Ubisoft have revealed that Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson were heavily involved with the making of video game version of The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn.

The two filmmakers are putting the finishing touches to the 3-D stop-motion animated movie, but have found time to help out with the game tie-in.

Ubisoft's senior producer Drew Quakenbush told Digital Spy: "We've been really lucky. Spielberg and Jackson are avid gamers, not just creative filmmakers."

"They've been really interested in what we've been building, what we've been making. We've seen them about every three months for the last two years. Showing our progress, gameplay, concept art.

"They understand gameplay, they understand how games are made, so we're able to show them early work and get some quality feedback."

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn is released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii later this year.
