Epistory – Typing Chronicles

A typing RPG/adventure game. I enjoyed it a lot, but it is hard for a foreigner. Most of the achievements are doable, for the other achievements, there is a workshop mod to help out. Around 12h to 100%



Approximate amount of time to 100%: 12h
Estimated achievement difficulty: without steam workshop 7/10, with steam workshop 4/10 – The steam workshop only works for windows in this game!
Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1
Is there a good guide available: yes, here
Multiplayer achievements: No
Missable achievements: No
Grinding Achievements: Yes, the one where you have to kill 10k enemies
DLC-Only achievements: No
Time-gated achievements: No
RNG-achievements: No
Does difficulty affect achievements: No
Unobtainable/glitched achievements: No

This is a fun rpg/adventure game in which you do most of the actions by typing. You’re playing a girl who is riding a fox and will explore the world. How further you get into the game, the more abilities you get, which will open new paths to other dungeons. You level up by typing words to kill monsters or to destroy items. When you level you get skill points to add to skills. One of the most useful skills for achievement hunters is the ability ” knowledge” because it will show the treasure chests and nests on your map, both you need for achievements. If you get it early and keep an eye on the map for those 2 then you don’t have to go back to earlier dungeons for the 100%

Speaking about achievements, there are 3 types of achievements in this game:
– Story-related achievements
– Completionist achievements, get all treasures, kill all nests, get all the upgrades
– Combat/typing related achievements

The nests gave me a hard time, because I type with 2 fingers and English is not my native language, which made it harder to type some of those long words. The achievements for typing really fast or making no mistakes for 1000 characters are a hell for me without the steam workshop mod. So for the last 3 nests and most of those type fast, kill 100k monsters I used the Aaa mod that is suggested in the guide linked above. The 100k monsters is a real grind. When I finished the game including getting 100% in the campaign I killed under 5k monsters, so I had to grind the other 50%, but the Aaa mod made it very doable.

+ Fun and different style of gameplay than most games in this genre
+ Beautiful artwork
– Grindy and very hard achievements without a mod
