Based on the style, it looks like it's illustrated by the same person who illustrated Garphill Games' Circadians: First Light. Also, look at this!

Wow this looks amazing. Great historical setting too.

Color me interested! That art looks great.
I'll definitely look into it. The art is quite different from the other Garphill Games I've seen (at least the North and West series).
Yup, seems like they're trying to distinguish this one from that line of games, which is fun!
I think I *might* like this art style better. I am also curious if they are keeping the same 9x9 box?

The art is in house as well, which makes it easier. The artist is Sam Phillips, Shems brother ;)
To be honest, Mihajlo's art has become so representative of the trilogies (granted, his art is used on a lot of different games these days) that I it feels odd to see a new Garphill Games' game with a different style.
I strongly suspect, and don't know this as a fact though, but Mihajlo's art will be a part of their trilogy games. But they don't want all their stuff to look the same. If they decide to do South and East, i strongly suspect he will be back for them. But if they do totally different games, expect to see other artists and more Sam.
I didn't know that.
Sams originally a Tattoo artist, but as Shems gotten bigger hes started helping out with the business as well as doing his own thing. https://www.samphillipsillustration.com/
Huh. I didn't know that. That's cool.
I have no interest whatsoever in getting a tattoo, but if I would, I'd want one from him.
That'd be awesome! The 9x9 is seriously impressive for the game to box ratio.
I sure wouldn't mind seeing more games in that size.
Hmm, good question. It definitely looks like it could be the same box size.
It does, but it could also be the 11.8x11.8 like TTR.
Its Shem, so its almost certainly going to be a shem box
Yeah, I like the front cover that's for sure. Although it does say it has similarities to #Raiders of the North Sea so we'll have to see if it's actually different enough for me to consider. Especially if it's main mechanic is Worker Placement since that's what Raiders is.
I'm sure it's a different game, just takes some of the mechanisms. There are only so many mechanisms to go around, haha.
Yes and no. It's kinda like a Raiders 2nd edition, but one that doesn't make 1st edition irrelevant. Think Agricola and Caverna, or Pandemic and Pandemic:Fall of rome.
Oh man, I forgot that @3MBG has the connections with Garphill. I'm looking forward to seeing what they come out with!
Connections makes it sound sinister, lol. Sam play games at mine and we talk games is about it. I get review copies of their new games, partially because it easier to drop one at my house that it is to send it overseas to anyone else :)
Haha, well it wasn't meant to be sinister. That's awesome that you have friends who make quality games!
