Nox was developed by the Command & Conquer developer Westwood Studios, published by EA and it was a step or two ahead of Diablo in many ways. Then why we still play Diablo, not Nox? Because, EA was always EA.
Nox gives you control over a specific character named Jack who lives in 20th century and accidentaly driven to a different dimension by his TV. He must fight his way back home by defeating necromancers and their armies of the dead. You can choose three different classes; Warrior, Conjurer and Wizard. The class you choose at the beginning of the adventure dictates the abilities and the story at your disposal as you progress.
Here is a trailer of the game. Take a look.
