Vienna (Austria)/Bremen (Germany), September 4th 2014:


The eagerly anticipated sequel to the successful adventure game The Book of Unwritten Tales gets its first publicly playable version! On 4th September, KING Art and Nordic Games released the Early Access version of The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 on Steam.

At a price point of EUR 29.99/USD 29.99/GBP 24.99, the full game including all future updates can be purchased. The entire first chapter is ready to play and awaits players to delve into the world of Aventásia. Collect the first clues about the despicable epidemic that is slowly but surely infesting the land. Why despicable you ask? This epidemic is pink, fluffy, and threatens to shake the foundations of fantasy worlds as one cherishes it. Who wants gentle, inoffensive trolls without any social disorder, anyway.

Thanks to its projection mapping technology, the world of The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 looks enchanting in any colour, but pink is far far away from being the new black. Fortunately, there’s a wonderful reunion for our heroes from the first part, Wilbur, Nate, Princess Ivo and the Critter, who are ready to take it up with this shimmering menace.

“The first chapter in our early access version is around 95% complete”, said Jan Theysen, creative director at KING Art. “A couple of parts are missing, like for example the orchestral soundtrack, as all the recordings will take place at once, and some of the additional, optional side quests that BoUT 2 will introduce to the classic point & click adventure. Feedback from the community is especially important to us at this stage” Theysen continues.

The Early Access version will be released for PC, MAC and Linux. However, King Art expressly requests that no reviews be written based on this version of The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 – a lot more hard work is yet to go into the adventure and the Early Access is an invitation to fans and interested parties to participate in the development process of the game.

Needless to say, all backers (with a backing of at least USD 25) of the Kickstarter campaign will receive the Early Access to The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 for free. The plan is to release the upcoming chapter of the game at intervals of 4-6 weeks, until the final version of the crazy adventure will be available in off- and online stores in January 2015. There will also be DRM-free versions available (boxed and digital). The five chapters of the game will have a total playing time of over 20 hours, making The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 one of the largest adventures ever.




Happy Gaming!

Thanks, Ana! I got to try it since I pledged to their Kickstarter. thumbsup I really like it so far, though I do hope they implement a way to skip the tutorial in the beginning. I assume as it's still in beta, that option will be there eventually. Other than than, it looks great, and it's entertaining so far very much like the first one. thumbsup I'm looking forward to playing more of it today.

Please remember to limit your critiques to the early release discussion board on Steam. It's fine to say a generic comment such as you are enjoying it but any negative or other comments need to be placed in the appropriate forum.

This game has been fantastic so far. I got the early access on Steam and have finished chapter 1. If you have played The Book of Unwritten Tales 1 then you will like this one (at least I have so far). If you haven't played Tales 1, it available on Steam for $1.99.
