New video and a Stream with the devs tomorrow!

Hi Fox Riders,

We created a video highlighting some thoughts from the community about Epistory. It's quite long but, we had so many... and we couldn't even put all of them in it. So, we apologize for the 3 minutes long video :) Hope you will like it!

https://youtu.be/RN7p09vIpqs

Tomorrow, Saturday 6pm CEST / 9am PDT / 12pm EDT), we'd like to stream the game on Steam and Twitch, and try to create a new in-game story with people from the chat. Feel free to join us!

Also, the game will be 67% OFF on Steam during the whole weekend. Don't hesitate to spread the word about it.

Thank you!

May the Fox be with you! :epicool:

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
