How Larian rose from Tier B to dominate RPG

When Larian boss Swen Vincke first heard that his debut RPG would be called Divine Divinity, he thought it was a joke. But his publisher in Germany, CDV, was too serious. They had had success with a game called Sudden Strike and suspected that alliteration might be the key to their long-term success. Reader, they were wrong.

Today, CDV has been dead for a long time. But the name ‘Divinity’ has remained attached to almost all of Larian’s featured projects ever since. It is an artifact of a long and grueling period in which the studio was subject to the whims of the one who pulled the strings of money. An inescapable reminder of outside interference that the developer has now triumphantly erased.
