Nordic Games and King Art have just announced that The Critter Chronicles, the prequel to the critically acclaimed The Book of Unwritten Tales (BoUT), will be released on December 5thon all major digital retailers.

The Critter Chronicles is the first chapter in the epic journey before BoUT which 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.

“It’s always a pleasure to work with King Art, they produce high quality games not only in terms of production quality but especially in its witty and charming humour.” said Reinhard Pollice, Business & Product Development Manager Nordic Games. “KING Art knows how to pack the game full of the best innuendos and pay homage to the RPG and fantasy genre which is exactly what we want to provide not only to Adventure-players, but to Fantasy and RPG fans alike.”

“The collaboration between ourselves and Nordic Games is really going from strength to strength,” said Jan Theysen, Creative Director at King Art . “It’s great to see that The Book of Unwritten Tales has also made its way into the hearts and minds of players in North America and we hope that The Critter Chronicles will give players even more content to enjoy from the Aventasia universe.”

The Critter Chronicles is due to be released for PC, MAC and Linux.
