Tin Man Games is a developer specializing in digital gamebooks – interactive fiction/RPG style games where you control the story. In late 2009, Neil Rennison got in touch with Ben Britten. They met in a bar and decided to make gamebooks for iOS. Their first title, An Assassin in Orlandes, was released in March 2010. The next five titles in the Gamebook Adventures series released over the following 18 months.
After that Tin Man continued with a strong release schedule, and at GCAP 2011 made the announcement that they had secured the rights to 2000 AD’s Judge Dredd for the upcoming Judge Dredd: Countdown Sector 106. This followed on in August 2012 when Tin Man was able to able to announce that they were working with Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson to produce titles in the beloved Fighting Fantasy series.
Continuing to work with Steve and Ian on Fighting Fantasy, as well as Tin Man’s own gamebooks, the company has experimented with the style in the dynamic, comic-styled Appointment With FEAR. They have also worked with Ryan North on developing a digital version of To Be or Not To Be, a chooseable-path adventure version of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
