Penny Dreadfuls: Sweeney Todd is an upcoming hidden object adventure from PlayPond, the same team that gave us the wonderfully creepy Mystery Legends: Sleepy Hollow. The game follows the hunt for Sweeney Todd, the murderous demon barber from 18th century London who first appeared as a character in the "penny dreadful" pulp novels of Victorian-era England.

The game features widescreen high-definition (HD) graphics, but the best part of all: according to PlayPond, the game’s cutscenes are presented as a musical – in other words, with songs and singing!

Penny Dreadfuls: Sweeney Todd is scheduled to launch this Christmas, right around Dec. 25. Check out some screenshots for the game, and a video trailer here, and chat about the game in our forum.
