearly as good. The remnants of the F2P MMO are still there. Wait for deep sale I'm guessing.

I didn’t really like T1 but found T2 to be an enjoyable arpg, if somewhat lighter fare than diablo, grim dawn, path of exile, etc. I have been somewhat looking forward to T3 but don’t find the character class options or design appealing AT ALL! I tend to prefer melee focused sword/board classes in games like this. So my optics are a tank/robot or a 2-H train enthusiast? Not really my cup of tea…

Might play it some day, if only for the Forged class.

There's a bunch of very valid criticism for Torchlight 3.

But it's vastly better that Torchlight 1. Much less wonky, better quality of life, character building (talking mechanics here, not story-wise character building ).

Admittedly, this is a fairly low bar to clear, from the perspective of current-day standards.
