    In the aftermath of E3 I haven't seen this game mentioned much - basically it looks like Diablo 3 lite - made by the same guys (some ex-Blizzard) who were working on Mythos before that got cancelled, and some of the people who did Fate.

    Anyway it's out in a few months.

    It looks fun and I like the style. Also with me and my fiance having only laptops now, it doesn't look too demanding on the system, and I'm a huge Sucker for Diablo-styled games.

    The MMORPG version won't be for another year or two though.

    The developers say they've had it running well on a netbook (without the graphics at max), so yes, not demanding at all.

    Edit

    Running through with Alchemist. :) 

    Unlike Diablo 2, player can add skill at any skill trees, instead of focusingon just one. Now my alchemist is like a fighter mage. :D 

    The only gripe I have from the game is it gives me Fail Game Creation when I launch it in Steam, when I relaunch again the setting for my resolution was revert to default.

    I'm playing a Vanquisher - I love the Flechette traps (or death sprinklers as I call them), If you've played ARPGs before you should start playing this on Hard - Normal is too easy.

    When you get to the 2nd tileset (the watery one) it's in one of the three portals - it was the middle one for me.

    Whats the most convenient way of downloading this game and from where? I actually doubt this laptop could play it but it looks like a fun game.
