  1. It's a fascinating read. To see what would eventually become a classic game, a success like Diablo in its infancy really gives anyone interested in creating using the medium of gaming just alittle more incentive to do so.

    Thanks for posting.

  4. Super interesting! Wow is this the first example of microtransactions for video games? How come you guys didn't do the mini expansion packs? I bet it would have been huge.

  11. Man sooo awesome to see an OG GDD like this! I used to cover my dial up modem with pillows at night so I could sneakily play on Battle.net while my parents were asleep lol.

  12. I noticed it was a planned 12 month dev cycle. That's unreal, when compared to modern games, and unreal when considering how many systems had to be designed for this game. From the dynamic floor generation, to the combat system, to the UI, to the system that determines the shortest route to the clicked square, this game is just impressive.
