    Fmulder spotted a cool video showing off a Starcraft 2 mod that’s been entirely reworked to play like Diablo I.

    It’s an amazing effort; all of the game sounds, monster sounds, and NPC voices have been imported, the D1 UI returns (and looks incredibly small after a month of D3), and the modders have done a good job recreating the look and layout of Tristram and the Cathedral. They’ve even found a way to create random level layouts, in the classic Diablo style.

    This video shows character creation and some early game play, and it’s worth checking out.

    I have no idea if this is anything more than a cool novelty; has anyone played it enough to tell if there’s an actual aRPG feel to the game, and if the items improve, monsters grow more difficult, etc?
