A couple of months back we posted a short video showing some gameplay from The Curse of Tristram, a Diablo 2 style game being created via modding the Starcraft 2 game engine. The project has progressed since then, and today the first trailer has been released.
It shows gameplay action in several different environments nicely modeled after D2 areas, including the Act One caves and surface areas, plus the Act Five snowy ruins you see in the screenshot. There are even UI windows just like those from Diablo 2, with customizable classic four attributes, skill trees with skill points, etc. Check it out, The Curse of Tristram Trailer: SC2 Modding.
I don’t know if it’s actually any fun to play, and it would be nice if they could get the movement speed to match the frantic leg motion, and that Starcraft futuristic font has to go. Still, to paraphase the saying about how you feel watching a bear ride a bike or a dog walk on its hind legs, “It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all.”
