Developer Hero Game Co have announced that they are releasing a demo for their second Prose & Codes for Steam Next Fest starting on October 1st. Players get to explore 7 beloved literary genres – from nostalgic children’s stories to bone-chilling horror – by decrypting hand-selected excerpts from some of literature’s finest works.
Explore the wonderful world of book through deceptively simple ciphers. Get a taste of hundreds of literary classics – both well known and obscure – as you solve your way across 7 beloved genres. Like what you decoded? Every single book can be read 100% FREE – direct links included! The e-books can be read in browser or downloaded as pdfs, epubs, and more.
A portion of all sales will go to Project Gutenberg, an online library of over 60,000 free e-books.
“The hardest part about making Prose & Codes was not getting distracted by all the amazing books,” said Rachel Reed, one-half of the husband and wife duo at Hero Game Co. “Yet, that’s exactly what we hope our players will do—find a book that speaks to them and go read it!”
