    Overview

    Divine Divinity is an action RPG released in 2002. It was the debut title by Larian Studios, located in Belgium.

    Plot

    The story revolves around your character and his or her adventures through the magical realm of Rivellon. As the story moves forward, you learn of a demonic presence that was banished many years ago from the land by a council of mages that is slowly returning to a world full of distrust and hatred amongst different factions.

    Gameplay

    The gameplay is similar in style to action RPG's like Diablo, while containing a more open-ended world, optional quests and a levelling system that have more in common with traditional RPG series such as Ultima or Elder Scrolls. The player begins by choosing either a Survivor, Warrior or Wizard as their beginning class which also determines beginning skills. As in most of these titles, the character gains experience which allows points to be used for various skills such as lockpicking, defense, healing, etc., each of which has several levels of proficiency. In an unorthodox twist, all potential skills are open to the player to choose from, regardless of their starting class.

    Soundtrack

    The music from the game was never officially released as an album but the tracks are available from the composer, Kirill Pokrovsky's website ( http://www.kirillpokrovsky.com/ ) for free.
