Top 5 typing games on PC in 2018
It’s surprisingly hard to find (good) typing games on PC. Here’s the result of me searching all over the internet for the few gems that there are.
It turns out they are a niche genre in Japan (Typing Space Harrier anyone?!) but are basically non-existent in the west unless you count the countless low quality flash games or the very dry, purely educational “Marvis Beacon Teaches Typing” style of games.
The Typing of the Dead
Hard to find. This is a House of the Dead 2 remake that involves typing.
The Typing of The Dead: Overkill
Available on Steam. Type words to kill zombies in this Grindhouse inspired House of the Dead game.
Icarus Proudbottom’s World of Typing Weekly!
Free and a sequel to the original Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing. This game is episodic. It’s typing murder mystery?!
Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing
Free and awesome! Very high production values. This was made in a gamejam for the Something Awful forums.
Typer Shark Deluxe
Old game that is available on Steam. Made by Popcap games! It ends up being pretty onenote but it’s pretty cheap and even has a demo. I did enjoy my time playing it.
It involves typing sharks to death and even has bossfights!
