From Press Release:
SEATTLE — June 22, 2023 — The Bookwalker: Thief of Tales, a gripping narrative adventure from DO MY BEST (the creators of the indie hit The Final Station) and publisher tinyBuild, stands on the edge of fiction and reality on PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and Xbox Game Pass today.
Traverse between realms as Etienne Quist, a writer-turned-thief with the ability to travel through fiction and reality. Aim to shorten Quist’s writer’s block sentencing and reclaim his previously revered status after a criminal boss makes him an offer: steal legendary artifacts found only in books.
Enter the world of six popular tales, all modernized and with unexpected twists, to trek across snow-covered mountains, sneak through a gloomy medieval prison, and go into orbit on a space-traveling vessel to procure the artifacts. Come across many treasures such as the bubbling Potion of Immortality, the shining Excalibur, and the all-powerful hammer once only wielded by Thor.
Evade the writer’s police in turn-based battles and fight fellow storied villains like shape shifting entities, or the undead using the last drops of your writers abilities. Scavenge for items to replenish ink, a bookwalker’s source of power to defeat foes and manipulate objects within the books.
Meet a cast of eccentric characters on this page-turning adventure. Keep an unlikely companion along for the journey: a curious and mysterious caged page taken away from an unknown book. Craft items and tools and use each instrument to aid the story’s progression and solve puzzles between reality and fiction. Stick through tales and words to uncover the man behind the thefts and why Quiest’s was chosen for the job..
