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.

Meiner Meinung nach eines der besten Point & Clickis. Es gibt viele Orte die alle sehr schön und detailreich gestaltet wurden. Die Personen sind glaubhaft (vom frustrierten Tot, über den zweiköpfigen Oger bis hin zu den Hauptcharakteren) und haben alle einen eigenen Charakter. Dieser kommt besonders gut durch die sehr gelungene Vertonung der Figuren rüber. Aber auch abseits der Gesprächsvertonung ist der Sound top, Musik und Klänge passen eigentlich immer zur jeweiligen Umgebung. Der Humor ist grandios, das Spiel versteht es sich selbst, Computerspiele im allgemeinen sowie viele typische Merkmale beziehungsweise "Klischees" von Fantasywelten zu parodieren und bietet so zahlreiche Querverweise und Anspielungen, über die zumindest ich oft lachen konnte. Die Rätsel sind genau richtig, nicht zu schwer und nicht zu leicht. Die Story ist zwar nicht bahnbrechend und auch nicht originell sondern recht Fantasy typisch, bietet aber einige sehr gelungene Wendungen (insbesondere das Ende) und ist in sich stets schlüssig.
Kurz gesagt, ich kann dieses Spiel jedem ans Herz legen, der irgendetwas für dieses Genre übrig hat.

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 ? ;)

Ein wirklich tolles Spiel, mit vielen Rätseln und kniffligen Angelegenheiten ... Am besten gefallen mir Wilbur mit seinen oft sehr einfachen Ansichten, mit denen er das Spiel zu einer Offenbarung macht ... Ein schöner Clou ist das Vieh ... man versteht seine Sprache nicht und trotzdem ahnt man was er sagt ... Ivo und Nate sind auch Klasse ... die Szene mit den Untoten ist einfach Klasse. Aber ich werde Euch nicht zu viel verraten, sonst kennt ihr das ganze Spiel wer Abenteuerspiele mag sollte es gespielt haben es ist super gemacht.
Grafikmäßig ein Augenschmaus
Anspruchsvolle Aufgaben
Humor und eine schöne Geschichte
Also alles was ein Spiel braucht.

PS: Es gibt noch zwei Folge-Teile

Die Vieh Chroniken ... einfach toll, ich habe das Spiel als erstes gespielt
The Book of Unwirtten Tales 2 ... der zweite Teil, dort kenne ich leider nur das Let's Play und das ist super

Best Adventures come from Germany. The Bremen developer King Art continues this tradition with his equally funny how great fairy tale told The Book of Unwritten Tales continued successfully.
All dialogs are brimming with wit and nice running gags. Special praise is due to the authors of The Book of Unwritten Tales for permanently motivating action, the scores with several twists and a stunning trick just before the final. However, the team away just with the villain, the evil Montroga, lots of potential. The taciturn tentacle monsters scurrying little more than five sentences about the lips, feeling a threat remains largely.

The number of items in the inventory and simultaneously-accessible areas always remains clear. The program also donated sufficient evidence, and the difficulty increases with each of the five acts too pleasant. Cute Ideas spice up the funny brain teasers addition. To draw with Ivo waypoints on a map, open a reminiscent of the board game Mastermind combination lock or mage brew the champion Markus a potion by pass the correct herb with the mouse at the right moment and then stir vigorously. For all the creativity, however, occasional annoying design quirks, such as when puzzles are linked to certain conditions.

A little bit more polish could have used the excellent se operation of The Book of Unwritten Tales. For example, can be very good, but tedious and disruptive character animations not cancel, which is especially annoying when changing the figures. The fact that the heroes go only, but not run, sometimes bothers.

But all this criticism is at a high level, because the gripping story and the lovable hero - the core disciplines of each Adventures - make such quirks more than compensated. The mood-lit and currently unrivaled beautiful 3D landscapes contribute their part.
A great sense of wonder permeates The Book of Unwritten Tales, a terrific take on a traditional point-and-click adventure.

Score: 83 / 100

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
