We were a little concerned with the limited release plans for Runic Games' ultra-charming Diablo-esque RPG Torchlight, which would've been sold directly through the game's official site on October 27, then on Steam one month later. Fortunately, Runic recently saw fit to strike up a new agreement with Steam, which will now host the game on the day of its release for the budget price of $19.99.

Hopefully having the might of the undisputed king of digital distribution behind its franchise from the get-go will allow Runic to follow through with that Torchlight MMO it's always dreamed of. You know, the one with the isometric white picket fence.
