Happy Birthday Epistory!

Hello Fox Riders,

One year ago, with our hearts beating fast, we held our breath and released Epistory - Typing Chronicles on Steam. And, as promised, we’ve planned some surprises to thank you for all the love and support during the development and even now that the game is fully released . It’s always a pleasure to read your comments on the forums and answer them. Keep going guys!



Let’s kickoff the celebration with a 50% discount. Moreover we plan to run some giveaways on Twitter and Facebook during the whole week to make you win Steam keys and the fantastic anniversary t-shirt that the development team wears on the picture below.



But wait! There’s more! Join us for a live stream with the team on the 30th of March 8:30 am PDT ( 5:30 pm GMT+2) on Twitch. We’ll play Epistory and answer all your questions. Meanwhile, you can chat with us everyday on our recently created Discord Channel.

If you want even more insight, we published an article about the whole development of Epistory. You can even play the first prototype of the game!

One more gift, for those of you who’d enjoy reminiscing about the story of the game, we published its full script, written by our dear Joseph J Clark with the illustrations of Amandine Flahaut.

This year has been a great year. Thank you. Now it’s time to move on something else. We’d like to announce that we started development on a new game called Shift Quantum.


Thank you!

Do you hear what I hear? New update!

Hi Reindeer Riders,

We wanted to give you something special for Christmas. Of course, for those of you who don't own the game yet, the best present will be the discount during the Winter Sales. But for the others, we chose something that sounds less like buying and more like sharing.

You’ve probably noticed that our main menu has a kind of Christmas feeling, so has one of our Arenas. But the major update for this holiday season is the Japanese language fully implemented in the game. As usual, don’t hesitate to tell us if you find typos or weird translations.



Also, IndieDB will announce the Indie of the Year in 5 days. Epistory has the chance to be part of top 100. Don’t hesitate to vote for us if you feel like the game should win. We’ll add that there’s no need to be logged to vote.




To finish, every year for Christmas, we run a 48h internal Game Jam and this year we wanted to share the crazy and unfinished projects from previous years with our community. You can find and download the games here.


Have a wonderful Holiday Season!

About This Game



Epistory is an atmospheric adventure typing game that tells the story of a writer lacking inspiration who asks her muse to help write her latest book.

In Epistory you play the muse, a fictional character in a world where everything is untold. Your adventure begins on a blank page, but the world will soon become larger and livelier as you gather inspiration, solve its mysteries and defeat its enemies. From movement to opening chests and fighting in epic battles, every element in the game is controlled exclusively with the keyboard.

As you progress and explore the fantasy origami world, the story literally unfolds in the writer’s mind and the mysteries of the magic power of the words are revealed.

Features


  • Explore a beautiful paper craft world: play as the muse riding a giant three tailed fox, lost in a fantasy 3D world
  • More than just typing: solve mysterious puzzles, unlock magic powers and defeat enemies in adrenaline pumping epic combats
  • A writer’s block? Collect fragments and inspirations points to unfold the story as you explore the origami world in the writer’s head. But there is more to the story than meets the eye…
  • All in keyboard: from movements, combats to even menus, control everything with a keyboard
  • Adaptive difficulty: if your hands fly around the keyboard or if you are a slow typist, the game features a dynamic difficulty system that evolves to fit each players’ skill set
  • Competitive Arena Mode: challenge other players for the top spot in the arena leaderboards
  • Play in your own language: game texts are localized in English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Polish with voice overs in English. The game supports several keyboard layouts (QWERTY, QWERTZ, AZERTY, BEPO, Dvorak, Workman and Colemak)
