The Wizard is coming to Oz. Or at least, Jonathan Green – popular author of the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks – has signed on to write for Melbourne-based video games studio, Tin Man Games (TMG).

And much like Dorothy, Toto and the Yellow Brick Road, the path ahead for this exciting partnership promises to be quite an adventure.

Highly regarded for his 17-year association with the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, Green is currently writing the seventh TMG Gamebook Adventures title, Temple of the Spider God, which is due for release in July.

Green is well known to devotees of the gaming genre having created the Pax Britannia series and writing gamesbooks set in universes such as Doctor Who and Star Wars.

The creative partnership was announced at the recent Penny Arcade Expo East in Boston, and for Tin Man Games’ creative director, Neil Rennison, it is a dream come true.

Rennison, who started Tin Man Games just 18 months ago, grew up reading Fighting Fantasy gamebooks.  But even he could not have imagined that one day he would be collaborating with one of the most popular Fighting Fantasy authors.

The venture is also an exciting opportunity for Green, who recently commended Tin Man Games on the huge impact it has had on the worlds of interactive fiction and iPhone apps in such a short space of time.

Sounds like dreams that you dare to dream really do come true, after all.
