The Adventures of Tintin by Gameloft

From Touchgen

The game recreates one of the most famous episodes in Hergé’s comic strip for the first time on mobile platforms. Combining mystery, exploration and humor, it follows intrepid reporter Tintin, his faithful companion Snowy, and his inseparable friend Captain Haddock in search of treasure lost in the wreckage of “The Unicorn”.You’ll experience familiar Tintin characters and environments in an authentic adaptation of the cutting-edge technology used in the film.

I am ridiculously stoked for this game. The console version looks amazing, but frankly just the fact that you'll get to play in Herge's universe is very, very exciting to me.

Hi David

I so hope they do not screw this up, the graphic novels are great and I hope the movies will be too.

Good to know this. Good idea to put the Hergé’s comic strip into game. I'll stay tuned for more information as the gameplay, music and graphics.

Yess Tintin! And one of my favorite stories too!

So if this is Gameloft... is it Unreal engine powered? Is the console one UE?

That's how it starts. The fever. The DOOT DOOT

Yes, Gameloft is making it.

Btw, I didn't know you people in the states would know about Tintin. I thought it was only popular in Europe.

Anyway I'm a fan of Tintin, I read nearly all the comics as a kid so I'm looking forward to playing this game. Hopefully gameloft won't let us down.

Here's a gameplay trailer for the console version.
