Hachette Games and Gigamic announced the upcoming tile placement game Akropolis will be coming to the US on July 1st 2022. "Construct the most prestigious Akropolis and develop cohesive districts for your citizens. As you create new buildings, you will expand your city - either spreading out or building up. The higher your stacks of tiles, the more valuable the buildings! Just make sure you don't run out of stone; it's a finite and valuable resource for every architect!" Gameplay Overview Take on the role of an architect and build your own akropolis in ancient Greece. Try to construct districts of similar buildings and stack them high to increase their value. Add plazas as multipliers for even more points! Each turn, choose an available tile and add it to your city. The further down the construction site the tile is, the more stone you'll need to pay to take it. Immediately add the tile to your city, either expanding outward or stacking higher.

UMBRAL LEADS READERS DOWN A DARK PATH

Fans of The Spiderwick Chronicles and Dark Crystal will love this new story arc

Bestselling writer Antony Johnston (THE FUSE, Wasteland) and artist Christopher Mitten cast their spell once more as they return with the eagerly anticipated new story arc of UMBRAL in Book Two: “The Dark Path,” which begins with issue #7.


“A must-read for fans of magic, thieves and all things scary.” —CBR

“If magic and toothy things that go 'boo' in the night trip your trigger, you shan't go wrong with Umbral.” —Crave Online

"The novel has nice pacing. It is fast and it needs to be as there is a great deal of action in it right from the start… Antony Johnston's writing skills and Christopher Mitten's pencilling talent have made this idea become an epic story of good versus evil."
—SF Site

Umbral #7 begins a new story arc that takes the tale’s unlikely heroes through the ‘Bulaswode’: a strange, misty forest full of dangers and weird creatures, including the deadly Silvali riders, called Wodelings. Rascal will have to face her past and battle against hopelessness. Dalone’s own past will return to literally haunt his nightmares. As for Shayim and Munty... well, they’ve got their own secrets to worry about. By the end of it, none of them—especially Rascal—will ever be the same again.

"By now, most books would have settled down into a cosy status quo, with good and bad guys clearly marked,” said Johnston. “But in Umbral, there is no status quo. Just a quick-witted, potty-mouthed thief on the run from nightmare shadow creatures, wizards, assassins... and magic itself. We recommend Umbral for discerning fans of high adventure and low morals."

UMBRAL #7 arrives in stores this 7/16 and will be available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code MAY140740. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is 6/23.
