Typocalypse 3D is a typing-shooter game where you take the role of Bud, the army guy, who was assigned to single-handedly defend the stranded army barracks in the middle of nowhere.

To protect your barracks, you need to gun down the constant waves of zombies by, strangely enough, typing the words above their heads.

There are 4 POWERUPS in the game and a SECONDARY SNIPER WEAPON, so make sure to make good use of them if you want to prevail and make it to the leaderboards!

Type…for your life!

Instructions

Type the words above the zombies’ heads using nothing but your hands and keyboard.

Collect the powerups by destroying the crates that are periodically supplied.

These are the keys to activate the powerups:

  • TAB – Sniper Weapon
  • 1 – Slow Time
  • 2 – Landmines
  • 3 – Rapid Fire
  • 4 – C4

Often, when lying in my bed at night, I drift off to sleep to the chorus of machine guns firing at a steady rate. I’m not in a war zone, nor am I located near an extremely busy firing range. It’s the constant natter of flesh against plastic that causes this droll sound to invent itself in my head at night. If you haven’t caught on yet, it’s the sound of typing. This action is something I do every day, and so I’m very familiar with the sound it creates – a kind of “ra-ta-ta-ta-ta.” So, to me, the idea of punching out letters and having them transform into bullets feels like a very natural step. This may go some way to explaining why it is that writers enjoy typing games so much. What’s funny is that we like to consider ourselves badass when starting up a typing game. It goes something like: “It’s alright, people; I’ve got this. Step back; I’m a writer.”

Great game love it, only problem I have is for some reason I have an instinct to hit enter once in a while then it starts the game over again lol maybe you can take that enter out of the game to do nothing :D

Thanks for playing! Yea, there's a bug in the game at the moment where the PAUSE menu is still active even though it's hidden while playing the game, and when you pressed Enter, unfortunately the "Quit" button on the Pause menu was selected :(

Really fun game, Not sure about the WPM on it, might be lag induced, but I average 98-105 wpm.. seems I can't get over 50-75 on this game, other then that, It was fun =) i scored 876,094 with 17 highest combo, 94 accuracy and 75 wpm on endurance. I'm looking forward to possibly a store mode, I was on typing wizard btw. Overlay on the text's caused me a little bit of issues. The sniper seems underpowered as well, The only reason i died was because they move fast during sniping, as soon as i come out of the sniper, they're all right up next to me.. Maybe use the slow time during sniper might make it worth it, otherwise its a death-wish. Other then helpful criticism, I absolutely loved the soundtrack, and the landmines work great. I horded them as much as possible. Not sure if they actually stacked or not, seems I lost them if i didn't use but couldn't really tell.

I meant to say, I'm looking forward to the story mode, Auto correct for the lose eh? But a store mode where you could buy upgrades would definitely be interesting as well. Happy accident?

Thanks a lot for playing the game and for your comments!

It's best to keep the sniper for when zombies start to gang up on you because it can help you clear them out. A sniper bullet penetrates multiple zombies, and you can TAB back out of the sniper (you don't have to use all the ammo at one go).

As regards the landmines, they stop stacking when you have collected three landmine crates. When you use them, then you will be able to start stacking them again.

My pleasure, looking forward to possible future expansion. Do you plan on making more or is this more of a final product now?

Are you getting performance issues?

If so, you can reduce your graphics quality from the Options menu by pressing the Escape.

This was actually surprisingly fun. I really didn't think it would be, but it was pretty inventive.

To be honest, I'd say the learning curve was a tiny bit steep. Fun, but difficult. Just a few balancing issues really, but if you could make the sniper rifle better, etc, I'm sure it could be even better :)

In this game, I have worked with a fixed 800x600 resolution so at this point, it would be a quite a task to rework it to support variable resolutions.

For this reason, I am not planning to make this one a downloadable game just yet.

Haha what an awesome video! You really my day with this :D Interestingly enough, your video is the first online video with Typocalypse 3D footage!

So yea, thanks a lot for that!

Btw, when you typed TROUT, the reason two zombies died was because one of them (the non-TROUT one) ran into one of your powerup box crates and died xD
