Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing is mental; play it

"Typing is full of vitamins C, B12, and antioxidants"

"You can't just type ANYTHING, you know."

Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing is a typing game. Kind of. You will type. Feverishly, fiendishly, and a bit fetishisticly. For reasons. And an owl will feed you false facts while an executive will ask you to sign your rights away and you will because it will be fun.

"'Where there is typing, there is life' - Mahatma Gandhi"

There is an unused progression system at the start wherein you can sap all your points from "strength," "optimism," and "hygiene" and put them towards "animal spirit" and "overall mojo." There's also a Typogatchi egg you feed your typing points to for sustenance. Sometimes you have to type all the letters in a word twice.

Just play it. You can play it right here. It takes under 20 minutes. It's manic and hilarious and surprisingly taut. The end is fantastic.
