Elegy for a Dead World

Elegy for a Dead World is available now on Steam for PC, Mac and Linux, 10 percent off ($13.50) through December 17. Elegy for a Dead World is a game about writing and a lesson in British Romantic poetry – players travel to far-off, alien planets and complete phrases about the environment, typing in whatever they wish to craft their own stories. The worlds are created in the vein of famed poets Percy Bysshe Shelley, Lord Byron and John Keats.

The game offers 27 writing challenges across different landscapes, with a cast of characters ranging from archaeologist to thief. Players can share their completed stories and read other players’ writings through Steam Workshop.

The launch places Elegy for a Dead World ahead of schedule, as it was originally due to release in early 2015. Elegy for a Dead World is making its way into classrooms, featured in ESL, creative writing and game design programs at almost 50 institutions in 13 countries. The game comes from Dejobaan Games and Popcannibal.
