Hardcore Gamer: I had never really followed the Divinity series or was even aware of Larian Studios, and yet when I heard about their Kickstarter campaign, I couldn’t help but be intrigued. There were promises of an epic RPG with cooperative multiplayer, significant choices and consequences, and an emphasis on exploration and experimentation through a comprehensive crafting system and unique character development. It was everything I could hope for in an RPG and more, and these lofty promises made on Kickstarter have started to manifest themselves into an actual playable experience. The alpha for Divinity: Original Sin was released recently, and we here at Hardcore Gamer were lucky enough to get our hands on it. It is obviously not complete yet and is still a bit rough around the edges, but there is a lot to be excited about even now.
