The Warlock of Firetop Mountain (For Win / OSX / Linux)


I saw this mentioned over on EnWorld and after watching the video I had to share it here: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is coming to a computer near you via Steam.


From the Steam page:
The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is a tabletop adventure come to life! This fantasy solo RPG combines unique, simultaneous turn-based combat with a journey that changes based on each figurine you take into Firetop Mountain! Which hero will you take into Zagor's lair THIS time?  
The original 1982 Fighting Fantasy paperback by Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson has been transformed into an epic domain, with new areas to explore, characters to meet, and of course, monsters to slay! Zagor's home builds right before your eyes as you travel deep into the belly of the mountain.  
Each character has their own motivations for being in Firetop Mountain, changing the way the gamebook is written and choices presented. Combat is fought using the digital miniatures in a simultaneous, real-time system called GridBluff, and the game includes over 100 unique hero and monster figurines to discover.  
The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is currently in development. Follow here to keep up to date of upcoming news towards its release.

  1. Just when you think you have enough Steam games...

    I'm a massive FF fan so this looks like a must buy.

  2. I'd have preferred something that felt closer to the original books, without the hopping little mini/board-game feel. Still, looks intriguing.

    1. Tinman have a handful of other books that are straight-up book ports, including Forest of Doom and Starship Traveller, check that out if you're into plain book conversions.
