Torchlight 2 Becomes A Plant In Visualization Video

After almost three years of development, Runic Games has finished work on their action RPG Torchlight 2. To show everyone how complex of a project this was, they've released a video that visualizes the process.

The video uses a tool called Gource. Gource turns a software project into an animated tree. The root directory of a project is at the center, and other directories branch from that. The files then appear as leaves.

"The music is a recently unearthed archaeological selection from the long-distant schoolboy days of a certain Runic Games employee who shall remain nameless to spare he and his cohorts the embarrassment. We welcome your speculation and evidence in the comments," said Runic.

Torchlight 2 expands the action RPG series beyond the small town of Torchlight. Players can now embark on an overland journey that will take them to many diverse environments. T2 offers new enemies, character classes and loot. Also, it introduces co-op for the first time in the series.

The game arrived on the PC on September 20th. It costs $20 to purchase. A free demo is also available if you're on the fence.
