Typing is a skill that we all need to have in the modern era, but it was stressed heavily and formally “back in the day” when people really had no idea where computers were going to take us. There were entire classes on typing…not computing or programming…typing. Needless to say, the games of pop culture reflected the needs of society, and typing games such as the Typing of the Dead were born.
Typing of the Dead is an edutainment title in the gist of House of the Dead, but you have no guns with which to blast the reanimated enemies, back from the grave. Instead, the zombies have words attached to them and you have to quickly and accurately type them out to destroy the redeads and make certain that they don’t eat your brains. There are tutorials and statistics to gauge how well your typing prowess is progressing. This game is timeless, since typing is a skill that is not going away.
