Recensioni

“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".”

Nate: I'm from the Environment Office. You do know that you can't just go chucking your rubbish all over the landscape here? Open the gate, please. I need to check your garbage cans.
Orc Chieftain: Do you ever listen to yourself when you speak? How can anyone blabber such rubbish?
Nate: I don't know either. It's like I can ask different questions, but every time I select the most stupid one.

Funny dialogs even though it’s a bit childish sometimes, really good voice acting and beautiful animation... it lacks challenges but the story and humor compensates it!

As someone who’s not normally a fan of point-and-click adventure games I wasn’t particularly excited when I sat down to play The Book of Unwritten Tales - but I got it on sale so I thought “what the heck.” I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. While the game follows the general rules of point-and-click adventures - you go from room to room picking up various objects and figuring out how they interact with each other and the enviroment - what really sells the game is the humor.

I find that it’s really hard to make games funny, but The Book of Unwritten Tales succeeds. The key is that the game just doesn’t take itself overly seriously. and the writers feel free to poke fun at it, and wider gaming topics, at will. In addition, the game makes you the think, but none of the puzzles feel unfair. You just have to be willing to spend some time poking around a bit and trying out different things. The whole game only takes about twenty hours to complete.

There are certain points where I found particularly small items a little bit harder to find that I felt was fair - and the game doesn’t explain that you can right-click your items to find out more about them - but those are really my only complaints. The game might not be worth the full twenty bucks Steam is currently asking for, but it’s certainly worth picking up on sale!

Stellar game. It had me literally laughing out loud multiple times. The humor was right up my ally.

The puzzles were clear, and the prompts were helpful if you got stuck. I never felt a need to go to a walkthrough, and I never got stuck enough to get frustrated. I did, however heavily utilize the space bar (which reveals all the clickable points) which is a great feature for a game such as this.

The plot was really engaging and I was so thrilled to find that there was a part 2 once I finished it because I definitely wasn't done laughing with these characters.

10/10 Please hit me really hard in the face so I can play it for the first time again.

I don't normally write reviews for games that I play, however this game was so enjoyable that I decided it was worth the time to write a review so others who are thinking about purchasing this game can make a decision.

Normally I play a game for a few hours and go do something else and half the time end up forgetting to ever go back to the game because the plot isn't interesting enough to keep me playing. This is one of the few games that had me so hooked I ended up playing the entire thing in one sitting. The characters are lovable and the story is cute and entertaining. The dialog can be a little long at the beginning where you feel like there is not much going on other than speaking to everyone and everything. (which I personally didn't mind but my younger sister got bored in the first 3 minutes... because she wants everything now!) However, the dialog is amusing and has many little quips that are referring to some other movies, tv shows, ect that you will hear and maybe crack a smile because you will have that 'a hah! That's from *insert reference here*' The artwork is also very well done and is primarily cartoon like but not over the top.

The only bad things I can say about this game is that I wish it were longer! I hope this helps anyone who is considering playing this adorable game. :)

This is a fun and hilarious addition to many different genres of games. if you like rpg, strategy, puzzle and comedy games you will love this fun and quirky mix of all of them. this game is not difficult but some of the puzzles required a look up for references i was not familiar with. A long game that is well worth your time. (Sequel is just as good)

An enjoyable click and point puzzle game with lots of throwbacks to popular fantasy titles. The animation can be a bit aged especially if playing on higher resolutions but BoUT's is still a fun game!

My only (-) is that character movement can be a little slow, but feel free to grab a cup of tea and sip while waiting

The Book of Unwritten Tales is a classic Point & Click Adventure. It follows the paths of the gnome Wilbur, the human Nate, the elf Ivo and the Critter on their journey to save the world after the archaeologist Mortimer McGuffin finds a powerful artifact, that can decide the war between the Army of Shadows and the Alliance.
The story sounds very clichee, but that is wanted, because the Book of Unwritten Tales is just one big parody of everything that has to do with fantasy, science fiction or adventure movies and is filled with many references to them. Even the music sometimes sound suspiciously close to some of Hollywood´s classics.
The design of the game is very good for a Point & Click Adventure and fits the mood of the game very well. The 60 locations all have their own feel to them so that the game does not get boring. The Book of Unwritten Tales also did not fall for the trap, that many Point´n Clicks cannot avoid to step in. There are no annoying and unlogical puzzles. After some thinking everything makes sense, so that you do not have to randomly combine items without a certain goal. All in all the Book of Unwritten Tales was a really nice experience, that took me about thirteen hours to complete.

7 hours in and a mini game that cant be done unless you have good hand control. This game is old and had this problem from the start. You could send your save game in to get it solved but alas seems no more. How can they sell a game they know is broken, without a patch. Sadly ruined an otherwise excellant adventure.
11 hours in next chapter another known bug but alas once again you could send your save game in for a fix. Or as it stands now its game over there is no cure for this one. Maybe a patch here if your going to keep selling it.

I love this game. The puzzles aren't as crazily difficult like the Deponia series but are solvable by using simple intuition and the Spacebar. I enjoy solving the puzzles but they are more of a "If you can't do this, keep clicking on any other available spot"

PROS
1. Good Graphics
The 3D is a step up from the cartoonish drawings of the Deponia Series.

2. Interesting World
Transport Dragons, Mummies, Elves, Gnomes, Orcs, Mages and Death himself.

3. Good Title
Book of Unwritten Tales. Very catchy.

4. Weird Ideas
Using a Telephone Booth (aka Tardis concept) to teleport? Interesting.

CONS
1. Linearity
There is really only 1 way to solve a puzzle and your choices don't really matter at all. You are just solving one puzzle to get to the next.

2. Dead World
You can't interact with anything except what the developers want you to interact with. There is nothing that you can interact with for fun.

3. Colour Issues
When you make a potion, purple is not pink.

4. Number of Stirs
How do you count 3 stirs clockwise? Why is not stirring considered a foul?

5. Abrupt Ending
The ending was so easy and abrupt.

SUGGESTIONS
1. Removing the Linearity
I would suggest referring to the Witcher series for examples on how to use multiple ways to solve one issue. Or the Osbourne kids' books.

2. The Mighty Card Game
It would have been great to have a real Mighty card game within this game.

Un avventura grafica molto spassosa. I personaggi e la storia sono molto ben curati a differenza di altri giochi qui possiamo notare qualche collegamento con la realtà da battute nerd al carattere dei protagonisti. A volte i rompicapo non hanno senso ma una volta capito come funziona diventano si impegnativi ma abbastanza risolvibili.
8/10

Eccezionale. Adventure con grafica meravigliosa, storia accattivante, personaggi che ti prendono, humor azzeccato. Per esempio, il Critter sicuramente è destinato ad essere un'altra icona nel panorame videoludico, e forse, anche i vari Ivo e company. I richiami ad altre adventure cult arricchiscono l'atmosfera ironica del gioco. Il sonoro è buono. Una adventure che può benissimo essere a fianco delle blasonate del genere, di quelle che hanno fatto la storia delle adventure, come Monkey Island, senza paura di essere sacrileghi (ma che, forse la mania di aspirare ad essere pirati si sia propagata in giro? ). In più, anche se la versione steam non prevede la traduzione in italiano, è facile procurarsi in giro la patch della traduzione. Gli enigmi sono alla portata del giocatore medio. Da non perdere.

Consiglio vivamente questo gioco agli appassionati del genere. E' un adventure punta e clicca ben fatto. Non è molto difficile e nemmeno tanto lungo (ho il vizio di lasciare i giochi accesi in background, tenetene conto quanto vedete le mie ore), ma gli scenari sono tanti, e alcuni puzzle sono strutturati abbastanza bene. La facoltà di poter controllare 4 personaggi diversi aiuta molto la fluidità. La storia e semplice ma ben congeniata, l'umorismo è in ogni singola frase, la grafica molto lucas-arts-iana ed elegante da vedere. Inizialmente non mi aveva convinto per l'eccessiva facilità, poi il gioco si è fatto (LEGGERMENTE) più avvincente e la storia e i personaggi hanno cominciato ad appassionarmi. Poi i vari riferimenti a film, cinema, letteratura e soprattutto videogiochi dell'età dell'oro dell'adventure sono tantissimi, e ognuno regala un sorriso.
Ve lo consiglio vivamente, ma non aspettatevi un gioco su cui spremere le meningi, perché difficilmente succederà. Per quello c'è la triologia di Deponia. Qui la maggior parte dei personaggi cercherà di aiutarci, piuttosto che rappresentare un ostacolo. Spesso basta parlare con qualcuno per ottenere qualcosa e proseguire... difficilmente vedo adventure simili. The Book of Unwritten Tales è una parodia, va giocato a cuor leggero.
Corro a giocare all'espansione!

Ho completato questo videogioco in 23 ore, durante le quali mi sono appassionato alla trama puramente fantasy e ai personaggi. Non sempre intuitivo come può sembrare, anzi, in alcuni tratti ho dovuto muovere a caso sullo schermo il puntatore del mouse per trovare oggetti dei luoghi con i quali interagire e poter quindi continuare la storia. Unica pecca grave di questa versione del gioco su Steam, è la mancanza di una traduzione in italiano, tuttavia facilmente reperibile su internet. Voto finale: 7.5/10

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.

What the hell was I doing in 2012?

The Book of Unwritten Tales is an old-school fashioned point-and-click (P&C) adventure which essentially catches you off guard right from the beginning. As the story unfolds from a simple quest in finding and retrieving a secret powerful artefact before the forces of evil in the vein of The Lord of The Rings, its strong and well-written narrative creates this deep and intriguing light-hearted story that always makes you wonder what is going to happen just around the corner. Not only that, but as the story progresses in its artistically breathtaking environments, it genuinely gets better and better throughout its impressively 17+ hours long story. While admittedly it is not the most original story on the surface and some of the animations can break the immersion at times, its rock-solid narration easily makes up for them.

To my surprise, the game features some of the best memorable and likeable casts I have seen in a very long time, with plenty of exceptionally written witty humour which mocks (and pays tribute to) almost every single fantasy and video game trope out there, enough for a handful of genuine laugh-out-loud moments. Whether it is J.R.R. Tolkien’s novels or World of Warcraft, you name it -- the game most likely covers it somewhere. Imposingly, the cast also features excellent voice acting accompanied by a fitting soundtrack when, well, when it feels like playing a soundtrack.

What has kept this generation from embracing P&C nowadays could be partially blamed at the inconsistent difficulty-curve caused by illogical and lack of inspiring puzzles in similar games, but The Book of Unwritten Tales fixes almost all of that. The puzzles here are logical and generally easy to solve throughout the game since it encourages you to explore all the hotspots without the game holding your hand along the way. Apart from the second last chapter in particular, the puzzles here should be solved by literally anyone who is willing to explore every single detail out there, and this game has an abundance of small, yet rich, details in places. Plus, there are plenty of interesting (and humorous) dialogues and the hotspots are indeed descriptive. More importantly, there is a constant flow of momentum when solving the puzzles, something I have not seen in many games like this in years, and that is brilliant. There is never that fear of being punished and getting stuck for long periods of time for a poorly implemented puzzle. To my enjoyment, a few of the puzzles were rather genially designed thanks to a character-selection mechanic which allows the player to pick which character they want to perform certain tasks. While most of it comes down ultimately to a specific character being able to perform the certain task, it is a satisfying experience to see everyone working as a group to solve a puzzle, although I strongly feel like this is where the game missed an opportunity to expand on this mechanic.

Just when the game seems to hit the nail on the head in every single aspect of a classic P&C adventure game (and beyond?), it drops the ball really heavily just at the end in one of the most abrupt endings I have seen since Dreamfall, without any sense of climactic fulfilment. It is clear that the ending was left open for a sequel, yet it was poorly executed -- causing more questions than answers. The last five minutes, including the final cutscene, felt more like the developers ran out of time and had to release the game as soon as possible, with little time spent on writing a conclusive and plausible ending. It painfully feels like the story ends halfway through the chapter, subconsciously knowing there has to be more. It is rather sad because everything up to this point was meticulously and well executed. You would honestly be surprised by how such ending can instantly change you from an enthralling mood to a pokerface the moment you see the credits rolling. That was very, I repeat, vey underwhelming.

Conclusively, The Book of Unwritten Tales is the closest thing to a Monkey Island experience in my book. While it does not blatantly rely on nostalgia and references from past classics to suck you in, in fact, it does have its own charming personality. It basically takes almost everything that worked in the past and improves it, or more fittingly modernising the formula, while still keeping that old-school feel of the golden-era of LucasArts/Sierra games and at least trying to break the status quo set by those classics. I can easily say that this is one the best accomplished modern adventure games I have ever played in a very long time and can also say that it will stand the test of time as far as P&C games are concerned. It just falls slightly short from a masterpiece status thanks to its unjustified ending, but The Book of Unwritten Tales is a prime example of how P&C should be tackled for new and old audiences in times like these where military shooters and other saturated AAA-titles seem to take the spotlight in the media. There is more passion and product value in this than in many titles out there and I am glad I actually got to play this, eventually. What an unforgettable and delightful experience all around.

Like I said earlier, what the hell was I doing in 2012? I shall not repeat the same mistake in 2015 when the sequel will be released.
