Prose & Codes Demo to be Part of Steam Next Fest

Decode the Wit, Wisdom, and Wonder of curated classics

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!”

Prose & Codes Features:

  • 350+ deceptively simple ciphers, each from different works of literature.
  • 7 engaging genres to choose from including sci-fi, mystery, and adventure.
  • Stunning background art featuring vintage illustrations.

  • Easily curate your favorite excerpts and books to read or return to later.
  • Share the joy of reading – a portion of all proceeds from the full game will go to Project Guntenberg.

The Prose & Codes demo will be available October 1st on Steam, so cipher lovers can begin decoding soon.
