Curve Digital has revealed plans to release a video game based on hit TV drama Peaky Blinders. Called Peaky Blinders: Mastermind, it'll be launching on Switch and all other major platforms this summer.
The game is a puzzle-adventure title set right before the events of the show's first season. You'll be joining the Shelby family's criminal organisation as they discover a sinister plot to put Tommy out of business, taking control of key members from the family as you play.
James Marsden, Game Director at developer FuturLab, has shared the following:
"There’s a point in the show where Tommy Shelby explains he has no concern for the past, nor the future; all he cares about is a crucial moment he recalls the soldier’s minute. We designed our game around that idea, allowing the player to plan actions backward and forward in time, choreographing an ensemble cast of characters to synchronise their actions during these crucial moments. The player gets to feel like the smart and sophisticated leader that Tommy is, so we think becoming the mastermind will resonate with fans of the show and gamers alike."
Here's a quick feature list:
- Witness the rise of Tommy Shelby as the true leader of the Peaky Blinders in early 20th century Birmingham
- Utilise Tommy’s prowess for planning to set up complex scenarios
- Control Tommy, Arthur, Polly and more on the ground as they pull off mission after mission
We don't have an exact release date for this one just yet, but we'll make sure to keep an eye out for more news as it arrives.
