From the announcement:
Paizo Publishing has inked a distribution deal with French company Gob In Tux Publishing to release the company’s tabletop RPGs, boardgames, and novels in North America. The first title will be the sci-fi roleplaying game Polaris, which will be the only 2015 release under the new arrangement.
Polaris is an RPG set in a post-apocalyptic undersea world. Mankind has been forced to abandon the world of sunlight and is now dwelling at the bottom of the oceans, where human nations continue their endless wars. Sea monsters and looters harass mankind, along with the mysterious Polaris effect. The 400-page Core Rulebook is planned for October release. MSRP is $50.00.
Additional Polaris RPG products will include a Game Master’s Screen and sourcebooks: Bestiary, Technology Guide, Hegemony, Priates, Surface, Coral Republic, Polar Alliance, Mediterranean Union, Amazonia, and Secrets.
A Polaris boardgame and novels are also planned.
Paizo will release Pavillon Noir, a new Gob in Tux RPG, in 2016. The 500-page Core Rulebook will feature full-color interior, with new illustrations. A collector version with leather binding is also planned. A series of support products will follow.
