Have You Played… Dragon Commander?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. It's the one where you can marry a skeleton and until Divinity: Original Sin 2 came along, it was probably Larian's strangest interpretation not just of the undead, but of the world they created as a setting for all things Divinity. Dragon Commander is very strange.

Reptile High Club: Dragon Commander Out Today

I shouldn't be surprised that Dragon Commander is out today, after all, we seem to be have been writing about it forever. Somehow, because it had been spotted in the incubation chambers of press events so often, I'd started to believe this was one speckled egg that might never hatch. Alec's most recent preview identified the game thusly - "Dragon Commander’s a bit like an…

Burn The Press: Dragon Commander’s Interactive Trailer

My favourite thing about this interactive trailer for Divinity: Dragon Commander is the music it plays while you consider your position. It reminds me of dramatic quiz show music, adding a frisson of tension to the already taut situation you're asked to involve yourself in. It makes me want to ask Noel Edmonds for his opinion on the matter, which is how all decisions should…

Have A Half Hour Of Dragon Commander

Hooray for the person who decided that dragons can have jetpacks. I get the impression that the from that moment on, Divinity: Dragon Commander was set on a path to Sillyville. Any further questions about lore were probably answered by the lead developer pointing to artwork of a dragon blasting jets out from his backpack and then a shrug. It's a decision that ends at…

Swen Vincke is the bossman at Larian, they of the Divinity games and now ambitious Dragon Commander, and he's taking his studio in a bold new direction: free of the publisher contract, they are going to develop and publish the game themselves. Vincke talks about this strategy - and few other issues like the real reason people said the PC was "dead" - in this…

Larian: Retail Important To Indie PC Studios

In an interview to be published tomorrow on RPS, Larian boss Swen Vincke argues that digital delivery should not necessarily be seen as the dominant channel for PC games distribution, and argues that retail could be valuable for self-publishing studios such as his: "Nowadays people are all talking about the indie revolution and the power of digital distribution, but retail has always been the powerbase…

The Jet Set: Dragon Commander Videos

If dragons with jetpacks and skeleton princesses are your favourite things, Dragon Commander is being created specifically for you. It’s not often such niche tastes are accounted for, so count yourself very lucky indeed. Alec was pleasantly surprised during his encounter with Larian Studios’ RPG, strategy, dragon-action hybrid at Gamescom a couple of weeks ago and now a developer walkthrough has found its way online…

Diviner Divinity: Dragon Commander Preview

If I hadn’t spent an hour playing Saint’s Row: The Third, Larian Studios’ Dragon Commander would comfortably be the oddest game I saw at Gamescom. It’s not odd through and through, however – in fact it’s a focused, ambitious and visually gorgeous brew of roleplaying, strategy and aerial combat, with all manner of batshit silliness peppered about its surface. It’s already found some notoriety due…

Divinity II Devs Declare Dragon Commander

Divinity II devs, Larian Studios, have announced their next game. Continuing their fondness for winged lizards, this time it's all about "massive dragon combat" in Dragon Commander. A turn-based strategy-cum-RPG, it's of course set in the Divinity universe - although within what they're calling an "Art Nouveau/Steampunk world" - and they're promising it will "break new ground". You can see the first video of it…
