    [​IMG]Now here's something to look forward to at GDC next year. David Brevik who's best known for co-founding Blizzard North and now CEO at Gazillion working on Marvel Heroes, will be taking about the original Diablo in a classic game postmortem.

    David will be recounting the development of Diablo and offering "key takeaways from the experience, shedding light on how the game went from a single-player, turn-based claymation DOS game to the genre-defining classic it became."

    The hour long session will take place at GDC in March and it will be great to hear David talk about the development first hand. This is definitely one to watch out for and hopefully it will be released in some form for public consumption after the event.

    I really do most sincerely hope this gets a public release, it must. When I think about D2 these days it still bemuses me how they managed to keep the game in such a unified and functional but expansive structure (trying not to use the words 'game balance').

    It is so tempting when your are playing with the many variables in a game to make one or two stand out. Its like your ego is trying to ruin the game. Either you have the right temperament (or brilliant ideas) for making these sorts of games or you don't imo.

    If a video can't be released could a point based summary of the idea's and thoughts of this dialog be published? Much thanks.
