The Magnificent Trufflepigs Coming to PC June 3


The second title from AMC Games, the world of Thunkd’s The Magnificent Trufflepigs will make its way to the PC on June 3, 2021.

Designed by the lead designer of Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, this first-person, romantic metal-detecting game features the talents of Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who) as Adam in the idyllic English countryside. Returning home, he helps a woman named Beth (Luci Fish, Safe House) on her journey to uncover a local treasure. Along the way, players will be able to take a deep dive into Beth’s history, soon learning that not everything is what it seems.

Gameplay has players using a metal detector in a laid-back fashion while exploring its world. Trying everything together is an interpersonal narrative with both walkie-talkie and instant message communication. Kevin Penkin, who previously worked on Necrobarista, was brought on to compose The Magnificent Trufflepigs’ original, dynamic score.
