The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 Lands On Early Access
Publisher Nordic Games has put The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 on Steam through Early Access. So far, only the first chapter of the full release is available, with five being made for full release.
The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is one of developer King Art Games’ point and click adventures. Previously, the team also worked on The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief.
Its story will follow characters from its previous installment, such as the small gnome, Wilbur Weathervane. Events will take place a few years after that of the first game, so Wilbur will now be a wizard.
This game is a marriage between the old uses of the genre, complete with whimsical banter, with newer design choices for the modern gamer. In fact, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 looks visually impressive in its illustrious locations full of little details.
Part of this enhanced look comes from a successful Kickstarter campaign, which the developer ran, despite being able to complete a full product. A crowd-funding campaign was put out there as an optional thing, in case fans wanted to have some extras, to which people massively responded.
Of the asked $65,000, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 managed to rake in $171,593. In doing so, it added multiple stretch goals, such as orchestrated music.
Kickstarter also contributed to the game receiving projection mapping, so that environments could be given more depth and a rotating camera, which is a rarity in point and click land. Moreover, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is fitted with optional side-quests that grant characters additional outfits.
A new chapter of The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 will land each month, with the release pointed for early 2015. It already looks pretty great, so the only thing troubling us would be that the game sells for $29.99 for North America, but a completely unequal €29.99 for Europeans.
