The Magnificent Trufflepigs is a singular metal-detecting narrative journey recreation from the lead designer of All people’s Gone to the Rapture.

The newly introduced recreation – which is a collaboration between ex-The Chinese language Room developer Andrew Crawshaw and his new studio, Thunkd, and writer AMC Video games – takes place on an English farm the place you’re tasked with uncovering buried treasures and chatting to your folks by way of walkie-talkie.

The sport is dropped at life with an all-star solid, too: you play Adam (voiced by Arthur Darvill, who you could acknowledge from Dr Who), and also you’ll be chatting with Beth (performed by Luci Fish). Take a look at the sport’s first teaser trailer beneath.

Instantly, we’re getting Firewatch vibes from this – a seemingly easy-going, laid-back recreation with a touch of one thing not-quite-right brooding beneath.

“A primary-person, romantic, metal-detecting recreation, The Magnificent Trufflepigs has gamers taking the function of Adam, a sharp-witted however compassionate man returning to his childhood village of Stanning,” reads an outline of the sport from its press launch.

“There he joins a girl named Beth (voiced by Luci Fish of Protected Home and One other Eden) on her mission to unearth a neighborhood treasure. However all just isn’t because it appears, and gamers should select how Adam responds as cracks start to seem in Beth’s fairy story plans.”

Apparently, the sport’s story revolves round Beth’s try to rekindle a childhood sense of journey. A few years in the past, she discovered an earring whereas metal-detecting on a neighborhood farm – this discovery made her really feel alive, and introduced her 5 minutes of fame, as well. Now Adam has been roped in to try to discover the opposite, matching earring. However in trying to find this treasure the duo ‘dig up way more than they bargained for’.

Color us intrigued.
