AMC Games and Thunkd have revealed that The Magnificent Trufflepigs will soon see release on Nintendo Switch.
This first-person, romantic, metal-detecting game sees you play Adam (voiced by British actor Arthur Darvill), who is described as being “a sharp-witted but compassionate man returning to his childhood village of Stanning.”
He joins Beth (voiced by Luci Fish) on her mission to rekindle her childhood sense of adventure by unearthing a local treasure. Once brought brief fame for discovering an earring while metal-detecting on a local farm, she now wants to search for its match. However, all is not as it seems, and they end up digging much more than she had bargained for.
“AMC Games is continuing its goal of giving voice to unique creators,” explains Games for AMC vice president Clayton Neuman. “The Magnificent Trufflepigs is a dramatic narrative game with the maturity and nuance of critically-acclaimed shows seen across AMC Networks. I was blown away when I first read Andrew’s script, and I can’t wait for players to experience it, fully realized by our talented cast, later this year.”
Thunkd founder Andrew Crawshaw adds: “Thunkd is extremely proud of The Magnificent Trufflepigs, but gems like this can only be unearthed with the help of like-minded partners that are prepared to dig a bit deeper to find something special. Everyone at AMC Games and SundanceTV has helped to ensure that making our first game has been an experience that we’ll treasure.”
The Magnificent Trufflepigs will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in early Summer 2021.
