Torchlight game

This is a game I've been playing for awhile now and has got to be one of the most enjoyable action-based hack and slash RPGS I've ever encountered. Created by the original creators of the Diablo series Torchlight sets an adventure in a mining settlement, nearby mountains and depths below open to discovery.

Players will choose from among three character classes, and venture from the safety of the town of Torchlight into randomly generated dungeon levels, with a huge variety of creepy monsters, endless variations of loot to find, and quests to complete. The endless randomization ensures a long-lived gameplay experience.

What is even more interesting is that the game has been created with the open source 3D graphics engine OGRE, with very impressive results, including a very unique stylised, almost painterly rendering style (albeit with a slight and non-intrusive touch). Well worth checking out to either gauge the capabilities of OGRE or if you simply cannot wait for the Diablo III release.
