KING Art Games 2011 PC, Linux

The Book of Unwritten Tales is a humorous homage to the great fantasy books, movies, and games of the genre, 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) whose skills have to be used wisely, particularly those that can only be solved by working as a team.


The Book of Unwritten Tales review

4.5 stars: "A superb game that excels in just about every area, held back only by one or two notable flaws or a collection of smaller ones that prevent the game from earning full marks."

If you've been yearning for a quest-filled fantasy epic, this excellent adventure will surely send a tingle down your spine.
