Nordic Games announces The Book of Unwritten Tales 2!

11 février 2014

KING Art launches Kickstarter to push boundaries of the point and click genre

Vienna, AUSTRIA (February 11th 2013) – Nordic Games and KING Art have today announced a unique collaboration which will see The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 – the sequel to the much-loved 2011 adventure – released beginning of 2015.

Keen to push the boundaries of the niche point and click genre, KING Art has also launched a Kickstarter to raise funds to develop additional on-top content for the game.

“This is a very ambitious project”, says Martin Kreuch, Producer at Nordic Games. “The fans have been waiting for a new adventure in the world of Aventasia that continues the story of BoUT 1. We have a long and very fruitful track-record working with KING Art, which is why it is important to us to support them in any way that is needed. If KING Art wants to try out something new, why should we be hindering them in doing so? At first, it seemed strange to us thinking about an already funded game being on Kickstarter, but then we were amazed about the possibility to get direct feedback from the crowd about this additional on-top content and features.”

“We’re thrilled to be working alongside Nordic Games again on The Book of Unwritten Tales 2,” adds Jan Theysen, Creative Director, KING Art. “At a later stage of the development process – production start was in October 2012 –, we suggested to Nordic Games to add additional features (multiple ways to solve certain puzzles, optional sidequests with different outfits to customise the appearance of your character etc.) and more community communication to further improve the game. Based on our very positive experience with Kickstarter on a different project (Battle World: Kronos), we suggested involving the community directly via Kickstarter to see if these features are something that gamers would like to see in an adventure game. Every cent from the campaign goes directly into the on-top content and we are excited to see how the adventure community will react to our ambitious plans.”

Released in 2009, The Book of Unwritten Tales was highly acclaimed by press and critics alike. The sequel continues the story of the beloved protagonists of the first part and its add-on.

About The Book of Unwritten Tales 2
The story takes place one year after the events of The Book of Unwritten Tales. Our four playable characters, Wilbur the gnome mage, elven princess Ivo, adventurer Nate and his companion, the critter, all have their own problems to deal with. But then a new threat appears and the four work together to save the world of Aventasia once more.

Players will play each of our heroes individually but there are also times where two or even three characters are being played simultaneously, in order to solve some of the riddles & quests. The game features the city of Seastone and many new locations, like flying pirate cities, sunken desert-temples, the elven palace, the Seastone underground and many more.

"Critter Chronicles is definitely one of the best adventure games in the entire world. It has a nice, simple story, fantastic dialogue, great sense of humor, exceptionally likable characters, excellent English dubbing and really pretty graphics."
9/10 – GRY Online

"Critter Chronicles took me about a dozen hours to complete, and I consistently found it to be enjoyable during that time. The puzzles work well and are sometimes challenging, the writing is amusing enough that the game is entertaining to watch as well as play, and the voice acting is once again terrific."
83/100 – Game Over

"A top shelf adventure game with great puzzles, a smart sense of humor, and penguins!"
4.5/5 – Gamezebo

Autant j'ai apprécié le premier (voir mon évaluation de The Book of Unwrittent Tales), autant celui-ci m'a laissé de marbre, voire pire, m'a agacé !
Oui agacé, c'est bien le mot. Agacé face à un anti-héros bien trop antipathique, à la replique qui ne fait jamais mouche et dont on n'arrive pas à se débarrasser. Agacé par ces allers et retours innombrables, qui semblent n'exister que pour rallonger artificiellement la vie du jeu...

Dans le premier on pouvait incarner près de 4 personnages, ici nous n'en gérons plus que deux :
Le critter, qui reste, ma foi, tout à fait attachant mais dont on se lasse quand même (le langage yahourt est drôle au début, ennuyeux ensuite) et Nate, qu'on frapperait bien. Très fort. Et c'est probablement le personnage le moins bien modélisé et l'était déjà dans le premier.

Le jeu est bien plus court, avec peu de tableau, moins de bonnes idées et moins d'inspiration.
Tout n'est pas à jeter, attention, il y a de bonnes choses dedans et de quoi rire un coup. Mais pas suffisament pour nous tenir en haleine jusqu'au bout.

Pour résumer nous avons ici un Unwritten Tales 1.2, bien plus proche d'un DLC, avec des enigmes plus tordues (ou moins logique) que le premier, un personnage principal qu'on aimerait torturer, quelques décors sympa mais sans plus.

Si vous n'avez pas le premier, faites le premier, si vous l'avez déjà, n'achetez le deux qu'à l'occasion d'une sortie dans un pack, type Humble Bundle.

A noter : Le jeu n'a pas été traduit en français, les sous-titres sont en anglais. Vous pouvez cependant trouver un pack de traduction ICI

These guys just gets it. After playing so many "meh" adventures, and i'm an adventuregame lover, my favorites the last years is the "Book of unwritten tales" games. They do the pop culture thing soo right, and the humour is great, which others do alot in an excessive forced way, like Sam & Max, even though i like those one too. Graphics are great, voicing are great. This one, after just 20 mins after playing, i knew it was a GREAT adventure game. Really recommended it for adventurelovers.

This game has so much charm that i barely know where to start. If you're a fan of point and click games, you will most likely enjoy this. It's fairly short and i have already reached the fourth chapter, but its fun nonetheless. It has really twisted my brian at points trying to figure out how to advance, maybe due to lack of sleep, but its still great. I always love a challenge anyways. But i guess you would have to play it yourself to see how great it is. \\ I also have a sort of head-canon with Nate and Kate Walker from Syberia/Syberia 2.

A terrific humorous adventure, with graphics sort of like finely detailed blown glass (though they do look considerably coarser when zoomed in, which isn't often). The puzzles are quite a bit harder than the original Book of Unwritten Tales (which is welcome since it was a tad too easy), but this one has the same great writing and humor that made the first game so dang lovable. Critter Chronicles is a lot shorter, though, but that's to be expected since it is more of a side story than a full game.

I really enjoyed Unwritten Tales but this is not a good sequel. Not a very interesting story and very poor puzzles. Also buggy, games saved outside the mage tower always crashed.
