Today, Branching Narrative and Nellyvision announced that Deathtrap Dungeon: The Interactive Video Adventure is on the way to Switch. It will be available in Q2 2023.
Deathtrap Dungeon: The Interactive Video Adventure is based on the classic Fighting Fantasy gamebook by Ian Livingstone. It stars British actor Eddie Marsan (Ray Donovan, The Fast and The Furious: Hobbs and Shaw, Deadpool 2), who acts as narrator and guide in this faithful recreation of the fantasy book.
Here’s some additional information:
Deathtrap Dungeon, arguably the most popular book in the Fighting Fantasy series, was originally released in 1984 and challenges the player to survive the Trial of Champions which takes place in the labyrinth of Fang, full of fiendish traps and deadly creatures set by the devious Baron Sukumvit.
Branching Narrative’s Deathtrap Dungeon offers unrivalled gameplay in the Interactive Fiction genre. Featuring two combat systems, the player can choose between the original mechanics used in the book, or opt for a more modern gaming style. Roll the dice, create your character and set your adventure in motion!
Matt Spall of Branching Narrative said: “Our innovative take on Deathtrap Dungeon is a choice-based adventure, presented as an interactive video storybook with the fantastic Eddie Marsan narrating the story and guiding players as they find their way through Baron Sukumvit’s treacherous corridors of power.”
We also have these words from Livingstone: “Deathtrap Dungeon has consistently been a fan favorite, so I am excited about the approach that Branching Narrative is taking in bringing my book to a new generation of players in a new format. Eddie Marsden is brilliant, and with the storytelling being an interactive rather than passive experience, this ain’t no Jackanory!”
Lastly, Marsan shared: “It’s an exciting challenge to guide Deathtrap Dungeon adventurers, both new and experienced, as they take on the perils of the deadly Trial of Champions.”
