September 30

Time flies

Today marks the 1 year anniversary of the Epistory Early Access release. We’ll keep it simple this time. With a bigger event coming for the “real” release anniversary in 2017. Development has obviously slowed down in favor of other projects but we still reserve some time each week to provide new features and browse the forums.

In recent news, you may have seen/tested the upcoming Japanese version (available in beta here). That means there will be at least one more big update in the future, with an array of minor bugfixes.

To celebrate, if you post a comment on this news you'll enter a raffle to win an Epistory t-shirt. 5 winners picked randomly. You have 1 week to enter.

Super bonus: We asked the whole studio to wear it! Have an awesome week end!

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
