• To start 2024, U.S. publisher Rio Grande Games has updated its list of forthcoming 2024 game releases for which there is mostly no information:
After I wrote that line above, Deep Print Games revealed more about this game, and as it turns out, my guess was close:
Lumicora is a three-dimensional tile-laying game that relies on clever planning and timing. Gather colorful coral tiles and construct a beautiful luminescent reef.
• Designer Leo Colovini has shown off the components in Le Chemin de la Maison (“The Way Home”), which he describes as a co-operative children’s game that French publisher Space Cow will debut at the FIJ game fair in Cannes in late February 2024. However, Space Cow has posted nothing other than images about this game, so for now you are left to interpret rules from the components.
• German publisher Hans im Glück has teased a future release with a radically different look from the rest of its game line. The 2024 Spielwarenmesse toy and game fair is open in Nürnberg, Germany from January 30 to February 3, so I’d expect more info about this title — including what the title actually is — before too long.
