Silly Kid Games has announced a licensing agreement with King Features Syndicate to release a deckbuilding game featuring The Phantom.

"So many of our fans grew up loving The Phantom, and something about the unique history of this character told us we had an opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind adventure game," says Silly Kid Games Chief Creative Officer Justin Powell.

The game is currently in pre-production. Additional details, release date, and MSRP were not announced.

The Phantom started in 1936 as a newspaper comic strip, telling the story of the sole survivor of a brutal pirate attack who ultimately becomes a superhero.  With his trademark purple suit and mask, he has appeared in many incarnations over the years in comics (Dynamite has the license for new comics), film, TV, and video games.

Silly Kid Games is the maker of Golem Academy and the recently announced The Warriors: Turf War game (see "'The Warriors' Bring Rumble to the Tabletop").
