German developer King Art’s new point-and-click adventure game, The Book of Unwritten Tales, is available for download tomorrow, and fans of RPGs and the fantasy genre will not want to miss out on the homage it presents.
Upon its original release in Germany in October 2009, the game received positive reviews and critical acclaim. Just listen to the introduction provided on the game’s website:
In a world torn by war, the aged gremlin archaeologist Mortimer MacGuffin harbours the dark secret of a powerful artefact. Whoever calls this artefact his own, will determine the fate of the world.
While the Army of the Shadows sends out its best and most devious agents to discover the secret, the Alliance’s four heroes find themselves involuntarily drawn into the crisis…
Embedded in the adventure story are puzzles and brain teasers. Players must navigate their four characters through these challenges, the solving of which brings them closer to defeating the Shadows and saving the world.
The Book of Unwritten Tales will be available for Mac OS X and Windows systems tomorrow, and can be downloaded here.
