A new puzzle-adventure game is on its way from Curve Digital in the form of Peaky Blinders: Mastermind. Witness the rise of Tommy Shelby as the leader of the Peaky Blinders in early 20th century Birmingham. Not only can you take control of Tommy, but Arthur, Polly and ar aft of others as you pull off mission after mission.
Mastermind is a puzzle-adventure game based on the multi-award-winning TV show. Set before the events of the first season, players will join the Shelby family’s criminal organisation as they discover a sinister plot to put Tommy out of business.
From the Press Release
It’s a crafty, credible, and most importantly creative take on the world of Peaky Blinders that, as James Marsden, Game Director at FuturLab explains, saw the development team use a key juncture in the series as the inspiration for the core mechanic employed in play:
“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,” details Marsden. “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.”
Players will be able to freely set and rewind each character’s path in order to tune all of their actions for perfect coordination, tactically utilising characters and stealth to solve increasingly complex puzzles.
Peaky Blinders: Mastermind will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC this summer.
