Welcome back everyone to another Road to War update. We have some big announcements this week so let’s just jump right in.
The main announcement we have this week is that our friends over at Seismic Squirrel have officially announced their latest project: Leviathans: Armored Skies! We are incredibly excited to announce with them that Leviathans will be getting a video game set in the same timeframe and universe as our tabletop game. They will be working closely with us to create a great story with gameplay to match, focused around the adventures on a single ship and its crew during the The Great War.
The story will be centered around the crew of a British Armed Merchant Class (AMC) vessel as it does battle with French leviathans along the English Channel at the outbreak of The Great war. While the French are not officially at war with the British at the war’s outset, this AMC and its crew can fulfill the will of the crown without causing all out hostilities between the two countries. Their story will be directly connected with the events of the miniatures game and the overall narrative of the Leviathans universe.
While the game will launch separately from our coming table-top miniatures Kickstarter there will be plenty of cross promotional content to look forward to for both games.
They are also often on the Leviathans Discord so if you have questions for them you can easily find them there. Plus they will be making their own discord soon for the game so keep an eye out for that.
Moving back over to our side, we are also announcing that before the end of the year we will be releasing an anthology set in the Leviathans universe. It will be a collection of stories from writers like Blaine Pardoe, William Keith, S.M Stirling and Harry Turtledove. The anthology will also include small news articles, documents and other vignettes expanding the universe and showing what the world looks like as we move into The Great War. We will be giving an exact release day as we get closer to finishing the book.
Finally I wanted to give you all a quick update on the kickstarters and its launch date. Of course because 2020 was the original goal of launch it has not happened, but we are now able to say that the Kickstarter will be in the spring of 2021. There are still other factors that can contribute to it moving around in that timeframe but we feel very confident that, provided 2021 doesn’t turn out worse than 2020 (knock on wood), we will be able to launch the Kickstarter then.
Much more to talk about in the weeks to come so keep a lookout for that and talk to you all again soon.
