I think it will not be available at Essen.

Cool theme with playing gods who try fight off against the invading
settlers. Additionally it is coop and the card aspect seems pretty cool.

BUT I am not sure if replayability is given, because as far as I see the
enemies are always the same. People, Villages and cities without alteration from game to game. So only alteration is the god you take and what card you get. Not to fond if this will be enough for more than a couple of plays.

I like this game from my first look pretty much.
Looks like an enhanced version of Machi Koro, but it got
rid of its flaws.

Captain Sonar was always fun for me. But 6-8 persons was almost always too much. This is where Sonar might hit a sweeter spot.

:EDIT
I dumped Last Friday. So I would like to have another Hidden Identity game. Maybe this could be I nice and quick alternative. But only if it is able to catch the feeling I love about Whitechapel.

I got Last Friday and don't need another Hidden Identity game. Let's see which one is better.

I have seen a video and it is shining with theme and it is a beautiful one. Good mix between its theme and its thematic mechanism where sun moves around like in Helios and trees shade other trees.

I think I need this in my life ^^

EDIT:
some more thought went to it and now my position switched. It is just too abstract to hype and attract me like it did. I will play if I get the chance, but I am not in buy mood anymore.

3D element in game looks nice.
Mechanisms look like nothing too new and special.
And the price is huge ~60€
