GOG.com offers timeless classic Master of Magic for free to anybody who pre-orders Divinity:Dragon Commander!
Wednesday June 12th 2013
GOG.com will provide all the gamers who already pre-ordered Dragon Commander--and everyone who preorders the game from here on out--with a fitting gift: a timeless classic, Master of Magic, added in for free! The similarity between these two titles may not seem all that apparent--especially since Master of Magic is nearly 20 years older than Divinity: Dragon Commander, but both games have an incredible blend of strategy, roleplaying, and tactical gameplay.
Originally released in 1994, Master of Magic has introduced many innovative elements to strategy and roleplay gaming, in fact, one can find traces of some of the creative genre mash-ups from Master of Magic in Dragon Commander itself.

Music review meeting with Kirill Pokrovsky
Wednesday 12 December 2012
Last Friday, we had a meeting with our music composer Kirill Pokrovsky. We regularly sit down with him to review the progress he's making on creating sketches for both Divinity: Original Sin and Divinity: Dragon Commander.
Sketches are rough ideas for music for the games, which can be created fairly quickly without requiring an entire band or orchestra. They enable us to see whether they're going in the right direction and if we can use them.
Here's a four minute video of a five hour meeting with Kirill.
