THE MAGNIFICENT TRUFFLEPIGS
The Magnificent Trufflepigs is a first-person, romantic, metal-detecting game. You play as Adam, a sharp-witted but compassionate man returning to his childhood village of Stanning. There he’ll help a woman named Beth on her mission to unearth a local treasure.
As cracks begin to appear in Beth’s fairy tale plan for everything, you’ll delve into her history and discover all may not be as it seems. And you’ll have to choose how Adam responds to Beth as she faces her demons.
Gameplay combines laid-back metal detecting and exploration with a strong interpersonal narrative, all set in a beautiful English countryside. The Magnificent Trufflepigs is a game about trying to find something, and the tone it sets is like a typical English summer: mostly pleasant, but with stormy moments that threaten to ruin everything.
Starring Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) as Adam and Luci Fish (Safe House, Another Eden) as Beth.
In this game you will meditatively explore a peaceful English farm, finding “treasures” (mostly rubbish) with your detector. After digging something up, you can sharing photos of your finds with Beth.
The player can chat with Beth via walkie-talkie and instant message, slowly unravelling a mystery through interesting narrative choices. As the game proceeds, you’ll learn about Beth’s hopes and fears and direct the conversation to root out the truth.
