Today’s deal is Epistory - Typing Chronicles!

Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/398850/Epistory__Typing_Chronicles/

Description:

A TRULY GOOD IDEA

For some writers, inspiration comes easily. These writers are assholes. It’d be like a chef who could just say whatever food they wanted to cook, and instead of cooking it, a boy on a bike comes by within thirty seconds to hand it to you and tell you “I know I brought it here, but somehow, you cooked it anyway.” And then you open the bag and it’s some crazy dish out of Chef’s Table (which, we know this isn’t related, and we’re in no way sponsored by Netflix, but that’s a super tight show).

For other, normal writers (like me, the guy who writes these descriptions every single day), it’s almost embarrassing how long it takes them to find something they wanna say, to the point that sometimes people don’t even think it’s a real part of the job, and they actually have to fight just to convince them that it is, which why when someone truly stumbles upon a muse, aka a seemingly endless font of confident great ideas, you gotta just let it take for the ride it’s gonna take you on, lest you dilute pure righteous communication from the realm of ideas, and lose your inspiration altogether.

Today, however, for just seven buckaroonies, Epistory is a pretty unique typing-based action/adventure game where you actually play AS the muse, riding atop a three-tailed fox, to bring inspiration to the creator of a beautiful origami storybook land, and fighting against the crazy bugs that live there, solving puzzles, collecting items that fill in more pages of the book, and fighting the bug race that have found their way inside.

And by the way, we know this is a little much for a good analogy, but it makes the most ridiculed part of writing seem totally badass and beautiful, so we hope you’ll give it a shot, especially since we’re the kings of offering it at a low low price. Have fun! Hope you finally get to finish that novel!

Disclaimer: I HATE TYPING!!! Because I have arthritis in my hands.

However, this a stunning, beautiful, gorgeous game, It has an interesting story and it is fun. I didn’t hate the typing too much because It was enjoyable. Read the reviews on Steam. I am not a reviewer.

Did I say it is Gorgeous? Well. It. Is. Gorgeous!

Great pick. Finished it recently, would definitely recommend to other members of the community.

This reminds me a bit of typing of the dead overkill. Is it anything like it (apart from the setting ofc)


#5

As I actually am trying to kill a 12-year old writer’s block, the first two and last sentences of the summary were enough for me to grab it. Excited to try it out and hoping for the best.

As someone who already owns this game, it’s a solid title. Great artistic style, easy-to-grasp controls. I type about 98 WPM on average and make a decent amount of mistakes, and this game still had the right amount of challenge to put pressure on me while still being enjoyable.

If you enjoy typing and wanna work on your skills while picking up a new game, I’d recommend getting Epistory.
