PC Dev Offering $5,000 Reward To Anyone Who Finds Their Stolen, Unreleased Games

PC developer Larian is not having a great time at the Gamescom trade show in Germany this week. The dev sent us a note to share that two PCs were stolen from their booth at the show. On those PCs were early copies of their upcoming games Dragon Commander and Divinity: Original Sin. Not good!

So they're offering a $US5,000 reward to anyone who can help track the stolen goods down. Here's the full message:

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 $US5000 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.

If you know of any info that can help Larian out, you can reach them on their website.


    WOW who steals a PC at a Convention thats bad.

      Who the hell is stupid enough not to protect them? If these turn up - it will be reverse engineered and retitled as Zeppelin wars: Crusade and Zeppelin Wars: Dragon Strike

      More to the point, how the hell do you just walk out of a convention with I'm assuming is a couple of pc towers under your arms? Even more to the point, why weren't they locked to a table or something?

        Its a convention. EVERYONE has a computer under their arm.

        Look confident enough while you do it and people just assume you're doing your job. Even if it's using the keys you nabbed to unlock a booths tower, unplug it and walk off. If you can make it look natural and aren't spotted by people who know you aren't meant to be doing that (probably not that many really), nobody will stop you.

    Quick, somebody check the Zynga offices...

      Aha that made me laugh :P
