New iOS games based on cherished adventure book lore are whetted by senior industry mentors and will debut at Gadget Show Live 2012
Epic Games and Train2Game today announced they have secured the rights for the iOS games of Make Something Unreal Live to be based on the Fighting Fantasy series of role-playing gamebooks created by Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson. Make Something Unreal Live is an independent game development challenge that will enable four start-up studios to release their games on the App Store this spring. Under the "Fighting Fantasy" agreement, each team selects one book from the adventure series to serve as inspiration for its new App. The books chosen for Make Something Unreal Live are "The Warlock of Firetop Mountain", "The Citadel of Chaos", "Deathtrap Dungeon" and "Armies of Death". The new “Fighting Fantasy” games will be revealed and refined in a spectacular real-time conclusion at Gadget Show Live 2012, the premier consumer show taking place April 10-15, 2012 at the Birmingham NEC in Birmingham, UK.
