Designed by Michael Mihealiskc and J.B. Howell, Wizkids have announced the release of a new Flotilla game, revolved around economics and journeying within a destroyed world by the ocean.
The story takes place in the 1950s after the Bikini Atoll nuclear tests caused a huge explosion which caused sea levels to rise intensely, leaving people to resort to building the floating city Flotilla. Within the new refuge, you explore what’s within as you scavenge and trade resources, and most of all, survive.
Within the announcement:
“In this 3-5 player game, players will explore, salvage, trade, and build their way to the most victory points, and a place as the most powerful commander in this new society. It features two distinct and interwoven modes of gameplay, using a unique system where nearly every major component is double-sided. Players begin the game “Sinkside,” exploring the ocean with the skiffs, rescuing survivors, and diving for resources to sell or stockpile. At any point in the game, you may choose to turn “Skyside,” selling your skiffs, and using resources to improve and build the Flotilla itself.”
The player with the most Victory Points is the winner, and it’s possible to win no matter when you go ‘Skyside,’ if at all. In Flotilla, you’ll find significant strategic depth and variety, while giving players the freedom to tell their own story. Flotillais coming soon, so preorder it at your Friendly Local Game Store today!”
The Flotilla game is scheduled to be released in stores this October, you can read more about it here, and you can pre-order it here. Filled with story and interesting mechanics, this is an intriguing game that’s worth setting sail for!
