About

Epistory - Typing Chronicles is an action-adventure with a heavy focus on a typing mechanics. This is the only game within the IP.

Gameplay

Every action in the game is tied with the typing words on the keyboard. Thus, the game cannot be ported onto consoles. Unlike the games similar to this genre, Typing Chronicles utilize every adventure-game mechanics to be adapted to typing words.
For example, enemies may not die from one hit, so there are several words above their heads. The meaning of the written information often corresponds to the situation on the screen.
Apart from battles, the protagonist may solve puzzles and explore the world.
The gameplay is the main attraction of the game — however, it turned its back on the players when it comes to the replayability. The title is monotonous with no gameplay sections without having to type the words.

Story

The plot tells a story of a poet who sent his muse into the world of unfinished tales to seek for ideas to the next story. The text of the ultimate masterpiece unravels, as Muse proceeds through the levels on her three-tailed fox, changing the environment around her. Somewhere in-between the levels, the semantic idea of interconnecting the meaning with the object faints a little, but the ending is set to explain this minor inconvenience.

Epistory - Typing Chronicles reviews and comments

Madness. An all-round successful Game. Can I recommend anyone who is vllt not too slow with Typing. The Graphic Style and Gameplay totally did it to me. The World is not too big, but it is not too small, so exploring is always a Pleasure. Some fight are already crisp, so you have to try a little with the Skills. The Way you experience the Story ... I don't know of a comparable Game. The first Time in a Game where I couldn't be slow enough and I found out for myself that I find it very difficult to experience the World in Peace and switch it off from all the everyday and consumption stress. Always Action, always fast fast. You just have to enjoy Epistory with a certain inner Calmness.

Early Access Review Falls any of you might find a brief Glimpse into the Game desirable ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_81QWNKjaQ&feature=youtu.be Epistory: Typing chronicles ... My current great Game love. And completely unexpected! Some of you may want to take the Game bored into the Corner, some of you will fare the way I do: You will be completely baff and, above all, one thing: Enchanted! This Game is about Words. About Creativity. To Adventure. To Fantasy. We are, as it were, stuck in the Mind of a Writer and control the Figures that occur in his Story. We are thus his "Promptings." As we move, the Landscape around us begins to live, and by diligently Typing Words, the Landscape becomes more and more magnificent. But it doesn't stay here-so that there is no Boredom, there are Opponents who require an enormously fast Typing and also to discover and collect some Treasures. The Points we get from Typing the Words, we can use to Skillen our Character. Even the Soundtrack is absolutely atmospheric and fits into the Game terribly. People who have Playfulness, Beauty, and no Problem with Words will love it!
