Starring Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who, Broadchurch), players take the role of Adam returning to his childhood village to help a woman named Beth on her journey to find a local treasure. Crafted by the new Leeds, U.K.-based studio Thunkd, The Magnificent Trufflepigs lets players fulfill a lifelong (or newly found) dream to metal-detect while experiencing a tightly-paced dramatic narrative in an idyllic English countryside setting.
“The Magnificent Trufflepigs encapsulates Thunkd’s mission to deliver games that tell compelling, human-shaped stories that are also evening-sized so that they can fit into busy life styles,” said Thunkd’s director Andrew Crawshaw.
“This game is a meditation on life, the paths we take, and the people who make us what we are,” said Clayton Neuman, VP of Games for AMC Networks. “AMC Games is honored to have played a part in bringing Andrew’s vision to the surface, and we can’t wait for players to dig in.”
