It’s been a year chock full of reached goals and exceeded targets on Kickstarter game-wise and while it’s not the first follow-up title to surpass expectations in recent months, Divinity: Original Sin II has managed to achieve its original goal of $500,000 with a total – at the time of this article’s writing – of nearly three quarters of a million in the space of a mere twelve hours, with just under five weeks still to go until funding ends. The 2014 RPG for PC received critical acclaim from both press and fans alike for its effective, back-to-roots gameplay and mechanics, hence the developers at Larian Studios hope to push the new IP’s success into grander realms in the coming future.
In an update and accompanying video – starting rather fittingly with the words ‘funded by people with good taste’ – the studio admit they’d been caught off-guard at the rate at which the follow-up title would reach its goal to the point they have not even finished deciding on the stretch-goals. Larian Studios are currently setting up for the upcoming PAX Prime convention and admit it will take a bit more time for subsequent updates to come. But judging by the rate of both interest and appreciation for this title – as well as the genuine passion and likability Larian clearly express – we’re confident fans of Divinity will be satisfied with the developer’s future plans.
