The Book of Unwritten Tales is a humorous point & click adventure homage to the RPG and fantasy genres, its books, movies and games. Filled with plenty of weird characters and dark humour, the game features four playable heroes: The little gnome Wilbur, the elf princess Ivo, a human adventurer named Nate, and The Critter, a shaggy creature that Nate adopted on one of his journeys, and hasn’t stopped trotting behind him ever since. Their skills have to be used wisely, particularly those that can only be solved by working as a team.
German press critically acclaimed this adventure gaming gem. The game received twelve rartings of 90 % / 9.0 or more, the average score is 86.7 %. German magazine “PC Games” called The Book of Unwritten Tales “easily the most recommendable adventure game in years”. “GameStar” stated: “This adventure tells a fantastic story with exceptional characters, lots of humour and allusions to well-known fantasy stereotypes and logical puzzles. The 3D landscapes are beautiful (…)”.
