Finally! Nordic Games has released The Book of Unwritten Tales to Linux. Now available for download through Steam Linux Beta, the game now enables the gaming community to fully immerse themselves in Tux’s version of Aventasia.
About The Book of Unwritten Tales
The Book of Unwritten Tales was set in Aventasia, a world that is torn by war. It features an aged gremlin archaeologist Mortimer McGuffin, who discovered a reference to a legendary artifact of unimaginable power. Apparently, whoever holds the treasure in their hands will determine the fate of the world.
On the other hand, the Army of the Shadows sends out its best agents in order to hunt for the said artifact. Because of that, the Alliance’s heroes found themselves involuntarily drawn into the crisis. According to Reinhard Pollice, Nordic Games’ Business and Product Development official:
Linux has always had a very dedicated user base and I am happy to see that gaming expands its horizons with a platform like Steam. As part of out strategy, we want to be early adopters on platforms and operating systems that suit our games. Linux is definitely a great opportunity to make our games available to a broader audience and we are pleased to say that The Book of Unwritten Tales is simply the first of them to be developed for the Linux platform.
KING Art’s Creative Director Jan Theysen also added:
We’re excited for players to finally get their hands on the Steam Linux version. It will also allow fans of the game and those who may not have played before to be part of something special in PC gaming history.
The Book of Unwritten Tales—Gameplay and Rating
Nordic Games’ latest Linux title challenges players with a series of puzzles and brain teasers presented in a traditional point-and-click adventure game. The puzzles are embedded in an adventure story that usually takes most players an average of 24 hours to complete. Aside from the puzzles and brain teasers, the game’s most notable feature is the player’s capability to control four different characters.
