Typography fans, unite! Type:Rider comes out soon


8:00 PM on 10.04.2013



We've seen a lot of different types of videogame protagonists over the years. There have been countless humans, several aliens, some robots, and a few simple geometric shapes. Not often do you see a piece of punctuation take a leading role in a game, but Type:Rider goes there with its star colon riding through worlds of typography.

It almost looks like a cross between Trials and LIMBO, with each dot of the colon acting as a wheel in a stark, silhouetted landscape. The plucky punctuation mark visits levels based on several different fonts, ranging from the dignified Times New Roman to the reviled Comic Sans. Type:Rider releases on Android and iOS on October 10.

Also, the colon reminds me of a much more demure version of the totally radical '90s RC car, Tyco Rebound.

Sci-fi 2D platformer Orphan looks like a mashup of Limbo and H.G. Wells

Let’s go ahead and get this out of the way, shall we? Yes, Orphan immediately brings to mind Limbo. That’s perfectly fine by me, though. I have enough room left in my heart for more games that can leverage the de...more
