Tin Man Games specializes in bringing gamebooks to life on mobile devices. Whether they be titles from the already existing Fighting Fantasy franchise of physical books, or the company’s own Gamebook Adventure series, they have gotten quite popular over the past few years. One of the classic Fighting Fantasy books will soon be a fully playable RPG as well thanks to the successful Kickstarter campaign Tin Man Games has done.
The 3D RPG will be based off of The Warlock of Firetop Mountain and judging from the previews on the Kickstarter page, it’ll take place in a top-down perspective similar to Diablo and torchlight style of games. In fact the development of the game, and the technology behind it, is pretty much done and the funding was for better art for the game. It isn’t surprising since the company has dealt with nothing but gamebooks, so the art is very different from that and going into a 3D RPG.
The Kickstarter campaign is already a success, with over $22K being donated to the cause and the goal only being just over $10K. So anything put towards the game’s funding will all be for the stretch goals. Some of the rewards for backers are pretty cool as well.
The Warlock of Firetop Mountain will initially be launched on PC, Mac and Linux via Steam and be DRM-Free. After that the game will be brought over to smartphones and tablets for mobile gamers to enjoy.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
