The Smurfs

Publisher Microids and developer OSome Studio, in partnership with IMPS, have announced the signing of a publishing deal for a 3D action adventure game based on The Smurfs. The game will feature a new story and remain “as faithful as possible to the original material,” with “tons” of humor, thrills, friendship, suspense, and action.

“We are delighted for concluding this new partnership with IMPS!” Microids vice president Elliot Grassiano said in a press release. “Thanks to this trans-generational license and the talent of OSome Studio, a long time Microids partner studio which worked on several family games, we are confident in bringing together all gamers in the wonderful world of the Smurfs. The worldwide success met by The Smurfs will also allow us to increase our brand awareness overseas and position Microids as a major player internationally.”

IMPS president and founder (and daughter of The Smurfs creator Peyo) Veronique Culliford added, “I am very happy about this beautiful partnership, video games have always been my passion, because they combine playfulness and often learning.”

A release date for The Smurfs game was not announced.
