ExileCon 2020: Rhykker interviews David Brevik, Max & Erich Schaefer

Rhykker had the opportunity to interview the founders of Diablo/Diablo II and former Blizzard North members at ExileCon.

It was kinda awkward to see two of them onstage wearing Blizzard Entertainment t-shirts instead of Graybeard Games or Double Damage or Echtra, Inc. ones — the companies they founded separately.

Originally, Diablo was going to be a turn-based video game, but eventualy they built the technology that allowed them to play Diablo the way it turned out. They talked about how Skill Trees were introduced in Diablo, inspired by another video game with tech trees.

They answered questions for over 50 minutes.
