It's about $20 or €14,39. It's a singleplayer game but it's cheap and looks to have great gameplay.

Very low system requirements, possible to play on Netbooks f.e.

I like it, I am most likely buying it given it's price and play style.

You don't like the style? I think the art design is quite good.

Given the low specifications I believe they made it cartoony because it looks better in those conditions.

I don't mind cartoony, I just... don't like the art. Not sure why.

IMO, the world looks a hell of alot like Diablo 3, heck that very first scene in the youtube video is like a direct C+P from Diablo 3, the scene in the crypt type place.
Overall it looks ok, though the animation is a little rough, the only thing I dont like is the actual characters, they are cartoony, but not in a good way, though honestly im getting tired of all the cartoony graphics of late, the only cartoony game Ive really liked the look of is Team Fortress 2, all others, especially this type of game, seem to mimick what Blizzard has done with WC3/WoW/D3, in the same way Battlefield Heroes has created a horrible copy of TF2 style

Honestly, this game seems more of a Fate clone than Diablo clone. Actually, it basically is a Fate clone. Fate is all singleplayer(like Torchlight), you have a pet(like Torchlight), you can change your pet into different animals by feeding it fish(like Torchlight), your pet holds your inventory and can sell for you(like Torchlight), all levels are ever changing(like Torchlight), the graphics are 100% cartoony (like Torchlight). Yea the game has Diablo 2's controls scheme, but so does Fate. This is completely a Fate clone.

Which isn't bad necessarily. I bought Fate when it first released for around $5 bucks(before it was even heard of by anyone). It gave me plenty of hours of enjoyment. The game does eventually get a bit stale, but still worth the money.

I'm on the fence as to if I will buy this. No multiplayer means I can't play with friends, but it also means I can play casually and leave whenever I want without feeling guilty. Due to the baby, I've told myself I'm not going to play an online RPG again for a very long time due to time constraints.

Well it is not surprising it looks like Diablo II, Mythos and Fate. Because there are key people from those games working on Torchlight. Heck, it would not surprise me if Torchlight has more people that worked on D2 than D3 has.

And as I said, the cartoony style is probably a choice to make it look more acceptable with the low demands the game has. Look at the specs I posted, they are ridiculously low. A game trying for a more realistic style would probably not look as good because realistic demands a certain level of detail by standards today.
