Microids and Moulinsart have announced that they are producing a brand new video game based on the excellent Tintin comics by Hergé. The game is in development for consoles and PC and will features a number of iconic characters who feature in the comics. Read on for the details:
“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.
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.”
Microids is proud to collaborate with Moulisart on this project as Stéphane Longeard, CEO of Microids comments further:

We can’t wait to kick-off this project!”
