cw8: Has the RPGCodex donated the $4K they managed to raise to trash RPGwatch?
http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/help-us-bring-down-rpgwatch-com-in-divinity-original-sin.82388/
Not yet, they'll do that on the very last day of the campaign.
Update #28 is up: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/larianstudios/divinity-original-sin/posts/462635
We can get to 800k I think! Yeah!! =)
It's a pity about the (story relevant) day/night cycles though...but real companions are actually more important IMO.

800k look pretty plausible right now. With PP we are past 730k already. :D

stonebro: I'm definitely not sold on this being turn based, though.

Nirth: Do you mean you don't believe them or you rather want something else?

I think the reason this was funded is because it's actually turn-based, seen numerous comments over different gaming boards that mention that they first thought it was going to another Diablo clone. :)
I'd rather not have it turn based, I think. Maybe that's just my memories of playing the original Divinity refusing to let go. I'm more keen on free-flow ARPGs than turn-based ones, anyway. But of course it all depends on how it is executed.

I'm going to watch TotalBiscuit's preview video here before I make up my mind.

nijuu: Pls 800k :)
We're at around 756 now (+ paypal I guess), so we'll get there in any case! (if the rate of backing keeps up, of course ;) )
Just wonder how much over this goal they'll raise!

756!!!..Last time i checked (last night) it was hovering around 666.... those playthroughs must have made the $$$ go through the roof
Just short of about 38K now. Considering Codex and Watch managed to raise about 7K-8K which is about to come in, it will probably be around 30K to 800K goal.

Crosmando: This would be well over a million if they hadn't of launched right in the middle of the Torment Kickstarter, without any prior warning and no pre-build up, but oh well, I hope they reach the companions goal
Larian did about a 3 week press tour before the kickstarter, though launching it a week early didn't help. It was planned before Torment, etc, were announced (they said if they were going to do another kickstarter they'd reach out to everyone they knew to see if there were any similar projects being planned, with an aim to coordinate better).

The $1M stretch goal (day / night cycle, NPC schedules, weather / moon phase influence magic) is starting to look like it might possibly be within reach...

Too bad that they always leave some of the cool stuff so far in stretch goals. Kinda annoying. When I read those Kickstarter pages it almost feels that base goal doesn't get you much of a game in any of the cases.

Hope they do reach the top stretch goal as just over $200k in 24 hours is possible.

I emptied out my account so I can't pledge more right now on KS, but if they reach it, I'm going to match my pledge in the PayPal post-drive, if any.
