Nordic Games announces The Book of Unwritten Tales 2!

11 února 2014

KING Art launches Kickstarter to push boundaries of the point and click genre

Vienna, AUSTRIA (February 11th 2013) – Nordic Games and KING Art have today announced a unique collaboration which will see The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 – the sequel to the much-loved 2011 adventure – released beginning of 2015.

Keen to push the boundaries of the niche point and click genre, KING Art has also launched a Kickstarter to raise funds to develop additional on-top content for the game.

“This is a very ambitious project”, says Martin Kreuch, Producer at Nordic Games. “The fans have been waiting for a new adventure in the world of Aventasia that continues the story of BoUT 1. We have a long and very fruitful track-record working with KING Art, which is why it is important to us to support them in any way that is needed. If KING Art wants to try out something new, why should we be hindering them in doing so? At first, it seemed strange to us thinking about an already funded game being on Kickstarter, but then we were amazed about the possibility to get direct feedback from the crowd about this additional on-top content and features.”

“We’re thrilled to be working alongside Nordic Games again on The Book of Unwritten Tales 2,” adds Jan Theysen, Creative Director, KING Art. “At a later stage of the development process – production start was in October 2012 –, we suggested to Nordic Games to add additional features (multiple ways to solve certain puzzles, optional sidequests with different outfits to customise the appearance of your character etc.) and more community communication to further improve the game. Based on our very positive experience with Kickstarter on a different project (Battle World: Kronos), we suggested involving the community directly via Kickstarter to see if these features are something that gamers would like to see in an adventure game. Every cent from the campaign goes directly into the on-top content and we are excited to see how the adventure community will react to our ambitious plans.”

Released in 2009, The Book of Unwritten Tales was highly acclaimed by press and critics alike. The sequel continues the story of the beloved protagonists of the first part and its add-on.

About The Book of Unwritten Tales 2
The story takes place one year after the events of The Book of Unwritten Tales. Our four playable characters, Wilbur the gnome mage, elven princess Ivo, adventurer Nate and his companion, the critter, all have their own problems to deal with. But then a new threat appears and the four work together to save the world of Aventasia once more.

Players will play each of our heroes individually but there are also times where two or even three characters are being played simultaneously, in order to solve some of the riddles & quests. The game features the city of Seastone and many new locations, like flying pirate cities, sunken desert-temples, the elven palace, the Seastone underground and many more.

“You'll have to go all the way back to 1993 until you can find a game that delivers this much fun. Telltale, this is how you should have done when you resurrected the adventure genre. Beware, you're not alone anymore…”
9/10 – Eurogamer Sweden

“The Book of Unwritten Tales is a top notch adventure game that any fan of the genre will appreciate.”
93/100 – Gamingillustrated

“Never in the past decade we've seen such a well-built comedy/ fantasy adventure game, filled to the brim with great narration, sense of purpose and feelings of joy and despair. An absolute must have for every "adventurer".”
9.5/10 – http://www.gameover.gr/pc/reviews/The-Book-of-Unwritten-Tales.18094.html

The Book of Unwritten Tales is a 3D point-and-click adventure game set in a fantasy world. The game consists of 5 fairly lengthy chapters, although the last chapter was very short compared to the others. The Steam page says the game has about 20 hours of gameplay, but it only took me about 11 hours.

The graphics are pre-rendered in 16:10 aspect ratio, which means that on other aspect ratios there will be black bars on the sides. I have a 16:9 monitor so there were a bit over 1 cm wide black bars on each side of the screen. Aside from that minor issue the graphics are good and the environment looks very detailed.

The story is good, although it's a pretty standard fantasy story. You must find a powerful artifact and not let the evil forces get it. The somewhat silly world and the charming characters make the story a lot better. For example there are 2 NPCs playing a fantasy RPG, in which they must fill tax forms and do other mundane real life tasks. The dialogue is also pretty funny and contains several nods to other games like the Monkey Island series.

I found the puzzles to be easy and simple. I never really had to look for any items as you could get almost all of them on the first time you entered that area. The interactable hotspots disappeared once you no longer needed them or if you had interacted with them for a couple of times. You also had to interact with everything once before you could pick it up, which I learned pretty quickly. That basically meant that all the hotspots remaining after going through them all would be used in a puzzle. The inventory system made everything even simpler as the game showed a text when you could combine two items.

The game is fully voice acted and I thought the voice acting was pretty good. The music wasn't that great, but it was often barely noticeable. There are subtitles available in the game, but they don't show during the few cutscenes the game has.

I thought the game was good and recommend playing it, if you like point-and-click games.

This is not just the better point-and-click game i ever played, but one of the better gaming experiences i had so far. Awesome games like Machinarium are far, far away from The Book of Unwritten Tales. And the story... It's just amazing! It gets better and better while progressing. The final chapter is just... you must see it for yourself!

Point-and-click adventurers, RPGs and fantasy worlds lovers must have it! It is full of really funny references of a lot of known worlds like World of Warcraft and Lord of the Rings. Those who are familiarized with this kind of games will just stagger at the screen and probably will find themselves smiling alone while playing.

I wanted to see it on a movie, and although i can replay it, i'll miss the delight and freshness of discover it for the rest of my life.

This is not just another point and click adventure game where good triumphs over evil. The creative and hilarious dialogue keeps yoentertained as you play. Don't mind the minor graphical glitches. The game contains references to MMO's and will get a chuckle out of you. You can finish this game in 10-12 hours.

La version française suivra après (car mise à jour)

As most of the reviews already says, this a great adventure game in the vein of old Lucasart's one. Quite good writing, the scenario is interesting and surprising, the music is nice but you wouldn't notice it most of the time and its main pro is the humor and references during all the game. Regarding the references, it's kind of "which one you have found, I could tell I old you are" as there are plenty from old to new games (adventure, MMORPG...), films etc.

Also, as you play, you will have to manage different characters which make the game more interesting. But the game itself is not very hard to go through. Most of the puzzle are quite logical, just to be careful to check if you have interact with all you can see in each area and talk to every actors of the game. A hint, if you couldn't go further, try to speak to everyone you can again.

All in all, it is a very nice game I really enjoy to play with and I recommend it to those you like adventure game. The one thing I missed (but finally not so much) is that there is no French option... but the English version is very well made.

Update: finally, there is a French version, well not the voice but at least the subtitles which is a good start ;o)

---------------------------

Version française :

Comme la plupart des commentaires en ont fait part, c'est un jeu d'aventure vraiment sympa dans la même veine que ceux de la grande époque Lucasart.
L'écriture est bonne, le scénario intéressant et surprenant même, la musique assez sympa même si vous ne la remarquerez pas une partie du temps, et sa principale qualité à ce jeu se trouve au niveau de l'humour et des nombreuses références que l'on peut y trouver. Au niveau de ces derniers cela va des jeux vidéo aussi bien anciens que nouveaux jeux (de type MMORPG, aventure...), films etc.

Aussi, sachez qu'un autre intérêt à ce jeu c'est lorsque vous jouer, vous allez diriger plusieurs personnages. Cela dit les casse-têtes ne sont pas très difficiles et assez logiques, il faut juste avoir bien vérifié chaque tableau pour voir si on a rien oublié et aussi ne pas hésiter à parler avec les différents personnages. Un petit truc, si vous êtes coincés, n'hésitez pas à retourner parler à tous les personnages qui vous entourent.

En conclusion, c'est vraiment un jeu auquel j'ai pris un grand plaisir à jouer et je le recommande chaudement à ceux qui aiment les jeux d'aventure. La seule petite chose qui me manquait (et encore) c'était la version française. Mais cela est maintenant du passé car il y a les sous-titres en français. Cependant la version anglaise n'est pas très difficile à suivre et peut être un bon exercice pour ceux qui désirent s'améliorer avec la langue de Shakespeare.
