Vienna-based publisher Nordic Games today revealed their lineup for Gamescom 2014- showcasing three exciting upcoming titles including KING Art’s long-awaited adventure The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, The Austronauts’ dark mystery The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, and Rainbow Studios’ muddy Motocross simulation MX vs. ATV.

Here’s a look at Nordic Games’ stable of titles you’ll be able to see at Gamescom 2014.

For fans of classic adventures, the developers at KING Art will be presenting their new masterpiece, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2. The Critter, Wilbur, Princess Ivo and Nate return to Aventásia and once again head out on tricky and amusing adventures. Following their successful Kickstarter campaign, KING Art are bringing lots of new features to the game, including side quests and unlockable character outfits, the likes of which have never been seen in an adventure game before.


For those enjoying a walk on the dark and mysterious side, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is bound to exceed these expectations. Developers The Astronauts, known for their previous work at People Can Fly, are currently creating a riveting thriller about the disappearance of the boy Ethan. Players shed light upon events in the role of a detective with supernatural abilities. Technically, the adventure is a graphical feast, thanks to the use of the Unreal Engine 3, serving primarily to draw players even deeper into the story. And by the way, the developers recommend playing the game alone… in the dark… with headphones. Goosebumps guaranteed!

MX vs. ATV brings the fascination of Motocross to life. Across 17 technically demanding racetracks, players take part in exciting duels against AI racers, modelled on the stars, or compete in the 12-player online multiplayer or with a partner at home in split-screen mode. A range of original vehicles, complete with faithfully replicated accessories, are available in their well-known designs, while also completely customisable to the players’ wishes. With a smart 2-stick control system, players not only complete their laps, but also perform breath-taking stunts in daredevil manoeuvres. Pure adrenaline!

Frank has been the caffeine-fueled evil overlord of HeyPoorPlayer since 2008. He speaks loudly and carries a big stick to keep the staff of the HPP madhouse in check. A collector of all things that blip and beep, he has an extensive collection of retro consoles and arcade machines crammed into his house. Currently playing: Chorus (XSX), Battlefield 2042 (XSX), Xeno Crisis (Neo Geo)
