A demo of Torchlight has been released, offering a glimpse at the action in this newly released Diablo-esque game which is currently generating quite a bit of buzz at the moment. The demo is actually just a time-limited version of the full game; it will give you a two-hour taste and then if you get addicted you can just buy a product key which will unlock the full version. A snippet of the story:
The adventure is set in the mining settlement of Torchlight, a boomtown founded on the discovery of rich veins of Ember – a rare and mysterious ore with the power to enchant or corrupt all that it contacts. This corruptive power may have dire consequences however, and players set out into the nearby mountains and depths below to discover the full extent of Ember’s influence on the civilizations that have come before.
