Playdate: We're livestreaming 'Divinity: Original Sin' on PC! (update: on pause)


Welcome, ladygeeks and gentlenerds, to the new era of gaming. The one where you get to watch, and comment, as other people livestream gameplay from PCs and next-gen consoles. Because games! They're fun!

Click. Click. Click. Wait. Click-click-click. That might sound familiar to anyone that spent a good chunk of their youth crawling through dungeons and slaying orcs and hewing skeleton skulls on their PC in role-playing games (RPGs) like BioWare's Baldur's Gate, and that's what Divinity: Original Sin is all about. When the project hit Kickstarter last March, developer Larian Studios' plea was simple: help us make an awesome old-school styled RPG. Well, the audience responded to that and over 19,000 backers collectively pledged $944,282 -- more than double the project's initial $400,000 goal. How did the game turn out? Come back here at 7 p.m. ET / 4 p.m. PT and find out for yourself as I broadcast it live!

Update: Due to unexpected technical difficulties, we're postponing our stream. We'll update you through Twitter when we're ready to stream again.
