SEATTLE — June 22, 2023 — The Bookwalker: Thief of Tales, a gripping narrative adventure from DO MY BEST (the creators of the indie hit The Final Station) and publisher tinyBuild, stands on the edge of fiction and reality on PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and Xbox Game Pass today.


Traverse between realms as Etienne Quist, a writer-turned-thief with the ability to travel through fiction and reality. Aim to shorten Quist’s writer’s block sentencing and reclaim his previously revered status after a criminal boss makes him an offer: steal legendary artifacts found only in books.


Enter the world of six popular tales, all modernized and with unexpected twists, to trek across snow-covered mountains, sneak through a gloomy medieval prison, and go into orbit on a space-traveling vessel to procure the artifacts. Come across many treasures such as the bubbling Potion of Immortality, the shining Excalibur, and the all-powerful hammer once only wielded by Thor.


Evade the writer’s police in turn-based battles and fight fellow storied villains like shape shifting entities, or the undead using the last drops of your writers abilities. Scavenge for items to replenish ink, a bookwalker’s source of power to defeat foes and manipulate objects within the books.


Meet a cast of eccentric characters on this page-turning adventure. Keep an unlikely companion along for the journey: a curious and mysterious caged page taken away from an unknown book. Craft items and tools and use each instrument to aid the story’s progression and solve puzzles between reality and fiction. Stick through tales and words to uncover the man behind the thefts and why Quiest’s was chosen for the job.


“We created The Bookwalker: Thief of Tales to offer a special narrative experience that explores the question of character agency in fictional worlds,” said Oleg Sergeev, Co-Founder of DO MY BEST. “Its gameplay was crafted to give readers a deep immersion into every atmosphere with its impassioned narrative and dialogues.”


The Bookwalker: Thief of Tales is available on PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and Xbox Game Pass now for USD $14.99 with a limited time 10% discount during launch week. Steam players with The Final Station in their library can purchase the DO MY BEST bundle to receive The Bookwalker: Thief of Tales with an additional 10% discount. The Bookwalker supports English, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese languages.


Happy Gaming!

Thank you Ana!

The graphics look crisp. But, as usual, I would have preferred a trailer that showed actual gameplay.

Turn based tactics for an adventure game?

Hence my first sentence in the post "**Depending on feedback, may be moved to DarkSide**"
Sometimes those things are nothing because it requires no dexterity or anything other than clicking a mouse. According to reviews on Steam they are nothing and very simple so so far I am leaving as an adventure.

These are my initial impressions after completing book 3 of The Bookwalker. Let's begin with the positive aspects.
The ability to dive into books is particularly original and engaging. The game presents moments of breathtaking beauty, especially in the snowy mountains, and the well-designed main character with a book-shaped head is visually appealing.
Now, onto the drawbacks. The combat system's turn-based mechanics quickly become monotonous (fortunately, there are not many), and the controls feel clunky, especially when the main character abruptly stops after running. I would recommend playing this game using only a mouse and keyboard.

Graphics : Good
Story : Very Good
Difficulty : Easy
Run time : Probably around 6-7 hours, 1 hour per book.

I made a guide with timestamps to help people to unlock all achievements until Book 3. If you are interested, check out GuyLinkBrush Gaming channel on Youtube.

Have fun!

You're welcome! I've recently completed the game and I recommend it for its captivating story. It's not perfect as I mentioned before but If you have the PC Game Pass, I suggest downloading this game as it stands out as one of the most intriguing titles in their catalogue.

It's a hybrid game I would have tended to file under RPG, but Adventure games cover a very wide range.

Worth mentioning there are two different game interfaces depending on whether you're inside a book or not. Outside a book I'm using the keyboard to move around inside a first person 3D world, mouse to change where you're looking. This interface at least requires a decent system to run on. Inside a book you have a third person isometric view which I prefer personally.
