The Adventures of Tintin Video Game in the Works

-

To celebrate its 35th anniversary, publisher Microids has announced that a video game based on the popular comic book series The Adventures of Tintin is in development!

The game, featuring the return of Tintin and Snowy, is being created for both consoles and PC. Microids is teaming with Moulinsart, the company that handles the work of Hergé. Published by Casterman, The Adventures of Tintin has sold more than 250 million books.

Microids says the action-adventure game will transport the player into a whirlwind of incredible situations and suspense 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.

After navigating all seas, exploring numerous continents, doing some deep sea diving in a submarine and even walking on the Moon, the most famous reporter is ready for some brand new interactive adventures.

In making the announcement, Microids CEO Stéphane Longeard, 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, Moulinsart’s director, said: “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.

He added: “Microids is for us the ideal partner to bring to life this new Tintin’s adventure.”

Microids has worked with studios like Pendulo Studios (Yesterday Origins, Runaway, Blacksad: Under the Skin) and Eden Studios (Gear.Club Unlimited 1 & 2, Test Drive). They have also worked with authors such as Benoît Sokal (Amerzone, Syberia series), Paul Cuisset (Flashback, Operation Stealth), Philippe Dessoly (Mr Nutz, Toki), and Pierre Adane (Top Spin, Mr Nutz, Toki).

The company has also worked on licensed titles like Asterix & Obelix, Titeuf, Garfield, and Blacksad.

The Adventures of Tintin video games go as far back as 1989, when side scroller Tintin on the Moon was released. That was followed in 1995 by Tintin in Tibet and Prisoners of the Sun the following year.

In 2001, the character appeared in Tintin: Destination Adventure, which was released for the PlayStation and PC. Ten years later, The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (buy at Amazon) was released by Ubisoft in October of 2011. The game was a tie-in to the Steven Spielberg-directed film of the same name.
