Microids and Pendulo Studios have revealed the first details and screenshots for Tintin Reporter – Cigars of the Pharaoh. Inspired by an iconic adventure from the comic book series “The Adventures of Tintin” created by Hergé selling more than 275 million units worldwide, this new video game will sign the return of the famous reporter to the interactive medium.
After meeting with the Egyptologist Sophocles Sarcophagus during a Mediterranean cruise, the famous reporter decides to investigate the Pharaoh Kih-Oskh’s tomb. From Egypt to India and Arabia, Tintin and Snowy will follow a lead on narcotics trafficking all the way to the far east.
This new adventure game aims to immerse players into the captivating comic book’s universe and make them the heroes of an epic action adventure masterpiece. With an art direction faithful to Hergé’s drawings, this game is lining up to be a jubilant adaptation.
Stéphane Longeard, CEO of Microids, said:
“Being able to work on an adaptation of the famous Belgian reporter’s adventure is a delight. We started working on the game a few years ago and we cannot wait to show more to our players worldwide. If I had one thing to add, I’d say that we’ll do everything in our power to pay tribute to Hergé’s work and offer the fans the adaptation of their dreams”.
Nick Rodwell, Director of Moulinsart, added:
“The production of a new immersive video game for PC and consoles carries the adventure legacy of the most famous reporter. Our ambition is first and foremost entertaining and friendly to please the whole family. Microids is the perfect partner to accompany Tintin for this new adventure!”
Microids plans to release this game in 2023.
