Deep Sea Monster Hunter:


There is nothing like sailing upon the sea at night with the knowledge that things larger than you and your craft are swimming beneath you. These thoughts have filled ocean-goers minds for centuries, fears writhing with tentacles and teeth and the inarguable reality that we are helpless in the water. Should the frail safety of your craft fail you, you will almost certainly die a most horrible death as you become a meal. All of this is enough to send panic coursing through your veins, and these are just the simple realities of the sea.

The tales that are dreamt of and told are worse. Much worse. These are the stories that LEVIATHAN is looking for.

Give us the Kraken. Give us giant sharks. Give us undiscovered depths, unexplored islands and all of the horrible things that live there. Give us any monster you can dream of that lives in or around the sea… Then give us the hunters that battle them.
