I just saw some short video-fragments of Divine Divinity 2 here on Belgian tv.
It looks sooooo damn amazing, I'm so excited, I never expected it to look so damn good!
What puzzles me is that they show only one screenshot here while there is already so much to show.(!)
I saw a guy with really nice armor and a huge(!) sword doing some salto's and running through a beautiful crafted world.

In a couple of days the show that broadcasted this will be available online.
It's in Dutch so I'll post a direct link when it's available.

Be prepared to be amazed.

on which station did you see it? VT4/Kanaaltwee? was it a commercial or was it in a gaming program like Gunk or Gamepower?

Edit: I've read over the 'the show that broadcasted this', so it ain't a commercial, sorry for the mistake. Guess it ain't Gunk as Gunk isn't broadcasted on Fridays.

It was in Terzake on Canvas.
The footage can be found here

click on it!!
and be as stunned as I was (and Hurri too <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />)

EDIT: terzake is something like the news and the topic is investing in flemish developers.
They interviewed a few people from larian (Swen Vincke, Farhang Namdar (lead designer)) And during the interview they show a little bit of the game.
Some guy with a big sword running around, npcs with white text over them.
so I guess thats the way you can oversee their conversations
And somewhere in there you can see a list that is something like a to do list (for the developers, not for us).

EDIT2: Ok so I found the full link and replaced the bad one above. Enjoy <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

oh and unlike Hurry said, the footage is available right away, the minute they broadcast it you can watch it online. Unless you were talking about something else ? (And I think, it will only be online for a couple of days)

I wish I could understand Flemish! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" /> The game shown does look very good. If that is the "next gen rpg", I can't wait. That looks like something that could actually (finally) pull my interest away from Oblivion! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

Thanks for posting this, I'm sure we are all relieved to see Larian alive and well and working hard.

The intro voice says that the game will be out internationally in 2009
Swen Vincke:
says something that like 120 people are working on it and gives some examples what employees of larian might be (like writers, audio people, programmers)

Stef Steyaert is talking about getting flemish developers some funding

the lead designer is saying that like 80 people are working on it for about 2 years. (and that water is really cool <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />)

Swen the second time is just giving us some numbers about the cost of developing, and he gives an example why an international publisher would choose a french game over a belgian game.

Stef Steyaert again saying that there really will be funding for games in the future.
And thats about all they said.

What they are saying isn't really all that interesting, I mean it is, but not when you want news about the game itself.
But this might mean that Larian will be able to fully focus on their RPGs and less on Ketnet Kick and stuff (in the future).

Thank you for that condensed translation! It sounds as if Larian Studios is quite healthy and has the resources to continue their indie game developing tradition. I can wait another year or so - Sacred 2 is out in September so that'll keep me busy for a bit. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

Wish they had told us about this on the forum, since alot of us aren't Belgian.

Thanks for the link, lepel. Terzake, it would have been the last show I ever expected to show footage from the next-gen RPG.

It really looks cool('was dat water? AWESOME!') and for all the people who doubted that Larian was still working on the project: never lose your faith! see what they've made!

That's what I thought, too... in the other thread, many right things were said regarding leaking news in such an early stage. But come on, if you know that there will be a TV report, post it in your forum! People want to see that stuff...

Yeah, I missed it on TV at first, but I'm happy that I check that news site every now and then <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
So at least I was able to catch the rerun (on TV that time) during the night <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

But yeah the very least they could do was warn us in advance or show us the footage that is shown on belgian TV...

We are far from being 100 people working on it in house (not even half of that actually).
But as Farhang said, we are using outsourcers and that makes quite a bunch of people indeed. And I'm not even talking about the publisher's side...

Sorry for that but they filmed that on Friday afternoon and it was already on air in the evening. I think nobody knew (except Swen I guess) they were coming before we saw the camera...

I really have to ask Lynn to give me this Larian tag...

Btw, about this communication thing. We sometime talk about it (at least amongst artists) and we don't always agree with each others but please don't blame the team. If Lar doesn't want to show anything at this stage, there's probably a good reason, isn't it? Just trust him.
