Microids and the company IMPS announced today the signing of a publishing deal for a game based on The Smurfs IP. This new 3D action-adventure game inspired by Peyo’s comic books and developed by OSome Studio will feature a brand-new story.
Alone or with friends, gamers will be able to dive in this exclusive adventure alongside the most iconic characters of this IP. To be as faithful as possible to the original material, players can expect tons of humor, thrills, friendship, suspense and of course, a lot of action.
Elliot Grassiano, Vice-president of Microids, said:
“We are delighted for concluding this new partnership with IMPS! Thanks to this trans-generational license and the talent of OSome Studio, a long time Microids partner studio which worked on several family games, we are confident in bringing together all gamers in the wonderful world of the Smurfs. The worldwide success met by the Smurfs will also allow us to increase our brand awareness overseas and position Microids as a major player internationally.”
Véronique Culliford, president and founder of IMPS and daughter of Peyo, added:
“I am very happy about this beautiful partnership, video games have always been my passion, because they combine playfulness and often learning» shares .”

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
