Since time immemorial the Archivists have studied and cataloged the mysteries of the planet, observing its changes and holding to our vow of neutrality. Yet from the Ancestral Forest to the Blue Desert, the world is suffering. The Tree of Life sings the Final Song and we can feel it in our flesh: the world is dying. We bear witness, but we cannot interfere. We contemplate in silence.

Nanotale - Typing Chronicles is an atmospheric typing adventure RPG set in a colorful vibrant world. Follow Rosalind, a novice Archivist, as she journeys out into a valley to collect plant and rock samples for further analysis. The valley is peaceful. War is a thing of the distant past. Nothing can go wrong with such a casual task... can it?


  • Explore a vibrant 3D fantasy world: play as the Archivist Rosalind on her journey to the very edges of the planet.
  • More than just typing: Talk to other characters, solve mysterious puzzles, unleash magic powers and defeat enemies in epic magical fights
  • Everything with keyboard: from movements, combats to even menus, control everything with a keyboard
  • Play in your own language: game texts are localized in English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Polish with voice-overs in English.
  • The game supports several keyboard layouts (QWERTY, QWERTZ, AZERTY, BEPO, Dvorak, Workman and Colemak)
  • More features to be announced

Last week we worked on the 3D version of the Art Style. Starting from our 2D concepts to something close to what you will have in game. Do you like it?

Character Design

Here are some researches for Rosalind. Especially regarding the color of her outfit. We choose the plum one because it's the most visible in the game.

The screenshot below gives you an idea of how big the enemies will be compared to you.

Mechanic Show Off!

In the prototype below, the ice spell changes water into an ice block. And the heat spell melts the ice block (and the strange particles are water vapor).


We don't know if we will keep it in game but our concept artist was probably high when she created that Peacock Tree :epihappy:

Thank you for reading! Visit the steam page below to know more and wishlist the game :)
