Today, most people know how tu use softwares such as Words, so everyone is more or less familiar with the different names of the fonts which can be used. However, the chances that they know about their origin and the History of writing are pretty thin. Fortunately, the European TV Channel Arte decided to support the development of a video game aimed at teaching us about all this. Let me introduce you to Type:Rider. Note: The game is available on iOS and Android for €2.69. Although we reviewed the mobile version, we used the PC demo which can be played via any web browser.
Publishing a platformer whose goal is not only to entertain, but also to teach people about the History of writing surely was a pretty bold move on Arte's part, but they made it against all odds. Although it may appear as a boring subject for some of you, we can assure you that the developers managed to make a pretty fun game out of it. The only real problem with Type:Rider comes from the touch controls, which can sometimes be a bit frustrating when things get a bit more complicated. It's not really something we can blame Cosmografik for though, as it usually is the case with most games on smartphones. Let's now hope more ideas of this kind will come to life in the future, as the number of interesting topics to tackle is rather limitless in our opinion.
