You can find it here.

And read more about this release here. Players can choose to play either the original version of the game or an updated one.

Really cool to see this - I played this for hours when it was first released in 1996. yes wave

Best news ever! Thank you so much for posting this. I'm off to check it out! Hopefully, Diablo II and the Lord of Destruction expansion pack will be available soon too.


In my PC corner for the winter, my little heater by my side, to game, read and knit.

You're welcome! Word is that Warcraft 1 and 2 will be up next, but maybe at some point in the future we will also be seeing Diablo II and Lord of Destruction. My jaw dropped when I saw this release this morning!

I was in my 60's when I first played it and I would have thrown a tantrum too!

Downloading this is pretty much a win-win situation. The added income for GOG might help them a little through this sketchy economic time they are apparently having, and another generation is getting a "foot in the door" to a retro hack n slash RPG. As far as introducing this to kids, my theory is that, yes they could be doing more productive things, but they could also be doing worse. Just set the expectations right away, the right kind of communication can work wonders with kids and adults. Now, leave me alone, I've got some Diablo to play! evil

My first game of this type so glad to experience it all over again.
Thanks for the heads up


Quantity has a quality all of its own

Wait, GOG are having tough times? Here, let me get my wallet. There has to be a game or two I really, really have to have.


No fancy-pantsy Elven dagger-twirlers. Just tough guys.
