The metal-detecting narrative game will also release on Nintendo Switch later this summer.
AMC Games announced today that its second title, The Magnificent Trufflepigs, will be releasing on June 3rd, 2021 for PC. From the lead designer of Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, The Magnificent Trufflepigs is a first-person, romantic metal-detecting game starring Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who, Broadchurch). Along with the Steam launch, the game will also be available on Epic Game Store soon after. A Nintendo Switch release is slated for later this summer.
The Magnificent Trufflepigs tells the story of Adam (played by Darvill) returning to his childhood village to help a woman named Beth on her journey to unearth a local treasure. Crafted by the new Leeds, U.K.-based studio Thunkd, The Magnificent Trufflepigs lets players fulfill a lifelong (or newly founded) dream to metal detect while experiencing a tightly-paced dramatic narrative in an idyllic English countryside.
