Play OverviewPlay Overview

Nanotale - Typing Chronicles (2019) is an adventure game where you type to progress through a magical planet on the brink of extinction. You play as Rosalind, a novice Archivist, on a journey to study and catalogue the mysteries of the dying planet. Your goal is to gather rock & plant samples for your experiments while avoiding the dangers of hostile animals. You can talk to local villagers, battle enemies and solve puzzles to learn more about what is going on.

Unusually, Nanotale's main interaction is typing. Apart from movement, you must pull out your field notebook and type sentences to fight, solve puzzles, or harvest samples. Words are related to the object you are typing about. For example; enemies will have words like darkness, fear, or bite while interactive elements like plants have words like cure, ocean, or enkindle. However, some of the word choices can seem a bit bizarre at times.

Nanotale is a new adventure from the Typing Chronicles franchise and the successor to Epistory - Typing Chronicles.
