Hey guys! My name's David, and I'm a student of animation and videogames.

I'm working on a project about Diablo, and I need some help with my research. The objective of my work, is comparing Diablo (a 90s game) to Path of Exile, a newer indie game, that's similar to Diablo.

I need to know how many sales did Diablo got, the mecanics used in the game and the animation tecniques that were used.


My head is about to explode with so much i work i have to do for my course, and getting this info would be AWESOME and save me a ton of work.



Thanks in advance guys

Brevik's "post mortem" of Diablo, I believe he talked some about the animation process. Probably some other information in there that you might find useful. Sales information should be easy to find from google and/or wikipedia.

Hi, David.

I've got 5,000 hours in Path of Exile and probably 4x that in Diablo.

If you want, you can message me on Skype mr.mattgriffin (Sebree, Kentucky)

Wasn't that supposed to be the spell that swapped your maximum HP for the monsters maximum HP or something?

Well, yeah, Brevik talked about it, but we have no evidence game file-wise that would point out how its icon looked and stuff. It would appear that it's not just disabled but completely removed. An example of a different case is etherealize, a working spell that even fits the last slot on page 4 but can't be learnt and never occurs on staffs or scrolls. Maybe it is supposed to drop in some way at very high nonexisting monster levels? Would like to know, but some very sick reverse engineering would have to happen.
