With Season 2 wrapping up just a few days ago, you’re probably right about now missing “Penny Dreadful.” Am I right about that? If I am, then you’ll be pleased to know that Showtime and Midverse Studios are partnering on a game based on the series, coming soon to mobile devices. Read on!
From the Press Release:
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.
The game, under license by CBS Consumer Products, is currently under development and will be launched this fall for mobile phones and tablet devices. Penny Dreadful: Demimonde will be released via the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, and Amazon Kindle store, with a Facebook version of the game set to follow.
“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 demimonde – 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.”
Virk added, “We also expect that the mobile game will introduce the unique characters of ‘Penny Dreadful’ to new players that may never have watched the show. Mobile and social games are becoming an important part of how IP holders engage with existing and potential fans.”
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.
Penny Dreadful: Demimonde will be built and delivered on Midverse’s new multi-media gaming engine, nicknamed the Undead Engine because of its ability to bring supernatural creatures/characters to life. The Undead Engine is a set of inter-connected modules that allow Midverse to take content from TV shows and Hollywood films and quickly create unique mobile and online games, each with their own look and feel, as well as unique gameplay elements.
The game will allow you to:
- Explore: Complete puzzles and quests from each episode of the show.
- Collect: Assemble your own team of “dreadful” characters, Tarot cards, and artifacts
- Compete: Battle other players’ teams on different battlefields
Fans will be able to sign up for the beta for Penny Dreadful: Demimonde this summer by visiting www.midversestudios.com and see teaser trailers and updates as they are released throughout the summer.

- Nick Greeley Nice clickbait. It’s OLD news that H20 started as a passion project for her, but everything fell apart when Carpenter and Hill didn’t come back, and Moustapha Akkad refused to let the writers kill...

- One-Eye I remember it as being one of the better post SCREAM slasher movies. I certainly haven't watched it since then.
