Comment ai-je pu passer à côté de cette perle du jeu d'aventure ?

The Book of Unwritten Tales nous plonge dans un univers d'Heroïc Fantasy qui ne se prend pas aux sérieux. Blindé d'humour et de parodies de jeux de rôle, c'est un véritable régal. Le jeu nous permet d'incarner 3 héros : un petit gnome nommé Wilbur (mon préféré !), un aventurier un peu couard appelé Nate, et une elfe des bois Ivo. Ensemble, ils devront sauver le moooooooonde !!

Le jeu n'est pas très difficile mais pour autant, la durée de vie est impressionnante.J'ai mis 14 heures pour en venir à bout.

Les sous-titres FR sont corrects, l'humour est bien transcrit. Il y a juste quelques petites coquilles par ci par là mais sans gravité.

Vivement le 2 !

Très belle surprise que ce jeu d'aventure Point & Click qui prenait la poussière dans ma bibliothèque. Il m'a rappelé quelques bons moments passés sur Discworld ou Monkey Island.

Points forts
  • Histoire rondement menée qui donne lieu à des situations variées et cocasses.
  • Difficulté bien dosée ce qui fait que l'on prend plaisir à suivre cette histoire sans jamais être réellement bloqué.
  • Bourré de références en tout genre (film, jeux ... je vous laisse les découvrir)
  • Graphiquement de grande qualité.
  • Une durée tout à fait raisonnable (une 12ène d’heures).
Faiblesses
  • Quelques bugs de localisation notamment (textes en allemands) encore sont encore présents.
  • Des PNJs qui ont une propension à nous envoyer régulièrement leur chercher des objets.
Après les quelques soirées que j'ai pu passer dessus, je ne peux m'empêcher de le trouver légèrement meilleur que les productions de Daedalic et lui octroie un 8/10 mérité tant il possède de qualités.

I really enjoyed playing the game. It has clever story and dialogues. I laughed a lot.
The four protagonists are adorerable. But not only them. I thrilled with the idea of inverse worlds(you are in a world where you can meet gnomes, dwarves, dragons etc and humans play a game which takes place in real world ).
The riddles were not so difficult. The answers are mostly obvious (you do not have to guess what the creator want me to do). If you have what you need in your inventory then the answer is clear.
I strongly recommend it.

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.

If you're a fan of the Point-And-Click adventure genre, Or even if you're not this game might be for you! The setting and game is chock full of humor. The fantasy genre, MMOs, Fiction and all manner of things get deliciously skewered in the story. Unlike other such games however, This game reards the observant. All the puzzles and interactions aren't too hard to figure out for the most part, But looking at things around you or in your inventory or talking to a person near you always reveals even a subtle hint as to what to do next, And if truly stuck one can hold SPACE at any time to see what interactive spots are near you at any time. For an indie offring, This is a game both beautiful and functional. At the very least, IT will provide a fun story!

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.

Pretty and polished game, but too short and the humour is too childish for me. There are some references for the mature public too, but it just sounded odd to me due to the rest of the atmosphere. The characters move very slowly too, and that can be annoying sometimes. The voice acting is great though.

The game is either far too easy, or just makes no sense:
To distract a monkey, I rarely think "Eureka, all I need is a jar and a bunch of bettles!"
Luckly you don't have too many possibilities to try on, so this is not a showstopper. Objects are pretty much always right there on the screen, and not hidden in a shady corner, which is a plus. The spacebar (that highlights clickable objects on the screen) is rarely (or never) needed.

The graphics are quite good, and I've encountered a few glitches (Linux here) but they went away by themselves, so it didn't bother me too much.

If you REALLY want this game, I'd recommend waiting for a sale. Its not all that fantastic.


IMPORTANT: If you don't find this review useful, I'd be happy if you comment below why you think so. Just going "Oh I like the game and I want this review to fall into the oblivion" is quite of a immature behaviour. Thank you.

PS: There are some references to MMO RPGs in this game that got me a little bit uncomfortable, as I am a big fan of the genre. Devs seem to imply that they are repetitive, meaningless, and alienating, the main character commenting "...that's the silliest game I've ever heard of". The critiques go on in the trailer of the sequel of this game too. I don't know if they wanted to criticise a specific MMO or the whole genre, but the later sounds like an utterly equivocated idea. Not cool.

So! You are a fan of point and click adventure games, but long gone are the days of Guybrush Threepwood, Roger Wilco, and purple tentacles. So, naturally, you've left games like that to the past, and whenever anyone tries to make a new one, it's all focused on graphics, never on story, never on humor, and certainly never the old 'combine these things to make this new thing to solve this puzzle'.

Well, I can say that if that is what you are looking for, The Book of Unwritten Tales is for you. The humor is a good blend of clever, self-aware, and just plain groan-worthy. The puzzles are not too simple and not too complicated. Well...ok, maybe a BIT too simple. Most of them were actually pretty basic, though a few stood out as clever.

My only complaints about this addition to the genre were fairly minor. One of the more classic moments in these types of games was in The Secret of Monkey Island where there was a whole string of events that happens outside of your control and everything occurs off screen with you just sitting there reading the text and listening to the sound effects. A direct homage to that happens in this game, but then a couple more times things similar to it happen....once was funny and a nice tribute, but multiple times sort of makes it feel like lazy writing or a way to advance the story when there's no logical way to tie two events together.

The other issue I had with this was one of...I don't know...dialogue trees? Programming? I am unsure what it would fall under but on multiple occaisons I would find an item and go 'Oh...I wonder if person X would like this items...' and so I go to check and they respond with 'Oh, hey, thanks for getting me that thing I asked for, here is the item I promised in return.' Except that none of that dialogue happened. It skips it entirely. It's not really a PROBLEM, but it certainly breaks the scene a bit and makes you kind of annoyed that you missed what might have been some funny moments.

Those gripes are minor, however, and I recommend this game a lot, even if you've never really played point and click adventures before as there isn't quite as many gaps in logic as you find in many others.

P.S. My favorite character was the dragon.

The Book Of Unwritten Tales is a very nice and fun adventure to play! The story is about the classic fantasy cliche about an ancient and powerful artifact, and the mission to recover it and save the world. You'll guide 4 main characters, sometimes together, sometimes alone.
The puzzles, all mainly based around collected objects, are not difficult at all, and the ending is a bit rushed out, but all the rest represents a great tribute to classic adventure games of the past, from Monkey Island to Legend of Kyrandia, from Day of the Tentacle to King's Quest.

Graphics and art are really beautiful, locations come to life and are very well characterized. There's a subtle but well played soundtrack and voice recording just nailed perfectly each character. Humor comes out from every single line of text, there are also a lot of fun quotes from mainstream games and movies, like The Lord of The Rings and Mission Impossible.

It's thanks to small but passionate developers like King Art, but I also think to Daedalic and Wadjet Eye, that we're still able to play adventure games like this one nowadays. Playing TBoUT was like returning back to mid '90s, and I surely hope to see more adventure developers to take the risk and the challenge to reinvent and innovate the genre, keeping the good from the past.

In the meantime, I'm looking forward to try this game's prequel, The Critter Chronicles, but even more its true sequel, the just released second chapter, which from what I read is going to be even more good!

What do you get when a point and click adventure game is fully aware that it is a point and click adventure game? You get this nifty game, where the right combination of self-referential humor, 4th wall breaking, and beautiful set design manifested in a thoroughly pleasant game.
I had no idea I have had this game in my steam library, and I have no idea what it is, or how it become one of the 600+ titles. But if I obviously paid money at one point to get it, and that was perhaps the best financial decision i've made this year(this being a particularly bankrupt year in terms of positive monetary decisions for me, but I digress).

The Logic:
First of all, when you play an PaC Adventure game, you have to have a very eccentric sense of logic. You can't just simply find a ladder to get a cat down a tree, but you have to cobble together a solution that involves a rubber mouse that you find on the surface of uranus, a piece of string woven from the nosehair of a troll you put asleep with the duck's tears potion from the dungeons, and finally a makeshift fishing rod from a wand you found while rummaging through a witches knicker drawer. This game is fully aware of that, and in its awareness, makes the logic to be a perfect balance of adventure game logic and simple item association. Sure I got stuck a few times, but It was mostly due to me missing an key item among the clutter of the scenery. Of course, this is partially due to a particular gameplay flaw that I will touch on later.

Gameplay:
PaC games are generally very easy. You hover your mouse cursor over everything in the scene, until it changes into either a grabby cursor or a magnifying glass, and you keep doing so until you have found every item and every interactables in the scene. The items are in an inventory in the bottom row, and you start mashing them together until you get what you need to solve the puzzle at hand. This method of brute force have served me well for many logically redundant PaC games, and I have applied this method a few times in this game as well... that is, until I discovered the SPACE BAR! The space bar button highlights every item and every interactables in the scene. Such a batvision upgrade seems to made the game easier, and would of course benefit many times where I had mouse scanned everything in a scene for a missing item. Such an control input would serve well to be explained in game at the beginning, instead of being accidentally discovered 2/3 through my playthrough. But overall, I found that the game seems to composite all the important elements in obvious places, and the UI is pretty intuitive for all the interaction of a PaC game.

Artwork and Animation and Sound:
I put these category together because… Well mostly because I’m lazy, but also the combination of all 3 together creates immersion for the game, and this immersion stool will immediately topple if one of the three legs is taken out.
I've have my hand hovered over the screenshot hotkey for majority of the game. The scenery are beautifully rendered, the characters are very well characterized, and most of the dialog match with the animations. A few sound seems to be out of sync with the animation, but the dialog are so expertly written and enacted that I’ve been willing to let a few negs go. Animation seems to be the weakest leg of the stool, many animations seems slow and unresponsive, especially when you have to repeat an action multiple times, it seems almost unbearably mechanic. These are times when I teeter precariously on this stool of immersion, but the rest of the gameplay is engaging and the dialogs are humors enough to compensate for my sore bum.

Conclusion:
I was really tempted to end this review on the word “bum”, but I have to be considerate of all those who skipped ahead of my long-winded rants to ask:
SHOULD I BUY THIS GAME?

HELL YES.

Despite an impressive production and jokes that actually put a smile on my face, most of the game dragged on due to slow unskippable walking. 90% of playing time is spent watching your character walk. That and countless tedious "3 tasks" quests around a shallow story almost made me quit, and I played on out of stubbornness, already decided on a negative review. Fortunately, the game picked up quite a bit in the last chapter, and I'm left with slightly more reasons to recommend it than not, so a close-call thumbs-up here.

Pros:
- Great art, great music, great dialogue writing, great voice acting.
- The jokes and references are really well done.
- Last 20% is better than the rest.

Cons:
- Character movement is painfully slow! Any walking sequence becomes an unskippable maddening slow drag.
- Not too much of a story.
- Too many tedious "complete 3 tasks" puzzle quests.
- Too many linear dependencies where the solution is to try something again that wasn't working before.
- No way to pause the many long cutscenes and conversation sequences. Really sucks if you're interrupted.

I bought this game because the videos where just so funny! It was a lot of fun playing it, but i didn´t expect the effect this game had on my girlfriend. She doesn´t like computer games but when she saw me playing it she took over! Now i had to buy all the other adventures from nordic games and she finished them in record time! So dear male gamers, DON`T let a girl see this game - they will banish you from your own computer and take over!

A point and click puzzle adventure where the adventurer never dies. Totally low stress game but sometimes aggravating when you are trying to search for things to click and can't find them - I didn't find out until late game that space bar reveals to you potential areas to click. Would have saved some time and frustration in early game. Lots of punny, funny stuff in here for the true fantasy/scifi/gaming nerd. Lots of good easter eggs and the game kind of mocks itself (and sometimes the player) as it goes. Overall great for the casual gamer or for a game to pass time without too much investment.

IT - IS - A - CHAIR. Honest!
Okay, whatever. It's a horse.

This game is simple, yet elegant. Interesting story, logical and working puzzles, fantastic humour with tons of good references. The artwork is clean and nice, so you don't get lost in the détails.
For me, it is a 90+ (on a scale of 100) masterpiece. If you like adventure games, this is a must to play it game. If you don't like adventure games, try this, there's a good chance you'll like them after The Book of Unwritten Tales.

Solid Point and Click Adventure Game. Voice acting was superb and the scripting was spot on.
Loved 4th wall references, the story & dialog.
Great game! Only downside would be how the game 'quickly' wrapped up near the end. Almost didn't make any sense.
9.5/10.
Highly recommended! I look forward to the sequel.

Very Good game..

Very easy for me.

Good Story. To be right a normal fairy tale.

Really fascinating game with modern graphics and design. Sounds good.

Negative part only the videos as much LOST HORIZON. For modern games I thought that HD video is a MUST. But here we have very bad video quality anyway.

I've just finished the game and I must say that I enjoyed it very much. The dialogues were wonderful, many references to different things here and there, and lots of nice humour made this a great experience. The music was wonderful as well, however it did not have many trecks I think.

It's a great game to play after a good day of work when you want to kick back and play a nice story
