Divinity: Original Sin board game is blowing up on Kickstarter

Divinity: Original Sin board game has popped up on Kickstarter and it’s blowing up. In fact, in the time it took me to write this sentence, the Kickstarter pledges jumped by a thousand dollars — and Larian Studios’ newest project shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.

Divinity: Original Sin is a pretty great role-playing game from Larian Studios. The company has created two core games and several spin-offs in the Divinity universe, and now they’ve decided to take things to the tabletop with a Divinity: Original Sin board game.

ALSO: Divinity: Fallen Heroes delayed indefinitely, needs ‘far greater development time’

Unsurprisingly titled Divinity Original Sin The Board Game, 1–4 players will spend 60+ minutes heading out on a branching, narrative adventure. Not only does this game promise some pretty kickass combat, but it also says that your choices will have repercussions throughout the play session. There are also some pretty darn cool models that you can get as a bonus if you decide to spring for the premium edition.
