Midverse Studios, a Silicon Valley mobile gaming company, announced that it is developing a game based on the SHOWTIME hit TV Series Penny Dreadful. The new game, called Penny Dreadful: Demimonde, will allow fans of the show to engage with their favorite characters and content from the series.
“With Penny Dreadful, SHOWTIME and series creator John Logan have created a beautiful and haunting world of supernatural creatures and storylines, all intersecting in Victorian London,” said Rizwan Virk, co-founder and CEO, Midverse. “But the real battles are happening in the demi-monde – a half-world between what we know and what we fear – and we look forward to bringing the unique creepy, intelligent style of Penny Dreadful to our mobile game.”
The gameplay in Penny Dreadful: Demimonde will be a unique combination of Collectible Card Game (CCG) and Puzzle role-playing game (RPG) mechanics. The puzzles are customized mini-games created for Penny Dreadful fans. Players of the game will be able to collect their favorite characters and creatures from the show, assemble them into a team and battle head to head against other players in tournaments and events.
