Icarus Proudbottom
  • I know some of you kids played Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing, but are you keeping up with the weekly episodes? They're wonderful--I just finished episode 3. The writing is extraordinary----extremely sharp and strong characterizations, and very funny--and I love how they take a very simple mechanic and show its versatility. The basic game is, you're shown a passage and you have to type it, and there's some cheeky score multiplier type powerups, but they keep finding ways to make it fresh.

    I do very much appreciate that in a game--I love when games have a very specific set of physics and a game is spent putting it through its paces. I feel like there is a connection to puzzle games here, but I've got to get ready for work.
  • I should probably play this. Maybe after I get a new keyboard. If I ever do...
  • You can get one for twelve bucks at staples. Just take the L to Union Square.

Howdy, Stranger!
