Over the weekend, word of Diablo III‘s secret level hit the Internet. And it was very strange indeed. As you can see above, the so-called “Whimsyshire” portion of the game allows you to hack and slash teddy bears, flowers and unicorns. (As for the happy clouds, it’s probably safe to assume that these are a tribute to the late, great Bob Ross). The above video explains the method behind game developer Blizzard’s madness here and how this colorful chaos is the logical extension of their previous Cow Levels. Hmm. Good clean fun or a subtle indictment of Brony culture? You decide. (Via The Mary Sue)
