Starship Traveller

Tin Man Games’ fifth Fighting Fantasy digital gamebook app, Starship Traveller, written by Steve Jackson, and first published in 1983, Starship Traveller makes a digital return with all new artwork, game features and soundtrack. It can be downloaded now from the iOS App Store, Google Play and Amazon Appstore!

Sucked through the appalling nightmare of the Seltsian Void, the Starship Traveller emerges at the other side of the black hole into an unknown universe. YOU are the captain of the Traveller, and her fate lies in your hands. Will you be able to discover the way back to Earth from the alien peoples and planets you encounter, or will you and your crew be doomed to roam uncharted space forever?

Latest News 8th April 2014

The Warlock has very little to report at the moment as he is waiting for quite a few things to come to fruition. Tin Man Games are tweeting vigorously about the imminent release of Starship Traveller but news has not reached these shores and the American market seems to be getting a better look in than us at the Appointment with F.E.A.R app. The Fighting Fantazine is still outstanding as is the long awaited and the much overdue You are the Hero book by Jonathan Green.

You are welcome to contribute your news for me to share, a letter or send me your Fighting Fantasy related amateur adventures, artwork, short stories or Maps. If you are on Twitter do not forget to join us @fightingfantasy for more updates. The Warlock will be posting random tweets over the next few weeks to test your Fighting Fantasy knowledge.

Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone have both been confirmed as guests at UK Game Expo 2014 in Birmingham on Saturday 31st May but the time is yet to be confirmed.

Latest News 31st March 2014

If you agree that Ian Livingstone is a 'Champion of Innovation' then join the Warlock and vote for him now to win that category in the Games Industry Innovation Awards. He is up against tough competition but truly deserves it, show your support now! Voting closes on April 9th.

Steve Jackson should also be proud that his Sorcery! app on Android has made it to Editor's Choice on Google Play. Well done Steve.

Latest News 30th March 2014

Another great map submitted by Jim Fleet, this time of Freeway Fighter.

Latest News - 24th March 2014

The Warlock is proud to present his latest acquisition. It is an original preliminary pencil drawing by esteemed Fighting Fantasy artist Les Edwards for the cover of book 50, Return to Firetop Mountain by Ian Livingstone. Zagor is waiting. Dare YOU Return to Firetop Mountain!

Latest News - 13th March 2014

A little teaser from Tin Man Games. Starship Traveller is the next planned app release, no actual date yet but imminent. The artwork is certainly not what you'd expect compared to other Fighting Fantasy apps that have featured original pictures.

Latest News - 12th March 2014

The latest news from Inkle is they have announced that Sorcery! 1 - The Shamutanti Hills will be released on Android this month much to the delight of fans.

The Warlock has dusted off this article for you to enjoy from issue 160 of the SFX Magazine from 2007 that contains an interview with Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson.

Latest News - 8th February 2014


The Warlock likes to occasionally remind Fighting Fantasy fans young and old of the all the related books and collectables you can find out there in the big wide world. His alter ego has an established good old-fashioned website that is www.fightingfantasycollector.co.uk full of goodies to make even the hardiest treasure hunter envious. Although not updated in while, it is timeless and is still considered the place to go as a key reference. So, if you have ever wondered what all the different book covers look like, or curious as to what else Fighting Fantasy produced then look no further.

To compliment this, The Warlock, as the self-confessed curator of all such things also maintains a Collector’s Price Guide he publishes annually to help you in your quest of collecting and cataloguing all your Fighting Fantasy finds. You can also use it to value your collection. If you should have something in your collection that the Warlock hasn’t yet discovered please contact him at mail@fightingfantasy.com with the details.

May your stamina never fail!

Latest News - 3rd February 2014

Want to see your adventure, map, story or art published on this site? If yes, e-mail the Warlock mail@fightingfantasy.com and have your talent shared.

NEW! Beyond the Pit

The latest edition to the Advanced Fighting Fantasy series published by Arion Games landed  on my doorstep over the weekend following the successful Kickstarter campaign last year.  Beyond the Pit is the follow up to the original Out of the Pit published in 1985 (28 years ago!).

It contains another 250 monsters, quoted as "dangerous and intriguing denizens of Titan" on  the back page. Thanks to Andrew Wright for all his efforts in putting this together.

Good luck with your adventures and here's to number 3 as there are still many more to  catalogue.


Latest News - 19th January 2014

This week we have a new Armies of Death map from Jim Fleet and an amazing amateur adventure from 7 year old Sophie Frost (with a little help from her Dad) entitled 'The Roar of the Dragon'.

Latest News - 13th January 2014

If you have 16 minutes to spare and have an interest in the Steve Jackson Sorcery! app released by Inkle, then head over to Yogcast where the staff share their playthrough on Youtube.

Not been able to complete a Fighting Fantasy adventure and your dice rolls unfavourable? Well, look no further as your worries are over. A fan has posted Solutions on the Fighting Fantazine blog for all those looking for a way out.

Latest News - 5th January 2014

I hope all of you survived the festivities and fuelled enough to cope with another year of Fighting Fantasy goodness? Don't forget to send the Warlock your amateur adventures, Maps, artwork and stories to share on this site for other fans to enjoy. Please send all entries to mail@fightingfantasy.com for publication.

I for one am patiently waiting to receive two Kickstarter projects that funded last year. In fact YOU ARE THE HERO funded just over a year ago. Jonathan Green has eluded to the fact it has grown from an original word count of 30,000 to over 90,000 words and counting. It is currently with Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone for editing and fingers crossed will be with us soon (!). I am also reliably informed that BEYOND THE PIT is immanent and is only a week or so away from publication.
