Larian Studios – still no word on who stole PCs at gamescom

By Stephany Nunneley, Saturday, 18 August 2012 19:01 GMT

Swen Vincke, founder of Larian Studios, has said the firm still has no leads on who made off with two PCs containing builds of Divinity: Dragon Commander and Divinity: Original Sin at gamescom.

>Speaking with Joystiq, Vincke said while the firm hasn’t heard anything yet, he hopes “it’s a construction worker who doesn’t care about what’s on the [hard drive].”

Vincke said the PCs also contained files on the firm’s unannounced title.

“Right now, the damage is just the loss of a PC – if he puts everything that was on there online, then that could be bad, depending on what happens with the builds/content of the HDD,” he said.

Vincke said the firm has received a few emails starting that all the games were online, but the claims turned out to be false.

A $5,000 reward for information leading to the return Larians property has been offered.

Divinity: Dragon Commander

  • Divinity: Dragon Commander players are a morally questionable lot

    The best bit of Divinity: Dragon Commander is when you get to make a decision about something, and can upset the lizard advisor. Ha ha! Look at her grumpy lizard face. Best. Anyway, this trailer shows off how players have voted when presented with various moral quandaries, and accompanies a new patch and sale.

  • Dragon Commander: weird, flawed, but courageous indie

    Brenna surfaces briefly from under a pile of sequels and uninspired clones clutching a copy of one of the weirdest games we’ve seen in ages – Divinity: Dragon Commander.
