The name of this game is Tales. Yep, that’s it. Just Tales.

You are Alfred. You think you’ve found a low-stress, comfortable job as custodian of an ancient, private library. Just dust off books and take naps. What could be easier, right?

Wrong. You don’t exactly follow instructions and accidentally free Oblivion, a demonic destroyer of all stories everywhere. Well, now you’ve done it.

As a result, you’ll be obliged to defeat Oblivion by traveling from book to book in search of legendary characters who can help you correct your terrible blunder. Otherwise, every tale ever written will be lost forever, and it will all be your fault!

Tales, from indie developer Ape Marina, will be released on PC at a date TBD.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
