Tin Man Games has released some more information, and some more screenshots, about its upcoming gamebook adaptation Appointment with F.E.A.R.

The game, which recently came second in Pocket Gamer's Big Indie Pitch event in Brighton, is a pretty big departure from the other entries in the series, taking a far more comic-book approach than its predecessors.

It's still based on a Fighting Fantasy book of the same name, but a new comic book engine is whirring away under the hood.

You play as a superhero going through your day to day routine. That routine includes locking fists with 30 villains, exchanging quips, and making choices that directly effect the outcome of the story.

There are special trading cards to collect and share across Facebook as well.

Neil Rennison, creative director at Tin Man Games is understandably excited about the new move.

"This is our first foray into a new area for interactive fiction and gamebooks. Appointment with F.E.A.R. cried out to be presented in a new and stylised way and as the new engine started coming together visually, we knew we were on to something pretty special. We’re looking forward to getting our teeth into some other comic book licenses in the future too!"

Appointment with F.E.A.R. Is set to hit the App Store, the Google Play Store, and the Amazon Appstore at the end of August. We will, of course, let you know when we've got a more concrete release date.
