7 hours in and a mini game that cant be done unless you have good hand cotrol. 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.

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.

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?

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.

I've had this game on my wishlist for a while until it went on sale and was not disappointed. Very engaging story and great characters. I loved the concept of being able to switch between them, though at times the process of switching was tedious (waiting for the character to get to the exact position the game requires just to trade an item real quick). There were a few issues with subtitles mismatching and lines going through the screen where action would later take place, but they weren't distracting. There was also one or two times where I could click on something from a previous screen, which was... interesting. Again, that didn't distract from the story and just made me chuckle and move on. There are some fantastic references that had me laughing and looking for others.

I only remember being frustrated with a puzzle twice, and both of them were simply because the solution was too specific and illogical (they may be references?). They didn't completely ruin the game, but they were the times where I had to consult a walkthrough which I do not like doing, but they frustrated me too much to find the real solution. Specifically When trying to get red paint - there is red powder that obviously needs to get wet: I came across 2 sources of water, the paladins spit and a giant tub of water in the caves, and neither worked, I needed the tiny puddle of tears that I completely missed in the crypt. Also, needed a gold coin for the phone booth teleporter. Ran up to grab some from the giant piles by the throne room, but nope, I need to get into that specific locked chest - actually didn't need a walkthrough for this one - it just seemed like a silly solution . In the grand scheme of the game, these are nothing, and like I said, may be references that I don't know/remember. All the other puzzles were well balanced.

I recommend it. I had a great fun time with this game. So many puns, jokes and references to everything! If you like point & click adventure games, and you want to smile while playing, this is your game!
On a sidenote: Changing characters can get a little frustrating sometimes, but it doesn't really intefere with the gameplay.

Great point-and-click adventure game loaded with ludicrous tongue-in-cheek humour. The puzzles are challenging (maybe a little too challenging?)… so much so that I have no idea how someone could make it through the full game without taking a peek or two at a walkthrough (I sure did!). On one particular puzzle, the characters even looked over at the ‘camera’ and wondered out loud if they were being guided by a higher power (or a walkthrough). I’m not a big fan of the ‘fetch-quests’, but there was still enough variety to keep me going. I bought this one on sale in a bundle ($1.99) as a way to test out the waters before buying the Book of Unwritten Tales 2. The retail price is quite high for this type of game, but there’s easily 15-hrs of gameplay (20 if you resist the temptation to look up puzzle solutions). Gamplay:Dollar ratio is quite high. I put in a solid 5 hrs to get a good feel for it, and I think I’ll add the 2nd to my watchlist for any upcoming sales.

Pros:
- a lot of fun
- beautifull graphics
- very good voice acting and soundtrack
- a lot of content
- "realistic" riddles that are neither so hard they would make you stuck for a long time nor are they stupid
- gameplay is ok
- flawless run on Linux (CentOS 7)

Cons:
- while solving a riddle, characters sometimes said something inappropriate that made me think there was a bug even though there wasn't any
- the idea of the main story isn't really original (however, I still haven't finished the game so I might be wrong about this) but perhaps the cliché is intentional
- really ugly almost naked Elf - what the ... ?!

Review (if you can call it that):

This game delivers so much intelligent fun so often that I laugh almost all the time I play it. It references many IT and game related stuff (movies, too) and makes a great fun of it (I really love the part with hairy server deamon).

The graphics are beautifull, the voice acting is superb as is the soundtrack.

Riddles are real riddles (not Skyrim-like would-be-riddles for everyone with IQ >= 80) but they're not so difficult that they yould make you stuck for too long. Also, every part of every riddle is only possible to solve once you have enough information to make that solution logical and reasonable. So you won't get anywhere by trying to just blindly put stuff together. You must gather data first or your character will only say something like "Why would I want to do that?" even though it might be the right solution.

And even though the main plot itself isn't really original in any way, there is a lot of content around it.

I also appreciate that devs took the effort and also made this game available for Linux users. And well enough, too. The single problem is that the first time the game starts, it doesn't get your desktop resolution but loads some weird default instead. If you want to change it, you must restart the game, but when you quit the game, the desktop resolution is that of the game. So you also have to restart you GUI. But that's just one-time problem and can be easilly solved.

Recommended.

This game is a point-and-click style fantasy adventure that's basically a parody of the fantasy genre as a whole. It's filled with pop culture references to famous fantasy and scifi fiction and tropes. The story is great. My only complaint is that one of the minigames requires very good timing. I had to find a savegame from right after someone beat the minigame in order to continue, but that was really the only problem I had.

At the time of writing this game is £17.99 full price. However I bought it on sale.
I do not recommend this game at full price.

It took me 12 hours to complete, using a walkthrough for one point. I found it a solid point and click adventure with a fun story, faintly amusing jokes and hat tips to other games/stories, and a mix of easy and difficult puzzles. The puzzles ranged from collecting things from different locations to figuring out how to sneak past things. There were no hidden object scenes and logic puzzles were very minimal.

However, there are some hefty flaws.
* As others have said, the characters move VERY slowly, so a lot of your time can just be sat watching them walk across the scene.
* The puzzles are frequently in the form of "go to this place and get this thing then return to a previous place to get another thing and put them together, now go to a different place and give the thing to someone who will give you another thing and then..." which was wearing. I would have liked to see a wider mix, and as a seasoned point and clicker I was disappointed.
* The ending baffled me with some odd time travel.

A fantastic, beautiful, lengthy, sometimes smart, even original (despite bursting with references to just about everything relevant within and outside the genre) modern point&click, that even manages to be funny here and there.

Sure, the movements are too slow and some animations are slightly strange/off, along with a meh-inducing puzzle or two, but this was a joy to play and a modern classic within the genre.

These games get nowhere near the attention they deserve. This game, The Critter Chronicles and Unwritten Tales 2 are some of the best adventure games released in years. The production quality is enormous; the art, the animation, the voices and the soundtrack are top notch and the script and the characters are hilarious. The puzzles range from easy to tricky, but usually only if you're unaware of a reference the game is making towards another game or film. If you're a fan of silly adventure games then I cannot recommend this enough.

14 solid hours of fantasy adventure goodness. A few polish issues here and there (subtitle errors, animation clipping) but nothing too distracting.
Not that this is a game has to worry about immersion anyway. Book of Unwritten Tales knows full well that it's an adventure game and loves to poke the player and itself for laughs.

Highlight: Buried Death alive and he quite enjoyed it.

Summary: a fantastic story hindered considerably by sub-par controls.

There are already over a thousand reviews, mostly positive, so i'll just recap a few points (some of which are specific to Linux):

- notable video resolution detection/restoration problems on linux. Workaround: set up the game to run in the same resolution as your desktop does. Anything else is likely to Cause Grief.

- the controls are annoying at times, e.g., you can't select any inventory items while you're waiting on a current speaker or animation to finish (and it's not always clear when animations are finished). There are many superfluously long animations. A good half of the clickables in any given scene have no game effect, they just drag out the story.

- though the space bar can be used to show activatable/investigatable zones, this is horribly unconfortable for a game which is otherwise playable with a single hand. It "would be nice" to have a toggle option which turns (and leaves) this display on/off.

- activatable/investigatable zones sometimes overlap with the inventory activation zone (bottom of the screen), making them nearly impossible to activate (one has to fight for a while against the inventory list, which pops up automatically when the mouse hits the botton of the screen). That's is, i dare say, an epic failure.

- whether or not an item/zone can be activated cannot be determined via mouse-over while an animation/speaker is ongoing. You've got to wait until they're done before checking. Clicking bypasses a speaker, but you then risk missing important information. Which reminds me...

- the inability to pause it during speaking sequences (in particular, the early-game ones can be effing long) is problematic when the telephone rings or the neighbor decides to mow his lawn right outside your window, interrupting your game (with no way to repeat what you just missed). Another major usability fail.

- a "hint" button would be a big help. Apparently there is no way to bypass being stuck without reading a walkthrough, but....

- the game only runs in full-screen and alt-tabbing out of it sometimes corrupts its awareness of the mouse, making it impossible to click on anything when returning to the game. In such cases, only Alt-F4 (close window) helps.

- having to click some activation zones multiple times to get to the point is tremendously annoying. e.g. the first click might just tell you what it is. The second click might tell you more about it. The third click might actually let you do something with it. This causes a lot of repeat clicking on items which do _not_ require multiple clicks, as we are forced to click multiple times in order to determine whether multiple clicks are needed for that specific item. Aaarrrggg.


If the story wasn't so entertaining, i'd have stopped playing by now because the quirks of the controls are so frustrating.

Que dire d'un jeu au scénario ultra prenant, d'un jeu aux références diverses et variées sur des classiques (cinéma, jeux vidéos, etc), que dire d'un jeu qui réussit à me faire éclater de rire par ses scènes et ses personnages drôles et sympathiques, que dire d'un jeu agréable, à la bande son formidable et aux graphismes très jolis ?

C'est certainement la phrase interrogative la plus longue que j'ai jamais écrite ! Mais cela en valait la peine pour ce titre.

The Book Unwritten Tales est, comme le dit son titre, un conte humouristique et carrément délirant. C'est un jeu d'aventure type point and click qui vous emmènera dans une aventure épique à travers l'espace et le temps. Comprendront ceux qui joueront !

Un titre culte, à mon avis, à mettre entre toutes les mains ! >> 18/20

Bon jeu point to click...graphiquement assez joli et j'ai bien ri dans certaines séquences. Les énigmes sont assez logique, rien de tordu et en cherchant bien dans le décor les objets, tout semble logique. Enfin un jeu de réflexion où je ne n'ai pas dû aller sur des forums pour être débloquer :) a cause d'énigmes ou d'objets à mettre ensemble incompréhensible ^^.

Very well-made point and click adventure that really sets itself apart from other games in the genre by featuring highly detailed and animated areas as well as great voice acting.

Book of Unwritten Tales claims to be full of humor through parodies to well-known fantasy material. You'll notice more than enough references to Tolkien's Lord of the Ring, plus a bit of Terry Pratchett's Discworld, Harry Power, Indiana Jones, Doctor Who, and of course RPGs or other geekery in general. I wouldn't say the references are all that humorous, nor are they even a decent attempt at humor. The vast majority of the jokes are, "Hey players, look at how we are obviously referencing ______ here!" The jokes fail to be funny on their own, so if you are not familiar with each and every reference, most of the dialogue will seem to be nothing more than idle chatter. Even if you are familiar with the references, you probably won't find them funny.

The puzzles are not particularly challenging to figure out, especially since you're pretty much guaranteed to succeed so long as you interact with all available objects. This becomes quite the chore in the larger areas as you have to sit there and listen to the dialogue for every single item on the screen. You could of course skip the dialogue, but for an adventure game, if you're going to skip the dialogue you may as well not even play the game. Chapter 4 becomes particularly tedious as you are required to trek back and forth across the map numerous times. To make that even worse, two of the puzzles can only be solved with trail and error, so you may be making the same trek multiple times. Pressing the space bar reveals all interaction points in your current area, so it is never a challenge to find everything. Sadly the use of the space bar is almost a necessity because there is nothing to indicate what you can or can't interact with as you play.

This all combines for a game that is okay enough to play in short spurts but not something I'd really want to play for long periods of time. For a 15+ hour game, this is definitely not a good thing. I often found myself quickly reading the subtitles so I could click through the dialogue, really doing anything I could to speed the game along. The game starts off well enough, but by the end I found myself wondering why I even bothered to finish. Chapter 2 has the best characters and best script. Chapter 3 is by far the best chapter in the game in terms of puzzles. After that, though, the game really takes a nose dive on the enjoyment scale.

I do not recommend this.

Solid PnC (Point and Click) adventure game that occassionally breaks the 4th wall to communicate with the player

Pros
======
Similar to traditional PnC adventure game with the addition of spacebar to reveal clickable location (no more click-fest issue like in traditional PnC game)

Cons
======
Voice acting is sub par (lack of emotion from the voice actor)
Spacebar reveal of clickable area sometimes in the wrong location (NOTE: i was using a very high resolution, you probably won't get this bug in lower resolution)

Overview: Point and Click Adventure

This is a fantastic point and click adventure game that should be played by anyone who is a fan of the genre. The setting is fantasy, a beautiful artstyle with some great characters and well written dialogue. The comedy elements are also pretty decent. This is a fairly lengthy adventure ranging anywhere between 10-15 hours depending on skill level. The puzzles are not terribly difficult and find the right balance between fun and challenging. Strongly recommended.

It was fun and enjoyable and met my expectations for the type of game that it is.

My only complaint is the number of times I had to use a walkthrough to figure things out. I wish there was a way to figure out all the places you can click. It really was the small stuff you didn't see that kicks your butt from moving forward. I understand it's hard to make it all clear, but it is frustrating.

Still, if you like this kind of game, play it. I'm glad I did. I do recommend it.

Pretty entertaining game so far. Story is funny at some times and mildly annoying at other. The scavenger hunt / puzzle blend mixed with pertinent conversation choices make for a fun challenege give these games a shot.

This game has lovely humor and is an excellent homage to the RPG and fantasy genre!

This point and click puzzle game has plenty of references to stuff you might be familiar with, as well as it has a humorous story.

The downside of this game is its difficulty, as I found myself having to use a walkthrough several times. That however does not take much away from how amazingly fun this game was!

I also recommend picking up the sequel!

Sympathique Point & Click.

Ce jeu ne m'a pas transcendé, mais reste fort agréable.
Pour le gameplay, c'est du point & click. On joue 3/4 personnages avec quelques particularités.
L'histoire est assez classique. On doit sauver le monde (médiéval-fantastique) du Mal qui menace. Et celà à l'aide d'un gnome, une elfe, un humain amoral et... Critter. Mais tout l'intérêt du jeu, c'est son humour et les références à notre monde qui m'ont plu (culture geek surtout).
Les musiques jouent leur rôle, guère plus.
La durabilité est tout à fait correcte, plus de 10h pour ma part.
