    Turn to 400 - The Fighting Fantasy documentary film

    Turn to 400 - The Fighting Fantasy documentary film: Fighting Fantasy was born 30 years ago, Ian Livingstone & Steve Jackson started a role playing phenomenon. This film tells their story.In 1982, Ian and Steve finally saw their first Fighting Fantasy book hit the shelves. Warlock of Firetop Mountain sold out in record time. Before too long the publisher was asking for more titles and soon after that Ian and Steve’s books topped the best sellers charts. The series propelled them to become overnight celebrities in Britain and went on to sell over 16 million copies worldwide. It was translated into more than 20 languages.

    Along the way, Steve and Ian lived in a van on the streets of London, battled adversity with the bank managers, got by on a dribble of money and worked out of an office/shop/mail order room the size of a bread-bin. Neither ever stopped being friends and both are avid gamers to this day – this is the story of two men whose dreams paid off. We’re going to create a 60 minute documentary which details Steve and Ian’s background, the early days of Games Workshop and the decisions which they made. You’ll see a group of people dedicated to games, and see how the Fighting Fantasy phenomenon took off and how for many of the people involved it was something so much more than just another series of books. We’ll see what happened to the artists involved in FF, and how Steve and Ian themselves went on to do so much more in the same field. We’ll touch on Lara Croft, Lionhead, Sorcery, Eidos and so much more…
