Here's some of my latest tweets from twitter / facebook with a bit more explanation.

I still have a funny multiplayer bug that lets you run around while dead sometimes, everyone else sees you sliding around in the dead pose. This was pretty funny watching people slide around as dead bodies. This is fixed now though.

I swear our game is plotting against me, I spawn in a gas leak to test out flaming oil, and the world spawns an earthquake and destroys it. This seems to happen fairly often. I cheat to test something and the game responds.

I really like days were I focus on little things, I knocked 60 things off my todo list today. This was last week some time. At the beginning of that day my todo list had 313 items on it. At the end of the day it was down to 247. Today it's at 133.

I actually used a teleport trap to escape some enemies today in Din's Curse. I got mobbed and that was the quickest way out.

It's strange how many bugs you can find when you do weird things like tell the networking system not to send anything more than 2 feet away. In this case, the main thing I found was that I was sending all of the npcs in town across the network regardless of how far away you were.

Changelings disguised as imps on a level where you need to find imp tails for a quest is very dangerous. I was actually trying to kill imps and I ran into 2 changelings at the same time.

I destroyed a cursed gate today by setting fire to a bunch of barrels near it with my flaming sword. I couldn't get to the gate because of the barrels and all of the monsters nearby, so I started a little fire.

A zombie attacked a naga attacking me, the naga turns and kills the zombie, then walks over to use a lifestone, and then it came back to kill me. I was actually surprised that they were fighting in the first place since I was killing everything, so I just sat there and watched. I was even more surprised when the naga walked right by me to go heal and I'm the one that programmed them to do that.

Din's Curse should win pyromaniac's game of the year!

Those events remind me of Nethack which is the game I have played most of all games during my 23 years of gaming. To me that's the highest praise .

I have stated this before and am going to state it again: I can't wait!

One question: Is there a hardcore option in Din's Curse like in DoP?

Yes, but I've dared try the Din's Curse hardcore option. It was so much easier to stay alive in Depths of Peril. At least that's my take on it. Maybe with less bugs and after I master the world setting I might try it, but it won't be soon.

Delilah already answered the hardcore part, but we also have a Cursed mode were you can't equip anything that is not cursed. If you want a real challenge play a hardcore and cursed character.

Nice. I'm thinking about testing a challenge I discovered on Torchlight forums. Dive into the game on hardcore mode the first time you try it. Not that I'm expecting a long run.

The cursed thing might be too much for a first dive
