This one of most anticipated board games for 2013. Here is some background on the game from Playdek:

In Uwe Rosenberg’s game, set during Europe’s recovery from the plague, players send their family members out to plow fields, sow crops and build fences. Add rooms to your farmhouse and expand your family! Many hands make light work, and give you extra actions each turn. But, each season the Harvest comes along and every family member must be fed! By developing and improving your farm, the civilized world is revitalized.
