Default Divinity: Original Sin

Unlike most kickstarter games that are just in the brainstorming phase, this is a title that is close to completion yet still needs sufficient funding. The title they always wanted to make, before publisher interference..

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...y-original-sin

Quote:
Next RPG in the Divinity series featuring classic turn-based combat, non-linear SP campaign with optional coop and a unique RPG editor.

"Picture a modern version of a world not unlike that of Ultima VII, that can be explored either alone or with a friend, that sees you engage adversaries in tactical turn-based combat reminiscent of the great turn-based RPGs of the past. A world that is filled to the brim with choice and consequence situations, reactive NPCs, and a considerable amount of surprises. A world that captures the feeling of playing pen and paper RPGs with our friends. Then add the new stuff..." - Vision statement for Divinity: Original Sin
Press:

Quote:
"Original Sin is an effort to achieve perfection, and the effort is hard to miss." - Jim Sterling, Destructoid

"The content that I played was far more than a proof of concept but the nature of the game – a different kind of open world RPG that genuinely did remind me of my favourite Ultima – left me wanting more. I’d only seen a tiny portion the world, only found a couple of item recipes and less than a handful of quests, but I was hoping that the game would be enormous. It’s an RPG built on solid, amusing writing and strong systems, and the more space it contains, the more possibilities there will be to explore, enjoy and break those systems." - Adam Smith, RockPaperShotgun

"It has the humor that Larian Studios is known for, the extensive quests with multiple endings, turn-based combat and multi-player support in a game that can just as well be played solo too. In addition it is the first Divinity game that will come with a level editor that allows players to create their own content. Divinity Original Sin is self-funded by Larian Studios and hopefully is a big success so they can continue making great games." - Runner up most promising RPG of 2013, RPGWatch

"The game felt and looked like Divine Divinity on steroids." - Myrthos,RPGWatch
Turn-based Divinity game? Yes! Multiplayer, DRM-free, LAN capable, party-oriented, monsters don't scale to you, friendly fire, and the ability to save anywhere (shame that this is even an issue).

Agreed. So much for the constant "no market for old school RPG" nonsense. Just goes to show just how much stagnation is caused by publishers.

I never thought Kickstarter would get this big, but I'm glad it has. Put the power back into the consumers' hands.

Oh, yeah. I had to back this. I would have been buying this at release either way. This game looks like it has some serious potential.

I'm glad they went back to the isometric view. I didn't much like their move to 3d, the original Divine Divinity is still the best of the series, mostly due to the artwork and the amount of stuff you could do in the world.

Luckily I get a divine dicvinity vibe with this new game, looks like the emphasis is once again on lots and lots of original content instead of fancy new 3d engines...backed it.

There's usually a mad rush at the last minute. Hopefully they have updates planned to push more backers.

Based on the fact that it's already so deep into development I think it's a 2013 release. Could be pushed back if they add stretch goals.

Only a little over $65k to go with 21 days left. Looks like almost a sure thing which is great because I am really looking forward to this.

Yeah, I don't think that they'll hit much past 500,000.

They now got $800k with 24 hours left, I really hope they reach $1.000.000, but I doubt they will raise 200k with so little time left.

The last stretch goal

At the time of writing we are around 90K away from reaching our final stretch goal, taking into account paypal and the fundraisers by RPGCodex & RPGWatch.

We're homing in!
So close, but there is only ~2 hours left.

and at the same time.

Stretch goals are fine, as long as they're wearing yoga pants while stretching.

Looks promising. Hadn't heard about the kickstarter before yesterday when watching TotalBiscuit's pre-alpha session. I like the conversation system and how it actually defines what's going on around you.

This is crazy, people were not willing to back the kickstarter, but they seems to have no problems backing the game for more money through the early access.
