“Je zult helemaal terug naar 1993 moeten gaan om een spel te kunnen vinden dat zoveel plezier levert. Telltale, dit is hoe jullie het gedaan zouden moeten hebben toen jullie het adventure-genre opnieuw leven inbliezen. Pas op, jullie zijn niet meer alleen…”

“The Book of Unwritten Tales is een prima adventure game die elke fan van het genre zal waarderen.”
93/100 – Gamingillustrated

“In de afgelopen tien jaar hebben we nooit zo'n goed in elkaar gezette comedy/fantasy-adventure game gezien, tot de rand gevuld met grootse vertelling, zingeving en gevoelens van vreugde en wanhoop. Een absolute must voor iedere "avonturier".”
9.5/10 – GameOver

The Book of Unwritten Tales was the first game by the German development studio King Art to be released internationally, in 2012. It put this adventure games-developer firmly on the map, and has been praised for adding a unique feel to the classic point-and-click adventure genre.

For me it has been a long time since I last played a game like this. Actually, it was only since the adveture games by Telltale Games that I was redrawn into the genre, having played several of the classics many, many years ago (think 90's). While the Telltale concept of adventure games focuses on storytelling in combination with some action scenes, King Art completely stays within the boundaries of the classic adventure genre. Literally the only thing that needs to be done to complete this game, is pointing and clicking - the keyboard nor any other action is necessary, apart from pressing "spacebar" in order to see which objects are interactable with. While this may feel like a somewhat all too classic an approach for a game in the 2010's, it actually still works pretty well. Of course, just like any moint and click adventure game, The Book of Unwriten Tales has a lot of puzzles, but these don't feel like being tucked onto the game in order to provide a challenge or prolong playtime. The puzzles in this game form an organical part of it: they arise out of the situation, and most (if not all) of them can be solved by just thinking, not by gratuitously pointing and clicking all over the place (so it could as well be called a point and think game).

That a classic adventure game like this still works nowadays, is mainly due to the interesting storyline, which drew me into the game pretty quickly, helped by the amazingly original and beautiful artwork. The soundtrack too is top-notch and strikes the perfect balance between providing some background music and yet helps in painting each scene. Playing for a large part as the young gnome Wilbur Weathervane made me identify with this smart an witty character very soon, even more so since young Wilbur looks at life in a refreshing, sometimes naive way. Later in the game other characters come into play as well, providing some welcome contrasts, but it always felt like coming home whenever Wilbur was the one I was in charge of.

While all these qualities help to make a game of good to very good quality, the one element that differentiates The Book of Unwritten Tales from lots of other games, is the humour and even the irony with which the game looks at itself and at the entire world of games. Describing individual scenes from this game is difficult without resorting to spoilers, but when at a point quite early in the game I had to shut down a "server" for a "rpg machine" in order to rid two side-characters from their "game-addiction", I laughed out loud. The entire game is full of these sidekicks at the gaming industry, complete with wondrous quotes and one-liners. When a very depressed Death himself at a certain points says "This is an adventure game, nobody is supposed to actually die here", you know you're in for a treat.

Besides the poking at different games and genres, The Book of Unwritten Tales also makes fun or rather poses some questions about the entire fantasy-concept. It does so by obvious references to The Lord of the Rings, but also by turning some conventions from the fantasy-genre upside down or inside-out. All in all, this is a game into a lot of thinking has been put, without interfering with the actual fun of playing it. I can only recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone even remotedly interested in adventure games. And for all of you who have forgotten how a classic point-and-click game should look and play like, don't look any further. They don't come any better than this one for the time being.

Overall score: 8,5/10.

One of the best pont-&-click adventure's in my gaming history.
What's make this game of one best's - is that it's mirror most fantasy universe's (Lord Of The Rings, Avantasia, Warcraft and e.t.c.) and even Real Life in so sarcastic manner, so you can't just ignore it.

Puzzles and quest's grow in difficulty with every new chapter (but most's of them are not so difficult; I don't use "SPACE" to highlight all active object's untill chapter 4).

"Sam & Max" now have a really serious competitor ina face of thoose fellas.

Highly recommended for all who familiar with fantasy worlds (even a little) and have a deep lust of good laughing infront of monitor.

A very charming game. The difficulty is nothing to brag about but it more than makes up for it by its great storyline and the fantastic characters, especially the lovable gnome Vilbur. The game doesn't take itself too seriously which fits the entire game really well. It's a great game to relax to with a good sense of humor.

The puzzles are overall easy to figure out and most of the time it's not the lust for solving puzzles that keeps you going, but the urge to see and hear how the character react when they interact with objects and other characters and also to see where the crazy story takes you next.

I highly recommend this game. I'm currently replaying it after a few years and it still delivers!
Well worth the money.

Good point and click game, though not very challenging. The story is entertaining and spoofs fantasy/sci fi stereotypes from Tolken to Star Wars.The characters are endearing and laugh-out-loud funny. I would say this is a perfect starter point and click for kids but for some (very little, actually) "strong" language. The graphics are good with the details in the scenes finely rendered. The characters are detailed and well voiced (though the voice effect for one character grated on my nerves). If the puzzles were more of a challenge I would rate this as a must buy. As it is I'd say its a must buy on sale.
