Now on Steam

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

Epistory is an atmospheric adventure typing game 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.


  • Play as the muse riding a giant three tailed fox, lost in a fantasy 3D world
  • Solve mysterious puzzles and defeat enemies in epic combat
  • Unfold the story as you explore the origami world in the writer’s head
  • Discover all words you type have a deeper meaning and might influence the outcome of the story
  • Control everything with a keyboard in this one of its kind typing game (English, French, German and Dvorak keyboards supported)
  • Dynamic difficulty that evolves to fit each players’ skill set
  • Challenge other players for the top spot in the arena leaderboards

Major Update

News 0 comments

Capsule 616x353
After weeks of hard work, we present to you the new and shinier version of Epistory. You spoke and we listened. We understand it would have been better for most of you to receive the update in chunks over the weeks but given the amount of changes it was a lot easier for us to handle one big transition to the new version instead of several small incremental versions. We even had to stop planning for a workshop beta.
Without further ado, here’s the changelist:


  • Mod support.
  • Profiles (multiple saves) support.
  • Steam Cloud support.
  • Distinction between gameplay and story language.
  • Splash screen only when the game launches.
  • Removed mouse cursor during gameplay.
  • Improved arena wave randomness.
  • Single letter words always get typed, even in the middle of another word.
  • Several small improvements for the map.
  • (slightly) Improved performance, (massively) reduced spikes.
  • V-Sync option.
  • Custom mouse cursor.


  • Several sound errors. Please let us know if you still encounter any problems.
  • Game not loading on Linux when the OS is not set to English locale.
  • Several small bugs for the map.
  • Several small errors in the story texts.
  • Several keyboard specific patterns.
  • Music/effects volume preference not always respected.
  • Entering the “Ice Mausoleum” door without triggering the scene change.

And of course several small improvements/fixes across the board that would be too long to list. As always, we welcome your feedback and bug reports.

Epistory has a secret. Beneath the papery structures of its origami world, between the lines of fairy-tale narration which shape the player’s journey...

Wonderful idea and great graphics. Also brilliant choice on the voice actress. The overall impression is very harmonious. Really like it! Best luck on your way!

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.)

Still too early to tell about the chapter titles but we'll consider both.
