If you want to "play" a game, you'll want to give this a miss. If you relish a thoughtful, insightful experience with some entertaining (and possibly instructional for budding stenographers) gameplay attached, you'll want to see what Epistory - Typing Chronicles has to offer.

Epistory: Typing Chronicles potrebbe essere definito come uno dei typing game più belli mai creati ma molto probabilmente si tratterebbe di una definizione troppo limitante. L'opera di Fishing Cactus è un gioco che non è in grado di attirare tutte le tipologie di giocatori e che avrebbe potuto proporre una trama molto più interessante, ma a conti fatti anche coloro che non hanno mai amato questa tipologia di giochi potrebbero rimanere affascinati da un mondo tutto da scoprire e da non sottovalutare, forte di uno stile curatissimo e di un gameplay molto più vario e coinvolgente di quanto ci si potrebbe aspettare.

Epistory: Typing Chronicles is a gorgeous, engaging, flawed experience. Exploring its colour-soaked world, and interacting with it by hammering out words on a keyboard is immensely pleasurable – perhaps the most pleasurable it’s been in such a narrow genre. The clichéd story elements that it relies on, however, undermines its taut mechanics, and also spoil whatever broader metaphors the game successfully explores.

Outside of the Typing of the Dead series, it’s not exactly easy for me to recall titles that have tried to mesh typing precision with inventive mechanics. That Epistory has succeeded in structuring a tactical, sometimes tense, battle challenge around the accurate spelling of words is quite an achievement; and the realm of paper-craft and letters is the ideal picture-book binding for this elegant system. The fairy-tale narration can veer towards over-wrought attempts at empowerment, and there are a few lingering issues around control inputs and a faltering difficulty curve, but Epistory comfortably establishes itself as a pretty magical way to give your typing fingers an adventurous workout.

I enjoyed my time with Epistory but I can certainly see why some players may not enjoy this title. It’s a fairly slow-paced game that requires practice and patience. The controls feel a bit clumsy and switching modes with the spacebar needs refining. The world design is the strongest and most interesting feature of the game and I loved exploring the beautiful landscapes. I would only recommend this game if you want to explore a gorgeous world with gameplay that offers something a bit different. Don’t expect heavy action or fast paced gameplay, but if you want to improve your timing and typing skills then this might be for you.
