We’ve been keeping watch on a game we noticed at a few conventions last year called Leviathans. What is Leviathans you may be wondering? Instead of trying to explain ourselves, here is an excerpt directly from the about page on their site:
Leviathans is a game in development by Catalyst Game Labs that simulates combat between warships that have taken to the air in an alternate history/steampunk 1910. The king leviathans, the battleships, are the largest vessels. Maneuvering in support are the smaller ships of light cruisers, destroyers, and others ships. Will you captain your fleet for king and country, expanding your nation’s power and becoming legend? Or will you fall from the sky, forgotten?
If you’re thinking: Alternate history? Steam punk? Miniatures? or Flying ships? then you are exactly where we were when we first saw the game! It was supposed to release last fall but ran into some major production issues. All of this to say, they just posted an update on their website that appears to be very promising and hopeful at a late summer release!
While we weren’t fortunate enough to demo the game (the lines were always INSANE), the basic rules pdf is on the site and everyone we’ve talked to loved it. We’ll be keeping an eye on the game and are excited about finally getting our hands on it. Below you can see some of the pictures (or all of them on the official update) from the post. The starter box looks LEGIT.
