As Holyspirit, an old damned soul, you must liberate the country from the evil unleashed upon the living.

Posted by feillyne on Jun 7th, 2012

Story synopsis

An old law has always required the Good and Evil have at least one rule in their eternal conflict. They could not directly intervene in the affairs of living entities, acting only by the subtle suggestion and battling within each soul... Egoism, violence, pity and love clashed in the form of thoughts, of dreams, with varied fates.

But one day Evil, which no longer wanted to support the balance, satisfied with the Good, decided to violate the far RESPECTED rule and achieved this in incarnating directly into most living beings vulnerable to his impulses, and, curiously, in some objects. Henceforth Evil began to reign on each of ordinary objects which he took to possession and some become demonic.

Having anticipated this treachery, the Good was not surprised. Renouncing to violate The Law as Evil had done and refusing to sacrifice the good and generous souls, he used a few storms and damned spirits who wanted to redeem themself... considering themself already lost, alone unconsciousness would have to beat the legion that has swept across the world....

Is it just me? Or is this a rip off from Diablo?

It is completely just you. There are a ton of titles in the isometric hack and slash genre.

Titan Quest for example. Gameplay exactly the same, only a different setting (Greek mythology mostly).

We started developing this game five year ago as a joke because we are fan of Diablo and we wanted something in the same spirit but different. We wanted something more like Diablo than Diablo II, more rogue-like with some RP in it.
As we are no professionnal of the video game industry (I'm engineer in automation and my brother is currently studying a master degree in mathematics) we started with something really simple and then we added more and more as we were becoming better in modelling/programmation.

We also have been inspired by Divine Divinity from Larian Studio.

Our storyline is inspired by Christian bestiary like Belial which is also a boss in Diablo III but back then the game has not yet been announced by Blizzard.
