• The publisher eggertspiele typically releases only a couple of titles each year, and we already have news of two such titles on its release schedule, with the standalone game Alma Mater coming from the Acchittocca design team of Flaminia Brasini, Virginio Gigli, Stefano Luperto, and Antonio Tinto, the team responsible for Egizia, Leonardo da Vinci, and (most recently) Terramara.

So far we have only a brief description from eggertspiele of this Gen Con 2020 release:
Quote:
Alma Mater has players serving as a headmaster of one of the independent universities in the 15th century. Players seek to strengthen their school's reputation and standing. To achieve these goals, players need to recruit the best staff and students, exchange knowledge with other schools, and become experts in the school's four disciplines!

Board Game: Era: Medieval Age Expansion
• The second eggertspiele title is Era: Medieval Age Expansion, which as the name suggests is an expansion for Matt Leacock's Era: Medieval Age.

This expansion, which is also scheduled to debut at Gen Con 2020, contains roads and rivers to connect domains to the outside world; new structures that will require new strategies; a new disaster to inspire curses directed at Leacock; and four scenarios to help you become familiar with the new gameplay mechanisms.

• When Plan B Games acquired eggertspiele in 2017, Spielbox noted that "Eggertspiele founder Peter Eggert intends to actively contribute to the development and distribution of new games for three more years."

Those three years have expired, and now Eggert — along with former eggertspielers Philipp El Alaoui and Viktor Kobilke — have joined with Matthias Nagy of Frosted Games (where Kobilke works as a developer) and Karsten Esser and Andreas Finkernagel of Pegasus Spiele to form a new games publisher: Deep Print Games, which will be located in Berlin, Germany. Deep Print's first release will be Renature, an area-control game with dominoes from Wolfgang Kramer and Michael Kiesling that will debut at SPIEL '20 in October.

Here's a bit about the company from the publisher's website:
Quote:
[For] Deep Print Games, Pegasus Spiele CEOs Karsten Esser and Andreas Finkernagel assume rather a supporting role: "Matthias, Peter, Philipp, and Viktor bring a blend of outstanding board game experience and expertise. We leave the core business and the editorial work to them, but support our partners with our help and advice whenever needed. We are looking forward to this new project and the amazing board games to come." ...

The focus will be on impressive games, as Viktor Kobilke explains: "We don't want to limit ourselves by categories, but rather, through dedicated editing, realize great game ideas from well-known and new designers in such a way that they offer unique game experiences and leave a lasting impression."
In addition to Renature, Deep Print Games "is already working on gamer's games, including the redesign of a classic".
