Skyward Collapse, the turn-based god game by Arcen Games in which you get to play as a particularly cynical god who loves isometric graphics, is about to get both bigger and better with its first expansion: Nihon no Mura (PC/Mac). Said expansion is still in beta and doesn't thus have all its scheduled features included, but sounds already impressive enough.
Skyward Collapse: Nihon no Mura, you see, introduces the Japanese as the game's third playable faction along the Norse and Greek contingents and throws an assortment of truly strange and aggressive new gods into Skyward's pantheon, while simultaneously introducing an innocent-sounding game mechanic: hamlets. Non-combative, non-factional villages that can be built in the remains of the fallen towns of either faction and can change the ways in which you can win the game.
Nihon no Mura will officially (fully) launch later this month for $2.99 and can be pre-ordered for 10% off during its beta period.
