Board Game Publisher: Days of Wonder
Days of Wonder used to be a black box in terms of revealing information about a game prior to its official announcement, but that policy came to an end in early 2014 when it started publicizing Five Tribes at conventions months prior to its release at Gen Con 2014.

Along the same lines, I played a prototype of François Gandon's Quadropolis at Spielwarenmesse and previewed the game (under an interim title of "City Mania") in April 2015. Now BGG News correspondent Phoebe Wild has visited the DoW booth at BGG.CON 2015 to give you a sampling of this 2016 release.

Moon has written a designer diary for BGG News that details how the expansion came to be and how it evolved into its final state. If you want to see the final result more directly, Days of Wonder's Adrien Martinot shows it off in the video below.
