Two of the biggest names behind Torchlight developers Runic Games will be leaving to form their own company, Double Damage Games.

Travis Baldree and Erich Schaefer, co-founders of the little studio that could, announced their departure overnight in a forum post on the official site.

“I’m personally excited – oh, hell, I’m SUPER-STOKED – to be getting back to smaller-scale development, where I can wear many, many hats performing many, many different kinds of tasks,” said Baldree. “Working within the boundaries of limited means and resources is the best fun I’ve ever had, and that sort of work satisfies me in a fundamental way – I can’t wait to be working that way again.”

He added that he was “excited for the world to see the project [Runic Games] are working on now”, and that it would be “spectacular”.

Pity they ruined the game by forcing a 10-mod limit on it.

 

I thought Runic Games was already a smaller scale team?

 

torchlight 2 is a great title on PC

 

exaltedjim,

They are pretty small. I guess he means really really small.
