ABOUT

In a story where everything is untold, become the muse who unfolds a brand new adventure.

Epistory is an atmospheric adventure typing game for PC, Mac & Linux that tells the story of a writer lacking inspiration who asks her muse to help write his 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.

Check out our free demo for PC, Mac, Linux and get a chance to win a full steam key: Indiedb.com

WIN A KEY WITH THE DEMO?

We created a free demo of the game for those who are not yet convinced of the game potential. We promise you'll be hooked! And you know what? Complete the demo, choose wisely and try to win a Steam key unlocking the full game. Not everyone will win but only those who dare win!

And fear not, the demo is a bit different from the full game so if you liked the game, starting over in the full game will stay fresh.

Want to download the demo? Check out the download area here on IndieDB.

DRM FREE

We are currently rolling out the DRM free version of Epistory for both PC, Mac and Linux. It is already available on our website but also on a couple of other online stores.

GAMESCOM 2016

Last week we attended the Gamescom as part of the Indie Arena booth, we managed to meet tons of cool people (Armello, 11bits, TinyBuild and more) but even more tons of happy players on the game. We wanted to share a couple of pictures with you.

For those familiar with Japanese culture, the following might remind you of another very famous arcade cabinet from Typing of the Dead but this is Epistory arcade cabinet in action. So chic don't you think?

UPDATE ON STEAM!

Alongside the demo (also available on Steam), the demo comes with a small update on the game fixing several little bugs and now including the Czech language. During the whole Gamescom we had a discount on the game, if you missed it, we currently have a -35% discount on steam (for 24 hours only).

We also started populating the mod page on IndieDB as Epistory has now already 3 mods supported. The first one being a l33t mode changing the letters into numbers making the game extra challening.

Looks outstanding! :D I'm excited to watch the progress! A little bit Bastion, a little bit Okami, bits of its own. Should be a glorious game.

(Note: no voice on chapter titles. Reading it to yourself adds dramatic flair I think.)
