Livingstone writing new Fighting Fantasy book {Fighting Fantasy}

Good news everyone! Fighting Fantasy/ Games Workshop/ Eidos god Ian Livingstone has announced that he is hard at work penning a new Fighting Fantasy book to coincide with the 30th anniversary of The Warlock of Firetop Mountain. 

This will be Livingstone's first original FF gamebook since Eye of the Dragon in 2005, but he has of yet to come up with a title. He said that it's possible that he may give the fans a choice of two and have them vote on it.

Today I've spent 12 hours working on my new Fighting Fantasy book. Writing branching narrative is hard work. I'm getting too old for this!

The new book will be released in August, but until then Livingstone is giving fans updates via Twitter, including live tweeting brief passages.

Live: 277 If you want to carry on running towards the ladder, turn to 134. If you want to retreat back through the double doors, turn to 249

When I got in touch with him for some clarification, he told me that he's currently not thinking of another book after this one. But we'll see how it goes, eh?

 Actually I am adding some new twists to a couple of sections of the 30th anniversary book. Not thinking of another one yet!

  1. Good to hear - having a grand old time playing City of Thieves again and again on the Kindle...a very rough ending to that one.
