Torchlight breaks 500,000 sold

Runic Games has announced that its budget priced action adventure game Torchlight has surpassed 500,000 in sales as of a few weeks ago and has officially gone Gold. “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.”

Since it’s fall 2009 release, Torchlight had not received much in the sense of traditional marketing though it did get plenty of attention for the release of its mod tools with talks of a Torchlight MMO only getting players more interested. Torchlight is currently on sale at a discount of 50% for both the PC and Mac on Steam.
