Typing of the Dead by way of an old skool platform game! Quite therapeutic too, well done :)

I remember having to play a lot of typing games as a kid to practice my typing speed. I would have LOVED if this was one of them!

Awesome job!! :)

I really enjoyed this. Found it weirdly relaxing haha.

If this were to ever to become a “real” game, I would definitely use “weirdly relaxing” in the marketing materials!

Oh, a typing game, very unique! Funny how your Stan kinda looks like the 2D version of my Stan.

I found this quite fun, I did not expect a typing game but it worked pretty well! The biggest issue I had is that it was a bit awkward to play with my split keyboard, but I’m not really sure how you would work around that, maybe allowing someone to use WASD (or other bindings) instead but still firing the letters? Bit of a tricky one to solve, but I got through the whole game and enjoyed it regardless!

Wow! Such a good idea. The aliens are so cute!

Developer

I can’t take credit for the aliens– all of the graphics I used come from Kenney!

Great idea for a game! Interesting combination of a typing game and a 2D platformer. I've never really seen that before. Only complaint is the strange slope physics. Other than that, cool idea and nice job!

What a neat idea with a real good vibe to it.  Such a nice surprise!

I did find it awkward to try and move and type at the same time, but I wonder if there would be a way to move and still have your main fingers on the letter keys? Maybe the left shift to move left and the semi colon to move right?  That might feel too strange though!

A very charming game and nice submission, well done!

Very cool, typing of the dead in side scroller fashion!

Loved it, great job.

Never saw a game like this before with typing as your attack. Kinda tedious sometimes, but fun and helpful to my skills!

Fun typing concept
