What is it all about
Epistory is a fantasy action-adventure tale in which a girl explores a charming origami world, fending off fearsome monsters threatening to corrupt it. Unlike your typical adventure game, Epistory’s characters are controlled by typing words on the keyboard. Typing is magic in the game’s universe: it enables players to transform scenery and defeat enemies.
With the help of a friendly narrator, the game offers an atmospheric, gripping storyline with challenging puzzles. Its adaptive difficulty and support for a number of different keyboard layouts ensure that it is the best possible choice for improving typing skills.
Epistory is brilliantly suited for a range of age groups and learning outcomes. Through its gameplay, it works to improve players’ typing skills and expand their vocabulary. Touch typing is the fastest and sometimes the only way to combat fast-moving enemies, which players may well figure out themselves.
Progressing in the story also requires strategic thinking and fast decision-making skills. The player can utilize different types of elemental magic against different kinds of enemies, and needs to learn to manage their time and priorities to survive.
