UPGRADING FROM PREVIOUS VERSIONS
IMPORTANT: This if a FULL REINSTALL. The packaged files for this version changed entirely to improve loading times, so a full reinstall is necessary. If you are upgrading, you will need to uninstall your previous version.
You will be prompted to re-enter your key when you launch this version in order to unlock it; if you have already activated your key on a previous version of the game, we have reset the count of used activations to compensate for this, so please re-enter your key.
BACK UP YOUR SAVE GAMES! Your uninstaller may ask you if you want to delete your save games. Make sure that it is UN CHECKED!
If you want to be extra safe, you can manually back up your saves - I'd recommend this. Better safe than sorry! To manually back up your saves, please follow the steps below:
- Open your "Start Menu" and click "Run" - Type in %appdata% and click "OK" - In the folder that opens up, browse to Runic GamesTorchlightSave and copy all of the files in that directory into a backup folder on your computer

Word of Ember blazed across the land, and the town of Torchlight flared to life.
Ember is the essence of magic and the keystone of alchemy; it lures the restless with promises of power and riches. Miners burrowed deep beneath the dirt streets of Torchlight, discovering veins of the ore richer than any found in living memory- but they were not the first to covet these mines. The miners broke through into the buried past, a dangerous labyrinth of caverns and ruined civilizations, twisted creatures and the bones of those who came before. Evil bubbles up from the depths and threatens to overrun this town as it has so many others. The heart of a villain has infused the Ember, and his darkness seeps through the veins. To survive, the townspeople must break the cycle of destruction; they need a champion who can destroy the evil at its root. Removing the source of the rot may purify the Ember, but it is a long and perilous journey. The champion must battle through rock and fire, through lost cities and ancient tombs, into the palace of the villain himself.
The adventure is set in the mining settlement of Torchlight, a boomtown founded on the discovery of rich veins of Ember � a rare and mysterious ore with the power to enchant or corrupt all that it contacts. This corruptive power may have dire consequences however, and players set out into the nearby mountains and depths below to discover the full extent of Ember�s influence on the civilizations that have come before.
Randomization � Our level layouts are randomly created, so each adventure is unique. Monsters, treasures, puzzles, and items are also different each time you embark on an adventure.
Easy, approachable interface � Torchlight is designed to be easy to play right from the beginning. The intuitive interface gives players easy access to a rich and varied world.
Retirement System � Once characters are sufficiently leveled up, they can �retire� and bestow specific benefits and perks to new characters.
Pets � Players will choose a pet to accompany them. Pets can level up along with the player, and will help in battle, carry items, and perform a variety of helpful services.
Character Classes � Players will create and customize a character and choose an animal companion. Through cosmetic choices, skill path decisions, and the treasures they acquire, each character will be custom-tailored and different.
Fishing � Players can take a break from the high-energy pace of adventuring to visit one of the fishing holes and relax and see what they can catch. Fish have interesting benefits for the player and pet, and other rewards can also be discovered
Editor � Runic Games is embracing our modding community by providing an editor so our players can create and design their own content. The editor will be available as a separate download from Torchlightgame.com
