Shameless Diablo 3 Ripoff “Devilian” Praised, Not Shunned
Under development at Korean games company Ginno Games since 2009, Devilian is more than just a Diablo clone in the Action RPG sense. Visually, it can be mistaken for Diablo 3, with similar settings, battlefields, creatures, graphics, and art direction. That image above that looks strikingly similar to Azmodan?

Now, as expected, many people have reacted negatively to this ripoff. However, many others have not. Diablo 3 failed to meet expectations, and while it isn’t a terrible game, a significant portion of the community is applauding Devilian for seeming like a better game than D3, based solely on the videos we’ve seen.
Here’s the trailer:
