The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 Early Access version now available!

Dear adventure fans, dear The Book of Unwritten Tales community,

It is such a pleasure to let you know that The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is finally available on Steam as Early Access version.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/279940/

Here is an extended gameplay presentation video which will show you a lots of information on the franchise and The Book of Unwritten Tales 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNA4Wbkd_uI

As it is an Early Access version, it is even more important as usual to collect your feedback, issues, thoughts etc.
For discussion and general feedback, please use this thread: http://steamcommunity.com/app/279940/discussions/0/616187203927495737/

For technical issues and bugs, please use this thread: http://steamcommunity.com/app/279940/discussions/0/616187203927561896/

And here are the Early Access FAQs on The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 which you can also find on the product page:

Why Early Access?
“To get feedback from the community and allow the fans of the first game to play the sequel as early as possible. We want to involve the fans of the series, as well as all new fans, to help us give the game that little bit of extra-polishing. We look forward to the feedback from the players in the Steam forum.”

How long will this game be in Early Access?
“From September 4th, 2014 until the end of January 2015, with a time gap of approximately one month between each chapter.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
“During the Early Access phase we will release four of the five chapters of the game, leading up to the full release of the complete game end of January 2015. The final version will be polished according to the feedback of the community, in terms of difficulty balance of the puzzles, controller-controls, as well as general polishing of animations, sounds and graphics.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?
“Currently the first chapter is playable on PC, Mac and Linux, per mouse or controller.
Over the coming months the other chapters will be released.
Some of the extra content that was made possible through our backers on Kickstarter is not in the game yet and will be implemented via updates over time.
Though the game has already been thoroughly tested on several systems, there might still be certain compatibility or performance issues on specific configurations.
The controller-controls are still being polished, as we want to integrate the feedback of the fans here.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
“We plan to have a higher price starting with the final release than now during the Early Access phase.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?
“We started involving the fans of the series early this year with a Kickstarter campaign and after this very positive experience we want to continue the dialogue between the fans and us and get their feedback about the game in general, particularly the difficulty of puzzles and mini-games, and about the controller-based controls.”

Ein wirklich wunderschönes, detailverliebtes und spaßiges Spiel. Und zudem ein Feuerwerk an Gags, Anspielungen und Persiflagen. Bei dem Spiel hatte ich sogar noch (um einiges) mehr zu lachen als bei Monkey Island. Schwierigkeit ist auch ziemlich ausgewogen.
Das Spiel kann ich definitiv empfehlen.

Es ist ewig her, seit ich ein Spiel gezockt habe, bei dem ich so grinsen musste wie hier...
An jeder Ecke wartete eine andere Überraschung in Form einer Parodie oder direktem Fan Service bekannter Filme und Spiele aus dem Bereich von Science Fiction bis Fantasy...
Einige Rätsel sind zwar ganz schön schwer und nicht sofort zu knacken bzw. zu verstehen, aber das hat meinem Tatendrang nicht abgeschwächt...

(ACHTUNG SPOILER !!!)
Mein persönliches Highlight war die Szene mit dem Rollenspielautomaten für "WoB", wo wir unteranderem den "Server" lahm legen müssen, indem wir die Verbindung kappen, Bugs einschleusen oder einen riesen LAG verursachen
... selten so gefeiert XD ...

Ich persönlich empfehle jedem, der Point & Click Adventure mag und dabei auch noch wahnsinnig auf Parodien von bekannten Werken steht, sich dieses Spiel zu leisten...
zumal es die Vorgeschichte zum aktuell in der Entwicklung befindenden 2. Teils ist... und viele Sachen im zweiten Teil erwähnt werden, hier geschehen...

Und habe ich schon den sehr schönen Soundtrack erwähnt ? ;)

Wie kann es sein, dass ein so wunderbares Spiel so hässliche Bugs haben kann und jegliche Spielfreude den Bach runter geht?! Wo ist der Support, den man von den Entwicklern erwarten würde? Ich finde es unfassbar, dass nach zwei Jahren immer noch solche Fehler im Game existieren und die Entwickler sich einen Dreck darum scheren, da die dummen Kunden ja sowieso immer wieder zurückkommen...

I hate adventures!
--- end of review ---

Ok, not really. I would love to love them is a better term. But they are so boring.
Riddles because someone thought of them. Not because they make sense in the story.
Characters which are too cool or smart to be true.
Simply said, adventures are not fun.

I know of three exceptions currently:
  1. Blade Runner - 1997 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blade_Runner_%281997_video_game%29
  2. Culpa Innata - 2007 - http://store.steampowered.com/app/12310/
  3. The Book of Unwritten Tales - 2009

I played through "The Book of Unwritten Tales" in two days, ca. 16 hours (Blade Runner took me 32 hours non stop), and it was fun.
Really fun.
Sitting in front of your computer and laughing loud out, I don't do that very often.
I like the characters, I like the music, I like the voices very much (dragon anyone?) and I REALLY like the riddles.

Sometimes I searched for answers in the internet, but somehow I failed to find all but the first riddle. And even that was totally logically, I should have thought a bit longer about it.
That is the funny thing here. You don't have to try to combine every item with every other item.
Most of the time, you already have an idea what could/should work and just work in that direction.
Only sometimes you look at what you have, then you look at the problem, then you say: NO, and try it.

The game tells a story, the riddles are not riddles but there are problems in the game and you solve the problems. I hope you get my point? It is less "oh my god, again a riddle" and more of "yes, of course do I need to do that somehow, how"?

The game is just great.

Pros: The art is not pixel graphics! Beautiful soundtrack, excellent voice acting, descriptive narration for the world and its items/inhabitants. The story has a complete ending.

Cons: The animation of the 3D models seems a bit clunky and rigid. I experienced a bug where the game slows downs tremendously when accessing the inventory. No Steam achievements.

Summary: When I see a game from "The Adventure Company," I roll my eyes and expect drivel. This game was actually quite fun, so I definitely recommend it to fans of the point & click adventure genre.

Nice point-and-click adventure. Won't blow your mind but it's a charming little game. Lots of beautiful, painterly artwork, and the voice acting does a good job of bringing the characters to life. It's not without its flaws, though. It can be a bit too much of a hidden-object puzzler at times, so get used to sweeping the mouse over the screen looking for that 25-pixel hotspot you missed the first 4 times through the room. And it's not nearly as funny as it thinks it is... lots of clumsy breaking of the 4th wall that just fall flat. Still decent in balance, though!

Magnificent.
I have been playing adeventure games since graphics were something you imagined from text descriptions and this is without doubt one of the best, at least the equal of the best seirra ever made in story and gameplay and with graphics .... we could not even have imagined back then, and a real sense of humour with great little pop culture easter eggs and references that really add to the epic feeling of the plot.
Whats more - it has those rarest of things - puzzles that actually are entirely logical, i only cheated a couple of times in 20 hours of gameplay and it was always something i had looked for and missed. (my only criticism - it could have been clearer on the controls - I spent half the game wishing space showed hotspots before figuring out it did lmao - if i had realised i would have taken less time and not needed help lol). Thats not to say they the puzles are easy - I have great grades in university engineering, math and physics and found them a challenge. But they all make sense, unlike too many adventures today.
If adventure puzzle games are 'your thing' then this is a must play.

Best adventure game I've ever played, really. If you ever have been put off by some obscure adventure game in the past and decided to avoid the genre all together, give this a try. I think you will change your mind.

What's so awesome about this game?

The script and writing are simpy terrific! Fantastic sense of humour, hilarious ideas and really nice 4th wall breaking. I've lost count how many times I laughed and chuckled. Yes, the story involves you saving the world again, but there are couple twists along the way and it's not easy to predict what will happen next (especially taking into account adventure game logic ;). Characters are likeable and have strong personality. Their adventures usually involve finding themselves in absurd situations, facing ridiculous obstacles and solving problems in most unusual way. So adventure gaming in its best classic comedic edition.

During the course of the game you control different characters and there are times when you can switch between them on demand. The puzzles are fun and with subtle hints from conversations and item descriptions you always know what you need to do. You find and combine some items, execute actions in right order or say right things to right people. One of the highlights is preparing a magic potion, where you need to follow closely a recipe and add ingredients in correct amount, order and at right moment. There were times I missed an object (I only found out later that you can press 'space' to see all interactive objects on the screen) and walked around a bit, but in the end I found a solution by myself.

Voice acting is top-notch. I went through every possible dialogue option and clicked on every item to hear every single sentence. As is expected from adventure games, the game is pretty to look at. It's 3d graphics with locked camera, but it does have handdrawn vibe and charm.

It all comes together perfectly. Great game. I'm glad they are doing the sequel.

This is a pretty great point-and-click adventure game. It's rather long, the puzzles are for the most part reasonably straightforward (I didn't do too much random-clicking-to-see-what-happens), and the humor is often extremely well-done. The voice acting is also top-notch, which is a nice feature.

There's a few annoying technical issues if you're on Linux. For one, the "Settings" menu crashes the game unless you manually swap out one of the game's bundled libraries. For another, I couldn't find a way to set a windowed mode, or consistently set a windowed resolution, without hex-editing the main binary. (Editing the generated config files in ~/.bout achieved nothing for me.)

Additionally, anyone who's concerned about the representation of women in video games nowadays will find plenty to complain about in this title.

Still, the good parts far outweigh the bad, and IMO the world could use more adventure games of this caliber. I'd certainly recommend it to any fan of the genre!

Just completed the game...its 3.30 in the morning...couldn't stop playing...lots of fun. Well thought out puzzles, a little difficult in places but not overly so. Well designed story, interesting characters. With a good splice of humour and cultural references galore. It felt like a labour of love from people who love adventure games. Which is kinda what i want from a these sorts of games. To top it off though, it plays nicely, looks good and has some amusing voice acting.

My grumbles though come in the form of the animation cycles. You can get stuck in them and have to wait for it to finish and when you switch between chars you have to wait for the character you were using to move into their waiting spot before you gain control of the next one. but this problem was few and far between. I experienced one game breaking bug, which basically happened when i tried to put wilbur and nate into the same doorway. they both kinda locked up. Other then that, no issues.

The "Book of unwritten tales" is a 3D point and click game where you're following some interesting characters. The game itself is beautifully designed since it's from 2012, but the only things I have to say about the design is that some objects can disappear for a few seconds and come back again and some of the items you need to find can be hard to see because of all the colours although I played the game in high resolution. Beside of that I think that the game is well thought out with funny characters, funny quests, a good history, and an extremely funny ending.
Keep doing what you are doing KING Art!

One of the best games I have ever played. For me this game has become a cult game and it is a must-have if you like adventure games.
The plot is brilliant, the characters are amazing and the puzzles are cool, not difficult but very creative in my opinion.

I am a pretty big fan of Point & Click Adventures so of course I would happily play this.

The game starts out with a Gremlin called McGuffin (Not just a name) being captured by an evil army as he has knowledge of a magical artefact that can end an on-going war. He manages to give a ring to Wilbur, a Gnome who wishes for a greater purpose in life, between being freed and immediately recaptured by a dragon. Cue the adventures of Wilbur the Gnome and Ivo the Wood Elf as they attempt to save the land from the Arch-Witch Mortroga.

This game is OK. From the beginning it has a clear idea of what it wants to do which is poke fun at multiple fantasy tropes with World of Warcraft seeming to be made the most fun of (Wilbur's first area looks incredibly like Dun Moragh for example) but still tries to keep up with its story. Later it seems to get rather cofused and some parts and character descisions make little sense such as Nate (a selfish scoundral interested in his own wealth) suddenly decides to want to save the land instead of ensuring his own safety and wealth. It is a rather odd character descision that comes out of nowhere much like other certain plot devices.

The worst part is pretty much the end. Which decides to solve the worlds troubles with a convuluted plot and then ends rather abruptly with no real explanation of what just happened.

It's not a bad game. The story does get rather sporadic and non-sensical towards the end although it may just be that the game feels more compelled to tell jokes rather than a story. Try if you want, Don't expect anything spectacular though.

Poor Linux support.


There are several well-documented, crash-to-desktop bugs in the Linux version of this game, which the developer refuses to address. They have been known about for over a year. Some of the other negative reviews also address the poor Windows support, which I can't somment on. Now that the developers have moved onto TBoUT 2, it's unlikely they will ever fix those game-stopping bugs. Shame, really.

NO. I was not convinced. Beautiful graphics, good voices, nice puzzles, VERY funny dialogs and situations... most of all I loved the non-conformist NPCs, very cooool shaman, pink paladin, anxious dragon, loving zombies, etc. Well that was right !
But where is the story ? Was it so expensive to write a complete scenario, instead of theese shortcuts ?

OK, you play some time, you take pleasure to solve the tricks... after a while, you feel the end is near and you hope for more, for a hard final, for a last tricky enigma in order to show to demons who's the boss here. Aaaaaannd ...
Nope, it's already done, here are the credits, thanks for playin', good bye.
What a pitiful end of game ! No, no, no... I ended that one, but won't start a new game before at least... well, plenty of time.

Bought it with a 90% off coupon for a total of $2. Haven't yet decided if that was a waste of money.

The game is rather bland. Graphics quality is low-to-average for an indie studio. Voice acting is average for an indie studio. Story was cliche and unimaginative, but I believe that was the point. I was also not at all challenged by the game with the exception of two or three points where I decided to look at a walkthrough because I felt I had clicked on everything possible and I didn't want to expend any more mental effort trying to progress myself.

The pacing is quite slow and I thanked the Gods that the developer was good enough to allow double-clicking on doors to quick travel, but I really would have loved a hold-shift-to-fast-walk option... A couple hours in and the slow swagger animations were really quite old. Between frequent afks and the slow crawl, I'm sure I could have shaved a few hours off of the time to completion.

Bottom line though: was I entertained? Just barely. Was it $2 worth of entertainment? I'll grudgingly say "Yes". Can I recommend the game, however? No. It's simply too tedious.
