Development is moving forward at Larian, and we're making steady progress on Divinity: Original Sin. As Dragon Commander is now almost finished, the team working on Original Sin is getting bigger and bigger and pretty soon almost all of Larian will be working on DOS exclusively. We'll reserve the big DOS content updates for later, but it sure is becoming an interesting RPG and thanks to the Kickstarter campaign, we're seeing a vast improvement in the quality of the world design. Thank you once again for making this possible!

Here are a few items that might be of interest to you:              

Pledge management dated

We threatened him, we blackmailed him, we used every single trick in the great book of the Shrike, all to no avail. Then somebody had the bright idea of asking him in a polite manner, and lo and behold, he gave us a date. 

We are talking of course about David and the pledge management system he's developing.  Said pledge management system will allow you to indicate to us which add-ons you want, where you want your physical goods to be delivered, on what platform you want your digital rewards,  what messages you want to put in the game etc... It's pretty much a must-have if ever we want to figure out who gets what and it is therefore with great joy (and some relief) that we bring to you today the news that the system will go online on monday June 24th 2013.  

That's almost like tomorrow! 

Role Playing Convention Award

Last week the Role Playing Convention took place in Cologne and there Divinity: Original Sin received the award for most promising game of 2013. We keep on being amazed at how people discover new ways of putting more pressure on our shoulders ;)

To mark  the occasion, we made a little video, in which Jan & David have a small discussion on the statue we received.

Lost Movie

We should've posted this one a month ago, but somehow it got list in the mix. PC Games Germany posted a highlights video of the live session we had with them with German subtitles. Sorry!

As behind the scenes as it gets

If you didn't see this and have any interest in what goes on at a developer when they're finishing up a game, you might want to watch the following video. It's a tour of the office in which Swen checks on the Dragon Commander team and asks them what they are doing. Don't worry, it's not he typical developer diary where people blabber on about vision and all that. Instead it's a very close look at what tasks developers deal with at this stage of a project. 

Swen also wrote a blog entry that goes with the video, in which he discusses how self-publishing allows us to make changes to a game really late in the process. Specifically, he details the decisions we have to take about pacing, difficulty levels and balancing in Dragon Commander. 

Shout out

Here's a game that caught our attention not only because of its setting, but also because of the idealism of the developers and the ideas they want to put in. Check out Unrest, an unconventional RPG set in ancient India!

Need a fiddler

We are looking for a female violin player. You'll play one of the latest compositions of Kirill Pokrovsky and will also be appearing in one of the movies presenting our upcoming title, Divinity Dragon Commander. Larian Studios is a video game developer located in Gent. The casting will happen in our office and the recording will take place in Gent during the week of June 17th (to be defined with the person selected). To setup an appointment for the casting (10, 11 and 12 June), please email info@larian.com.

      Log in / create an account at the Larian Vault, and there will be a D:OS Kickstarter section where you can enter the email address you used for kickstarter to link your pledge to the Vault account, and then go through managing your tier rewards and add-ons.

      @zep I hate to say it, but I kind of agree with Arlo.
      It's just pixels and since they are opening so much of it, who knows, you might be able to mod it so she runs around naked if you really want to. So go do that. I admit, I used the more realistic skin mods for the Elder Scrolls games and I am not by any means a prude, but I also admit that it was offensive to some people and that the realistic armors caused no actual trouble for me, and it would not be logical of me to be offended by them.

      I think Larian did right by dressing her a bit more respectably and they have earned some respect from me for doing so. I also admit that (at the cost of some respect. Sorry women. I still respect you.) I like the skimpy armor better.

      ::shrugs:: They are not both mutually exclusive.

      'Seriously, it's pixels..not real life '

      No but people in real life will play the game, some of those people will be female. Some of those people will be insulted by those pixels and turned off by the game.What do you gain by making sexual objects of female characters in computer games - maybe you give some teenage boys erections. What you lose is a great deal of respect from a broad range of people.

      If you want this game too be successful you don't want anything standing in it's way, especialy something as cosmetic and easy to fix as bikini armour.

      @JM - Relax, mate. Just calm down.

      But I do agree - I like Lindsay Stirling too, but I think Larian was looking for a Divinity fan who could play, not "know any good youtube violinists?" They've already set up the recording date for like two weeks, which is pretty short notice to get someone like her.

      Creator JM - Boorish Weresheep of Sin on June 10, 2013

      You're priorities are all wrong, folks....

      This vilolinist offer was made to the community for a member of the community to be involved, at least that's what I take from the situation, after all why would they advertise to us when I'm sure they know perfectly well, where to get a violinist.

      But instead of you all embracing that a member of the community would be chosen for this honour and GREAT opportunity.. you're all throwing out names because of some popularity rating among you.. that's not right.

      I don't give a shit what face you know plays a violin.. that's not the point of the exercise.. So will you please shut up with people like "Felica day" (like she would do it anyway *sigh*).. and leave the position to be filled from the community, as 'I' assume was Larian's original intention.

      I'm certainly capable of posting tripe and upsetting people.. but do you know what I wouldn't do.. Take a perfectly normal request for community input and turn the whole fucking thing into a popularity contest for "personalities".

      Think big, Larian. Why not using the PR of working with one of these rather famous youtube violin players? Can't hurt to get some more coverage on Dragon Commander....... ;)

      So we have three very good suggestions for female fiddlers who like video games very much:
      - Lindsey Stirling
      - Felicia Day
      - Taylor Davis

      It's just a pity that all three are American and the schedule would probably too tight for them to. But I would definitely love to see one of these highly talented ladies in one of the videos representing Dragon Commander. Perhaps she could also be used for some of the orchestral pieces of Kirill for Original Sin later?! That would be awesome indeed.... ;)

      @Zep
      There is nothing to assume, it's a fact. In theory you have endless opportunities in a fantasy universe... However, there are some very strict limits as soon as you know what the concept of the game is going to be. You can't just add hordes of random stuff, it has to be true to the concept and the world you are creating.

      @rod
      It's far from my first RPG, which is the reason why I say these things. I agree that wizards and archers/rogues type of classes doesn't necessarily needs the same amount of physical protection because they need to be nimble and agile in order to do what they do best. But that doesn't justify going into battle and exposing parts of your body for the enemy (unless you have some sort of magic barrier which makes you immune to any sort of harm)

      It's an RPG, it has to have realism in order to feel truly immersive and for the most important part, make sense.

      @rod86 - Is this YOUR first RPG ever? Why do male mages typically wear full-body cloaks with hoods while female mages wear bikinis? That is a double-standard and does not fit with your argument.

      Good that that you changed the female heroine's outfit. I'm a male, a 33 year old at that, and I'm tired of the look most females have in games. 1. I find it just silly (the bringing-bikini-to-a-war-thing) 2. It's not so including for your female fans. 3. It feels awkward when my wife pops her head in. :P

      Unless the magic of your fantasy universe changes the way the female body (and just the female body) is affected by basic Newtonian physics it doesn't make a lick of sense to put a warrior in a chainmail bikini. Magic is magic but that doesn't mean it shouldn't make sense and be consistent within your world. Anything else is just crappy writing/worldbuilding.

      I'm sorry Watser, but either this is your first rpg ever, or.. I don't know. The original design was just fine. Who said she was any kind of melee fighter anyway? Why would it make sense for a mage, to pick up your rpg torch, to wear anything that hinders casting? It's just.. this discussion is as obsolete as changing the logo was.

      It's just as much a problem of realism. Now tell me, if you were to go to war, would you wear a suit of armor, or a bikini? That should pretty much sum up why the the first concept art was frowned upon

      Creator rod86 on June 7, 2013

      So I just saw your "lost video" from the last email - tell me you didn't obey to the shouting few and changed the look of your heroine because of that? Ghat would be quite the bummer. Is it still called "Original Sin"? Maybe you change that name around too if enough ppl complain out of their arses. Sorry for sounding so harsh, but your statement in the video was so disappointing.
      Don't get me wrong - the new armor looks ok, but changing such a "meaningless" design because of some loudmouth prudish (probably) american's makes me sad.
