Nordic Games has announced that The Critter Chronicles, the prequel to the critically acclaimed The Book of Unwritten Tales will be released on December 5th for PC, MAC and Linux.


The hilarious point and click fantasy adventure The Critter Chronicles is the first chapter in the epic journey before BoUT. Created by KING Art, BoUT was originally released in 2009, and has been released online in July 2012.

A beautiful tale that allows players to travel back to the very beginning when Nate Bonnett first met his hairy sidekick Critter – adventurers can assume the role of either character. Set in the fantasy world Aventasia, there is plenty of magic to experience before or after moving into The Book of Unwritten Tales.

KING Art has worked hard to improve background graphics and to also include facial animation. The Critter Chronicles will now include sound and lip movement, something not included in the original release of BoUT, creating a stunning story for seasoned players and newcomers alike.

Travel from the Northlands to the Mage’s Tower of Seastone and experience an additional story before The Book of Unwritten Tales. Along the way players will meet new characters including an animal rights activist Petra, a schizophrenic Yeti, and the Critters.

The Linux Beta version of The Book of Unwritten Tales is now open to all Steam account users now for a limited period only:
