Survive:: Escape from Atlantis

Had a chance to look at a pre-release copy of this in October and it looks quite good. I especially like the sinking island mechanic. Island pieces get replaced one by one with water tiles, eliminating any of your pieces on the land tiles at the time of the switch:

An underwater volcano has erupted and the island of Atlantis is sinking into the sea! Unless the people of Atlantis escape before the volcano explodes, all the inhabitants are doomed! In this game you try to lead your people from the sinking central island of Atlantis to the safety of one of four islands nearby. Your people can get there by boat (if they find one) or by swimming but avoid the Sea Serpents, Whales, and Sharks! The player with the most survivor points wins.

Survive is a cutthroat game where players seek to evacuate their pieces from an island that is breaking up, while remembering where their highest-valued pieces are located to maximize their score.
