When one says the words 'bloody-oath-strewth that was a gripping Aussie drama', you may assume that one is talking about the latest series of Underbelly -- a show that does a decent job of telling stories from the Australian criminal underworld. But now, believe it or not, there is actually an Underbelly video game in the works.
It's a mobile game -- for iOS, Android and mobile devices -- and it's apparently a strategic game of tactics, a stylised version of cops and robbers.
It's called Underbelly: Skirmish and will be produced by digital production company The Project Factory.
"The intense drama of the award-winning Underbelly television series is a natural extension into the gaming platform arena," said Jennifer Wilson, from The Project Factory.
"We have been delighted to work with Screentime and bring our digital and social TV expertise to create a new level of engagement for the loyal Underbelly audience.
"We wanted the game to appeal to Underbelly fans, but also to the broader game-playing audiences worldwide."
The game itself will cost $1.99 for iPhone and $2.99 for iPad, but also promises to feature in-app purchases that allow you to take shortcuts. Yep, it's one of those games.
Just so you're prepared for the horror, we thought we'd remind you what happened the last time a video game was made based on a famous Australian TV show.
