GrapeOcean Technologies’ isometric party-based RPG Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness is just about ready to launch into beta. According to the game’s latest Kickstarter update, the beta is ready, and the big question now is getting it to the eligible backers.

Regarding Steam and GOG, everything seems to be on the right track, so the Beta will eventually be available on GOG and Steam as well (depending on whether you have specified a GOG or a Steam key in BackerKit). In the meantime, however, we will ship the Backer Beta as a direct download.
This process will begin on the 3rd of July at the latest and will take a couple of days.

If you don't receive such an email until 6th July, please send us a message on Kickstarter or via our contact forms.
Finally, a few teaser screenshots from the Beta[...]
