KING Art Games and Nordic Games have launched a Kickstarter for The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 – sort of.
This is a bit of an unusual one, you see. The point-and-click adventure sequel has already been fully funded by Nordic Games and will be coming out in 2015; this particular Kickstarter is pretty much a Kickstarter aimed at making it bigger and better. Regardless of whether KING Art get the $65,000 they’re asking for, the game will come out in 2015.
That $65,000 will result in the game using “projection mapping” – which is apparently a magical technique that will make the game look better – and a Kickstarter Edition of the game that’ll come with all sorts of goodies, like an artbook, mousepad, and Critter plushie. $95,000 will add non-essential puzzle chains in the form of side quests, as well as in-game costumes as rewards for these side quests. $145,000 will result in a production blog and Making-Of video series, plus orchestral music. Finally, $235,000 will result in the game having a full orchestral soundtrack, more animations, more facial expressions, and more camera angles and close-ups to make the best use of these animations and facial expressions.
Pledges begin at $5 for forum access and a wallpaper, with $25 netting you a digital copy of the game. You can pay right the way up to $5,000, which nets you all sorts of goodies as well as the ability to accompany the team for a day during development.
If you fancy making The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 bigger and better than it could be, then you’ve got 39 days to do so.
