Blizzard gave Starcraft II a great map editor. That editor has spawned many awesome Arcade maps and in the case of the Warcraft III editor, it even created the whole MOBA game genre with DoTA. Not to be undone by the past, someone has taken it upon themselves to recreate the original Diablo in Starcraft II and call it "Diablo: Mortal Shroud."

Playing it is pretty simple, you just open Starcraft II, go to the Arcade section and search for "mortal" and select Diablo: Mortal Shroud. The game is already pretty darn great and has the feel of the original Diablo. The mod author is using the original game voice acting, art and play style as the original. The game looks a bit Starcrafty as it is built with the SCII toolset, but there is no mistaking that Diablo feel.

Currently Mortal Shroud supports single and multiplayer. I didn't notice the ability to save your game, but perhaps that will be added to a later version.

Hahahahahahaha We all make mistakes.

I haven't played around with the map editor. I guess this is what you were doing last night when I saw you sign in to I noticed you were in the Starcraft II Arcade.

I haven't seen any updates on this for about a year. Glad to know they're still working on it. It's looking WAY better.
