How To Sell a Game — Leviathan Warships Edition
Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have turned over a new leaf in Game Trailer development. While we’ve been privy to some wonderfully creative and overly dramatic promo videos over the years, (Oh, Dead Island…) never before has a game company so brilliantly played against the meta-narrative as Paradox has with their trailer for upcoming release Leviathan Warships.
If the ultimate purpose of the trailer is to sell a game to people otherwise disinclined to purchase it, consider the effect on this author to be super effective. The best move Paradox can possibly make at this point is to have whoever did that voice-over narrating the entire game, even if they only have a week-and-a-half to do it in.
