I don't see any other mention of it, so I figured I'd let everyone know that Torchlight one the Wild Card award in PC Gamer's Game of the Year Awards. Here's what they wrote:
"Nobody saw this plucky action-RPG coming, but when we realized that dozens of hours had disappeared into the bottomless, randomly generated creature-infested mines beneath the quaint fairy-tale town of Torchlight, we knew that we'd stumbled upon one of the games for which 2009 would be fondly remembered."
(PC Gamer Issue 198, P. 63).
Three cheers for Runic! =D
