Gollancz, an imprint of the Orion Publishing Group with Liber Primus Games, the indie developer and creator of gamebook series Narborion Saga, today releases a new trailer and art assets of their new joint project – an addictive adventure gamebook based on the world-class novelist and Crysis 2 and Syndicate writer Richard Morgan’s book trilogy A Land Fit for Heroes, who so graciously sat down for an interview with us earlier this month.
Based on Richard Morgan’s trilogy of dark fantasy novels, The Steel Remains, The Cold Commands and The Dark Defiles – A Land Fit For Heroes is the new multiplayer interactive gamebook experience telling the story of three unlikely heroes with three interlocking storylines. In keeping with the gamebook adventure format, the reader decides upon their fates as they proceed through the narrative.
In the first of its kind, bestselling author Richard Morgan brings his dark and violent trilogy of novels to life as a three-player gamebook set in the world of A Land Fit For Heroes with the first book in the trilogy delving into the traumatic and tortured lives of the book’s protagonists.
A Land Fit For Heroes will be one of the first gamebooks of its kind to allow players to choose the sexual orientation of their character, which mirrors the diversity of Richard Morgan’s book trilogy characters. The gamebooks also aims to retain the graphically violent nature of combat and adult themes from the novels.
This morbid fantasy title is coming to the Google Play Store for Android devices, App Store for iPhone, iPad, iTouch and Amazon for Kindle Fire at the end of October. The title will also be launching on Steam for Windows PC in December.
