Epistory dev’s Algo Bot swaps typing for coding

I've never entirely understood the appeal of games featuring programming elements. They ask you to enact one of the trickiest parts of development, but without rewarding you with a finished game at the end. Algo Bot - a new puzzler from the developers of horsey type-'em-up Epistory, which Pip enjoyed a fair bit - features programming, but wraps it up in an attractive sci-fi world…

John’s Favourite Games Of 2016

Happy Ending! Epistory Riding Fox Out Of Early Access

In Epistory [official site] you play as the muse inside the head of a writer facing a block, and you'll create and expand the world as you, huh, type. Yes, it seems that gameplay is largely a Typing of the Dead-style affair, but it looks pretty, and you ride a giant fox! I wish I could ride a giant fox. Or that I was smaller…
