Indie developer Fishing Cactus announced that the next installment in the award-winning Typing Chronicles franchise, Nanotale, is available on Steam Early Access (Windows) for $14.99 / €14.99/ £11.99. Wielding a keyboard as the only tool in their arsenal, players wander through the fantasy world of Nanotale casting powerful spells to manipulate the environment and destroy enemies, in an experience where vigilance and finger dexterity are the key to success.
“We are happy to release Nanotale on Steam Early Access and can’t wait to hear what players think,” said Bruno Urbain, CEO of Fishing Cactus. “Combining adventure and action RPG elements, Nanotale brings a fresh take on typing games, which we hope fans of the genre will appreciate.”
Nanotale tells a fascinating story of a world on the brink of destruction, as the last remnants of magic are dying out. Players take on the role of novice Archivist, Rosalind, who sets out on a journey to the magical valley to collect plant and rock samples as well as catalog mysterious occurrences, in an attempt to unravel the secrets surrounding the looming demise of their world.
Nanotale delivers a blend of typing adventure and RPG experience as players meet and interact with other characters, solve various puzzles and unleash magical powers to defeat foes. The game draws players in with its unique game mechanics as everything from movement to combat, even to menu controls, is accomplished using solely a keyboard, thus challenging players to sharpen their typing skills throughout the game. The Steam Early Access build is translated into English, with French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese versions coming soon after. Nanotale is slated for commercial release in 2020.
