Twitch streamer thorlar has been working on this single piece of pixel art in Minecraft since January 5 of this year. Hundreds of hours (and one can presume hundreds of cups of coffee) later, we have this glorious mosaic of Sarah Kerrigan from StarCraft flanked by Deathwing from World of Warcraft on the left and Diablo on the right.

Hey! Hey, Blizzard! Over here! You've got a big fan over here!

Here's the video showcasing the final product:

Diablo is set to make its arrival in an upcoming patch for Diablo 3 called Darkening of Tristram that'll "send you back into the depths of the Cathedral," said Frank Pearce, Blizzard's chief development officer. Darking of Tristram is going to offer a dungeon with 16 levels where you'll face off against four main bosses from Diablo

The game's going to come with visual filters to make it look pixelated and grainy — "we call it 'glorious retrovision,'" said Pearce. In addition, the character movement's going to be restrained to eight directions, just like in the original Diablo.

"It will be a proper old-school Diablo experience," said Pearce, and while it will be available to all current characters, Pearce recommends for players to try it with a fresh character.

Darkening of Tristram is going to be available in Diablo 3's Public Test Realm next week. The original Diablo was released Dec. 31, 1996.
