A video game based on Quentin Tarantino’s 1992 crime drama Reservoir Dogs is on the way titled Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days.
The game is a top-down shooter from Big Star Games, in a partnership with Lionsgate, which sees players taking on the role of one of the film’s characters—Mr. Blonde, Mr. Blue, Mr. Brown, Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink, or Mr. White—and attempting to pull off heists.

Here’s more on Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days from the press release:
Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days combines all the drama and tension of the movie with a unique “Time Back” gameplay mechanic.
Adding a new level of strategy to the action-shooter genre, players will be able to rewind time to control each and every tactical move and splattering shot for all members of the team. Every time the clock is turned back the outcome of the heist hangs in the balance as each Reservoir Dog plays their role in finishing the job and completing the bloody escape.
“As huge fans of Reservoir Dogs, we’re very focused on creating a highly addictive experience that stays true to the tense, dramatic vibe of this unforgettable movie,” said Liam Patton, CEO, Big Star Games. “By taking control of different characters for overlapping bursts of time, players must utilize the strengths of each squad member to carry out the game’s missions, with every move and shot creating a butterfly effect on the overall outcome.”
Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days lets players take on the role of memorable characters Mr. Blonde, Mr. Blue, Mr. Brown, Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink, and Mr. White as they embark on several heists based on the movie. Using “Time Back” combat, players will need to rob, shoot and provide cover fire with the iconic cast of characters as they approach each of the fast-paced, bombastic action scenes and navigate the game’s dramatic twists.
Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days will let action-shooter fans experience:
Unique time-bending action: Employ a highly addictive strategic approach in tension-filled robberies and shootouts, controlling each character for overlapping bursts of time;
Six Infamous Movie Characters: Control Mr. Blonde, Mr. Blue, Mr. Brown, Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink, and Mr. White in a series of heists;
Heists and surprises based on the film: Experience adrenaline-filled heists with the Reservoir Dogs crew.
Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days will release later this year, first on Steam and then later on Xbox One.
