Z-Man Games announces Lowlands. Farming on the North Sea Coast:

Z-Man Games - not yet purchased by Asmodee unlike every other smaller publisher it feels - is still putting out games like a boss! They've just announced the upcoming release of Lowlands, a game of farm-building with varying agendas on the coast of the North Sea!

The low land is a rough area where hard-working folk make a living by the sweat of their brow. Under constant threat of storm and flood, communities here rally together to build dikes that keep the rising water ay bay. But every citizen constructing a dike is one fewer citizen tending flocks and maintaining the family farm. The residents here are constantly torn between selflessness and self-interest, and only those who can strike this delicate balance can thrive in this harsh landscape.

The flocks in your fields need tending, but dark clouds are on the horizon. Do you see to your own interests, or do you join with your rivals to protect yourselves from the coming flood? Rise to the challenge in Lowlands!

It looks nice and it's Z-Man, so there's quality there too. Here's hoping Lowlands plays well. If we get the chance to cover Lowlands for you we will. For now though, we look forward to its release.
