Nobody told me about Jeklynn Heights, now I'm telling you

I hadn't heard about Jeklynn Heights until I saw this post on Rock, Paper, Shotgun this morning. We've never posted about this indie PC game on Destructoid, and I take that as a shameful failure, because it looks incredibly interesting. 

Jeklynn Heights is a "dark fairytale multiplayer game" that takes place in the eponymous town. It incorporates a wide variety of genres, including roleplaying, first-person and third-person combat. Two teams fight over the "Orb of Egression" which will allow them to escape the eponymous town. To help them, there are Ability Orbs that grant them new skills, and Sanity Posts that act as spawn points. 

The game is offering a free beta signup right now, so you may want to check it out. The visual style is fantastic, and it seems like developer Vex Studios is aiming for a really unique game. I want to find out more!

Also, who doesn't love that name?
