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

On your mods!

On your mods!


With the integration of the Steam Workshop, Valve has opened modding to all its users. Different games utilize the Workshop in different ways. So, like many others such as Team Fortress 2, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, CS GO and the shiny new Planet Coaster, we decided to find our own manner to use it.

The first thing you think about modding is new items or maybe new skin. Allowing that in Epistory would have been, well, complicated. Instead, we let the players the possibility to make their very own game experience with words of their choice. They can also translate the game in their own language and add support for new and/or crazy keyboard layouts.

Our modding is enabled for all non-programmed elements - meaning anyone with Excel can join the fun! It should also work with OpenOffice Calc (but this hasn't been tested).

To give you an idea of what you can do, here are some clever idea created by the community, to use the mods.

British English dictionary

Use the British English dictionary to type "favourite" instead of "favorite".

pirates slang dictionary

Play new dictionaries such as Pirate Slang or L33t.

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.)
