    Daedalic got Middle-earth license, and the first game will be a Gollum action adventure game to be released in 2021: https://venturebeat.com/2019/03/25/the-lord-of-the-rings-gollum-daedalic-entertainment-announcement/

    This is NOT the Poki's new game, fortunately. From a long interview with Daedalic CEO: https://venturebeat.com/2019/03/25/...-fichtelman-dives-into-middle-earth/view-all/

    When I think of Lord of the Rings, and at the same time I also think of action, the first thing that comes to mind is... Gollum.

    And their solution is to make the same mistakes Telltale did?

    Wild prediction: there will be a scene where Gollum sneaks into Arwen's room and fingers her in her sleep.

    This isn't even that bad of an idea when you think about it. Gollum has actually seen a lot of shit and been to like half of the Middle Earth before and after losing the One Ring.

    Gollum would make for a good first person stealth game.

    They should just go wild with it. Fuck the books - Gollum's in your hands now and he's taking control of this shit. Shiv Frodo and get the ring, blackjack a Nazgûl before stealing his mount, sabotage the goddamn eye of Sauron with blackpowder before setting Gollum up as the new leader of Mordor. Also add stats so that I can pump points in STR and turn Gollum into 150kg of pure muscle.

    They should have a mini-game where Gollum steals babies for a midnight snack like in the books.

    All these endless video games with gollums and hobbits and we still don't have a Time Bandits video game. Tragedy.
