The Warlock of Firetop Mountain adds a new element to the Fighting Fantasy series (PAX Aus 2015)

Tin Man Games continues its digital adaptations of the classic Fighting Fantasy game books from Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone. This time it's the 1982 classic, "The Warlock of Firetop Mountain".

Now Playing: Watch this: Warlock of Firetop Mountain at PAX Aus 2015

PAX Australia 2015 ran from October 30 to November 1 and once again proved that the gaming and geek culture show is an absolute mecca for the best that the independent gaming scene has to offer.

If you were in high school between 1980 and 1990, and if you were the kind of kid to hit the library, not the sport fields, then you'll probably know the Fighting Fantasy series.

While they could be uncharitably described as "Dungeons and Dragons for people with no friends" they were, for the time, a clever way for people to solo play in a fantasy setting.

Tin Man Games have worked on a number of gamebook titles, but "Warlock" is much more lavish. It introduces a brand new combat system Tin Man calls Gridbluff, which allows for simultaneous fast attacks.

The project is still being Kickstarted and, at the time of writing, was at over AU$35,000, of a desired AU$15,000, with 23 days still left to go. AU$30, $21 or £14 will bag you a digital copy of the game for PC, Mac or Linux,

Tin Man's producer and editor Kamina Vincent talked us through some of the new features in the video above.
