I know that hoping for this to be available for Gencon is probably overly optimistic, but will there be a demo copy there so attendees can give it a "test drive"?

I should have at least an advanced copy to show off. Cross fingers.

I was able to listen in on a play of this game, then get a rules description and then sit in on a playtest today at Gencon. This game is very impressive. It reminds me of a mix of Goa and Puerto Rico.

Most like Goa, it has a measure of how good you are along multiple attributes that each give you an ability (buy buildings, more people/actions, greater hand size, and the ability to buy back people.) It also has quite a bit of board interactions between the players including combat and timing/strategy. This will get a terrific score on this board, so watch out for those fuller reviews.

There will be some that compare it to Agricola because some of placement rules, etc. However, I think it is much simplier then Agricola, and doesn't have as much opportunity for analysis/paralysis. Very fast game (less than an hour), very good player interaction, and strong strategy options. I bought a copy after one demo. Order yours now or you'll regret it.
