Prior to Divine Divinity, Larian was developing The Lady, The Mage and The Knight for Infogrames, an RPG based on The Dark Eye / Das Schwarze Auge universe. They had licensing problems and abandoned the title and the game ideas in the early stages. They then went on to create an original universe in Divine Divinity.

Larian worked on Divine Divinity as their first game, but they had to develop a the RTS-game The L.E.D. Wars along the way to earn some cash and convince possible publishers of their skills, in order to get Divine Divinity published.
