BG appearence in videogame "Die Zwerge" ("The Dwarves")

BG will show up in the upcoming Game "Die Zwerge". There will be a special quest regarding the bards and also some of their songs will be used. Maybe it will be not that huge thing as with "Sacred 2" but intersing nevertheless. Nice video showing Hansi and Marcus playing the game and more infos here...
