Satirical fantasy adventure The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 out now
Nordic Games and KING Art are proud to release the epic adventure The Book of Unwritten Tales 2. The sequel to the critically acclaimed The Book of Unwritten Tales sees another excellently written storyline, spoofing around popular RPGs, fantasy novels and movies, and is now available on PC, Mac and Linux.
“I’m thrilled that it’s ready! I’m proud to be part of a collective that really delivers on the promises made on a Kickstarter campaign, even over delivered in some aspects,” said Jan Theysen, Creative Director, KING Art. “Both Nordic Games and KING Art have had the foundations for The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 to be produced, but the funding and pledges from the community helped make the game the very best it can be. We hope this will serve as an example of how community integration on Kickstarter and Early Access can work effectively to benefit the development of creating an awesome game.”
“This is just as much the community’s game as anyone else’s,” said Martin Kreuch, Producer, Nordic Games. “I think it really benefited from having the usual developer/publisher relationship, topped off with huge input from so many players from the backing community and also during Early Access. That unique combo has resulted in an amazing title that the fans can be proud of and will seriously enjoy – as well as players new to the genre that want to play something mixing the classical adventure style with modern satirical wit.”
Partially funded through Kickstarter, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 has over 20 hours of classic adventure gameplay that consist of voice acting of the highest standard, hundreds of bizarre, yet logical puzzles to get your head around, and also the well proven multi-character gameplay.
Projection Mapping technology unites the merits of 2D and 3D styles and techniques, which allows to deliver an ensemble of quirky characters, brand new ones and the established ones, such as the four main characters Wilbur, Nate, Ivo and Critter.
The trademark BoUT humour lovingly spoofs fantasy luminaries, such as World of Warcraft, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Discworld, The Hobbit and more, all accompanied by a soundtrack with both new compositions and recognisable classics.
The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is available in English and German on PC, Mac and Linux.
