The Book of Unwritten Tales 2

A continuation of the 2009’s hilarious adventure game developed by KING Art Games that tells a story of the search for a powerful magical artifact. The story of the second installment picks up one year after the events shown by its predecessor, allowing players to control the team of heroes aided by an amiable creature named Critter – one might remember all these characters from the first game. Gameplay mechanics did not change significantly and they still draw from the solutions typical for point & click adventure games. During the game, players have to solve many new riddles – in order to do this, one is bound to use the characters’ unique skills. Like in its predecessor, the gameplay in The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is filled with humor making fun of the fantasy clichés found in many books, movies, and games (among others, The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The Song of Ice and Fire, Discworld, and World of Warcraft). The visuals have been significantly improved but the game still features the same specific style one might remember from the first installment.

The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 for Apple iOS is a continuation of a well-received humorous point-and-click adventure game. The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 has been developed by the Dutch KING Art Games in cooperation with Nordic Games Publishing – this is the second publisher KING ART has been working with, as the first one, Hamburger Medien Haus went bankrupt. The new partner of the Dutch developers helped them with publishing their game on different platforms, thus broadening their fandom.

Plot

In The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, players get to control their old friends – Wilbure the gnome, the elvish princess Ivo, the bounty hunter Nate, and the amiable creature named Critter. The story sets off one year after the events from the series’ first installment. The Kingdom of Aventasia has fallen victim to a mysterious plague that turns sinister beasts into sweet puppies, while the powerful castles are transformed into dollhouses. In the face of this unexpected turn of events, the group of heroes take up on their shoulders the task to reach the source of this phenomenon and solve its mystery.

Mechanics

A player gets to control each one of the four available characters separately; however, there are times when it is necessary to control two or even three simultaneously. As befits a point & click adventure game, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 does not lack many logical puzzles and side quests – designing additional quests was possible thanks to the support of the gaming community that funded the game through the Kickstarter campaign.

Technical aspects

The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 features visuals similar to those from the previous installment, however, developers have improved them significantly. Character models were created in 3D, while the entire game is set in a colorful and humorous style that matches the light spirit of the story it tells.
