See that image above? Fill your eyes. Cherish it.
Where we're going, the most depraved and desensitized are given cause to shudder.
User "Zerofire" on the European Battle.net brought this evil upon us. His mortal meddling in the demonic world of Diablo 3 has caused a rift, through which unspeakable horror creeps and threatens all.
Read on to see harrowing, unedited footage of Zerofire's discovery...
BEHOLD WHIMSYSHIRE AND DESPAIR!
Ok, so it's not all gloom-and-doom. It's actually a very keen inside joke, for those who remember the first gameplay footage from D3 that dropped long ago. That footage was very... bright and colorful. More WoW than Diablo, really.
The soft pastels and crystalline lighting effects drew much ire from the hardcore Diablo community. Many felt the art direction needed much more Satan.
So, we're given Whimsyshire, a secret area akin to Diablo 2's sadistic "cow" level. It's as close as we'll ever come to a "Hundred Acre Wood" expansion pack.
