Book lovers everywhere know that a well-designed video game can add a new layer to their favorite story.

For instance, if you like reading about history, I’m sure you would love to play a game with historic elements like Medal of Honor, or if you enjoy reading stories about Greek mythology, you would also enjoy a game like God of War.

So, even though it may seem a bit anticlimactic, bookish people should not stay away from the colorful world of video games. In fact, we even came up with a few cool games to try if you’re just dipping your toe in this universe and don’t know where to start.

Have a look and let us know which one is the most appealing to you.

Forge Of Empires

Let’s start with an easy one. Forge Of Empires is an online strategy browser game that lets you build a civilization and move through different eras in time. Your civilization will move from the stone age to modern times and will flourish into a powerful empire.

To develop and advance, your people will have to take care of trade, learn how to build better structures, and improve their overall living conditions. However, you’ll also have to research new technologies and fight off invaders. You’ll need to develop weapons, create armies, and design fortifications.

Since it is an online game, you can trade goods and weapons with other players to earn money which can then be invested in your development.

Lastly, the game is supported by a strong online community where you can meet like minded people, discuss interests, and make new friends. Overall, it’s the ideal game for players who love reading adventure stories from times long gone!

The Last of Us

For those book lovers who enjoy a good zombie story, The Last of Us comes with a fantastic adaptation of this trope. The images, action, and overall design make everything both beautiful and terrifying, and you’ll get to enjoy a new level of storytelling.

The game places you in a post-apocalyptic world, where the main character (Joel) needs to navigate a zombie-filled land and protect his partner in the story – a girl named Ellie. Overall, this is a story about survival, the human condition, and the desperation of living in a world where nothing can be bright again.

Still, keep in mind that this is an adventure with plenty of scares and lots of tension. So if you like milder things, you may want to skip this one. 

Stickman Hook

For those of you who like a light story and don’t want to get too invested in a new adventure, Stickman Hook may be the right start. The game mechanics are simple enough since all you need to do is swing a stickman from a hook and move him across the board to the finish line.

Sounds easy enough, right? Well, if you’ve read the story of Tarzan or watched the movie, you know it’s a lot more difficult than this! If you want your stickman to live and reach the end, you need to account for the angle of the hook and gravity.

The good news is that you don’t have time to get used to the gameplay as each level comes with new challenges. And, as you move up the levels, you’ll notice the level of difficulty increases up to the point where you really need to focus to get stickman safe and sound to the finish line.

Still, even if you may not reach the end of the game, you should try it out and have some fun with the colors and overall joyful gameplay! It is a wonderful chance to relax and have a different kind of adventure.
