Adventure gaming fans waiting for the release of The Book of Unwritten Tales now have the chance to get their hands on this promising game. Publisher Lace Mamba Global and developer King Art today released the public English language version demo of the upcoming adventure title. It features a big part of chapter 2 of the game, offering approximately 3 hours of gameplay time just in this free demo alone!
The demo (1.4 GB) is available for download at www.unwritten-tales.com. The Book of Unwritten Tales will be released in the UK and Ireland on October 28th, 2011.
In chapter 2, players slip into the role of little gnome Wilbur Weathervane, who is on his way to bring a magical ring to the human town of Seastone and to meet up with the arch mage of the humans. Wilbur needs to get accepted as a student at Master Marcus’ magical school and to earn his mage diploma by solving three difficult tasks.
The Book of Unwritten Tales is a humorous point & click adventure homage to the RPG and fantasy genres, its books, movies and games. Filled with plenty of weird characters and dark humour, the game features four playable heroes: The little gnome Wilbur, the elf princess Ivo, a human adventurer named Nate, and The Critter, a shaggy creature that Nate adopted on one of his journeys, and hasn’t stopped trotting behind him ever since. Their skills have to be used wisely to solve the game’s puzzles, particularly on those that can only be solved by working as a team.
Featuring about 20 hours of gameplay in a massive game world with detailed graphics, The Book of Unwritten Tales offers more than 150 mind-boggling puzzles and numerous crazy characters, ranging from two-headed ogres and vegetarian dragons to good-natured zombies.
