Spring-cleaning! We updated Nanotale's Steampage.



Hey Fox Riders,

A fresh air of Spring blows on Fishing Cactus. Yesterday, we updated Nanotale's Steampage with new banners, screenshots and gifs of the game.

Basically, what you see here, is the fire spell used to burn enemies and combined with the "LARGE" shape to melt the ice.

We are back from PAX East and EGX

Hi Fox Riders,

I hope you are all doing great and did not miss us too much while we were at PAX East and EGX Rezzed.

The two conventions went great for Nanotale! When the first player sat on our booth at PAX East to try the game, we felt really stressed, not knowing if he would enjoy it. That stress was at its climax when we met a returning player from Epistory. The thing is that both new and returning players loved it very much. They were really happy with the new RPG direction of the game and so with the art style.



Here's the stream we did with Rockpaper Shotgun during EGX Rezzed. Hope you will like what you see.

And here's what the press said about it so far:

Nanotale: Typing Chronicles is easily one of the year’s more intriguing concepts when it comes to the link between the player put before the screen and the action that unravels on it.

EGX Rezzed 2019: The best games from this year's show. Nanotale is perhaps best quickly described as Magicka meets Typing of the Dead.

The developers have actually tackled this genre before in Epistory, but something about Nanotale: Typing Chronicles particularly grabbed me.
Read full article here.
















While the four of us were at the convention, other people from the team stood at the studio and continued to work on the game. They also had the chance to experience the "Mini Fox Bug".







BONUS

More Green Jasper! Funny thing is that we saw people during convention running away from the Green Jasper while playing the demo because they were afraid of it :episweat:




Thank you for reading! I hope this wasn't too long.

Don't hesitate to follow and wishlist Nanotale on Steam for more news about the game!

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)
