Playing the RPG Game Torchlight on 3D Vision Equipped PC

December 13th, 2009 · No Comments · Stereo 3D Games


The game Torchlight is an action RPG for PC made by Runic Games – a team of people that previously have worked on games like Diablo, Fate, and the never-released Mythos among other games. The story of the game is set in the mining town of Torchlight, where players will adventure to uncover the mysteries of the Ember mines. Torchlight has 3 different characters to choose from and offers a fully featured character leveling system, randomized dungeons, hordes of monsters, and gobs of great loot. Torchlight is currently being sold for $19.95 USD. The system requirements for the game are quite low, meaning that it can be played even on a netbook, but of course having a faster PC will help you get the most out if it. The game also has a demo version that is time limited to 2 hours of play…


What you can notice at first when you run the game in stereoscopic 3D mode with 3D Vision is that it looks quite good by default, although there is no predefined profile for the game available. You can increase the depth level even near the maximum and still being able to play in stereoscopic 3D, something, that still cannot be done in most games.


Taking a closer look you’ll notice some details, like the cursor not being rendered in S3D mode and also some texts being displayed over the battlefield seem to be too much in front as is the situation with the HUD. But playing with a normal depth level that should not be a bother for you as the depth is not too much to make it troublesome for your eyes to see both types of objects – the ones in front and the more deeper in the screen ones. As you probably guessed already by default the convergence level offers good depth and no pop-out effect, although you might notice some in the model of your character on the inventory screen.


Another thing you might notice is there is a little bit of ghosting around some lights, but nothing significant to bother you too much while playing. All in all the game Torchlight is very good in Stereoscopic 3D mode and it is quite fun to play, especially if you are a fan of Diablo and other similar games. And there are already some news that there will also be a MMO game developed that will be based on Torchlight in near future by Runic Games, so maybe it will be even better when played in S3D mode.
