King Arts' point-and-click adventure, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, is out tomorrow and what better way to celebrate than with this jolly trailer?

The trailer features a song in the style of The Hobbit (complete with karaoke-style subtitles) making fun of free-to-play, microtransactions, and many other modern gaming conventions.

The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is an adventure game in the classic style. The game was successfully funded on Kickstarter last year.

It's out tomorrow on PC, Mac and Linux.
