Save the world by being a bastard

With Daedalic's peculiar turn-based RPG Blackguards getting closer to release, the developer is opening the doors to beta testers interested in fighting evil with evil. Set in the same universe as Memoria (which I'm already in the process of reviewing and just came out today), Blackguards puts players in the shoes of a band of outcasts and criminals as they attempt to save the world from an even greater evil.

The beta will run from September 4 to October 2, and if you want to participate just shoot an email to betatest@daedalic.de, mentioning why you want to check it out and what your gaming experience is. As a fan of Daedalic's output and RPGs that don't demand that players take on the guise of a noble hero, I'm rather looking forward to this one.

Blackguards will be out this November on PC
