Destructoid - The Origin of Diablo
Destructoid has posted a new article about the orgin of Diablo with quotes from ex-Blizzard members.
Recently, I've been making my way through Stay Awhile and Listen: How Two Blizzards Unleashed Diablo and Forged a Video-Game Empire - Book 1. Considering the game's humble beginnings at Condor, it blows my mind to think about the success the franchise has gone on to have -- to say nothing of its impact on action-role-playing games and our poor fingers.
Ahead of the book's release next month, author David L. Craddock has shared an excerpt with Destructoid that delves into some behind-the-scenes design tidbits. He interviewed 80-plus developers connected to Blizzard Entertainment and Blizzard North for his three-book series. This passage covers quotes from co-founder David Brevik, composer Matt Uelmen, and more.
