Torchlight 2, Runic Games' dungeon crawling role-playing game released on September 20th, but players can still test out the game by downloading the free demo.

The PC demo is available on the game's official website, right above the full $19.99 version. In a recent Reddit AMA, Blizzard North founder and Runic co-founder Max Schaefer explained the game's low price.

"We sell for $20 because we want a bigger community, and for people all over the world to enjoy our game," said Schaefer. "Not everyone has $60 lying around. Plus, digital distribution, like on Steam, makes this more economically viable for a company like us."

"We couldn't make money selling $20 boxes only, but we'll do fine with this price because of the trend toward digital distribution," said Schaefer.
