The Bookwalker is an original adventure game in which we play as a character who travels between physical reality and the worlds described in books. Game was developed by independent studio Do My Best and was published by tinyBuild.


The main character of The Bookwalker is a writer suffering from lack of creative energy. In order to regain the will to work and start writing again, the protagonist must use his supernatural ability, which allows him to visit the worlds described in the books and steal items appearing in them.


The gameplay in The Bookwalker is based on two pillars. First of them are the visits in physical reality, during which we observe the action from a first person perspective (FPP). During them we freely explore the protagonist's apartment and look for items that may prove useful during his escapades. The second segment of the game are visits to the fantastic worlds described in the works, during which we watch the events from an isometric view.

We can visit, among others, gloomy dungeons, an abandoned city and the wreck of a spaceship. In each of these places we have to find a particular famous item, like Excalibur or Mjolnir (Thor's hammer). To get them, we have to talk with the characters and solve various puzzles. The latter requires from us perceptiveness and ingenuity, which comes in handy, among other things, when we have to skillfully use everyday items; for example, a fire extinguisher can put out a fire raging in a mansion, while a crowbar can be used to open a locked door.
