Announcing the Final Countdown
We have been very busy the last couple of days. I know, as if we couldn't get any busier, right, but we took it to busiest!
We've been playing a pre-alpha version of the game together with many a journalist, and the results start coming in. Not only does this help our Kickstarter campaign, it also spreads the word about Divinity: Original Sin.
Another huge morale boost if the pickiest of gamers actually like the game!
Jesse Cox, One Moderately Funny Gamer, but also pretty famous Youtube star, was bent on trying about anything: "Swen tries to walk me through it with the patience of a saint. I attempt to test that patience :P"
See whether he succeeded here:
Angry Joe, featuring even spikier hair as usual, said: "I went from not interested to CAN'T WAIT".
Watch his unbridled enthusiasm as he tries to take on one of the toughest fights in Cyseal, and screams in horror as the undead gather around to tear him limb from limb:
Jamie Dalzell wrote a hands-on report on games.on.net. "A developer, its Kickstarter backers, and the challenges of niche development. Hand in hand, 'til the end." A good read!
Announcing The Final Day
In the final four hours of the Kickstarter campaign, Swen and David will be playing Divinity: Original Sin together, live on twitch.tv. Will they co-operate? Or compete?
They will listen to your suggestions and take your questions while playing!

David didn't want this picture to be used, but it's actually the best one there is... Which is saying a lot :-)
If I see someone running around with a fishing rod in Divinity: Original Sin, I'm sure they don't want to use it as a weapon. They want to be fishermen.
There will be another update later today featuring...!
