Original Sin - Live Twitch.tv Q&A

Larian Studios hosted a live Q&A on Twitch.TV were they answered questions about Divinity: Original Sin. If you don't have time to watch the video a forum user posted a transcript of it.

Are there systems that encourage roleplaying? Are there mechanics that will guide players to make smart in-character decisions?

Yes, every quest has multiple solutions and different solutions, not just your regular solution via a different method. At least one will be dependent on which character you’re playing. The Charm/Reason/Intimidation options will help determine which way you’re going to go – if you haven’t got the stats to intimidate somebody, then that’s not going to work.

There is no difference in dialogue options if you put character A’s intelligence high, and character B’s intelligence low, they both get the same stuff.

When will Kickstarter backers of certain tiers get to give their input on designing X and Y?

First, make sure that you create an account on the Larian Vault and link it to your Kickstarter account. They’ll automatically know what rewards and such you are entitled to, and you can fill in the design X and Y things. There are some things you can fill in, there are other things that Larian still needs to get the parameters of from their design team.

Will there be an organized way to post mods and new adventures

They’re still working on the logistics of that, but yes.

Can mods be released as a commercial product?

Maybe. There will be come kind of agreement that will let you sell your game if you want to, but details are still up in the air. They’ll be finalized before the editor is shipped.
