The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is going to happen. Whether you have finished the first The Book of Unwritten Tales or not, the point-and-click #adventure will continue in the beginning of 2015 on PC, Mac and Linux. However, #KINGArt Games has launched a Kickstarter for fans interested in making the project a bigger, more expansive venture than it already is, and this campaign has surpassed its first two funding goals.
At the time of this writing, the $112,863 that KING Art has gathered will allow the studio to implement projection-mapping in Unwritten Tales 2. The Kickstarter page explains that the result will be better-looking environments and dynamic camera movements, neither of which will crank up the system requirements. Side quests will also be added, rewarding players that take on optional puzzles with equippable garments. KING Art will also produce “Kickstarter-Edition” copies of Unwritten Tales 2, which will come with an artbook, soundtrack and plushies or sock puppets.
With 34 days to go, KING Art is still aiming for additional funding tiers, with extra animations, facial expressions and an orchestra-recorded soundtrack included in the $235,000 Director’s Cut goal. If you need more of an incentive beyond extra game features, pledging $25 or more will reward you with a chapter-by-chapter Steam Early Access release of The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 in the fall of 2014
