Oh man, my Halloween just got 100 times more awesome.
The Typing of the Dead on the SEGA Dreamcast is one of gaming’s most delightfully bizarre titles to ever be released. Consequently, it’s hard to find these days for anyone wanting to go back, which has left a generation of young typists vulnerable to the zombie apocalypse.
Today, SEGA has released The Typing of the Dead: Overkill onto Steam. Like its predecessor, this game is an arcade-style zombie rail shooter modeled after the classic House of the Dead series, except you fire by typing words and sentences. The faster you type, the better you shoot. If it’s half as fun as the original game, this combination of arcade action, typing tutor, and Z-Movie aesthetics should be great fun during the spooky season.
The Typing of the Dead: Overkill is regular priced at $19.99 but is currently on sale for $9.99. You can pick it up here.
