The other Diablo 3 game

Lore and Story
Have you seen the screens of Blizzard North's version of Diablo 3? Follow this link: http://diablo.incgamers.com/gallery/showgallery.php/cat/600.

Looks cool. Camera angle is too low but the design looks pretty nice and is more remiscent of D2 I think. Several screens seems to take place in Heaven, by the angelic statues. An interesting detail I find is that the statues are depicting angels with human heads. Same with the mana orb in UI which shows an angel with a face, just like in D2. Personally I find it more compelling that angels look human, and Tyrael's faceless appearence in D2 was simply because humans can't fathom the appearence of an angel.
Fascinating stuff, too bad that the devs of D3 choose to make this the standard look of all angels, even their statues in Heaven.
Maybe it doesn't take place in Heaven?

Another Archangel (Hadriel) appeared in D2 and he looked just like Tyrael.
No! A pox on you and your questioning! ;)
Kidding, you're absolutely true about Hadriel :)
That reminds me: have you heard of Curse of Tristram?

It's a recreation of Diablo II on the StarCraft II engine, but the author plans to add an sixth act based on the Blizzard North terrain, should the final stretch goal gets reached.

They have the feathery wings too. Here's an interesting article from Forbes titled "The Diablo 3 that Never Was":
