Risk Legacy was probably the most innovative board game of 2011. It took the classic Risk gameplay that we all know and hate, and turned it on its head by adding a multi-game campaign, built in mini-expansions with prerequisites for opening, and the unheard-of idea of making permanent changes to the board and components, including their destruction. When it released, I played it and declared that those mechanics would be the next big thing in board games.

Designer Rob Daviau has since left Hasbro, started up his own company called Ironwall Games, and has been working a new intellectual property with legacy style mechanics. Today, Plaid Hat Games (which you may know as the publisher behind the recent BioShock Infinite: The Siege of Columbia) officially announced Daviau's new game, SeaFall.

SeaFall is described as a 4X strategy game set during the age of sea exploration. As with Risk Legacy, it will have mechanics in place to advance a story and remember player decisions from game to game. No more about the mechanics has been made public, but we can expect to learn more before it releases in 2014.

Crookz puts a '70s heist movie spin on tactical gaming

A tactical game with a '70s heist movie theme? Finding something like that at gamescom is about as unlikely as finding a videogame trailer with porn star Ron Jeremy in it. But here we are with both. more

Invisible, Inc.'s tactical espionage action hits Early Access August 19

Invisible, Inc. is going to be one of my obsessions this year. Enough that I am actually going to play a game while it's in Steam Early Access (PC, Mac) rather than waiting for the hard launch. Plus, it will be priced at $16 while in Early Access before bumping up to $20 at launch.more
