SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TikGames today announced an agreement with Universal Partnerships & Licensing to develop and publish the first officially licensed video game based on the Chucky movie franchise. Currently in development, this interactive title is targeted to launch on console and PC digital distribution platforms this fall.
Utilizing an original storyline, players will have the opportunity to play as the killer doll and experience his exploits first hand while extending his gory legacy.

In the end, it will be up to the player to decide how many (or few) people survive this stealth-action romp.
