Microids announced a partnership with Moulinsart to developed a game based on popular comic book series The Adventures of Tintin. The collaboration has been in talks for some time. According to Microids CEO Stephane Longeard. The Adventures of Tintin game is coming to consoles and PC sometime in the future.
“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!”
According to Moulinsart game director Nick Rodwell, it will insert itself pretty well in the legacy of the most famous reporter’s adventures because of this collaboration.
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.”
This action-adventure game sees players transported into a whirlwind of incredible situations. Tintin and Snowy will explore numerous continents, doing deep seas diving in a submarine and even walking on the Moon. It features interactive adventures, for example.
Other iconic characters make an appearance in the game. Such as the renowned captain Haddock, fond of fine whiskey and sophisticated slurs, the genius professor Calculus. Thomson & Thompson will also appear.
