The Book of Unwritten Tales Badge
A classic point-and-click adventure game set in a beautiful RPG fantasy world.





In a world torn by war, the aged gremlin archaeologist Mortimer MacGuffin harbors the dark secret of a powerful artifact. Whoever calls this artifact his own, will determine the fate of the world.

While the Army of the Shadows sends out its best and most devious agents to discover the secret, the Alliance's four heroes find themselves involuntarily drawn into the crisis...

• ”You'll have to go all the way back to 1993 until you can find a game that delivers this much fun. Telltale, this is how you should have done when you resurrected the adventure genre. Beware, you're not alone anymore…” – Eurogamer Sweden 9/10
• “This adventure tells a fantastic story with exceptional characters, lots of humor and allusions to well-known fantasy stereotypes and logical puzzles. The 3D landscapes are beautiful and the world made us feel right at home. We had to smile at little details very often and when we finished the game after 20 hours it was actually a melancholy moment - the hallmark of an excellent adventure!” – GameStar 85 %
• “Thrilling. Funny. And visually stunning. No, we are not talking about Uncharted 3, Battlefield 3 or Batman: Arkham City, but about The Book of Unwritten Tales, one of the most beautiful graphic adventures seen in the last years.” – Meristation 8.5/10
• “At nearly 4GB, The Book of Unwritten Tales isn't small in size or scope, and provides a huge amount of entertainment from start to end.” – Adventure Gamers 4.5/5
• “Never in the past decade we've seen such a well-built comedy/ fantasy adventure game, filled to the brim with great narration, sense of purpose and feelings of joy and despair. An absolute must have for every "adventurer".” – 9.5/10
  • Humorous Point & Click homage to the RPG and fantasy genre.
  • About 20 hours of gameplay in a massive game world with detailed graphics.
  • Multi-character gameplay: Play as Wilbur, Nate, Ivo, and the Critter - in turn or simultaneously - and use the skills of your heroes wisely.
  • Meet numerous crazy characters - from two-headed ogres and vegetarian dragons to good-natured zombies.
  • Solve over 150 mind-boggling puzzles and discover more than 300 items that can be used and combined.

  1. The Book of Unwritten Tales
    by Grandmaperson, USA - Jul 3rd 2017

    This game has a cute story line and nice art, but it's way over the top in the convoluted ways it sets out to achieve even the simplest steps forward. If it wasn't for Youtube, and having to quit the game over and over to find out what the heck was going on, I'd never have finished. I'm totally exhausted! If you have nothing better to do than go back and forth a thousand times with each and every step, don't bother buying this game.

  2. A great point and click adventure
    by kyrq, USA - Jul 19th 2015

    Definitely a game worth playing. It's quite entertaining, and while the humor isn't laugh out loud hilarious, its funny in a more tongue in cheek, chuckling way. Lots of fun.

  3. Entertaining point-and-click adventure
    by danny24, Japan - Nov 12th 2014

    Lately, there has been a revival of point-and-click games, and sadly, I don't find this game to be among the top. I finished it and it was good, but that's it. The graphics were good also, but the story of the game didn't impacted me the way I was hoping. For example, Cognition is a point-and-click game too, but I was blown away by the story. The book of unwritten tales was a poor imitation of King's Quest, Monkey Island, and other games that mix adventure and comedy, but here the jokes weren't that funny.
