Weekly Recap #7: Rosalind's new shape and NPCs

Hi Fox Riders,

Following your feedback, we modified a little bit the shape of Rosalind. The new shape will also facilitate the creation of a low poly 3D version.

Here's a work in progress sculpt of Rosalind based on the new shape.

We did some color tests for the NPCs from the Ancestral Forest. A lot of you voted on Twitter, Facebook and Discord for the white, and the blue/green outfits.

So, we decided to keep both of them and create different kind of outfits for the NPCs.

A bit of work has also been done on a 3D modeling and color test for the RATS! How would you feel in front of an army of these running after you in the Ancestral Forest?

We would like to create a nice t-shirt to wear at PAX East and EGX Rezzed. These t-shirts will also be used for contest and giveaways :epiwink:

So, my question is: what would you like to see on it? Be creative and tell us what you'd like to wear. The girl, the Fox, a landscape, anything else?

Thank you for reading.

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)
