109w ago - Laughing Jackal Community Manager Ross Brierley has announced today alongside a video trailer (below) that Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is coming to PlayStation Network this month.
To quote: Since the release of Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone's Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death, we've been asked one question more often than any other:
"When are you doing The Warlock of Firetop Mountain?" So, I'm delighted to be able to answer this one finally.
We will be releasing an adaptation of the first book in the Fighting Fantasy series, Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone's Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain on the 9th November 2011, priced at £3.49/€3.99.
Since the release of Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death we've been keeping a close eye on our fans' thoughts on the game to see what we could be doing better, and that's why Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain will include the following features and improvements:
• 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
To quote: I bought a second controller and with it I was able to figure out how to get the controls working properly. So that is what I fixed in this update to Sketch Fight (which for the uninformed is a two player fighting game). Nothing else has changed.
In the future I’ll now always be able to test multiplayer PS3 games before releasing them
To quote: This is a first version of something I have put together for the soon closing Scenery Beta 2011 international homebrew showcase.
Sketch Fight is a simple two player fighting game with crudely done hand drawn graphics that are intended to look like something a person would doodle when trying to cope with the mind numbing repetition and tedium that is school.
I only have one PS3 controller at the moment so I haven't been able to test it properly... Let me know if it isn't controlling correctly.
Edit: Apparently when a second controller is connected both controllers effect both players. So it is pretty much unplayable. I'll probably buy a second controller sometime soon so that I can test multiplayer games myself.
123w ago - Laughing Jackal LTD Development Manager Daren Morgan has announced today that Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death is heading to PlayStation Minis alongside a video trailer below.
To quote: Steve Jackson & Ian Livingstone'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...
