The only info on this title comes from coverage on Bordspel.com of the Chocolatl opening day events held by Quined Games. Erwin Broens mentions that Era of Inventions is a working title for this economic development game.
Update, Sep. 2, 2010: Quined Games has now posted more information about this release. Here's a brief game description from the publisher, part of which is translated from Dutch:
Explore the lives and minds of Alexander Graham Bell, Karl Benz, the Wright brothers and other pioneers of invention and experience the thrill of the industrial revolution. Be there when the cash register, the sewing machine, the typewriter, the telephone, the gramophone, the camera, the car, the steam engine and the plane are all invented again in Era of Inventions. This time you will be the inventor who creates, patents and introduces these inventions to the markets and the world!
The goal of Era of Inventions, which lasts 8-10 rounds, is to gain as much influence in the industrial revolution as possible. In each round players use several actions to drive their business forward and gain influence, such as building factories, buying or producing raw materials, or inventing devices and bringing them to market. Time is short, so your actions are limited. The player who best handles his action discs, money, materials and development will carry the most influence in the game and ultimately find himself the most influential inventor!
