The lights are on
Selling a naval based turned-based strategy game to a wider audience is tricky, so Paradox Interactive hired a Barry White style narrator to read off the game's virtues to the sound of a smooth jazz soundtrack.
Does this '70s style pillow talk make you more interested in commanding a naval fleet, upgrading ships with powerful new weapons like laser cannons, and participating in asychronous cross-platform multiplayer battles on the high seas? Find out for yourself by watching the trailer below:
Leviathan: Warships also includes a cooperative campaign with nine missions, a battle recorder, and an offline mode for hermit admirals. The game is scheduled to release for PC, Mac, iOS, and select Android devices on April 30. If you want to pre-purchase the $9.99 game for PC, you can do so here.

Paradox has quickly become one of my favorite developers. Excellent trailer for an otherwise missed game!
This ad is one of my new favorite things!
Free shipping... If you know what I mean. But really, it's digital...
I like the Jazz, the guys voice seems a little off, and it was far too cheesy for the smooth style they were going for.
Turn based naval tactical battles? You already had me, the narration was just icing on the cake. Classic!
Great trailer. Nice to see a unique promotional trailer.
lol WTF xD
*applauds* Loved watching that. Oooooh yeah.
Looking to be something intriguing.
