I think by now it is obvious that Swen's strategy has been a tremendous success. Make a deep, funpacked, polished coop RPG and the money will roll in. Bravo! I'm glad to have been part of crowdfunding it and look forward to years of gaming with Larians lovechildren.

#1-selling game on Steam for 7 days straight (ever since release), even beating out this Left 4 Dead 2 for $5 sale atm.

It wasn't number 1 seller for a few hours when the PayDay 2 Shotgun DLC came out, but after 4hrs or so D:OS was back on top.

I didn`t say that. I only said, that`s my Favorite - not, thats the better Game. But also i wouldn`t say such Words like "it was nowhere near". I would say, that Divinity 2 wasn`t a almost perfect Game like Divinity OS, but you have to agree, for a 3D RPG it had MUCH Potential. And i think, if they give it a try and carry some of the Features from D:OS - this could be such a epic Game.

How do you sort by region?

And I think it's only been one week, but still impressive. Any news on sales figures, do you think they've broken even yet?

I think they have. Swen said they were almost there on Thursday, and since it is still #1 on Steam it must have broken even by now.

-DOS' success seems to be coming purely from word-of-mouth. As far as I can tell, Larian has ZERO advertising budget. Hell, most of the big gaming sites haven't even reviewed the game (yet?), nor have most of the big youtube personalities. The big Wasteland, Torment and Eternity kickstarters may have demonstrated that countless gamers still want classic-style CRPGs.... but Original Sin has demonstrated that we still LOVE them.


For your number 1, I'm tempted to give it a red review but the content would be otherwise. Just to stop having tipsy people.

I have suggested to Kripparrian to play D:OS and I'm hoping he would pick it up. He is playing Grim Dawn lately which is another indie game so he might pick this up.

It's been at 1 too during the sale, when it was 20% off for quite some time before release.

More than 7 days (almost) straight on #1! Congrats, Larian! smile

I hope that means great sales numbers and at least one major expansion and maybe some smaller free DLC stuff for D:OS in the future...

incorporating the kickstarter stretch goals is the first thing I have in mind especially the schedules and companion personalities.

+1 to henryv, implmenting of Phantom`s Forest Dungeon ,personalities,companions and other small cut features should be done,but first let`s Latrian fix most annoying bugs,crashes and make lot optimisation and then they should have big rest undoubtely

I hope you guys do well enough to split off teams with one team adding and improving content to D:OS (new editor features and content packs, expansions, patching and polishing, tweaking and improving) and one for an entirely new project surpassing D:OS in depth and content.

Don't worry Larian.. when winter sales come you see big monies. Hope you have enough money for Divine Divinity 3. And most of all, polish your games more smile. You will be no doubt be like CD Projekt Red with your level of support.
