Publisher Microids has announced that it is partnering up with Moulinsart to bring roving investigative reporter Tintin and his faithful companion Snowy to PC and consoles with a brand new video game based upon Herge’s The Adventures of Tintin.
“We are extremely happy to work on this co-production,” states Microids CEO Stephane Longeard. “We have been willing to make this happen for quite some time. This announcement is the result of a creative process allowing us to define precisely how this project will take shape and the two companies will interact. This really is a dream come true for us. The Adventures of Tintin transported millions of readers worldwide and this opportunity will allow us to put our talents at the service of one of the biggest creators of the 20th century and its inked hero: Our team members are fans of the famous reporter and will do their best to pay this franchise a vibrant homage. We can’t wait to kick-off this project!”
“The upcoming PC and consoles video game inserts itself pretty well in the legacy of the most famous reporter’s adventures,” adds Nick Rodwell of Moulinsart. “Our ambition is to provide a mainstream audience with a fun and friendly game for everyone to enjoy. Microids is for us the ideal partner to bring to life this new Tintin adventure.”
This new action-adventure game will transport the player into a whirlwind of incredible situations and suspense hand in hand with the legendary Tintin and Snowy characters. Other iconic characters will join the cast like the renowned captain Haddock, fond of fine whiskey and sophisticated slurs, the genius professor Calculus and the finest detectives Thomson & Thompson.
Additional details such as the game’s title and artwork will be unveiled soon.
