Dvojtečka na cestě historií písma.

Písmo je jedním z nejdůležitějších vynálezů lidstva, takže asi bylo na čase, aby mu francouzští vývojáři věnovali celou hru. V Type:Rider se stanete dvojtečkou, která cestuje úrovněmi věnovanými historicky významným písmům. V každém kole sbíráte písmenka abecedy a odemykáte informace týkající se daného období. Na konci hry pak víte i typografii dost na to, abyste nepoužívali při každé každé příležitosti MS Comic Sans.

Type:Rider je celkem jednoduchá skákačka. Z herního pohledu je nejneobvyklejší samotná hlavní posta..dvojtečka - významnou roli hraje její těžiště na nejž si musíte trošku zvykat.

Hlavní síla hry ale podle mě spočívá v designu jednotlivých úrovní. Termín design (v původním smyslu) pasuje na málo her víc, než právě na tuhle. Každé písmo je spjaté s nějakou historickou érou a tomu odpovídají i jednotlivé úrovně - projdete se například gotikou, přes divoký západ až po dobu počátků počítačové grafiky.

Hlavní silou Type:Ridera je netradiční téma a design obohacený o spoustu informací z historie typografie. I s písmenky se dá dobře hrát (btw. Pamatujete si písmenkovou polívku?;-)

Priznávam, že hru som kúpil v Humble store a hral som ju len pre achievementy. To bola chyba.
Ide o veľmi príjemnú logickú plošinovku s dvoma bodkami. Na druhej strane mi prišla hra až moc ľahká. (Pokiaľ teda nepočítam posledný cat level, kde to bolo náročné nájsť ten správny rytmus :D)
Celé to doplňuje náučná cesta o fontoch a histórii kníhtlače, písme všetkým, čo s tým súvisí. Veľmi príjemné čítanie pre tých, ktorý sa chcú dozvedieť viac. 7€ sa mi zdá moc, preto považujem za nákup v bundle za brilantný nákup.

úžasně relaxační hra, která vás provede historií písma formou " dvojtečky ". Pokud se chcete odreagovat u " puzzle " s postupným otevíráním knih a zároveň něco dozvědět z historie, pak mohu hru jen doporučit. Přeji příjemný zážitek. Mae

I originally bought this game because I enjoyed the art style, the screen shots reminded me of Limbo, and because I am a fan of typography as a graphic artist. I have taken my fair share of typography courses and I figured it would be fun to see another spin on things in a fun educational style and at the same time enjoy a challenging puzzle game.

The good: The visual style and the music are both fantastic. I enjoyed the choice for the main character. The level designs are fun and each one uses the font you are currently in as the level building blocks. The slight variation of the jumping/swimming/riding carts was interesting. The end level puzzles with the white dot were fairly interesting as well and the most challenging part of the game. If this is all you are looking for then I recommend you try to get this in a sale at some point.

The bad: The game prides itself in "experience and uncover the history and secrets of Fonts and Characters" in the main description, yet all you get is a series of afterthought slides as a background as you are trying to go through each level. There is no narrative or even text, explaining, why you are going from Didot to Clarendon. When you onlock asterisks, you can read more about specific fonts, a short narrative could have elevated the game so much more than a wall of text here.

Each level you ride/jump from A to Z, some letters are for you to collect, some are for you to jump on to complete the level. Overall the main puzzles are fairly simplistic. Another big question mark moment in this game, is when, the colon you are playing, for no obvious reason but to try and add unimaginative difficulty to the game, starts getting shot at by a sniper somewhere. Thankfully this only goes on for one level. Overall somewhat shallow execution of an otherwise promissing concept.

Game is fairly short, finished it in 1.5 hours not even enough to get all the cards.

Again, this might be a fun play if you can get it during a sale, the graphics and audio are great, but the game is somewhat short and not very challenging.

If you are looking for a fun video game I cannot recommend this game. If you are looking for an interactive opportunity to learn about the history of writing and typing then I can recommend this game (this is assuming the information taught is correct, this statement is necessary because of the issues I had seen in the game).

The Game
The controls are very difficult and somewhat unpredictable. When reading the books the game will sometimes not pause, this results: in sounds and music repeating itself on a few second loops, physics objects continue to move, resulting in deaths and missed items. Sometimes the mouse and the controller combine thus making menu navigation difficult. However, the level design throughout the game is pretty good, particularly the last few levels.

The Knowledge
Spelling and grammatical errors are much more prevalent than you would expect from a game teaching about writing and texts. Interesting subject matter, assuming they used reputable sources.

My Thoughts
Everything is mediocre. The gameplay is just good enough to be playable, the writing is just good enough to be understandable. Because they didn't do any part particularly well, it is hard to tell what was the makers focus. It is a shame though because had they tested the game better, fixed the controls a little or made you control a period instead of a colon and proofread the books, this could have been an excellent game. This is why I have my doubts about what I learned through this game, hopefully that historical aspect was their focus.
