The Book of Unwritten Tales to be told

With the Games Convention in Leipzig just around the corner, cue the announcement of new adventures from Germany that will debut at this year's show.

One of the first to be unveiled is The Book of Unwritten Tales, a fantasy tale from HMH Interactive and KingArt Games. A classic point-and-click adventure, the game is referred to by its publisher as an homage to the great fantasy books, movies, and games. Filled with weird characters and dark humour, The Book of Unwritten Tales features four playable characters who must each use their different skills to solve various challenges, including some that can only be achieved by working together as a team. The protagonists include 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. Players can switch the controllable character at any time, and depending on which character is selected, the game even promises alternate solutions to certain puzzles.

While little is known about the story so far, the game will reportedly include more than 150 puzzles and approximately 200 different items to interact with, all within a semi-linear structure that allows players to solve various tasks in any order. There is additional information about the game at its official website, but it's only in German for now, though an English translation is soon on the way. Stay tuned for more coverage following GC, then, as we'll no doubt be hearing more at that time, along with another new game announcement from HMH, to be developed by Jack Keane and Ankh developer Deck13.
