Default Original Sin Preview and SOME History

Actually I'm finding the history from Sven the most interesting part, like these quotes:

“Another of the publisher’s titles, Sudden Strike, was such a success that the CEO decided that Divinity should have alliteration. He called it Divine Divinity. It sounds like a porn movie.”
2002 saw the commercial success of Divine Divinity, but little money for the developers. Sven reports that their then-publisher “stole shitloads of it”.
Would that be CDV or Snowball Studios?

CDV

Snowball Studios just published the Russian version of DD. One of its co-founders is currently the Director of Business Development & Publishing at Larian Studios.

CDV not only tried that alliteration thing on these games (Sudden Strike, by the way, can be shortened to "ss", which is a Nazi symbol), but they tried alliteration also on "Project Momads", the I think very first game of Radon Labsx : It was weakly subtitled as :

"After the disaster".

Not very good.

("After" & "Disaster" almost don't rhyme at all, but someone must have made it up, because otherwise it wouldn't have been printed on the package …)

“ Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage – to move in the opposite direction.“ (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
