The pre-launch developer interview: the independent interviewer’s holiest-of-holies, and this is no exception. This week, Shanghai Six sits down with friend of the show, CEO of Runic Games, Max Schaefer, and their $20 indie darling hack-and-slash click-and-loot fest Torchlight 2. Shanghai asks him what the thought was releasing right on top of the 4-player monster Borderlands 2, how the Runic Games’ office reacted to the surprise ambush release of Diablo 3, and what take away lessons they’ve learned from watching Blizzard flop around following the pay-to-win real money auction house.
