's Fighting Fantasy series of interactive Gamebooks - "The adventures in which YOU are the Hero!" - have been published in 27 countries in 23 languages and have sold over 16 million copies.
Talisman of Death, one of the best-known Fighting Fantasy adventures, is the latest minis title from Laughing Jackal. Talisman of Death has also been the most controversial title in the series, with gory passages quoted by the Evangelical Alliance in their campaign to have Fighting Fantasy books banned as unsuitable for children.
Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death takes you to the once peaceful world of Orb, which is now in terrible danger. Dark forces are working together to unleash the awesome might of the Evil One. Your mission is to destroy the Talisman of Death before the dark lord's minions reach you. But beware! Time is running out!
Most of us here at Laughing Jackal are massive Fighting Fantasy fans. In fact for many of us, our earliest gaming memories are sitting down with a pen, some paper and 2 D6 to play through these hugely addictive adventure books. So, you can imagine our excitement when the chance came for us to craft a PlayStation minis based on such true gaming classics.
We've really pulled out all the stops to ensure that in addition to the original dice-based gameplay and beautifully presented artwork, there's also an all new tile-based combat system and a Test your Luck game for those of you who want to challenge your skills.
The game even features a new Log Book and inventory to help you keep track of everything that has happened in your adventures throughout the magical world of Orb.
With more games in the series to follow, Laughing Jackal's Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death is the perfect way to start the journey into the immersive world of the legendary Fighting Fantasy series.
