Control Command Escape Reviews Divinity: Original Sin
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Control Command Escape recently posted a new review of Divinity: Original Sin from Larian Studios. The Kickstarter funded fantasy RPG features an isometric view point, party-based gameplay, turn-based combat, choice and consequence, character and party development, and a large interactive world filled with characters and items.

Everything in the game, from a barrel to a tree, has stats like vitality (shown by hovering the mouse over it with ctrl held down), many have things like resistances to different things, and still others have statuses. So a level 20 coal basket (seriously) might have 50,000 or so vitality, some amount of armour, various resistances, and be "burning" (and precisely how much of this information is available to you is dependent upon the current character's "Lore" ability). And yes, that means you can cast a rain spell on it, which douses it both visibly and in terms of its properties (removing "burning" and adding "wet"). And that means the game will accommodate you doing things like laying down an oil slick and then igniting it with a fire-based spell, roasting the poor bastards stood on it in combat, and effectively lifting the entire selling point from (sadly Windows-only) Magicka in the process.
