Penny Dreadful Is Getting a Collectible Card-Based Video Game! Penny Dreadful: Demimonde

Dreadfully exciting.

Your desire for more Victorian literary horror to go along with your Penny Dreadful TV watching experience is about to be sated: the series is getting its own puzzle/collectible card game in Penny Dreadful: Demimonde.

Players will go head to head with their favorite characters and monsters from the Showtime show in card form with puzzle and role-playing elements mixed in. Rizwan Virk, co-founder and CEO of Midverse, the developer behind the game, said,

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. 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.

There’s no release date yet, but dedicated Dreadfuls can sign up for the game’s beta on Midverse’s website and follow along with updates and trailers.
