Dread X and AMC to Create Creepshow Video Game

The game will be based on Shudder’s Creepshow Television series

In February, AMC’s Creepshow, based on the 1982 film directed by George A. Romero, was renewed for a fourth season. Now the horror anthology is getting a video game adaptation. 

Romero’s film included five macabre tales of horror written by famed horror novelist Stephen King. The film earned $21 million at the box office, the equivalent of $64 million today. The film was followed up by Creepshow 2 in 1987. In 2019 season one of Creepshow, a television series based on Romero’s film, debuted on Shudder. And it is this series, produced by AMC, that the video game will take inspiration.

Dread X onboard

Game publisher Dread X is involved in the title’s development, with Brian Clarke serving as the project’s creative director. Clarke, the solo indie developer behind Darkstone Digital, previously created The Mortuary Assistant, a first-person horror game published by Dread X, which is now set to receive a live-action film adaptation.

“I’m extremely excited to be a part of such a fun project. I’ve always loved Creepshow’s format, and the idea of driving the cohesion of multiple perspectives on horror is really compelling to me. I feel honored to have been asked to be a part of this. I can’t wait to jump in and bring the best I can to such a great IP,” says Clark.

The Creepshow video game is expected to release in 2024. As of yet, it is unknown whether the game will be a direct adaptation of episodes from the show or whether the title will introduce brand new storylines. Dread X is known for its retro-inspired horror game collections, which compile various indie horror titles and thus seem a perfect fit to create a game adaptation of a horror anthology series like Creepshow. Both Dread X and AMC have hinted that more announcements will be made in the next few months.
