Tintin Au Tibet

Tintin Au Tibet - Game BoyTintin au Tibet is the twentieth volume of The Adventures of Tintin, the comic series by Belgian cartoonist Hergé. It was serialised weekly from September 1958 to November 1959 in Tintin magazine and published as a book in 1960. Hergé considered it his favourite Tintin adventure and an emotional effort, as he created it while suffering from traumatic nightmares and a personal conflict while deciding to leave his wife of three decades for a younger woman.

The story tells of the young reporter Tintin, in search of his friend Chang Chong-Chen, who the authorities claim has died in a plane crash in the Himalayas. Convinced that Chang has survived and accompanied only by Snowy, their guide, and Captain Haddock, Tintin crosses the Himalayas to the plateau of Tibet, along the way encountering the mysterious Yeti.

The Tintin in Tibet video game is based on the storyline of the same title from the series The Adventures of Tintin. It was one of a series of two games released, the other being Prisoners of the Sun and came out on the Super NES, Game Boy, Game Gear and the Mega Drive by late 1995, followed by a version for PC (MS-DOS and Windows 95) in 1996 and even the Game Boy Color in 2001.
