New Today On Origin: The Book of Unwritten Tales: The Critter Chronicles


The Critter Chronicles is a stand-alone prequel to the popular fantasy point-and-click adventure The Book of Unwritten Tales. In this game, we follow the story of Nate, the goofy antihero, and his furry gibbering friend Critter as they meet and embark on their first quest. The original Book of Unwritten Tales took a playful swing at pop culture and gaming culture with jabs at Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, and online role-playing games among others. It also featured a well-developed cast of bizarrely funny characters, and the prequel looks to be following suit. Nate and Critter will encounter a schizophrenic yeti, plus Critter’s own clan of weird relatives. Featuring strong voice acting and beautiful graphics to accompany the clever writing and puzzles, Critter Chronicles promises to be both challenging and immensely entertaining for kids and adults alike, and can be yours today.
