All that hard work...

Paid off! My armor design was selected by Runic Games to be a collectable armor set in the upcoming game Torchlight II! It was announced today on Torchlight's new website.
After they finish the 3D models, they'll send me some shots of the final model that will be in the game.

Here are some shots of my armor in the game. They had to make a few changes-- namely taking the horns off the side of the helmet to reduce clipping with the shoulder armor, and thigh armor was turned into a set of faulds around the waist. I'm very happy with their modifications and how closely they translated my concept into the game. I know individual pieces of my armor will look strange combined with others, but hopefully players will think it's cool (and powerful) enough to try to collect the full set.

Can't wait to see it in action!
I participated in Torchlight II's closed beta, and was thoroughly impressed with it. They're nuts for keeping the same price of $20 as their original game. But I won't complain.
It seems to me that the hype around Diablo III died down fairly quickly-- so here's hoping that Torchlight II has a strong debut.
