Journeys: The Last Leviathan – Inside Mr A’s latest video game

The Last Leviathan

People are always fascinated when I tell them what Mr A does for a living, so I thought it would be fun to share his latest video game project The Last Leviathan. It is the brainchild of Mr A and his business partner Mr B and a great team at Super Punk Games. It is set in an amazing world which, bar the sea monsters, I absolutely want to holiday in.

The Last Leviathan

An evocative voyage of creativity, discovery and terror. The Last Leviathan is a physics-based, ship building and destruction game. You construct battle ships to crush your adversaries and massacre the monsters you encounter around the ancient seas of Middenhir.

On your voyage to uncover where The Last Leviathan lies you will discover a world full of rival ships, mythical monsters, wrecked flotsam, physics-puzzles and hidden treasures.

You can buy it on video game selling platform Steam. It’s arc of user approval, via votes was pretty dramatic and when it was being green lit it rose to 5th place within days.  Draegast, a gaming You Tuber with close to million followers, was first to review playing it, as someone who isn’t really a gamer I loved watching his videos, they really made me laugh and totally bring the game play to life, his rock hard boat design is pretty hysterical, although I think it will be pretty hard to control (clues in the puns).  Seriously though, so much creativity in the designing here.   Heads up – there is swearing in this, so don’t watch with little kids about.

The kids have been playing it since last summer and love it. I’m a ridiculously bad game player, 7yo G despairs already of teaching me things. But as a travel lover I can appreciate the fantastic tropical island setting.  I would say paradise, but once you have built the boat it’s open to getting shot at or attacked by sea monsters, leviathans.

The kids really got into building their own boats and it reminds them a lot of the creativity of minecraft, but with a much more evocative setting.

I will leave you with the cake the kids made to celebrate the launch. The local co-op didn’t have a big enough cake for the occasion so instead they decided to fashion chocolate boat cakes from random chocolate ingredients… awesome stuff! Now what you waiting for, get your copy here while it is on sale and tell your video game loving friends and family.

    Looks wonderful, really creative and lovely artwork (I don’t know if that is the right term for games scenery etc?!) well done to Mr A and his team, and great cakes too!

    Wow! That is truly amazing your husband made that game! Is he a developer by trade, or did he come up with the idea for the game? Either way they should release an iOS version that links in somehow!

      Hello Zach, thanks for saying so! He has worked in the industry for years, and runs Super Punk Games now as an indie developer. I think iOS is definitely on the cards!

I'd love to know your thoughts!
