Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain also features a tile-based combat system as an alternative to the classic dice-based system, so whether you want a new take on the classic game, or wish to stay as close to the original experience as you can get without holding a D6, Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is the Mini for you!
STOP PRESS September 2011: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain has been announced as the next title to be released.
Following on from the success of Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death Laughing Jackal are delighted to announce their next Fighting Fantasy conversion for PlayStation Minis will be Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain.
First published in 1982 Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain was the first book in the Fighting Fantasy series, and introduced millions of readers to the world of Titan, which would be the setting for many of the Fighting Fantasy books to come.
Due to the feedback they’ve been receiving from fans of the series, Laughing Jackal have made several changes to the game since Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death including:
The Log Book now remembers which book you were in (Character, Item or Page)
The user can now return to the top of the page by pressing the up button when the first option is highlighted
A ‘Good’ generic alignment portrait has been added to Character Bios
A new mini game has been added to the end of the quest
But Laughing Jackal can’t reveal any more on that last point for fear of spoilers.
Laughing Jackal: PSN Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death
The first instalment of the legendary 16m selling Fighting Fantasy series of Gamebooks was launched on 17th August 2011, when Laughing Jackal released the PlayStation minis version of the controversial Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death.
The first game being produced (we already have plans to do more!) showcases Laughing Jackal’s plans for the franchise’s move onto Sony’s consoles and builds a platform on which they can produce more titles based on other favourite Fighting Fantasy game books in the future.
This PSN-exclusive version of Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death features a Tarot Card character generation system, and the classic dice-rolling rule set you know and love, with optional all-new Battle and Test Your Luck systems for bold adventurers to explore. The intuitive Inventory system and an all-new Log Book help you to easily track your progress through Orb's magical world, making this the perfect way to relive this classic series.
We’ll provide more detail on each area in the coming weeks, but we hope that this brief taster has got your minds ticking. :)
Once completed, the Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death minis title will be available on PS3 and PSP, via the PSN Store in Europe and America. Watch this space for more news on game content, release dates and pricing, as and when it happens!
