Overall, the length of the game felt appropriate, and although the story falls a little flat, it does come together much better in the last Desert area.
All of this is wrapped up in a beautiful papercraft aesthetic, with new areas of the world unfolding and building up like an origami diorama. The adventure is narrated as the script is written directly on the environment, with two threads of narrative that come together in the end.
Epistory - Typing Chronicles's strength isn't in what it does. Typing games have been around forever. Origami? Who even knows. It's not what it does, but how it does it. Which, in a word, is "flawlessly". It may not be a perfect game in the traditional sense, but as a personal experience that offers valuable insights into the writing process, it's damn close.
