"Torchlight" is an action role-playing game developed by Runic Games for the PC, Microsoft Xbox 360 and Mac platforms. PC and Mac versions of "Torchlight" include tools and assets for the creation of game modifications, or "mods," and the "Torchlight" player community offers modifications to change a variety of game settings, such as item attributes, object appearances and equipment availability. Players can install "Torchlight" mods manually or with the use of the TorchLeech mod management program, compatible only with Windows-based PCs. While you can install "Torchlight" mods on both PC and Mac computers, mods developed with PC versions of "Torchlight" may not function properly with Mac versions of "Torchlight."
