Epistory: Typing Chronicles 4.2 5 42 42
Brilliant, different, FUN! Every so often a game comes along that completely breaks the mold and reminds us why we started playing computer games in the first place. Usually descriptions and screenshots of games like this don't really appeal, or make the game sound goofy or just weird, but then you play and suddenly an hour is gone like magic because you've been totally immersed in this amazing new world. These rare game gems find a way to challenge without frustrating, keep you thinking without making your brain hurt, and just make you happy. Oh my gosh, I LOVE it when developers take a chance and create something like this! Sure, this game probably won't be for everyone, but that's okay, because it will fit a niche for many that is lacking in the cookie-cutter hidden-object games we see cranked out every day. Honestly, don't read the description or the reviews, just download Epistory and give it a chance. You might be bored or frustrated, or you might find something wonderful, joy-filled, and completely fun. October 3, 2016
Epistory? I think you mean "Epic Story." (And gameplay. And graphics. And music.) REVIEW BASED ON full demo I CURRENTLY OWN 506 computer games (or will, as soon as I buy this one). PROLOGUE While we sometimes are lucky enough to see games that are innovative and unique in one area?either game design, gameplay mechanics, graphics, storyline, or sound design?it is a rarity to encounter a game that is innovative and unique in every single one of those areas. This one?s a classic. ONCE UPON A TIME ????? You?re a child of the forest, and you?ve spent your life nurturing the plants and animals, accompanied by your steed, an awesome triple-tailed red fox. One day, a fiery meteor falls from the sky, bringing with it a hostile insectile force that seeks to destroy the peace of the forest. It?s up to you to use your creativity and inspiration to defeat the enemies and save the denizens of the forest. PLAY THE GAME ????? The controls take some getting used to. While you can use the arrow keys to move, the game suggests you use the E, F, J, and I keys to better facilitate the typing you?ll need to do. And I second the suggestion, having tried it both ways. The world will unfold bit by bit around you. A voice narrates, and pertinent portions of the story are actually imprinted on the landscape. This isn?t merely an artistic affectation; it actually helps you navigate. Actions are taken by typing. You?ll need to regrow plants, eradicate obstacles, and defeat enemies. The words you must type appear above the areas that need attention, and they become gradually more complex as the game progresses. Additionally, there are puzzles to figure out to gain access to some areas of each level. For example, one requires that you navigate over a series of symbols in a particular order, but the clue you require is obscured. So you have to determine how to reveal the clue by interacting with the environment. Overall, the level of challenge ranges from medium to high, and the fun factor is phenomenal. SIGHTSEEING ????? The graphics completely blew me away. The world is displayed isometrically in a series of squares, and it develops before your eyes from pieces of newspaper that fold, twist, and crumple into the forms of the landscape, then gain color. At the beginning, you can choose the monitor resolution and graphics level. I choose the highest resolution and ?fantastic? graphics, and the detail was truly amazing. The animation was consistently smooth with a high frame rate. Everything was beautifully dimensional, as if you were using Google Maps in the ?bird?s eye view? format. Shadows, light, and textures were all stunning. SOUNDBOARD ????? The music is exactly the kind of ambient soundscape that I believe is the perfect backdrop for gaming. It?s alternately haunting, comforting, eerie, serene?and always zen. The only voiceover is the narrator, and her voice is beautifully warm and smooth, as well as appropriately emotive. Environmental sounds were awesome, and game sounds were arcade-like. Pew pew! TOOLBOX ????? The tab keys functions as your ?pause the game? button, as well as allowing you to access the map for the level you?re on, and showing you which upgrades you?re eligible for (and have already purchased with the in-game earned points system). Some of the upgrades include: ? an upgrade that moves the enemy you hit away from you ? an upgrade that allows you to type all words associated with a multiple-word enemy without having to wait for the first word to activate ? an upgrade that reveals things on the map ? an upgrade that speeds up the pace of your fox ?and much more. BUGS & BOTHERS No technical difficulties, lags, or annoyances with Mac OS 10.11.6. OOH! PIECE OF CANDY ????? Surprisingly, there are collectibles! I discovered two treasure chests that were really well-hidden and, when opened, revealed collectible fragments. Maybe there?s more candy? EPILOGUE - Overall Rating: (36 total ?) 6 = ????? In general, I?m not a fan of platform games for the computer (although I love them for game consoles). I also usually don?t care for the isometric design, because it?s difficult to get used to the controls since ?up? is no longer ?up.? However, Epistory is so original in all its elements, such a treat for the senses, and so much fun that I do highly recommend it. RECOMMENDED BY THIS DEV (???? or above, based on my rating at game?s release) Since this is a new dev, I have no other recommendations. I hope to see many more innovative, beautiful, and unique games from them in the future! Happy gaming, fishies! October 3, 2016
Wow. Just... WOW! Unless you're interested in learning how to write, new words for your vocabulary, and like to speed up your typing skills, this game isn't for you. Brilliantly made, amazing challenges, so UNIQUE! It's the Legend of Zelda, only with a girl and a fox instead of a guy with a horse. It's as educative as it's fun!! October 3, 2016
Fab, imaginative game This is a very creative and active game that does not require too much quickness when killing is required (which I hate typically). I never want this game to end! October 3, 2016
A different kind of word game Lovely story, with beautiful art. As a professional typist, I found the need to type actual words quickly to be a refreshing challenge. My only complaint would be the back-and-forth, and that newly-opened zones were not easily seen on the map. Likewise, I would have liked to be able to drag the map around, to see what might have become opened. Overall, I really enjoyed this game, and would love to see more like this! October 6, 2016
Great little gem When I saw the screen shots and description of this game I wasn't too impressed but decided to play the demo anyway. I'm so glad I did. The graphics are incredible and the game play addictive. Before I knew it the demo was over and I clicked buy because I had to know what happened next. The puzzles are not so easy but not frustrating either and you don't have to be a speed typist to defeat the enemies. I love that this is a one of a kind game. A refreshing change to the daily yawn fest, mundane HO games. October 5, 2016
Charming and Whimsical! I'd say, if you'd made it far enough to look at reviews you probably have enough interest in this game to enjoy it. I absolutely loved this game. I have never played anything like it before and thought it was incredibly well done. I hate to try to describe it because I can't seem to do it justice and inevitably make it sound uninteresting. It is an adventure game in which you battle monsters by typing words. You also solve puzzles to progress. The art is in the style of paper - since you are a writer searching for inspiration. October 11, 2016
A-Mazing Such a different approach, the storyline was pleasantly unique, the visual presentation was captivating. I just couldn't stop playing!! If you don't enjoy typing, this is not the game for you. October 8, 2016
Very different! Cool game. Music is good, have to spell words of longer lengths and at increasing speeds to save the heroine. It gets harder pretty early on. Not likely to buy the full game tho. I thought it got a bit tiring to keep up with the spelling. October 5, 2016
Interesting and Fun This is such an unusual game -- I'm not usually an "adventure game" type of person, but the combination of adventure and typing oddly makes this an addictive little game. I personally prefer using the mouse to navigate and the typing for all other action (which is required). The further in you get, the more challenging the typing part gets. I wasn't sold in the first five minutes or so, but the more I played it, the more I couldn't stop! October 4, 2016
