    Tags: Divinity: Original Sin; Larian Studios

    As all of you hopefully know by now, the Kickstarter for Larian Studios' turn-based CRPG Divinity: Original Sin has reached its basic funding goal of $400,000 with 16 days still to go. Time to reach those sweet stretch goals!



    Now that we’re funded, we’re going to make every effort we can to reach those stretch goals. We think they’d make a brilliant addition to what’s already going to be a very good RPG, so help us spread the word. Again, everything that’s invested in the game now, ensures that your gameplay experience (and modding experience) will be so much better this fall. Spread the word!

    The update also announces that Paypal pledges are now accepted, and that the game will be coming to Mac and Linux too. Plus there are also some new rewards (incl. a personalized in-game "message in the woods" for a mere $50), add-ons, etc. Check out the latest update in full.

    Grab the Codex by the pussy Divinity: Original Sin Torment: Tides of Numenera Shadorwun: Hong Kong Pathfinder: Kingmaker Pathfinder: Kingmaker
    It's a shame that this team goes into greater detail over what they will actually put into the game than did the team working on the 'spiritual successor to Torment', but receives only a fraction of the excitement of that effort, despite the fact that inXile has yet to put out a good game. Richard Garriot hasn't made a good game in years, but his Shroud of the Avatar reached $2 million.

    Larian Studios has done enough good with its past games and has been open enough with the community that it should have better Kickstarter success than this.

    I totally agree. Perhaps they are not Obsidian or inXile, but their pitch is rock solid. And the only reason for the current situation is that both Obsidian and inXile are playing the nostalgic vibe.

    People's imagination and longing for something seems to be more powerful than seeing something already implemented. Strange albeit a human trait.

    Great timing, just today I could confirm that I would be able to back D:OS after all. And I guess the Codex fundraiser could get a little love too.

    I really hope Larian is able to get a few high exposure interviews, wtf is and let's plays and such, to spread awareness. This really deserves more pledges. Still the timing may have cost them dearly. And many people are simply broke from torment. The 25 I've pledged is 25 more than I should have and no doubt this is the case for many others. Also if you read how they haven't had a dime from div1 and all the bullshit they've had to endure it would really be a shame if they cannot create this with all the bells and whistles it deserves.

    It's what it means...like NPCs sleeping, doing their work, going about their life instead of just sitting in the same spot waiting for you to talk to them.

    ^ Definitely, in fact I'm trying to remember the various forums I've joined throughout the years, logging in and starting new or bumping existing threads in an attempt to get the word out... Sadly, one forum with 1000+ active users and 1500+ guests has only yielded a handful of responses, well at least those were positive.

    -EDIT-

    I know it isn't much, but what the hell. I don't use facefuck or twatter, so this it in terms of going beyond friends and family.

    They are doing really well. I remember at the start, when that graph looked like it was flattening out, but they managed to turn it around. I would love to be a fly on the wall in Larian right now.

    It doesn't look like it'll reach 1 mil at this rate and it's a damn travesty, is what it is. Weather affecting combat sounds fucking amazing.

    I couldn't pledge to the Torment KS because, as poor as we are, my wife and I are getting 2 digital copies to play Original Sin co-op. I would prefer to put down the green through the Codex fund raiser but we need those 2 copies :(

    Hm, I just noticed that TotalBiscuit (Yes, I know, I know) has made a video on Larian's Original Sin and Dragon Commander about a year ago, perhaps he could be persuaded somehow to make a brief update on the subject. That would give Larian some very nice media exposure.

    Wasteland 2 and Torment:ToN is something I would not only like to see, but even to play.
    A bro Sven and the guys at Larian might be, their game(s) and pitch just doesn't 'emotionally engage' me.

    Except Divinity will be more similar to Torment than WL2 would be. The Divinities have been plot-centric games, similar to Torment, whereas Wasteland and the Fallouts have been more open ended and sandboxy. So to say that you are more emotionally engaged by Torment and WL2 reeks of fanboyism rather than any display of story-centric preference.

    Poor choice of words on my side, my attempt at subtle irony obviously failed.
    I don't care about Divinity. The plot/scenario doesn't interest me. Honestly,
    someone takes it serious when you type emotionally engaged. And: In apostrophes?
    The codex must have been hit harder in it's very depths than I supposed.
