The Short of it, Downloads, Reward Matrix, Articles, 6666, GOG

"Ooooh, we're three fourths theeee-eeere, wooo-oo..."

75% funded!!!! Wow! Who would’ve thought we’d hit 75% that fast? Several days ago, we were making contingency plans on how we’d deal with a failed Kickstarter campaign, but you really are a fantastic crowd! A warm thank you from all of us to all of you!

To celebrate the occasion, there will be two updates today. This is the first :)

In this update:

- The Short Of It: Kickstarter Presentation Compressed To 1 minute 30 seconds
- Downloadable Downloadity: Avatars. Wallpapers.
- Reward Matrix: For Spreadsheet Fans
- Campaign Propaganda: The Media About This Kickstarter
- 6666
- GOG.com Confirmed For Original Sin And Dragon Commander

The Short Of It

A lot of people told us that our Kickstarter movie was too long and that a shorter version would help in spreading the word. We listen to what you say, so here it is: the 1:30 minute version of our Kickstarter movie.

Spread it please. As much as you can. We’ll reward you with a great RPG.

Downloadable Downloadity

You want it, you got it: we posted some avatar icons which you can use to customize your portrait here on Kickstarter or on other forums. We also posted two cool wall-papers. Click the links to have a look, and we hope you find at least something to your liking. Look, here's one of them. Completely totally randomly picked. (Well, no, it's my personal favourite really.)

Reward Matrix

After updating the rewards and the tiers, we decided to make a visual representation so that we would know at least what to pop in everyone's virtual or physical box. Then we realized this may also be handy for you guys ;-)

Note: image sizes here are constrained. Bigger JPG files available here (digital) and here (physical).

    1. Creator Richard Field on April 5, 2013

      @Larian Studios LLC - Oops...sorry about that! Just checked the homepage and there is indeed a list of add-ons at the very bottom of the page.

    2. Creator Iskhiaro - Weresheep of Sin on April 4, 2013

      I've upgraded from the $40 tier to the $65 tier after confirmation that we get 2x OS and 1x dragon commander.

    3. Creator Matter on April 4, 2013

      I don't think I understand the "we're waiting for GOG pre-orders before adding Dragon Commander as an add-on" logic. The only reason to wait would be if something was not definite about that option, otherwise just put it in now and sort it out later (right?). Maybe I haven't had enough caffeine yet to see... I'm not saying necessarily that I'd upgrade, but I'd definitely be more interested if I could get that at a higher tier (currently at 65).

    4. Creator ekster on April 4, 2013

      @Dan Yup, David confirmed it below... we get 2 copies of Original Sin plus 1 copy of Dragon Commander.

    5. Creator Dan. L. on April 4, 2013

      In the digital chart where is there a "2x" in "The game" reward row for pledges 40 and up? I am currently pleding for 65. Does that mean I'll get 2 copies of the main game?

    6. Creator Roman - Jagged Weresheep of Sin on April 4, 2013

      Let's get physical physical!

    7. Creator Stabbey on April 4, 2013

      @Edgardo - That will happen after GoG starts taking pre-orders for Dragon Commander in about a week.

    8. Creator LordCrash - OD | OOoE | WoOS on April 4, 2013

      Hm, I can't listeing to Olivia Newton-John because the German gema wants to cash up for it.... :(

    9. Creator Edgardo- WeresheepMonkey of Original Sin on April 4, 2013

      I'm @ the $65 Dragon Commander Tier, and I really want to move up to the $95 boxed version, but there is no Dragon Commander there. Any chance you guys will add Dragon Commander as an add-on? Then I'd move to the $95 tier and add Dragon Commander as an add-on. That would make me very happy. :-D

    10. Creator Tom Vanassche on April 4, 2013

      @Helena, thank you for the tip, much appreciated! Hadn't read that update yet.

    11. Creator Larian Studios LLC on April 4, 2013

      @All: We actually already included add-ons (on the main page), but I guess we need to make them more prominently visible.

    12. Creator Helena on April 4, 2013

      @Tom: you can add an extra digital copy of the game by adding $20 to your pledge (see update no. 1).

    13. Creator Richard Field on April 4, 2013

      To encourage some people to give you more money have you thought about having certain items as separate add-ons, e.g. a copy of Dragon Commander?

      You could then have an add-on page as a separate update which includes all the items people might want. Then get them to stick to their desired reward level, but up their pledge amount and after the Kickstarter ends you could set up a website for people to redeem their add-ons. This way, you get more money and people have more control over what they get...everybody wins!

      Check out Kickstarters like Project Eternity for an idea as to how to implement this.

    14. Creator Jalister - OOoE / WoOS / SoSR on April 4, 2013

      @Larian - Since you are in communication with GOG, can you see if they will also carry the Linux versions if they become available. I know GOG does not officially support Linux right now, but maybe they would still be able to unofficially host them also. I'd rather not use Steam for my DRM free titles.

      Project Eternity, Torment, and Divinity have Linux versions now. All three will be hosted by GOG. They really need to support Linux, even if only on a basic level.

    15. Creator Brian Young on April 4, 2013

      Great update, that newly condensed video will help a lot, I think. (Also, secret new Avatar test!)

    16. Creator Megazver on April 4, 2013

      Actually, someone already uploaded the new trailer as well:

      http://www.reddit.com/r/Games/comments/1bnqat/divinity_original_sin_just_reached_300k_on/

      Upvote this too.

    17. Creator Tom Vanassche on April 4, 2013

      Is it possible to combine two tiers? For example the $150 tier and a $25/$35 tier?

      I'm very interested in the $150 tier (to complete my Larian "limited edition box" collection, Belgian pride!), but then I'd lose one of the 2 digital downloads of the $40 tier pledge I already made.

      I'm guessing this isn't possible without making 2 kickstarter accounts, or am I wrong?

    18. Creator Megazver on April 4, 2013

      I've put up the Eurogamer article on Reddit:

      http://www.reddit.com/r/Games/comments/1bnq12/divinity_original_sin_could_be_the_most_polished/

      Upvote for more visibility, guys.

    19. Creator Robert Baratheon on April 4, 2013

      LOL @ that video. Congratulations Larian, you've convinced me to upgrade to the $65 tier.

    20. Creator Roq on April 4, 2013

      Great short video. And I Just love that theme music.

      + Everyone should go to you tube and press the like button, of course.

    21. Creator Olauron - Obsidian Order on April 4, 2013

      @ Larian
      Hi! In your previous update you have said the following: "If you pledge $75 and up, you will receive the digital artbook and a digital version of the map along with your rewards". But in the matrix the digital artbook is available to $75 reward only. What is correct?

    22. Creator Vincent V. on April 4, 2013

      Well it does make sense. The only difference between $50 and $65 tier digital, is basically you get DC added for $15. But I'll add some beer money for you guys since this is a really great deal ;)

    23. Creator ekster on April 4, 2013

      Awesome, thanks for confirming. I imagine a lot of people will be increasing to this tier then... that deal is too awesome! :)

    24. Creator Larian Studios LLC on April 4, 2013

      Official: the $65 digital reward tier is 2x DOS + 1x Dragon Commander.

    25. Creator JonNik on April 4, 2013

      Very good video. This should definitely work as KS teaser. Nice job!

    26. Creator Larian Studios LLC on April 4, 2013

      Ekster: I need to double-check this with Swen... Maybe I answered too fast.
      -David

    27. Creator Lord Panda on April 4, 2013

      I'll be upgrading to the $65 tier.

      2 x DO:S + 1 x DC = no-brainer.

    28. Creator Tobi (Crusader Kickstarter pls!!) on April 4, 2013

      ok, so in celebration of this wonderful event (and after checking the $ to € exchange rate) i have upped my pledge to get a boxed copy of the game, w00t!!
      (it would be great though if you could send the box from europe, first because of postage, second because of delivery time and third, very important: because of import taxes and customs... i don't want the package to sit at customs for several weeks) - anyway, congrats on hitting the 300k mark :)!

    29. Creator ekster on April 4, 2013

      Ah, just noticed your answer below. Awesome, I will be moving up to that tier then! :)

      You guys should change this image though, or people might get confused:
      https://s3.amazonaws.com/ksr/assets/000/460/273/e5fd3313f65a0818dfa9ce23257d7add_large.jpg…

    30. Creator ekster on April 4, 2013

      Just to make sure, the $65 Dragon Commander actually contains two Original Sin and the Dragon Commander game?

      Looking at the main page, the graphic on the main page, it says only one Original Sin and 1 Dragon Commander....

      If its' really 2 Original Sin and 1 DC, then I will be definitely moving up to that tier!

    31. Creator Dablue on April 4, 2013

      You guys got a sence of humor thats for sure!.. lets get physical! (which i did with my tier ;p)

    32. Creator Larian Studios LLC on April 4, 2013

      @ Galaad : we will add Dragon Commander as an add-on as soon as Dragon Commander pre-sales go live.

      @ Vincent : yes.

      @ Twinchenzo : thanks, I'll see if I can still change it :)

      -David

    33. Creator Galaad on April 4, 2013

      Just thought I'd mention, but I would like to up my pledge without losing Dragon Commander. I think it'd be great if some of the higher tiers also had Dragon Commander in them!... (Well higher than 65 but lower than 500)

      G.

    34. Creator Midou on April 4, 2013

      I'm glad it seems to be going at a nice pace. Would love to see just how awesome it can turn out.

    35. Creator twinchenzo - Weresheep of Original Sin on April 4, 2013

      Considering the link for a Russian article - it's not about the campaign, it's a preview of the game from May 2012. More recent news were here: http://riotpixels.com/larian-studios-vyshla-na-kickstarter-s-divinity-original-sin/
      And that is where I leart about the Kickstarter campaign from.

    36. Creator Del137 on April 4, 2013

      Just one point - reward matrix dont incluse UPD1 pledges (for example, add 50$ to get alpha test etc), maybe make another additional table?

    37. Creator Vincent V. on April 4, 2013

      So at $65 (digital) you get 2x DOS and 1x DC ?

    38. Creator Darklord on April 4, 2013

      Nah this won't fail!

    39. Creator Del137 on April 4, 2013

      Grand job, good video and music theme choosed, going to share
