The Book of Living Magic is the Point-and-Click Adventure I Never Knew I Wanted

on August 24, 2011 10:00 PM

To say The Book of Living Magic is bizarre would be a gross understatement; it’s a trip from beginning to end. The insanely creative point-and-click adventure is done in the style of coloring books, which is odd in and of itself, but it also has an absolutely out-there story that’s both endearing and WTF-worthy at the same time.

It’s a bit wordy, but if you’re a fan of Roald Dahl novels and books about faraway lands like The Phantom Tollbooth, it most certainly is worth your time and patience. I’m slightly hungover at this moment, and even through the nausea, I’m still glued to the narrative with childlike wonder. Play it here.
