Welcome to my online portfolio.  My name is Patrick Blank, and I have 12 years experience in the gaming industry in the field of level design. I wear many hats during development. I am currently the lead level designer at Runic Games in Seattle, WA currently working on Hob. My past games include: Torchlight II, Torchlight, Borderlands, Aliens,  the Brothers in Arms series, and yes, even a Postal game…

Hob has been announced!

Making the World of Torchlight II

As part of our Torchlight II media reveals we have been doing the past few weeks, I was asked to do a short article explaining a bit about what to expect from the different types of areas in Torchlight II, how they are technically different from each other, and how the environments compare to the first Torchlight game. Also at the end of the article is a link to a Q&A the Art Director, Jason Beck and myself conducted from fan questions on our forums. Click the image below to jump to the link. Enjoy.
