The Book of Unwritten Tales Review
Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts on The Book of Unwritten Tales by King Art and Nordic Games. I received a key from our friends at GOG for review purposes but like all of my reviews this has no effect on my thoughts and experiences with the game. This review is also originally from my old website and written in 2015. I’ve upgraded the review with a better writing style and a bunch of fixes.
The Book of Unwritten Tales is a humorous game that parodies a lot of different sources including The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, The Corpse Bride, Zorro, Gremlins, MMORPGs, and Magic the Gathering to name a few.
The game follows 4 unlikely heroes including a young gnome named Wilbur Weathervane, an immortal elf called Ivo, a smuggler named Nate Bonnet and an unknown creature called Critter. Each of their stories intertwine and they eventually team up to save the world from an evil arch-witch named Mortroga. There are 5 chapters in the game and once you beat one, you’re able to choose to start a new game from there.
The game is a point and click adventure game and revolves around solving a variety of item based puzzles. There are over 250 different objects that are utilized throughout the game.
I’ll also say that out of all the characters I liked the gnome Wilbur the most. He was an entertaining character throughout the game and his story of becoming a mage was entertaining. Nate was also a great character in the end even though he starts off as a jerk.
Overall, The Book of Unwritten Tales is an excellent adventure filled to the brim with humor and charm. The characters were all enjoyable and the story was great. The music was also very well done and the voice acting is also excellent. The game is a great journey that I highly recommend giving a shot, especially if you’re a fan of humorous adventure games.
Thanks for reading my review folks and I’ll be back with another one soon, until then, happy gaming folks!
