Default Larian Studios - The Route to the Very Big RPG

January 16th, 2012, 22:48
Once again, Swen Vincke has blogged about Larian's plans to make "the very big RPG that will dwarf them all", with more interesting insight into the business side. On the cost of making Dragon Knight Saga:
Heres a break-down of what it cost us to make the Dragon Knight Saga
  • 4M employees
  • 900K freelancers
  • 270K outsourcing of artwork
  • 200K hardware
  • 700K software licenses
  • 400K localisation
for a total of 6,5M. Thats a lot of money and as the Dragon Knight Saga was released via co-publishing deals , it also meant that we needed to take care of the majority of this investment ourselves, since the publishers only contributed partially to the funding.
More information.
