Well, computer games aren't funded because they are art but because it's a business... big games have big budgets... they create synergy effects... improve the location's value... create jobs... generate tax income... and so on and so forth... the mentioned aspects don't play a role in the writers' branch.

True. But that is not different for almost any company. And every company does get some government support for those reasons right now.
But you're right I think, you can compare it with the movie industry much better.

Ok dudes lets get back to topic. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

There is something nobody has spoken out yet and maybe it's a chance for Larian to get a bigger base of fans/customers. Ok so.. when is saw the short ingame scenes of Divinity 2 I thought about Gothic 3. As most people know Gothic 3 was not as good as the fans hoped. It was laggy, buggy and the support (by PB) wasn't that great. Most fans of the Gothic Series (like me *g*) are looking for a new game to play, this could be DD2. Gothic 1 and DD were both great RPG's and cause of the gameplay, the story and many other things they are similar to eachother. I think most Gothic fans would like DD2. The biggest Gothic fanpage I know is www.worldofgothic.de and if new RPG's will be released soon there is often an announcement for this game like for "The Witcher" or "Loki". Maybe DD2 will be announced either, if the game would be more popular. Of course not now.. thats much to early. But about one month before the release is a good moment to make potential customers interested in your product. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

Its just an idea.. but this great game should get a great fan base so that DD Series will be continued. xD

Didn't thought that anybody would know me.. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

BTW: Soon my new project "Gothic Reloaded Mod" will be announced (not realeased!). Its a very special Mod that aims to improve the graphic of Gothic 1 by using new textures (done by me *lol*) and revised meshes.

Thanks for the Info. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Stone of this forum has always been informing us about Gothic-related things. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" /> This one as well. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

In the RPG Chat (German) you can find a few threads about all parts of Gothic. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

Hmm.. I can't find it. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/disagree.gif" alt="" />
But this is maybe the wrong place to discuss that.^^ I would like to know what the employees of Larian think about that.. maybe they even dont read this. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> *lol*

Hm, well I fear we just know too little.

But personally, I found your idea interesting.

I don't know enough about Gothic to give any kind of intelligent response, unfortunately. I've never even seen it in England, and I have no idea how large a following it has.

Elliot, I think I can say that the following here in Germany is quite huge !

Gothic is here THE RPG of the last years !

Well, here in Indonesia nobody has ever even heard of Gothic, myself included. What does it look like? Can you please give me a link Raze? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

Alrik - Ive only heard of it because I've heard you talk about it before, I think. Do you know if it's German language only, or has it been translated?

There are English translations around for all of the Gothics (exept maybe the expansion for Gothing 2, Night of the Ravens. I know MysterD was complaining about that, since I recently bought Gothic 2 and therefore browsed through the Gothic thread in the RPG section). It's weird you haven't heard of them, considering that there hasn't been that many non-action cRPG's out since Gothic 1 was released in 2001. The sequel came out 2003 and Gothic 3 came out around Q3 (or Q4) last year IIRC.
