Over the many generations of video games, software based on popular TV shows and other forms of media have had varied level of success. Ranging from Batman Arkham Asylum to The X Files, each product seeks to entice fans of the franchise to buy the game or introduce new fans by allowing gamers to interact with their universe from an interactive perspective. Peaky Blinders Mastermind is based on the BBC and Netflix show Peaky Blinders, focuses on the main cast as they attempt to go about their regular business, wheeling and dealing and trying to stay alive in the streets of Birmingham post World War 1.
Peaky Blinders Mastermind takes place before the first series of the TV show. When Tommy Shelby, the leader of the Peaky Blinders is framed for a crime he didn’t commit, it is up to him and the rest of his family to clear him of the blame and discover the true culprit. For the most part, the story fits perfectly into the mythos of the show, giving us a deeper look into the character’s personalities and backstories that were not explored during the main series.
