What happens when the only hope of a threatened world lies not with heroes in shining armor, but in the hands of a band of misfits and criminals? Blackguards, a new turn-based strategy RPG, explores this very question. You will discover over 180 unique hex-based battlegrounds within a dark and mature story of crime, drugs, and murder.

Play as a warrior, mage or hunter and customize your character's skills as you see fit. The challenging campaign delivers a story of doubt, treason and loss. You decide the course of the story at key turning points and determine its outcome.
  • More than 180 unique battlemaps provide ever-evolving and novel challenges.
  • Make sure you have plenty of snacks, as this dark fantasy adventure has 40+ hours of exciting play time.
  • Lead up to five characters in your party to glorious victory or devastating defeat.
  • Enjoy enchanting hand drawn backdrops. They're beautiful even when your party members get their asses handed to them.
  • Your choice of spells, skills and abilities determine your battlefield tactics. Aggressive? Defensive? Tactical? It's your call how to tackle each challenging encounter!
  • Use interactive objects like bee hives or barrels to your advantage in combat, or blow yourself up by carrying a torch into flammable swamp gas.
  • Dish out some serious damage with 40 special abilities and more than 90 spells... or find yourself on the other end and get obliterated.

  1. Lot of the same
    by daisyborat, USA - Feb 6th 2015

    Now this has a great idea, great theme, and lots of great animations. But what i cant stand is that you can pretty much go anywhere and hear the same dialogue and same text. Apparently all the people in this world just blabber the same way. They took something great and got lazy on simple to program text, character development, etc.

    The other thing is that the challenges are so often the exact same. You have new skills, new talents, but do the same old thing. They didnt do much to wow or trick you, and honestly once you learn how to play its easy to beat most of the levels.

    -I stopped playing because i got to a part that i cant beat a boss. Well turns out hes immune to a bunch of things, and it turns out by no mening of my own i equiped a lot of the same type "damage" weapons to my characters. And best yet, its like 5 waves into an area you "cant return" from, so it means i have to go back like 15 saves to find equivelent weapons for the characters and replay all sorts of crap to get back to the "no return" area, then beat a bunch of the same things to go beat the boss. Its super dumb and has no real reason to be there.

    -They just had such a great idea and theme, then didnt do anything to capatilize on their foundation. Ive read reviews for the sequel that recently came out and they say a whole lot of the same things. It seems like the company who developed this cares more about building the cool car and not doing simple things like making the buttons ergononmic or hell even putting the speedometer in front of the driver instead of the trunk.

    I woudl say buy this game for 15 dollars or less, its still worth it, but just dont get your hopes up. I would say this is for 15 and younger, they wont get annoyed by it as much as an older person.
