Happy Friday! A week ago today, we were at PAX East, as many of you were! We were showing Torchlight II in the NVIDIA PC freeplay area, and we had a couple very fun reveals. The first one was the addition of the much-requested "Falcor" pet.
Most of our community know Falcor as the little black and white dog that posted his "day in the life" back during development of Torchlight, and has popped up in nearly every dev diary video. Falcor technically owns Wonder, but he has been an office dog since the Mythos days and was raised by everyone at Runic Games. Falcor makes his digital debut as the model for the papillon pet in Torchlight II. Take a look at how animator Matt Lefferts captured his personality!
Chat more in our forums about the new addition!

Just played some Torchlight 2 at the @RunicGames booth. On a related note, my clicking finger aches with joy.— Shaun McInnis (@smcinnis) April 6, 2012
@RunicGames thanks NVIDIA, because of you, I got to see not only one of the most anticipated games, but, one that lives up to the hype!— Darksaintproductions (@Vaudvillany) April 8, 2012
