Paradox Interactive has announced that beta sign-ups are now open for Salem, Seatribe's Massively Multiplayer Online crafting game set in the New World. As pilgrims on the new frontier, players will have to overcome the harsh wilderness to survive while fighting an authentic 'permadeath' mechanic. If you're interested, head over to the official site to get involved.
I daresay that you have plenty of questions, and Seatribe has wisely opted to release a video interview that should hopefully wrap things up nicely. Watch it after the break.
