It almost doesn't touch gods. Sure they exist but they aren't that prominent in the story. The game has nothing at all to do with Christianity.

Well, keeping it this spoiler-lite - there is one god-being that does make an appearance and it is involved with the main plot, however, it only comes into play late in the game and towards the end. For the majority of the game, there aren't any gods around. Given the game is titled "Divinity", that's almost slightly strange, yet that's the facts.

There is some religious influences, mainly in the backstory, but it's very few things cherry picked from Greep mythology and the Bible, as well as something else (wasn't too familiar but looked like Eastern mythology) and mixed together. Still, while involved in the backstory, it doesn't really matter much to the main story aside from giving some context. It's also revealed very late in the game, too.

So, in summary, while there are gods and divine things in the game, the focus isn't on them and they hardly matter to the story. The name of the game does have something to do with its content but it's a bit deceptive - while both "Divinity" and "original sin" make an appearance and are sort of the basis of the plot, they aren't really apparent for most of the game and they aren't really that important either. As I said, they mostly provide a context.

We really shouldn't answer people who do not respect anyone else. I mean... he/she is running around with a badge that insults every non-Christian in their signature...

First of all Christianity dosent exist in this game, it's a fantasy game with a fantasy story, also there are seven gods in it believe. I can't see the point of this topic TC, no game Is going to be anti-God/Christian unless it's directly made so.

It actually has some things in common with Christianity. Specifically, they are both fantasy stories with zero basis in reality. Divinity is a bit more believable than christianity, though.
Also, this is a mind-bogglingly stupid, narrow-minded, and pointless question/topic. Get a life.
