Genres: Interactive Story, Adventure

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.

It takes about six hours to get through the campaign, but it's engaging throughout. Each dungeon adds a new twist to the exploration, and each new piece of typing magic increases the complexity of the combat. The base mechanic may conjure up thoughts of Mavis Beacon, but so much has been built onto that foundation, making Epistory - Typing Chronicles so much greater than just a typing game.

An original and very well developed idea gives birth to a fascinating, entertaining and quite challenging adventure.

Epistory doesn't try to do too much, instead focusing on perfect execution of what it does. The world is gorgeously crafted around you as the narrator lulls you into contentment, but the creeping insect enemies will keep you moving and actively entertained.

While “one of the most inventive typing games out there” is a summary in danger of being mistaken for faint praise, Epistory’s wonderful, paper-craft design and smart, word-based battle system combine to make it exactly that.

8 / 10.0
I absolutely love typing games. Why? Because it's a skill everyone needs to learn and it's a unique way to play a game that you can only do on PC. I remember Mario Typing Tutor back in the '90s and various programs on the Apple II and original iMac back in the early '90s in school. Then there was Typing of the Dead and Typing of the Dead: Overkill. These games were so much
