Description

A new era is looming on the horizon. The future of Noria is right in front of you, and you must guide your flourishing trading empire into prosperity. Discover flying islands, buy ships, and build factories. Invest in prestigious projects, and secure their success by passing on secret knowledge to politicians. For even above the clouds, there is still room for improvement…

Noria is the debut title from Sophia Wagner, winner of the Spiel des Jahres fellowship in 2015. This talented, young female designer has created an entirely new Steampunk/Sci-Fi universe specifically for this game, and artists Michael Menzel and Klemens Franz have managed to bring her vision to life.

At the center of the game is an innovative mechanism called “Wheel Building“. Each player has an action wheel consisting of three rings, with slots for a number of different action discs. Over the course of the game, players try to obtain new discs and manipulate the rings of the wheel to optimize their action selection. Additionally, to ensure their investments bear fruit, they also need to bribe politicians with knowledge.
