German video game developer Daedalic Entertainment announced a new game called The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, which will be a prequel set years before Gollum loses his precious to Bilbo Baggins in a dark cave.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, LOTR: Gollum will be “an action-adventure game” that takes place in the years between Smeagol first finding the ring and before the events of The Lord of the Rings novels and films.

I%u2019m envisioning something like Black Mirror: Bandersnatch or Detroit: Become Human %u2013 a long-form story with branching narratives and real consequences based on the choices you make. That seems like the ideal way to tackle a game with this character at its center.
