Epistory is available in Chinese!

Hi Fox Riders,

We are glad to announce that Epistory is available in Chinese and now officially supports 10 languages! A total of 14 with the translations made by the community on Steam Workshop.

We were supposed to publish the update for the 1st Anniversary of the game, but due to a slight hitch, it has been delayed until today.

This will probably be the last major update for Epistory - Typing Chronicles to give us more time to focus on our other games in production. Don't worry; it's not a goodbye at all. We'll always be on the Steam forum and Discuss to help you and answer your questions. Speaking of feedback, we are thinking of a DLC and would like to know what you think of the idea.

Thank you very much for these nearly two years of support.

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!

“a really sweet, superbly atmospheric action RPG where all the controls are on your keyboard.”

“I loved every frustrating moment.”

“Epistory – Typing Chronicles is differentiating itself with regards to gameplay mechanics and visuals.”

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.


  • 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)
