Gaming Illustrated recently posted a new review of Nordic Games' The Book of Unwritten Tales. The humorous point and click adventure game pays homage to the genre with a variety of zany characters and over 150 puzzles for players to solve. Gaming Illustrated gave Unwritten Tales a score of 93%.

From the review:

The puzzles in The Book of Unwritten Tales tend to be fairly logical, something that canít be said for the many of the genreís forebears. This is a much appreciated aspect of the game, as it lessens the need for the player to seek out hints and walkthroughs. I donít know whether itís a product of my experience, or a testament to the thoughtfulness of the developers, but I managed to beat the game without having to consult a single walkthrough. That isnít to say the game is too easy, as I certainly had my fair share of stumps. If youíre an experienced player, you may find the first couple of chapters to be almost too easy, but the puzzles and interactions do get more complex as the game progresses. While the gameplay feels wholly familiar, TBoUT manages to introduce fresh twists on the genre, like switching between multiple active characters. Thereís also a rhythm based mini-game thrown in for good measure.
