    Torchlight

    http://www.torchlightgame.com/

    Short: Pixar + Diablo = Torchlight
    Long: Singleplayer Diablo 'clone' from some of the developers behind Diablo 1/2 and Mythos. Being released on steam for ~$US20 in around 19 hours.

    KEY FEATURES

    • Randomization – Our level layouts are randomly created, so each adventure is unique. Monsters, treasures, puzzles, and items are also different each time you embark on an adventure.
    • Easy, approachable interface – Torchlight is designed to be easy to play right from the beginning. The intuitive interface gives players easy access to a rich and varied world.
    • Retirement System – Once characters are sufficiently leveled up, they can “retire” and bestow specific benefits and perks to new characters.
    • Pets – Players will choose a pet to accompany them. Pets can level up along with the player, and will help in battle, carry items, and perform a variety of helpful services.
    • Character Classes – Players will create and customize a character and choose an animal companion. Through cosmetic choices, skill path decisions, and the treasures they acquire, each character will be custom-tailored and different.
    • Fishing – Players can take a break from the high-energy pace of adventuring to visit one of the fishing holes and relax and see what they can catch. Fish have interesting benefits for the player and pet, and other rewards can also be discovered
    • Editor – Runic Games is embracing our modding community by providing an editor so our players can create and design their own content.
    Plenty of good press about the game - http://www.torchlightgame.com/press/

    I might have to install steam :D

    Yeah I have been following this one as well. They are going to be releasing it as a demo and then you can purchase the full version from that if you choose to. I will probably give it a crack. Once I am done with Borderlands and Dragon Age :)

    Well they nailed it. Its a cheap and fun dungeon bash very much like Diablo. Has heaps of re-playability... at least until their mmo comes out, which is next year sometime. Currently playing it on my onboard video, so don't need much in hardware. It has a few minor bugs - but not a single showstopper.

    Highly recommended!
