New Year Resolutions

It's the start of a New Year, a time when people traditionally look back over the past year and make plans for the future, promising themselves that they will achieve certain goals.

2017 was an epic year for Fighting Fantasy. For a start it marked the 35th anniversary of Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, which was celebrated with the series' return, courtesy of Scholastic Books, and a brand-new title by Ian Livingstone, The Port of Peril.



On top of that, there was the release of not one but two graphic novels, one of which compiled the Ian Livingstone's FREEWAY FIGHTER limited-run comic mini-series.

     

And then there were FF video games releases from Tin Man Games and Nomad Games.



2017 also saw the second FF convention, Fighting Fantasy Fest 2, take place in Ealing - at which YOU ARE THE HERO Part 2 was launched - along with various signings, most notably those held at Forbidden Planet in London.


There's still plenty more to look forward to in 2018, including another tranche of titles being release by Scholastic in April, including Charlie Higson's The Gates of Death!

So, what are your Fighting Fantasy-related New Year Resolutions?
