In 1985 AdventureSoft signed deals with Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone that gave it access to the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks. Mike Woodroffe and Brian Howarth went about developing Seas of Blood which would be the first game. It was published using the new "Fighting Fantasy Software" brand to be distributed by "Adventure International (UK)", the name AdventureSoft were using under licence from Adventure International in Europe until 1986. An advert in the December 1985 issue of Warlock (Issue 7) that was also carried in the next issue, was for the game Seas of Blood. It also carried provisional release dates for four other games that would be made for "Fighting Fantasy Software" and distributed by Adventure International (UK)". The four games were:
- Temple of Terror (for a December 1986 release)
- Rebel Planet (for a February 1987 release)
- Appointment with F.E.A.R.
- Demons of the Deep
Only Rebel Planet and Temple of Terror were later released, although not under the "Fighting Fantasy Software" brand but instead were developed explicitly by AdventureSoft (who had previously been using "Adventure International (UK)" under licence), and were distributed by U.S. Gold.
