Gamescom 2012: Thieves Steal Two Demo PCs, Developer Offering $5000 for Information

Thieves have stolen two demo PCs at Gamescom belonging to developer Larian, the PCs contained early versions of two of its titles.

According to the developer the machines stored early versions of Divinity: Dragon Commander and Divinity: Original Sin, and it is offering a $5000 reward to anyone who can lead them to the culprits and the recovery of the PCs. The developer issued the following statement:

Hey folks… this definitely isn’t the way we wanted to kick off Gamescom!

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.

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.

Larian will want to recover the PCs as quickly as possible to prevent the games from leaking online.
