Diablo on Speed
7:31 AM | John Telthorst | 2 comments

How long did it take you to beat Diablo, a fews days, a few weeks, a month? Dave Gibbons beat it in a number of minutes, 53.13 to be exact. If you don't believe it you can download the movie for yourself from the Speed Demos Archive In case you want to try your own speed run, Dave includes some commentary on how he pulled it off, here's a snippet:

This is by far the most random game I've ever attempted to speed run. Similar to my Diablo 2 run, I simply played ahead and saved the character files so I had perfect knowledge. I had lucky map layouts, good quests, and good monster combinations overall. The good thing about this method is that in single player Diablo's drop system will give the same items from the same monsters, chests, and book shelves every single time.
You'll need Divx to view the video. If you don't already have it you can download the Mac version from If you've never played Diablo the Battle Chest is available from
