'Torchlight 2' could become more like 'Minecraft' in the future

Torchlight 2 designer Max Schaefer has stated that he hopes in the near future that building tools similar to Minecraft can be added to his game.

In a recent interview with Indie Game Magazine Radio, Schaefer stated that he hopes to see creation tools - similar to those found in Minecraft - added to Torchlight 2 in the near future. However, Schaefer did stress that this is purely a "want" on his part and not currently a plan by Runic Games.
What Id like to see personally is to get the building and resource aspects of Minecraft and put them into an ARPG, just so its a little more than just wandering from one monster to the next and hitting them.

Your character has permanence [in Torchlight 2], but you dont have anything like property or anything that youve built right now in our game that lead to any sense of permanence. So Id like to explore that a little bit.

I think everyone at our office has lots of ideas and if you talked to all thirty of us youd get thirty different visions which is cool. Were a long way from exhausting the possibilities [of the ARPG genre].
