Noctiluca has us interested, because, Shem Phillips.

Noctiluca, an engaging abstract game from acclaimed designer Shem Phillips. Renowned for their restorative properties, the noctiluca are desired by many healers. Players must carefully plan their path before diving into the water to collect these mysterious glowing creatures. With a beautiful double-sided game board, up to four players can compete against each other, or one player can rescue noctiluca from the tempest in the included solo mode.
