The Bookwalker: Thief of Tales

Reality meets fiction in an exciting new narrative adventure, The Bookwalker: Thief of Tales, launched today across multiple platforms, including PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and the Xbox Game Pass. This highly anticipated release comes from the inventive minds at DO MY BEST, the creators behind the indie sensation The Final Station, with publisher tinyBuild’s support.

The Bookwalker Thief of Tales

Step into the shoes of Etienne Quist, a once-renowned writer now turned thief. Tormented by writer’s block, Quist finds his career at a standstill until a proposition from a criminal boss offers him a lifeline. His task? To steal legendary artifacts that exist only within the pages of books. As a ‘Bookwalker,’ Quist possesses the unique ability to traverse between the realms of reality and fiction, an ability that will be crucial to his mission.

In this thrilling adventure, players will journey through six modernized classic tales, each reimagined with unexpected twists. From snow-capped mountains and a dreary medieval prison to the confines of a space-traveling vessel, players will experience diverse environments in the pursuit of illustrious artifacts like the Potion of Immortality, the legendary sword Excalibur, and Thor’s mighty hammer.

Engage in turn-based battles, evade the relentless writer’s police, and face down a variety of story-born villains using the dwindling powers of Quist’s writing abilities. Scavenge for items to replenish your source of power – ink – and manipulate objects within the narrative world. In this quest, every book offers a new setting and a new world of possibilities.

This page-turning journey is filled with a colorful cast of characters, including a peculiar caged page, an entity taken from an unknown book, who accompanies Quist on his adventure. Use crafted items and tools to aid in progressing the story and solving mind-bending puzzles that blur the lines between fiction and reality. Unravel the mystery behind the thief’s selection for this unique job and the man he truly is.

Co-founder of DO MY BEST, Oleg Sergeev, expresses his excitement for the game’s unique concept: “We created The Bookwalker: Thief of Tales to offer a special narrative experience that explores the question of character agency in fictional worlds. Its gameplay was crafted to give readers a deep immersion into every atmosphere with its impassioned narrative and dialogues.”

ABOUT THIS GAME

Steal legendary artifacts to regain your freedom

Etienne Quist, a once-acclaimed writer, loses his ability to write after he is found guilty of an unspeakable crime. In an attempt to reclaim his lost status, he is approached by a criminal boss with a cunning offer. All he needs to do is locate and steal a series of legendary items from books. Delve into remarkable book worlds, each with its unique rules and challenges. Should anyone stand between you and the artifacts, be prepared to persuade, deceive, or even engage them in combat.

Explore different books and reshape their stories

Each quest thrusts you into an entirely new world: medieval prison, snow-capped mountain, futuristic spaceship and more. Meet the inhabitants of each book and use them to achieve your goals — after all, they are not really alive… or are they? In your quest, you will not be alone, as your paths cross with a sentient caged page, whom you adopt as your partner-in-crime and trusted advisor.

Solve unconventional puzzles across fiction and reality

Test your ingenuity with unique puzzles that encourage thinking outside the box, as you freely travel between fiction and reality, gathering valuable items to overcome obstacles. Using the mystical power of ink, you can manipulate objects within the books, adding depth to your interactions and unlocking new paths to explore.
