Paradox Interactive, a well-known game publisher and developer, today posted up a promo video for the upcoming ship battling game Leviathan: Warships. If you watch only one video today, let it be this one. Kittens and puppies can wait till tomorrow. I haven't had this much fun watching trailers ever since the unfortunate fireworks accident at the nearby trailer park.
Paradox Interactive's previous Android project, Magicka, is sitting at 4.8/5.0 after over 100 reviews, so needless to say, I'm pretty excited about their next game. It sets sail April 30th on Android, PC, Mac, and iOS.
And now, for the main event. As the company puts it in the press release, "Do you know what warships, smooth jazz, and a sultry bass voice have in common? This trailer:"
Ship just got real.

NEW YORK — April 17, 2013 — Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games and a scraper of barnacles, today began accepting pre-orders for their new strategic action game, Leviathan: Warships, developed by Pieces Interactive. The game, scheduled to launch on April 30, 2013 for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android platforms, can be purchased early for PC and Mac from digital distributors today for $9.99. All seafarers who pre-order Leviathan: Warships will be given the "Marauders" DLC Pack, which includes a batch of the game’s most heavily armored (albeit slowest) ships and an extra set of flags to adorn players’ fleets.

In addition to this offer, Paradox has released a new gameplay trailer for Leviathan: Warships, and will also be hosting a live streaming event to demonstrate the single-player and co-op campaigns, providing a splash of insight into the game’s tactical combat and the varied ships available for players to assemble, sail, and sink in cross-platform multiplayer missions and skirmishes.

In Leviathan: Warships, players will choose from a wide array of ship and weapon types to build a personalized fleet and fight battles in a unique blend of action and turn-based gameplay. Captains can take their time to plot out their turn, assigning moves and attacks to their ships, and then witness the chaos of battle as each fleet engages their maneuvers in simultaneous action sequences. With Leviathan: Warships, Paradox puts the sea in the cloud, allowing players to start a session from their tablet and continue their cloud-saved skirmish from their computer, challenging foes on any available device.
