The world is threatened by some dark menace. It needs saving! And there you are,.. the hero? No, not even close, you’re a criminal. A convicted murderer in fact. It’s up to you and your band of shady individuals to save us all. This obviously is not your typical game. You’re in the south Adventuria and chapter by chapter you’ll face creatures and challenges like you’ve never seen before. How you accomplish these things is entirely up to you and you won’t always find yourself on the moral high-ground.
This turn based RPG is the design of Deadalic Entertainment. Aiming for a release in January of 2014, they hope to bring a new standard of suspense in storytelling. Combining unique characters with a very intricately designed 3D environment, the rigorous campaigns will outline this grim tale of over 180 battle maps that are filled with interactive objects and difficult situations.
At Gamescom recently, Daedalic Entertainment’s Kai Fiebig and Claas Wolter were interviewed about their venture into the vast world of RPGs. Wolter was quoted as stating, “There’s not that much awareness for Daedalic and our games, but with Blackguards it’s a different story.” Fiebig mentioned that with over five years of producing adventure games, it wasn’t until this RPG venture that people began to look at their adventure games.
One thing’s certain, if the game is as interesting as the storyline, this won’t be the last RPG from Daedalic Entertainment.
