New release: YOU… and who else?

You and who else
We truly are living in The Age of the Strategy RPG, folks! Aldorlea Games reaches out to announce that they recently released their first-ever sRPG, YOU… and who else?

The premise:

Compose a party of 9 Generals (among a total of 20) and conquer the mysterious locations around you to achieve the ultimate goal of restoring peace in a world at the brink of collapsing. Face (and defeat) legendary creatures such as Ogre, Cerberuses, Gargoyles and Lamias as your power grows and your army gets bigger.

Will you be remembered as the Hero (or Heroine) who saved the world, or miserably failed trying to do so?

I am deeply curious to know how this thing actually plays–there’s no trailer, unfortunately, and the actual website is pretty light on details regarding the game’s mechanics, but the screenshots lead me to believe that YOU… and who else? is a cousin to Shin Megami Tensei Devil Summoner, with battles resolved in jRPG fashion. Luckily, there is a free demo available, so you don’t have to rely on my guesswork!

In the meantime, here is the official feature list:

* Unique blend of Strategy and RPG
* 20 Hours of Addictive Gameplay
* Play up to 82 characters
* Mouse control
* Auto-saving
* 4 modes of difficulty
* Tons of Relics and Artifacts to discover
* Great-looking enemies, beautiful environments and charming music
* 144-page strategy guide available

You can get YOU… and who else? for $12.99 direct from the developer. Windows only.
