Rebel Planet was the fifth Fighting Fantasy computer game to be published and was the first to be advertised as being developed by AdventureSoft and distributed by U.S. Gold.


The game was released in 1986. AdventureSoft had bought the licence to develop the game in 1985 and had originally intended to release it in February 1987 under the brand "Fighting Fantasy Software", to be distributed by the name they were using under licence, "Adventure International (UK)". It was also going to follow the release of Temple of Terror.[1]. However, after the bankruptcy of the American firm Adventure International, AdventureSoft began to use their own name more explicitly. They broke away from the "Fighting Fantasy Software" brand, engaged U.S. Gold as distributors, and placed their name on the products for the first time. At some point during 1986, they opted to release Rebel Planet first and they also opted to drop the development of Appointment with F.E.A.R. and Demons of the Deep, in favour of Sword of the Samurai[2] Pushing Rebel Planet forward to 1986 pushed Temple of Terror back into 1987.
