Temple of Terror was the sixth Fighting Fantasy computer game to be published and was the second to be advertised as being developed by AdventureSoft and distributed by U.S. Gold.


Temple of Terror was released in 1987 following the 1986 release of Rebel Planet. AdventureSoft had bought the licence to develop the game in 1985 and had originally intended to release it in December 1986 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 precede the release of Rebel Planet.[1]. However, after the bankruptcy of the American firm Adventure International, AdventureSoft began to use their own name 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, pushed Temple of Terror back into 1987.
