The Magnificent Trufflepigs is a Metal-Detecting Romance from Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture Lead

Starring Doctor Who and Legends of Tomorrow actor Arthur Darvill.

Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture was one of my favorite games in 2015. So by association, I’m already intrigued by The Magnificent Trufflepigs. Because it’s a new game from Thunkd, a UK-based studio led by Andrew Crawshaw, who was the lead designer on Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture.

The Magnificent Trufflepigs stars DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’s Arthur Darvill as Adam and Safe House’s Luci Fish as Beth, as the two attempt to unearth some hidden treasure…with Adam’s handy metal detector.

The game’s story focuses on Beth’s attempt to rekindle a childhood sense of adventure. Many years ago, she found an earring while metal-detecting on a local farm. It brought her brief fame and—most importantly—it made her feel special. But she never found the earring’s match, so she’s hatched a plan to invite Adam back into her life… leading them to dig up much more than she bargained for.

In other news:

The Magnficient Trufflepigs is the second game under AMC (the TV channel, not the theater chain) Games after last year’s Airplane Mode.

“AMC Games is continuing its goal of giving voice to unique creators,” said Clayton Neuman, vice president of Games for AMC. “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 is bringing The Magnificent Trufflepigs to PC and Switch in early summer.
