OverviewOverview

Untold is an adventure game you play by reading text and choosing directions. It starts with you waking up on a beach and encounter a nomad who wants revenge on their enemies. Atmospheric sound and music extend the text experience further.

As you make choices the story unfolds differently. Some directions lead to ways that you can survive, others might condemn you to the realm of the dead. Along with the text a map is provided for easy navigation and to keep track of where you have travelled.However you proceed you will earn experience and gain equipment to help built your unique character. Encounters are in the form of turn-taking combat where you pick attacks.

It's a game that creates a classic role-play / dungeons-and-dragons style experience. You start with a premise that you are abandoned and vengeful. You must work to survive the harsh world. How you do that is up to you. What's most impressive is how widely the story can very as you make your choices.
