Cunking Spock: Typing Of The Dead’s Ultra-Profanity Pack

By Alec Meer on December 17th, 2013 at 8:00 pm.

Because I am the most cheerless of cheerless gits, The Typing of the Dead: Overkill’s combination of endlessly mofoing grindhouse satire and straight repetition of what was a great joke ten years ago (i.e. typing as shooting) left me very cold and a little sad. Fun tunnel. Those who found the dual-gag and puerility overkill to be a reliable source of belly laughs have, however, been treated to a steady stream of word pack DLC, so far including Shakespeare, Football Manager and now one that finally coaxes a smile from my pursed lips – the profanity pack, aka Filth of the Dead. Pickled pork sword.

Hairy crevice. Furious penis. Walking talking sphincter. Consider my erection. Such a huge manatee.

While I might sound like a big fat hypocrite, given I moaned about how tedious the ratatatat f-bombs of the main game were, this pack actually tries to address that problem – going full-pelt for absurd, unpredictable innuendo. Creaming the trifle. And, er, very much not innuendo.

It does make me want to play again, I’ll admit. Spunk fountain. Not sure I can really stomach the thought of sitting through all that overwrought faux-grindhouse comedy again, though. Poo protest. But yeah, it’s tackling head-on the issue of TTODO living or dying on whether hearing the word ‘fuck’ 100 times a minute is funny to you, and I applaud that. Spanks-per-minute.

Filth of the Dead is out now via Steam, costing £1.99. It’s just a word pack, of course, but in this game words are the biggest of deals. Dripping wart goo.

    This is awesome, so much better than Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing for improving my 11 year olds keyboard skills.

    I also spat my dinner out over my keyboard at “Spunk fountain”

    “Prehensile Phallus” is one of my favorites.

    I love it that there are valid Polish swears mixed in.
    We have the best swears in the world, even British developers agree. :P

    At least the ad matched the article for me: http://imgur.com/maXRkP8 :)

      The advert text got as far as “Once you’re inside your friend”, but then stopped making sense.

    This article reminds me of South Park’s Le Petit Tourette

    In Germany, holy Angela shields us from such profanity. And from the main game. At least, that is what I figure why it is not available here. I bet people are afraid of children acting out the atrocities of spelling under the influence of the game.

      The interesting thing here is, that normally you can buy such games via other retailers like GMG, Gamersgate etc… but whenever I´ve seen that game somewhere, they always tell me I´m not worthy enough to buy it.

      I don´t really care for this game though… I wished they made a remake of the original Typing of the Dead (or just keep it like it is and just support your local language Keyboard layout, which was a problem in the original one). It was very funny seing the people running around with a PC on their back and a Keyboard in front of them :-)

    I’m not sure if you can only pick one set at once, but it would be some kind of beautiful to combine this with the Shakespeare DLC.

    Can you turn on/off these DLCs in the options menu?
