The Book of Unwritten Tales


The Book of Unwritten Tales is a celebration of the classic point and click adventure games. With spirited dialog, dazzling imagery and logical

The Book of Unwritten Tales


The point-and-click adventure has become a niche genre in the almost two decades since its heyday. Physics engines and the nature of their games have usurped the puzzle game throne, bringing about a host of new players. While the variety of...

Take the best scenes from every major sci-fi fantasy imaginable, add in classic 90's puzzle solving, mix this all with a clever sense of humor, and A Book of Unwritten Tales emerges. The North American release will attract players familiar with the...

The Book of Unwritten Tales- PC


Jim Croce was right. You don't tug on Superman's cape or spit into the wind — and you certainly don't make a point-and-click adventure that takes longer than three average shooters to finish. And yet, that's what developer King Art has done with The...

The Book of Unwritten Tales is living proof of the old adage that less is more. It’s a fine artistic achievement with loads of creativity and surprises (a Guitar Hero-style puzzle; a dungeon crawl; etc.) and a script with lots of in-jokes for fans of...

The Book of Unwritten Tales


The Book of Unwritten Tales opens with the abduction of an archeologist gremlin having found the secret to help the Alliance finally win the war against the Army of Shadows. The first of three player characters, Ivo, witnesses the abduction, and...

Puzzles walk the line between maddening difficulty and boring simplicity ; Writing mixes fantasy tropes and humor well

Quest system relies too heavily on fetch quests ; Some graphical problems

All games with good writing deserve attention, but The Book of Unwritten Tales shows that even by-the-book adventure games can deliver.

The Book of Unwritten Tales Review


Unwritten Tales draws some clear inspiration from classic adventure tropes, but still manages to carve out its own well-produced and charming fantasy game.

Funny; great art design; interesting characters; good voice acting for the most part

Majority of puzzles are not challenging; ends rather abruptly; story is fairly meaningless

Unwritten Tales has been available in the UK and Germany for nearly a year at this point so some of you may be familiar with it already. But now that it's on the cusp of its US release on July 31st for both Steam and GoH and has the potential to find a...

The Book of Unwritten Tales: Die Vieh Chroniken (The Critter Chronicles)


When we met [Producer] Egbert Latza from HMH and [Lead Designer] Jan Theysen from King Art at a pub on Tuesday before gamescom, we were hoping to get our hands on new information and maybe even some pictures of the latest project from the team that...

The Book of Unwritten Tales


The Book of Unwritten Tales (BOUT) is a colorful point-and-click adventure from German developer KING Art Games. It was released in Europe in 2009 and is now finally available in the United States. Sometimes when a text-heavy game like this is...

Unfortunately, BOUT overstays its welcome a little. Most adventures clock in at around 10-12 hours, but BOUT took me 18 hours to complete -- and that's without much time spent spinning my wheels trying to figure out puzzles. You'd think that longer...

Overall The Book of Unwritten Tales is a solid, engaging, and charming adventure title. Fans of the genre would do well to pick it up and ponder its secrets. Independent developers deserve our continued support, and sometimes that means rewarding them...
