Divinity: Dragon Commander interactive trailer is pretty funny

Tuesday, 9th July 2013 00:06 GMT By Brenna Hillier

What’s better than trailers? Interactive trailers. Having watched this political decision making example from Divinity: Dragon Commander, I feel comfortable ranking the Larian strategy effort first in the “best virtual advisors” league.

For maximum sniggers, vote against reprimanding the sensationalist press – but do see what everyone has to say first.

Divinity: Dragon Commander is available for pre-order on various digital distributors, and dropping your cash early nets you an upgrade to the Imperial Edition as well as immediate beta access. The full game releases on August 6 and will cost $40.

Have I mentioned it’s about flying around on jet-powered dragons? It is.

    I’m more in love with this game now than ever. I honestly could enjoy a game just about this, talking and making decisions in a wildly bizarre fantasy kingdom. The [spoiler] elf being upset about the dwarven journalist he found under his bed, and the paper reporting about him ‘tending another garden on the side (only to reveal this wasn’t a euphemism) was singularly brilliant. [/spoiler]

    This is a very endearing, charming, clever little game. And that it’s funny as well only helps. Dragons with rocketpacks, technomagic transhumanism, and now this.

    As I’ve said before, I feel a little weirdly about Dragon Commander. It’s very much like I commissioned a developer to create a game just for me… yet I don’t recall doing this, and I’m not sure if I could have afforded to do that, anyway. Yet there it is. I don’t have anything like alcohol or drugs to blame it on, either. I’m fairly sober.

    This is something else.

    And honestly, I think one of the reasons I have so much love for this game is because it’s one of those games. A game that’s willing to accept that I have intelligence, enough to appreciate its humour, its diverse setting, and its gameplay. It’s a far cry from the usual ‘turn your brain off’ entertainment of the mainstream.
