Divinity Original Sin Board Game Crosses $1 Million In Crowdfunding
Having numerous acclaimed action-RPGs under their belt, developer Larian Studios and Lynnvander Studios recently announced plans for a Divinity Original Sin board game, taking the series to tabletop for the very first time. Amazingly, the game’s crowdfunding on Kickstarter almost immediately amassed its $160,000 USD goal, with most of the month-long campaign still remaining. In the time since, the project has now pulled in an even more incredible haul of moolah, having now passed $1 million USD in funding.
In a new update to the Divinity Original Sin Board Game Kickstarter page, Larian expressed amazement regarding how quickly funding was completed and congratulated fans for unlocking the campaign’s final stretch goal: Slane the Winter Dragon. “Holy cow! We have officially broken seven digits, and now have Slane joining the ranks,” Larian’s post read. “That’s going to be epic in so many ways and we’ll make sure the encounter with him will be memorable. Your support has truly blown us away, so thank you for each and every one of your pledges that has gotten us this far!”

Breaking through these stretch goals was apparently just the beginning, as Larian also confirmed work on even more that are currently on the way for the Divinity Original Sin board game. “Over the next few days we’re going to sit together and look over our options and decide what comes next,” the post continued. “Our team has plenty of ideas of how to add to and bring the game forward and you’ve been very active in our community channels with suggestions already so if there’s anything you think would benefit the game tremendously, by all means, do let us know. We’ll be back next week with what will undoubtedly be the final list of stretch goals.”
In the meantime, both Larian and Lynnvander are attending PAX Unplugged in Philadelphia, PA, allowing fans to learn even more about the game during the event. While Divinity fans have a featureful new tabletop experience to look forward to, the video game side of the series has also recently announced a glorious physical edition of Divinity: Original Sin II that will soon make its way to the Nintendo Switch.
