I backed it, Kirk loves it, now watch me play Larian Studios' successfully Kickstarted take on the old school strategy RPG.
Larian's RPG and the next installment in the Divinity series, Original Sin, has been delayed so that the team can squish some last-minute bugs and record extra voice-overs. The good news is that it's only a ten-day delay—so Original Sin is now set to arrive to PC on June 30.
Larian Studios' Divinity: Original Sin is a love letter to the early days of computer role-playing games, so it makes sense that the game's extremely limited edition (under 1,500 copies) is a love letter to the fans of classics RPGs.
Within the first five minutes of my play session with the alpha version of Divinity: Original Sin, I killed Larian Studios' Swen Vincke. "So I see you are readying a fireball spell," he said, and I shot him. I'm counting that as the first of ten reasons why the Kickstarter prequel to the Divine Divinity role-playing…
Larian Studios teamed up with Let's Play purveyor quill18 to produce this hour-long walkthrough of Kickstarter-funded RPG Divinity: Original Sin's pre-alpha. Looks a lot more like a sequel than the actual sequel—a bit like Neverwinter Nights 2 and the original Divinity had a baby. [Thanks, DSOGaming.]
Larian Studios' Divinity franchise has had an uneven past. The first game, Divine Divinity, was very good, but others have been more mixed.
I've mentioned before that I have a soft spot for Larian's Divinity franchise, dating back to 2003. Their games have never been flawless but, with only one glaring exception, they have been fun. So in a way, I had my fingers crossed, hoping for the best, when I went to their demo room at E3 last week.
European developer Larian Studios has announced the fourth game in their Divinity franchise, Divinity: Original Sin.
Between now and Friday, I'm loading up on every free or borrowed video game-related thing I can to keep me from going out and buying anything before Christmas. The Divinity II demo fills the bill nicely.
In Divinity II, you are a freaking dragon at least half the time. Why should you care about petty mortal concerns like good and evil?
Dragons will sell me almost anything — video games, clothing, you name it. I've got to say, though, I didn't think I'd extend that to letter openers until I saw this.
