The Book Of Unwritten Tales Gets A Second Tale

Today we players of games are spoiled for choice when it comes to adventure games. Wadjet Eye release a steady stream of interesting pointers and clickers, Double Fine are halfway through a new game and recently re-released a classic, Telltale have reinvented parts of the genre and are off doing their own thing, Sierra has been sort-of resurrected and a new King's Quest is coming, and that's barely scratching…

Hands On: The Book Of Unwritten Tales

I'm not sure what I want from an adventure game any more. I'm not even sure I want adventure games any more.
