Hmm, cool-sounding RPG from France (mais oui!)

So over at ICV2 ("The Business of Geek Culture") a little while ago I was surprised to see an item about Paizo getting ready to distribute an RPG from France:

"Paizo Publishing has inked a distribution deal with French company Gob In Tux Publishing to release the company's tabletop RPGs, boardgames, and novels in North America. The first title will be the sci-fi roleplaying game Polaris, which will be the only 2015 release under the new arrangement.

Polaris is an RPG set in a post-apocalyptic undersea world. Mankind has been forced to abandon the world of sunlight and is now dwelling at the bottom of the oceans, where human nations continue their endless wars. Sea monsters and looters harass mankind, along with the mysterious Polaris effect. The 400-page Core Rulebook is planned for October release.  MSRP is $50.00.

Additional Polaris RPG products will include a Game Master's Screen and sourcebooks:  Bestiary, Technology Guide, Hegemony, Priates, Surface, Coral Republic, Polar Alliance, Mediterranean Union, Amazonia, and Secrets. "

There's not a lot of information about Polaris that I could find, but the artwork looks great and I like the ideas.  It's a bit like the Cerulean Seas books from Alluria Publishing.  I've always been interested in RPGs from non-English speaking countries but they are hard to find (for me, anyway).  I'm seriously thinking of buying this when it's available.
