Ian Fleming to debut in an upcoming adventure game


Ian Fleming, the author of James Bond novels, will be featured in a video game for the first time in a planned first-person adventure game John Carter Warlord of Mars.

The main character, John Carter, is an interplanetary warrior in a series of classic Burroughs novels, dating back to 1912. With the new game set to be available on PC and console platforms, it is bringing the historic sci fi fantasy to a contemporary audience.

Starting in 1945, the gameplay will centre on the soldier John Carter, working on a mission to find Hitler's secret projects operation. The orders for this mission come directly from Fleming, triggering the start of a sci-fi adventure where John Carter finds an experimental technology that eventually transports him to Mars.

Fleming will be brought to life as the commander of special WWII intelligence unit, known as T-Force, paying homage to his real-life exploits during the war.

Before penning James Bond novels, Fleming held a series of key intelligence positions in the war effort and was from a family of military personnel.

“We were intrigued when first approached with this idea and think it is a project fans of Ian Fleming will enjoy. I’m looking forward to seeing my great-uncle realised onscreen,” enthuses Ian Fleming Publications director and Ian Fleming Estate executive committee Diggory Laycock.

Fleming’s cameo comes at an opportune time as it was recently announced that John Carter Warlord of Mars is under development.

An exclusive licence covering Ian Fleming’s involvement has been granted to the game’s publisher, creative agency FNCPR.

“This game is a real melting pot of traditions and genres. As an adventure based on the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs, it was already shaping up to be a fusion of classic literature and cutting-edge gaming technology,” says FNCPR managing director Frazer Nash.

“However, by celebrating Ian Fleming’s intelligence work in the war – which inspired him when creating the tales of 007 – and weaving him into the story, we have taken the game to another level,” Nash says.

“Not only was he a legendary author, he was a genuine military man, accustomed to sending Britain’s bravest into extreme situations. That’s a quality that will certainly come to the fore in John Carter Warlord of Mars,” Nash concludes.

With initial work on the game underway, the next step in the process will be the launch of a crowdfunding initiative, which will fund the next stage of development.

Set to be released in May 2022, the all-action game is being published by FNCPR under a licence from Edgar Rice Burroughs, the company that manages and licenses the creative works of novelist Edgar Rice Burroughs, on which the game is based.
