The Book of Unwritten Tales is a indie-developed adventure game that has been a big critical hit in the developer KING Art Games' native Germany. Now the game has been translated into English and is ready for a fall release. 

The story follows four characters -- Wilbur the Gnome, Princess Evo the forest elf, and Nate & "Critter," a traveling buccaneer and his hairy friend -- who are trying to stop an evil gremlin archeologist (those guys are the worst) from obtaining an artifact that will control the fate of the world. The developers are promising a "humorous homage to the adventure and RPG genres."

Point-and-click games have definitely had a resurgence over the last few years and The Book of Unwritten Tales looks like it could be one to watch; the in-game art especially looks amazing.

Matador is now Brigador, still a cool looking mech shooter

I decided to do some checking on Matador, which won me over early this year. This proved confusing, briefly, as some legal issues have pushed the isometric mech shooter to be renamed Brigador. I kind of miss the name, but al...more

U Craft seeks to fill the Minecraft void on Wii U

There might not be Minecraft for Wii U, but there is U Craft. Close enough? This is in the works at Nexis Games, the studio behind some games I'm also not familiar with -- do BrickBlast U! or The Dance of the Damned ring any ...more

I had a good time watching Monsterum scare people

I talked yesterday about how horror games are difficult to demo at a convention; you need to block out so much noise and activity around you to be really immersed in what you're playing. Team Junkfish had no such problems as...more
