The Divinity: Original Sin 2 Kickstarter is about to reach the end of its funding period on September 30th, and donations are still going strong. Just today it’s reached its $1,650,000 milestone, guaranteeing the game will come with dedicated mod support for players who want to take their game further.

The above news is pretty good, but Divinity fans got an even bigger surprise today: Ex-Obsidian writer and developer Chris Avellone has joined the project to help develop and write one of the game’s origin stories.

Chris Avellone is a big name in the traditional computer RPG space, and he has been involved in some of the best-loved games of the genre. Avellone had a hand in developing the Icewind Dale series, Planescape: Torment, Fallout: New Vegas, and most recently Obsidian’s Pillars of Eternity. And this is only a short list of his attributed titles.

It’s less than a week until Divinity: Original Sin 2‘s Kickstarter comes to a close, and it’s less than $350,000 away from the coveted Game Master Mode. With a little luck (and $350,000), we’ll get what would be the ultimate sought-after mode for a traditional computer RPG. Will it make it? Throw some money at it and let’s hope so.
