IDW Games has announced the upcoming release of King of the Creepies, a light-hearted gladiatorial combat card game for two to six players.

The fast-paced game includes numerous strategic elements, from building up combatants, wagering on battles, and the battles themselves. The game is designed to appeal to competitive and casual players, with simple mechanics, fun pop-culture parody in art and card text, and negotiation and deal-making. MSRP is $39.99, and will release in June.

IDW recently announced a partnership with Atari Interactive, Inc. to release tabletop games based on classic video game titles (see "IDW Games Powers Up with Atari").
