The Book of Unwritten Tales

Developer Release Year Platforms
PC, Linux

The Book of Unwritten Tales is a humorous homage to the great fantasy books, movies, and games of the genre, filled with plenty of weird characters and dark humour. The game features four playable heroes (the little gnome Wilbur; the elf princess Ivo; a human adventurer named Nate; and The Critter, a shaggy creature that Nate adopted on one of his journeys and hasn't stopped trotting behind him ever since) whose skills have to be used wisely, particularly those that can only be solved by working as a team.
