    Here's my source
    http://www.jeuxvideo.com/articles/0001/00017078-divinity-original-sin-preview.htm

    No its not about dragon commander, nor divinity 3, they are making a new rpg and oddly enough its turn based, falloutesque , and with a real inventory.
    Ill translate you the good parts, you starts with 2 characters, one tortured convict and one resurected woman, you can control both portagonists or invite up to 4 players .
    It seems while your character chat with npc , the other can take the opportunity to sneak in its house.Everything is highly interactive, you can put a bucket on your head ala skyrim or hit enemies with a broom.Aseemble , combine every items, apply poison on your weapons etc.
    You can spellcraft, combine spells , make rain , then use a freeze spell on enemies.
    Quest sytem seems great with several ways to complete quests( 5 to 6 in the demo ), choices and consequences + hero reputation.
    OH! NO LEVEL SCALING! Well seems everything is postive so far , too much to be true, even a quest and level editor, but it seems to exist...I am baffled...

    EDIT: Kickstarter link here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/larianstudios/divinity-original-sin

    Yup according to that preview and if my french is still up to date yes, it is turn based. Not too keen on the visuals though, reminds me too much of kindgoms of amalur which in turn was wow with oblivion levels of bloom. Regardless, I'm excited.

    Wow, that looks like Ultima + Divine Divinity (actually, Beyond Divinity, but that was a weak game), VERY NICE!

    And DKS looks like Gothic x Bloom, but that's not what we love it for.

    If it wasn't for the two facts that a) It's turned-based and b) It's from larian, I'd have overlooked and disregarded this as just another Hack & Slash Akshun RPG.

    Well the first fact is enough because I've never of of a turn based hack and slash RPG.

    Sweet!! :D

    Is this a Kickstarter/crowdfunding, or are Larian funding it themselves, or via a publisher?

    Is it class based?

    Party based? (since it's turnbased, one would assume so)

    Looks a bit too sunny and feel goody though, hopefully this is just the beginning village before it gets swarmed by demons who kill everyone. ;)

    And yes, someone please interview them and ask REAL questions, not retarded shit like "What is your ultimate goal in the gaming industry?"

    So what were you guys saying about no market for real RPGs and Wasteland 2 being the last dying breath of the genre?

  21. Or probably someone at Larian is suicidal. The question is does it backfire at them. I am hopint it does (on the suicidal thing).

    Larian self-publish now. They don't have to answer to anyone and as such they can make lower-budget games that appeal to niche audiences. They have a decently-sized fanbase (mostly in Europe) which help keep them going.

    So again we won't kill Damian? Huge incline otherwise, though.
