Here is the official announcement for those that might want more information.

DRM-free digital distributors releases Blackguards Special Edition 10% off for the first week; AMA with the developers; giveaway of 40,000 free copies of The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav launches on Reddit.

GOG.com, the one-stop shop for the best in DRM-Free gaming for PC and Mac, hearkens back the golden age of tactical-RPGs with release of Blackguards from Daedalic Entertainment. This complex and demanding game, with set-piece hex-based epic battles at its core, complete with an immersive soundtrack, is available DRM-free for only $40.49 for the first week!

The game has already been lauded for building one of the most intricate party-based combat systems in recent years (Gamespot). Diverse battlefields demand attention and adaptive play as they often hide tactical areas for the player to uncover and take advantage of, all the while keeping him invested in gaining an advantage in positioning and keen use of spells and special abilities. Rooted in tabletop RPG system The Dark Eye, the Blackguards builds an elaborate mosaic of diverse character creation options, branching skill trees, eccentric companions, and combat balance-swinging dice rolls.

With plenty of treacherous foes, roguish anti-heroes, and hardcore turn-based battles full of tactical puzzles, Blackguards is a treat for tactical RPG fans able to keep a cool head in the heat of the battle. While picking up Blackguards Special Edition for $40.49 for the first week, gamers should take a look at other recent classic and new releases on GOG.com like the spy simulator Sid Meier's Covert Action, vampire/cyberpunk adventure BloodNet or comedic fantasy tale The Ballads of Reemus: When the Bed Bites.

To celebrate the launch, GOG.com is also hosting a giveaway of 40,000 copies of Daedalic's first game set in the Dark Eye universe-The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav-on social media site Reddit.com, where the developers will be answering questions about Blackguards, the Dark Eye universe, and pretty much anything else. Visit http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1vuvzb/iama_developer_of_blackguards_daedalic/ to take part in the giveaway or ask questions, starting at 16:00 GMT today.

Right event, wrong medium for me.

But wait, seems that I don't belong to their desired target group …
