Gamebook Adventures Signs Up Fighting Fantasy Author

Tin Man Games is incredibly excited to announce at this year’s Penny Arcade Expo East in Boston that Jonathan Green, author of seven of the most recent Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, is currently writing the seventh Gamebook Adventures title. Gamebook Adventures 7: Temple of the Spider God will be released around July 2011.

Neil Rennison, Tin Man Games’ Creative Director, said: “I can’t really express how big a deal this is for us. I grew up reading Fighting Fantasy gamebooks and to have one of their most popular authors writing for our series is something I would never have imagined when we started Gamebook Adventures 18 months ago.”



Jonathan Green has a high pedigree writing background, creating the Pax Britannia series as well as writing gamebooks set in the Star Wars and Doctor Who universes. His contributions to Fighting Fantasy span 17 years and include Howl of the Werewolf, which was recently voted the fans’ favourite in a poll.

Jonathan Green said, “I am delighted to be working with Tin Man Games on their Gamebook Adventures series. In only a very short time Gamebook Adventures has made a huge impact on the worlds of interactive fiction and iPhone apps alike. Tin Man Games is a true trailblazer in the developing field of gamebook apps; they are really pushing the medium, making refinements all the time, and seeing how far they can take it.”



He continued, “What makes Gamebook Adventures something special is that every app is a brand new adventure, a unique experience and something that offers more than traditional print titles have been able to in the past. I for one can’t wait to see where they take the medium of interactive fiction in the future.”

Temple of the Spider God will follow the six preceding titles in the series on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. The first five adventures are already available on the App Store, while the sixth book, The Wizard of Tarnath Tor will be released next month.
