On Life and Love

Simply amazing.

WO introduced me to this game this weekend called Typing of the Dead. It was one of those games that would have been made for an arcade where you had a gun used to shoot at zombies, like House of the Dead or something.

Since it’s on a PC, though, you don’t actually shoot the baddies. You type whatever set of characters (maybe a word, maybe a few letters, maybe a sentence) that represents them. Speed matters, and too many typing mistakes gets you killed.

But it learns. Things you type well come up less and less.

Genius. It’s hard, but it’s fun. It’s also a bit dorky (FBI agents running around with keyboards hanging from their necks), but that’s part of the fun.
