Peaky Blinders: Mastermind
Curve Digital have announced that Peaky Blinders: Mastermind will be released on August 20th in Europe and North America.
Here’s the latest trailer, some more details, and a list of key features for the game:
Peaky Blinders: Mastermind is a puzzle-adventure game based on the multi-award-winning TV show, developed by celebrated independent studio FuturLab, in collaboration with the creative and production teams behind Peaky Blinders, the independent production company Caryn Mandabach Productions.
Taking place immediately before the events of the show’s very first season, players will join the Shelby family’s criminal organisation as they discover a sinister plot to put Tommy out of business.
Players must plan and enact strategies by taking direct control of key members of the Shelby family simultaneously over the same timeline, moving characters into position at exactly the right moment in order to navigate challenging scenarios.
In Peaky Blinders: Mastermind, 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. It’s a bold take on the series that suitably impressed the show’s distributor Endemol Shine.
- Witness the rise of Tommy Shelby as the true leader of the Peaky Blinders in early 20th century Birmingham
- Utilise Tommy’s prowess for planning to set up complex scenarios
- Control Tommy, Arthur, Polly and more on the ground as they pull off mission after mission

With fully customisable global and local leaderboards, challenge your friends to beat your best times across more than 100 levels, or even the world!
A continuous challenge, OkunoKA Madness will have you jumping, running and using elemental abilities at breakneck speed to traverse a corrupted land and defeat your mortal enemy, the Os. Unlock a huge roster of new characters, all with unique abilities, to transform the way you move and learn new ways to play. With countless hidden secrets and insane boss fights you’ll harness KA’s immortality to perform mind-numbing acrobatics and ultimately save the universe!
