Tin Man Games continue to make impressive progress on their forthcoming digital reimagining of the original Fighting Fantasy gamebook by Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson – The Warlock of Firetop Mountain.
Featuring over 100 3D figurines of heroes and monsters, a new simultaneous turn-based combat system, and a procedurally-generated Maze of Zagor, this is exactly what a new digital version of a classic gamebook should be: faithful to the original in tone and general content, yet creatively fresh and exciting in structure, style and player immersion. The game appears to offer fantastic choice and replayability, delivering a wealth of customised content to satisfy both newcomers who are yet to explore the mountain, and the old and experienced fans who have previously ventured into the underground environments of this legendary gamebook.
Released at the end of August via Steam, an app version of the game will then be completed for smartphones and tablets. You can find more information at the developer’s website, or on their Kickstarter campaign page.
