Travis Baldree Will Be Picking Up The Tab For A WhileFrom Joystiq:
Perfect World, a China-based developer and publisher of several MMOs, revealed today it has acquired "a majority stake" in Runic Games for approximately $8.4 million. Runic is the studio that spawned from the ashes of Hellgate: London's Flagship Studios and is best-known for Torchlight, its single-player Diablo-inspired action-RPG.
Travis Baldree is an absolutely phenomenal designer. Fate was brilliant, Torchlight was brilliant, and it's great to see him (and everyone else at Runic) rewarded.
