Welcome to IGN Unfiltered, our monthly interview series where we sit down with the best, brightest, and most fascinating minds in the video game industry. (Catch up on the other 49-something episodes here.) Our guests this month are Echtra Games's Max Schaefer and Matt Uelmen, both former Blizzard North developers and co-creators of Diablo and Diablo 2 as well as the Torchlight series. The duo shares stories about Diablo 2 in celebration of its 20th anniversary while also discussing how Diablo has helped them make their new game, Torchlight III, the best action-RPG it can be. Check out the episode in the video above, but if you'd prefer to listen to the hour-long interview, here's an audio-only podcast download link. One way or the other we hope you'll check out the interview!
