In accordance with grand gaming expo tradition, a bunch of Larian Studios’ PCs have been nicked from their Gamescom booth. The developer is offering a $5000 reward for information that will lead to the recovery of the machines, which are reportedly loaded with early builds of two of the company’s upcoming games.
“Two PCs were stolen from Larian’s booth in the business hall at Gamescom, containing early builds of Divinity: Dragon Commander and Divinity: Original Sin,” said a Larian rep in a statement.
“Larian is offering a $5000 reward for information leading to the identification of the culprit and return of the PCs. We’re asking the game community to band together to track these criminals down and to get the games back!”
“The team is using backup PCs, so no issues there — and if you have an appointment with Larian, there’s no change — but if you have any information about the culprits, head to Business Hall 4.2, Booth A-16 to let the team know. Oh, and you might as well stay for a demo.”
Is Zynga at Gamescom this year? I’d maybe keep a close watch for any suspicious announcements about Divinityville.
