Microids and IMPS have announced that a new game based on The Smurfs is in development.
OSome Studio will develop this 3D action-adventure game which will take inspiration from Peyo’s comic books and have a brand-new story.
Whether playing alone or with friends, the experience promises to be “as faithful as possible” to the original material and be packed with humour, thrills, friendship, suspense and action.
“We are delighted for concluding this new partnership with IMPS!” enthuses Microids vice president Elliot Grassiano.
“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.”
IMPS president and founder Véronique Culliford adds: “I am very happy about this beautiful partnership, video games have always been my passion, because they combine playfulness and often learning.”
