Microids has announced they are teaming up with Moulinsart to develop a brand new Tintin game for PC and console.
Previous adventures have seen Hergé’s famous reporter navigating the high seas, exploring new continents, deep-sea diving, and walking on the moon. Now, Tintin will embark on a new interactive escapade.
The as-yet-untitled game is based on the iconic comic book series and follows the exploits of Tintin and his loyal canine companion, Snowy. Although there are few details on the format of the game, Microids has revealed that the duo will be thrust into ‘a whirlwind of incredible situations and suspense’.
The company has also confirmed the game will feature a host of iconic characters, including Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus, and detectives Thomson & Thompson.
Commenting on the partnership with Moulinsart, Stéphane Longeard, CEO of Microids said:
“We are extremely happy to work on this co-production! 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!”
Nick Rodwell, director of Moulinsart director, added:
“The upcoming PC and consoles video game inserts itself pretty well in the legacy of the most famous reporter’s adventures. 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’s adventure »
More details on Tintin’s next adventure are promised soon.
