Asmodee Digital to Publish Nomad Games’ Fighting Fantasy Legends
PARIS — Mar. 14, 2018 — Asmodee Digital, the industry leader in digital board game entertainment, announced today that they have added Nomad Games’ Fighting Fantasy Legends to their ever-growing catalogue. Taking place in the Fighting Fantasy world of Titan — a monster-filled mythical world created by legendary authors Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone — Fighting Fantasy Legends is a card-based RPG that blends digital card game mechanics with interactive fiction. Players can find Fighting Fantasy Legends on Steam ($9.99/€9.99/£6.99), the App Store ($4.99/€5.49/£4.99), and Google Play ($5.49/€ 5.49/£4.99).
Based on three of the classic gamebooks City of Thieves, Citadel of Chaos, and The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, Fighting Fantasy Legends has players traveling across the dangerous continent of Allansia facing rogues, monsters, and piecing together clues to solve cryptic quests. The adventurer must navigate various locations from across all three books to complete their goals. At each location there are deadly decks of cards to face, with potential danger at every turn. The hero must power up their dice, increasing their luck or adding to their skill to help maintain their stamina and survive the unyielding Fighting Fantasy world.
“We are huge fans of the Fighting Fantasy series and the folks at Nomad Games have done an excellent job at making a game that stays true to the lore” says Philippe Dao, Chief Marketing Officer of Asmodee Digital. “We’re honored to take over publishing responsibilities for such a storied universe, and we look forward to supporting Fighting Fantasy Legends for years to come.”
Ian Livingstone, co-creator of Fighting Fantasy, said, “In Fighting Fantasy Legends, Nomad Games have created a thrilling solo adventure by capturing the danger, detail and excitement of our gamebooks, re-imagining the experience for digital platforms. I’m delighted that Asmodee Digital will be publishing Fighting Fantasy Legends, leveraging their renowned expertise to take the game to new global audiences.”
Steve Jackson, co-creator of Fighting Fantasy said, “Ian and I are proud to have Asmodee publishing the Fighting Fantasy series of gamebook adventures. When I look at Asmodee Digital’s catalogue of e-boardgames, I find many of my own favorites, like Ticket to Ride. The Fighting Fantasy solo RPG series will fit comfortably into the existing range, but it’s not a straight conversion from the solo RPG format. Nomad developed an entirely new game design, creating an RPG card game in a style that fans have not seen before.”
Fighting Fantasy celebrated its 35th anniversary last year with the launch of Fighting Fantasy Legends. The game has been well-received by fans and critics alike with an average 4.5-star rating on the App Store and Google Play and “Mostly Positive” rating on Steam..
