Wikipedia:

Epistory is a 2016 action-adventure, typing video game by Fishing Cactus. The game was released on Steam Early Access in September 2015 and was officially released on March 30, 2016, for Linux, Microsoft Windows, and OS X. In the game, a young girl rides a fox with three tails. The game's story follows a writer's writing process, which unfolds like paper on-screen and is narrated from the perspective of the writer's internal thoughts.

Development

Part of the challenge in making Epistory was to "feel like a game and not just a typing application". To that end, the developers emphasised player choice in gameplay design decisions. The game was developed in Unity, using the Tiled map editor. The use of Tiled made the ground tiles look artificial, so this was fixed using Shader Forge. The art design was influenced by another game project that Fishing Cactus was working on, with a World War I theme. Because the frame story of Epistory is about a writer, it seemed like a natural choice to have a paper-themed world. Later, the decision was made to take it into 3D and incorporate papercraft and origami designs. Epistory used random methods to populate levels with trees, which were then manually checked and edited by the designers before being saved as the level. Epistory was released on Steam Early Access on 30 September 2015. Mac and Linux editions of Epistory were released on Steam Early Access in October 2015. Chapter Two was released in November 2015, and the price was increased to $12.99. Due to the popularity of the early access edition of the game, the deadline for release was pushed back to 2016 and more resources were devoted to the art design of the game, resulting in art assets that didn't match the earlier levels of the game. These were used in later levels to give the impression of the world becoming deeper as the player explores it. Epistory was available in English, French and German from the early access period, and Spanish was added later on.
