Nightfalls is a browser based free to play MMO by 37Games. This little gem of a game popped up on reddit. The game features an archangel who falls from heaven and comes down to help the people of this world to defeat the demons.
Her name is Sherri, and she has five followers: Crusader, Warlock, Cabalist, Monk, and Witch Doctor. Their recently released concept art you might find familiar in many ways. Some of these will be blatant, while others will have their own twist, but still have certain art being reused.
The setting also feels familiar to Diablo. Here’s the background from the games facebook page.
A long time ago, the battle between angels and devils was still raging. Archangel Arius fell in love with devil Lilith and defected. This unholy union of angel and devil brought an offspring of humans. Afterwards, angels won the battle with devils and sealed three Devil Kings temporarily with the Sealing Stone. However, angels have differences of opinion on how to deal with human beings. In the Angel Congress, Sherri admitted to protecting human beings and also granted human beings the duty to guard Sealing Stone. The human hero King Lee Twist who had once sealed Devil King was in turn lured by Devil King and proceeded to lose his mind. The Sealing Stone loosened and Angel Congress was disappointed with human beings. Therefore, in order to save human beings, Sherri gave up her angel status and came to the earth to find the Sealing Stone with human beings. At this time, the daughter of Devil King, Sia, found the Sealing Stone and became the new Dark Goddess. Even though Sia was Sherri’s friend, she had to kill Sia. As the one who sealed the Devil King, the fate befell to him and memories of the battle are destined to plague his mind forever.

But what this falls into is this: Is it a Diablo clone or copy? The art above makes me feel like the game will have a diablo clone feel. Sadly no game-play is even shown yet just concept art. While the copy aspect is clearly in the concept art and idea of the followers. I think its a blend of the two with some twists. What do you guys think?Post a Comment »
