Runic Games sent out a press release late yesterday announcing that Torchlight has sold over 500,000 copies and that it's the #1 selling game on Valve's newly launched Macintosh edition of Steam. I guess that means that the MMO version is full steam ahead:
(Torchlight) by Runic Games Goes Gold! #1 Game on Steam For Mac
Action-RPG, Torchlight, Sells Half a Million Copies, Bestseller on Steam
SEATTLE--Runic Games, Inc. ("Runic Games"), a specialized developer of PC-based entertainment software in the United States, announced today that their critically-acclaimed ARPG Torchlight bypassed the half a million mark in sales, and officially went Gold. This milestone was achieved just weeks before the release of the Mac version of Torchlight, available now on Steam for Mac.
(We are delighted by the response to Torchlight,) says CEO Max Schaefer. (We'd like to thank the greatest gaming community in the world, Valve, Perfect World, World Domination (Mac port), and all our other distribution partners for making this possible.)
In celebration of the Gold status and the Mac release, Torchlight is currently on sale for $9.95, a savings of 50%. The sale runs through Sunday on Steam. (http://store.steampowered.com/)
