Typing Of The Dead Returns! Ish

I wanted to type 'Typing Of The Dead Returns, But Only If You're An Unemployed Japanese Person', but unfortunately it didn't fit. This is, I fear, one of those stories that isn't terribly useful to readers of an English-language PC gaming blog, but I can never rebuff the strange and hilarious attempts the Typing Of The Dead series makes upon my consciousness. This time, it's Typing Of The Dead: Jobhunting Edition.

The new edition, Japanese-only but very much on PC, includes 3000 words specifically related to job-hunting. I'd like to think that this is because endlessly typing the same words at uncaring, grey-faced zombies whose only interest in you is as something to feed off until you die is an incredibly apt metaphor for sending in job applications. I think it's because it's still a typing tutor underneath its words-as-bullets insanity, alas.

It's a tie-in to a Japanese firm's job-hunting... oh, something. Details here. I really don't care why it exists - I just care that, somehow, Sega have made one of existence's weirdest games even weirder.
