Diablo build for modern operating systems


DevilutionX is a reimplementation of the engine that powers Blizzard's Diablo 1, developed by numerous highly dedicated [contributors]( and by careful and deep analysis of the original game files. It allows you to play Diablo 1 on a wide variety of operating systems, including GNU/Linux.
