As it is an Early Access version, it is even more important as usual to collect your feedback, issues, thoughts etc.
For discussion and general feedback, please use this thread: http://steamcommunity.com/app/279940/discussions/0/616187203927495737/

For technical issues and bugs, please use this thread: http://steamcommunity.com/app/279940/discussions/0/616187203927561896/

And here are the Early Access FAQs on The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 which you can also find on the product page:

Why Early Access?
“To get feedback from the community and allow the fans of the first game to play the sequel as early as possible. We want to involve the fans of the series, as well as all new fans, to help us give the game that little bit of extra-polishing. We look forward to the feedback from the players in the Steam forum.”

How long will this game be in Early Access?
“From September 4th, 2014 until the end of January 2015, with a time gap of approximately one month between each chapter.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
“During the Early Access phase we will release four of the five chapters of the game, leading up to the full release of the complete game end of January 2015. The final version will be polished according to the feedback of the community, in terms of difficulty balance of the puzzles, controller-controls, as well as general polishing of animations, sounds and graphics.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?
“Currently the first chapter is playable on PC, Mac and Linux, per mouse or controller.
Over the coming months the other chapters will be released.
Some of the extra content that was made possible through our backers on Kickstarter is not in the game yet and will be implemented via updates over time.
Though the game has already been thoroughly tested on several systems, there might still be certain compatibility or performance issues on specific configurations.
The controller-controls are still being polished, as we want to integrate the feedback of the fans here.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
“We plan to have a higher price starting with the final release than now during the Early Access phase.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?
“We started involving the fans of the series early this year with a Kickstarter campaign and after this very positive experience we want to continue the dialogue between the fans and us and get their feedback about the game in general, particularly the difficulty of puzzles and mini-games, and about the controller-based controls.”

"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!"

Autant j'ai apprécié le premier (voir mon évaluation de The Book of Unwritten 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

Edit du 29/08/14 :
Sans changer ma critique globale du jeu, je me rend compte, aujourd'hui, qu'il s'agissait effectivement d'un Unwritten Tales 1.5 et non d'un potentiel 2.

Very funny, if short, prequel to The Book of Unwritten Tales. Try it on hard mode while waiting for TBUT2 to be released.

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.

Although The Book of Unwritten Tales: The Critter Chronicles was released later than The Book of Unwritten Tales, it's actually the prequel of the series. However, it's significantly shorter than its sequel. Nevertheless, I found its puzzles and story much better and enjoyable.

The Book of Unwritten Tales: The Critter Chronicles is definitely not even close to a masterpiece but it's still a quite decent point-and-click game.
