A rising tide lifts all boats, and in New Bedford that means the town is ready to grow. Rising Tide is an expansion to our popular game, New Bedford.
Set in the mid-1800s, the golden age of whaling, New Bedford gives you the chance to build the Massachusetts town of the same name into a thriving community. New Bedford: Rising Tide includes more ships and supplies allowing a fifth captain to enter the game. It includes even more historically-themed buildings to expand the town. Ships at sea will now have tales to tell from the Ship's Log, and while Providence favors the bold, darker Omens are also on the horizon. Catch the Rising Tide to take your game to new heights before the water is over your head.

A NOTE FROM OUR DESIGNERS
New Bedford’s design was influenced by a time when whaling was a part of daily life - and that eventually lead to a modern crisis for many species of whales. To make it clear, we don’t condone modern whaling. But we think that the history of New Bedford and the whaling industry is an important subject. Just like our chemistry game, Compounded, we believe that games designed for entertainment can also be educational - and, in this case, foster discussion about a controversial topic. For more information on modern whaling and conservation efforts, please check out this overview from the World Wildlife Fund.
