Diablo III lead designer talks about artBy Justin Mann
For all eager Blizzard fans looking forward to Diablo III, some more nice tidbits have been revealed by Jay Wilson, lead designer for the game. In a recent interview, he talked a lot about the new art style used in the game and how it impacted the design. He talks about criticisms, primarily how many were worried it would resemble World of Warcraft too much, thus ruining the dark and creepy atmosphere of Diablo 1 and 2.
He mentioned, for instance, how much more gruesome they can and will be with a series like Diablo, as opposed to the more "family-friendly" WoW. If you're a fan of the Diablo series it's unlikely you've been disappointed by each successive release in the past, and I feel confident that Blizzard can deliver again in the next installment.
