The game is based on a Tintin comic with the same name, Herge's twentieth album, which first appeared in 1958. It was chosen for a game because it stands out from the others. At the time of writing/drawing, Herge was having psychological treatment because of a depression. The comic is more complex than the others and Tintin is almost on his own (with a few compagnons) for the whole story.
