"It’s a comforting reminder that video games can still hark back to their traditional roots and produce an enjoyable experience without any overblown live-action trailer or day one DLC. This is a delight to play." - 9/10 [- Game Watcher ]
"I can’t recommend this series enough for anyone who wants to sit down and enjoy an old style point and click adventure game." - 5/5 [- Gaming Shogun ]
"KING Art has outdone themselves with 'Book of Unwritten Tales 2' and firmly established their craft as premiere adventure developers. This is a long game for the genre, over 20 hours, with a reasonable price point. It is also laugh-out-loud funny in many places and has an acerbic wit as well as excellent pacing and puzzles, and manages to accomplish all of this without taking itself too seriously. It is one of the best adventure games in recent memory." - 4.5/5 [- High-Def Digest ]
Legend foretold it. Prophecies predicted it. Chosen ones chose to believe in it. Now the adventure saga continues. A sequel is coming. Join Wilbur, Ivo, Nate and Critter in another classic point-and-click adventure in the wicked world of Aventásia. Help them fulfill their destiny. A destiny as yet unwritten.
A few years have passed since our heroes heroically defeated the arch-witch Mortroga. And their lives, like the lives of most people in Aventásia, are still in turmoil. The War of the Two Towers is over, but the wounds it left upon the land are still bleeding.
The gnome Wilbur Weathervane is struggling with his new job as a teacher at the reopened School for Wizardry and Witchcraft. His magic wand is having a mind of its own and an assassination plot against the arch-mage overshadows the first democratic elections in Seastone.
Faced with political intrigues that threaten the delicate balance of peace, Wilbur is in dire need of his old friends. But the elf princess Ivo and the adventurer Nate have, after a brief romantic interlude, gone their separate ways.
Ivo has returned to her gilded cage in the elf kingdom, overprotected by her controlling mother.
Nate along with his trusty companion Critter has been taken prisoner on the flying island of his arch-enemy the Red Pirate.
But fate does not rest. A darkness has fallen upon the land, or rather, a pinkness. A magic force is turning mighty beasts into fluffy plush puppies and towering castles into oversized dollhouses. Every world needs its heroes. However unlikely they may seem.

The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is great adventure which is quite big (~20 hours) and thus is something which is rare nowadays. If you like adventure games in the spirit of ?Monkey Island? you need to get BoUT2 (and 1 if you haven?t played it). The people at KingArt, who developed this game, poured their heart and soul into it and the game shows it. The lovely crafted scenes in the background, the witty and funny dialogues and the many references to pop culture already earned a sweet spot in my geeky heart.
First game was average at best - weak jokes, weak characters, easy puzzles and could feel pretty short. While the prequel fixed many things, it was insanely lacking content. This game is actually a nice mix of both of them. Characters in this game are the same as in the first game, but they actually developed and are not as annoying as they were in the first game. Graphics got better, music is really nice, and while there are references, those are thankfuly not a driving force anymore but more of a background thing, which is nice. Thanks to that the jokes are much better. The only thing bad about this game, really, is the extremely slow start - the part in the school goes on forever and barely anything is accomplished. The game is also much longer than previous ones and it can take around 25 hours to complete, which is pretty good. Worst offender, though, is yet another cliffhanger ending, meaning we will have to wait years to find out how this will end. Overall, pretty good adventure game, strongly recommended for fans of the genre.
The first Book of Unwritten tales was a fantastic game, and featured some of the best storytelling for a game of its time, and this game is no different. The developers put a lot of time in making a good game that they KNOW that their fans are going to enjoy. The game has LOTS of good dialogue, tons of side quests to distracts you, and plenty of puzzles to solve along the entire way. The music in this game is superb, and you could seriously just put the game on, and then listen to the music, because they obviously knew what they were doing when they composed the soundtrack for this game. The graphics of the game aren't SUPER great, but it has it's own unique art style that defines the series as its own game, which is smart, because people will remember this game for it's graphics. Altogether, it is a very fun game.
