Latest News - 27th October 2010

As promised this evening we are delighted to present news that Laughing Jackal (a UK-based development studio) are currently working on an all-new PSN minis project for PS3 and PSP based on the Fighting Fantasy series of game books. The first title is based on the classic book, ‘Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death’.

The first game being produced (they 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.

To keep both existing fans and newcomers happy with their treatment of the license, Laughing Jackal have included ‘Classic’ and ‘New’ game modes. The ‘Classic’ game mode very closely emulates the format of the original books, while the ‘New’ mode adds a range of all-new features to really capitalise on the console medium, providing greater visual excitement and giving power to the player, rather than to arbitrary ‘virtual dice rolls’ which the player can’t influence.

Exciting features in the first PSN minis Fighting Fantasy title include:

· ‘Classic’ mode – experience Fighting Fantasy in its original format, with classic dice-rolling combat.
· ‘New’ game mode – featuring additional game features exciting combat and brand new SKILL tests.
· Brand new character creation system, combining the best of the old with all-new presentation.
· Character Biographies – learn more about the people and creatures encountered on your adventure.
· Item Biographies – gain insight into the uses and pitfalls of the various items you’ll find.
· Page Biographies – Keep track of which areas of the book you’ve visited, and exactly what you did there.

Keep checking the Official website and our Laughing Jackals PSN update page and comments area HERE for more details on all these new features and more screenshots below over the coming weeks!

Download the most unusual Fighting Fantasy yet on iTunes...

You begin this adventure not knowing where you are or who you are. All you know is that you are some kind of creature of instinct, understanding little. During the course of the adventure, it may be possible for you to begin to control your bestial nature, to find out more about yourself, and even to learn your destiny. But even if you know all this, success is by no means certain, for the traps and terrors of Trolltooth Pass are many ... Are you ready — to become the Creature of Havoc?
