Epistory takes some interesting chances and sets out to make a decidedly different game than anything we’ve experienced over the last few decades. Those who’ve been yearning for a new typing game may find enough to justify a $12.99 purchase, but Epistory is unlikely to convert any new fans of the genre.
Despite the intense final battles, each level is nothing but a gift to its players
Epistory is an unexpected indie gem.
Epistory - Typing Chronicles seriously surprised me. This game takes elements from other games and puts them together in fantastic ways. I was constantly impressed with what the game threw at me, and it left me wanting more when I was done.
Maybe the most enjoyable typing game ever, but it’s clichéd story elements hold it back.
The game gets lost in metonymy, the act of substituting a label for something of a real substance or meaning.
Epistory is a zelda-like adventure in a universe made of paper and words. It has its own style (even if it can't compete with the fascinating inventions of Tearaway), and elegantly mixes combat and exploration. Is a short and compelling experience, but it would have been nice to see more variety in the structure of the dungeons.

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.
