  • Forgive me, but I’m an absolute sucker for games that do things differently… in fact, I tend to seek them out. One of the least represented styles of games out there is the typing game genre. With the only truly memorable title I can recall in the space being Typing of the Dead (which needs to be on Switch, BTW), it’s simply a rarity out there. So when something like Epistory comes along with that style of play as the hook and then pairs it with a unique art style and a very pleasant fantasy story it’s almost a guarantee that I’ll be smitten.So, yeah, making sure you have the proper setup to play this could be a challenge. You’ll need to hook up a keyboard via the USB port in your dock and then, depending on the length of your cord and how your Switch is situated, there may be some challenges. If you can overcome that though, what awaits is just a taste of something different, and if you’re not pretty nimble typing you may find it’s a bit too tough for you when things get more intense. What strikes me as a bit odd is a criticism that the more you play the more many enemies and words will begin to repeat themselves… as if this isn’t a reality in all games of all types, and for some of the trickier things in the game’s vocabulary you’ll be wishing the well wasn’t quite so deep since things like more scientific terms you’re less likely to know on sight so they can be a challenge. For me the game is chock full of enchantment and is simply a breath of fresh air, so if you’re able to manage a way to get it set up in a way that playing it is viable I’m happy to recommend it.
