Microids and Moulinsart today announced that they’re producing a new game based on the Tintin comics by Hergé. The game is currently in development for PC and consoles. The game will feature an action adventure that will set players on “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, the genius professor Calculus and the finest detectives Thomson & Thompson.
Microids is thrilled to announce the collaboration with Moulisart on this project as Stéphane Longeard, CEO of Microids comments further:
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, Moulinsart’s director is also shared his thoughts:
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.
Tintin is a young adventurer who travels the world with his dog Snowy. The comic saw its debut in Le Petit Vingtième in the 1920s, and has since become one of the most iconic cartoon characters in history.
