Nordic Games announces The Book of Unwritten Tales 2!
KING Art launches Kickstarter to push boundaries of the point and click genre

Vienna, AUSTRIA (February 11th 2013) – Nordic Games and KING Art have today announced a unique collaboration which will see The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 – the sequel to the much-loved 2011 adventure – released beginning of 2015.

Here is the Steam Coming Soon page:

Keen to push the boundaries of the niche point and click genre, KING Art has also launched a Kickstarter to raise funds to develop additional on-top content for the game.

View The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 Kickstarter page here:

“This is a very ambitious project”, says Martin Kreuch, Producer at Nordic Games. “The fans have been waiting for a new adventure in the world of Aventasia that continues the story of BoUT 1. We have a long and very fruitful track-record working with KING Art, which is why it is important to us to support them in any way that is needed. If KING Art wants to try out something new, why should we be hindering them in doing so? At first, it seemed strange to us thinking about an already funded game being on Kickstarter, but then we were amazed about the possibility to get direct feedback from the crowd about this additional on-top content and features.”

“We’re thrilled to be working alongside Nordic Games again on The Book of Unwritten Tales 2,” adds Jan Theysen, Creative Director, KING Art. “At a later stage of the development process – production start was in October 2012 –, we suggested to Nordic Games to add additional features (multiple ways to solve certain puzzles, optional sidequests with different outfits to customise the appearance of your character etc.) and more community communication to further improve the game. Based on our very positive experience with Kickstarter on a different project (Battle World: Kronos), we suggested involving the community directly via Kickstarter to see if these features are something that gamers would like to see in an adventure game. Every cent from the campaign goes directly into the on-top content and we are excited to see how the adventure community will react to our ambitious plans.”

Released in 2009, The Book of Unwritten Tales was highly acclaimed by press and critics alike. The sequel continues the story of the beloved protagonists of the first part and its add-on.

About The Book of Unwritten Tales 2
The story takes place one year after the events of The Book of Unwritten Tales. Our four playable characters, Wilbur the gnome mage, elven princess Ivo, adventurer Nate and his companion, the critter, all have their own problems to deal with. But then a new threat appears and the four work together to save the world of Aventasia once more.

Players will play each of our heroes individually but there are also times where two or even three characters are being played simultaneously, in order to solve some of the riddles & quests. The game features the city of Seastone and many new locations, like flying pirate cities, sunken desert-temples, the elven palace, the Seastone underground and many more.

Please make sure that any and all future titles by Nordic support at least the 16:9 standard (1920x1080p). 16:10 (Book of Unwritten Tales 1 and Critter Chronicles) has been obsolete since 2008.

Hope it comes to Steam! And if it does, can we have trading cards and achievements this time? Not really needed, as the game is just plain great, but achievements would be nice to earn :)
