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

Hark, stranger. Be still a moment. Listen to the sounds… Do you hear them, far off in the deep?


We are proud to finally be able to announce the development of our new typing game, Nanotale - Typing Chronicles, the spiritual successor to 2016’s acclaimed indie title Epistory - Typing Chronicles.

Something is wrong with the heart of magic. Play a young archivist venturing out into a dying world, cataloging its mysteries and its wonders to unearth the truth.

Nanotale - Typing Chronicles is an atmospheric typing adventure RPG set in a colorful vibrant world that blooms to life under the words of Greg Buchanan [www.gregbuchanan.co.uk]. Developed by Fishing Cactus Games with the same core team as Epistory - Typing Chronicles, we can’t wait to share the adventure!

Weekly Updates

Today is the opening of our Steam page, and with it, the beginning of us being able to talk about the project. To make sure that communication between players and devs flows perfectly, we will post weekly updates about the game on the following channels:

Nanotale Steampage
Twitter
Facebook [www.facebook.com]
Discord [discord.gg]

Streaming! Streaming everywhere!

As part of how we plan to communicate with you, we are also planning to frequently stream the game to show you its evolution live and to chat with you at the same time. We’ll give you our Stream schedule soon to make sure you don’t miss any of them. Before that, it would be great if you could let us know your timezone in the comments section if you are interested!.

The first stream session will be a Q/A with the devs taking place next week (DTBD) on Twitch and Steam. Come with all your questions about Nanotale - Typing Chronicles.

Your voice is important

Many of you participated in our survey last year about those features you loved in Epistory and how you would like to see these features in our next title.

That survey has been used as a solid base when brainstorming about the Nanotale - Typing Chronicles. It helped us to capture the DNA, the essence of Epistory, to create a new game that we hope will please the community. Sometimes decisions have to be taken. Some are harder than others, but we will count on you to continue to enlighten us about what you think of Nanotale - Typing Chronicles. We want you to take part in this incredible new typing adventure with us!

Leave us your thoughts in a comment and don’t hesitate to spread the news all around you!

Thank you!

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.)
