I tried this game a few days ago as i love RPG's and have been looking for a real good RPG (Not the mainstream stuff they call RPG's, like oblivion). I was a but apprehensive as I tried a few other lesser known games and got burned people told me were good. This game is awesome, how come more people and game sites are not giving this game its just attention. It's sad today unless a game gets hyped and advertised like crazy it gets little to no press.

I hope the devs keep making games like this, as they seem to be rarer in todays casual, hold your hand gaming environment. Love it.

About 1/2 the budget for well-known rpg goes to marketing (and 3/4 to everything but development).

I was under the impression larian doesn't have enough money to do big marketing AND deliver a great game.

Thanks for the appreciation for our game, the entire team has put their heart and soul into it to make it as good as possible with the available budget.
I'd say, help us a little making it more well known; spread the word, nobody is as credible as a good fanbase! smile

Divinity 2, like Divine Divinity before it, is a great game. And Like Divine Divinity, received very little press here in the U.S. - which is unfortunate. Both games are very good games with solid stories and play mechanices. It's a real shame that more people don't know about these games.

I never heard of it.

Was browsing a Gamestop's used games for a cheap game to try, and since I like dragons, Divinity 2 Caught my eye.

Blame the publisher for its lack of marketing...though it's still months away for the US officially. I'm fairly certain the business model works in that what happens after the game is done, is out of the hands of the developers(besides patches/content of course). The publisher can distribute the game, but it doesn't have to inform you of its existence if it lacks the funds or will to do so.

I thought it was great and have mentioned it to others.

Took wind of this game in a certain message board under a thread called "Nothing good ever comes out of Gamebryo". Gave it a try for the hell of it and had to go "It's like it's not really made with Gamebryo!" or maybe it should have been "Why is Bethesda so talentless?" but yeah.

I advertised it on the Two Worlds forum but that was it. If all fans of the game were to advertise the game on all the game sites they use, it would surely become more popular and hopefully we'll see a new Divinity game soon.

Even if they are developing Div 3, don't get too excited. I love the Divinity games but 7 years between major releases is a long, long, time. Assuming that Larian started working on Div 3 in 2009, that means the next full game would release in 2016. That's one of the problems Larian has in getting a publisher, especially American. Nobody wants to wait 7 years for ROI.

I say this as someone who has loved both games.

Only God knows when the world will end...

And I doubt it'll take 7 years for Larian to make the next Divinity game. I heard they were working on a spin-off game.
