Update #20: A Kickstarter retrospective; vote for a Skill Tier!
Seasons greetings to our favourite 42,713 people! As 2015 is winding down, production on D:OS2 is winding up and nearly the entire team is going full force creating our next adventure.
See what the *rest* of the team (including our porting gurus) has been up to in the mean time, and find out how to claim your right to some very important design input in the following video:
Our campaign, uncensored
It’s a creative and exciting time in the Larian offices, but we’d be remiss to forget just how we got here: with your help, of course!.
We put together a retrospective of the wild ride that was the Kickstarter campaign, from the first $100,000 (in only 1 hour!), to PAX and TwitchCon, to the final $2,000,000. Check out the campaign's highs, lows, and bloopers below.
Vote for Skill Tiers-- now open!
You guys blew through not one, but TWO stretch goals granting you the opportunity to vote for two new Skill Tiers in D:OS2. The vote is now open at the Larian Vault! (See below for the details on how to create a Larian Vault account.)
There, you’ll be able to select which of several novel skill tiers you’d like to see in-game. The two highest-voted tiers will be developed with completely custom spells, stats, visuals, and animations.
Would you like to see your heroes polymorph in battle? Or perhaps you’d like to rampage through enemy camps as a juggernaut? Sound off at the Larian Vault!

The brand new year we pledge to spend
On crafting an even grander Sin,
With countless wonders locked therein.
Thus promises Rivellon's dazzling-most star:
Best wishes from yuletide Bellegar!
