Aleksander Kiin dropped us a mail about TypeRacer before it went totally memeic, but only tried it now. It was only a matter of time though – when he said the magic phrase “Typing of the Dead” it was inevitable we’d get hands on. It’s Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing meets Trackmania, a drop-in-drop-out online racing game based around how quick you can hammer out phrases from films and books. And, yes, the bits from Burgess’ Clockwork Orange are openly unfair unless you’re actually a Droog, which only two of the four RPSers are. It’s an elegant game, but the only problem is there’s a bunch of people tediously doing some manner of script-fiddling with it. Ignore them, get your motor running and type for your life.
Oh – and how many wpm are you doing? I’m about mid-nineties at best, because I typo all the time. As you may have noticed.
