A demo approaches! It's a rather hefty 1.4 gigabyte download containing the majority of the second chapter of The Book Of Unwritten Tales, the comedic fantasy adventure that John is anticipating with some excitement. The version we're awaiting is an English translation, which seems to be strong, and the original German release received a great deal of praise. The narrative follows three controllable characters, switching between their stories, so having the demo plunge into chapter 2 is no doubt more sensible than it may at first appear. I haven't had chance to give it a try yet but as a fan of both pointing and clicking, I certainly will be. The full game is out October 28th, the demo is here and there's a trailer below.
That guy in the trailer? You don't get to be him in the demo. In the demo you play a gnome called Wilbur who works in a pub.
We'll have more thoughts on the game soon.
