Children of the '80s will no doubt still have nightmares about Dark Crystal's evil Skeksis, and Netflix is preparing to give a whole new generation the willies thanks to a prequel TV series, which airs on August 30th.

That series is also getting its own Switch game in the form of Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics, which was shown off during today's E3 Direct. Created by BonusXP and En Masse Entertainment, the game takes the form of a tactical strategy adventure where you guide your plucky Gelflings through the vibrant, puppet-based fantasy world created by the late great Jim Henson. There's no release date as yet.
