Type:Rider is a strikingly ambitious game. It’s a platformer that has you play as a pair of dots who jump, swim, and solve environmental puzzles to progress. It’s also an educational game that teaches you about the history of typography as you play.The game plays out as a series of side-scrolling levels that hinder your progress with puzzles and obstacles instead of enemies. The usual platformer ingredients are on display here, like spikes, lava, water, and moving platforms. It might not sound terribly original, but the developers have pumped tons of creativity into the game’s design. Each world is based on a particular font, and the environments are made up of giant letters in that font, plus whatever new printing technology became available at the time.The controls aren’t as precise as they could be, but checkpoints are closely spaced so you never lose much progress. Every good platformer has collectibles, and here they’re the letters of the alphabet. A number of asterisks are also scattered throughout the levels; grabbing them unlocks sections of text that teach the history of writing and typography. The history is fun to read even if you’re not particularly interested in fonts.Like in Limbo, the graphics are silhouetted and stunning, set against abstract pages of text, drawings, and photographs. The music is pleasantly atmospheric, changing with the timeframe the levels take place in.One problem– and it’s a minor one– is that stopping to read the text sections as you collect asterisks in the game does a disservice to the gameplay. It’s far better to play the levels without stopping for the history lessons, and then read the texts you’ve collected between levels.Despite the somewhat mushy controls, Type:Rider is an incredibly fun, unique platformer. It manages to entertain and inform in equal measure, which is more than most games try to do.

Once again, a great concept that's ruined by its mechanics.

The game looks good and sounds good, and you can even learn a thing or two about the history of typography. Fantastic! The downside to this is sluggish controls that ruin most of the fun. You steer a colon (the punctuation mark) around the levels, but it reacts quite slowly to your inputs – it feels like it is constantly wading through sticky goo, but even in the air it feels inert. (To clarify, i don't mean that the controls are unresponsive per se, it's rather the slow-moving and slowly-reacting behaviour of your character.)

And then there are the "usual" issues many indie games suffer from these days: No way to skip past the opening titles and no options menu (you can't even change the display resolution, and the in-game language is set to whatever region your OS is set to).

As much as i would like to recommend this game, i can't because these issues weigh it down too heavily.

At first, I thought I've found another game as good as 140 or Thomas Was Alone. It was until the second set of levels... Now first of all, the graphics are very good execpt for the Futura levels in my opinion. The music is really enjoyable too and the ambience is there. There's quite a few pages about typography history. But as with any games, the gameplay is the most important part and it's where this game has many issues...

First of all, the controls. Your character is a colon. Sure, it allows for some tactics with lines and such, but it also makes it hard to control. Also the gravity and acceleration are so wacky... It just doesn't feel right.

Then you get into bugs, a game breaking bug where a letter (letter are obstacles and platforms in this game) is facing the wrong way, making the level impossible to finish. In case it happens, you have to restart the level all over again and hope it's fixed. Sometimes the music/sounds go away and sometimes when you pause or alt-tab, the controls doesn't work anymore and you have to Alt+F4 out of the game. Also i've had an issue where my character got stuck in the middle of a letter and I had to restart the game...

Some more issues: the maximum resolution is 1600x900, there's no 1080p, there's a few frame drops throughout the game and the last achievement is really frustating. Also you need to modify your computer settings to change the language of the game (It's in your natal language or pc language by default).

I didin't enjoy playing through this game very much because of all the CONs i've listed. There are way more fluid and responsive platformers out there that you should play first, if you're out of platformers, you could always pick this game up, but with it's controls it's quite frustating to play.

This is a fairly fun game and I appriciate a game developer attempting to teach their audience about history. The gameplay is straight-forward and mostly intuitive, though some mechanics are unique and require a little getting used to. You can tell that the devs put a lot of work into their level design and creating an atmosphere that compliments what the player is learning about.

One major drawback to this game is the sloppy manner in which the educational aspect is presented. The developer's refusal to use the past tense is a constant annoyance. Numerous errors in sentence structure, grammar, and spelling plague the text. This is somewhat ironic in a game dedicated to teaching about the history of writing.

Overall, the game is entertaining and does an adequate job educating the player. I'd recommend this game, but I'd wait for it to go on sale.

Well here is the thing. Usually when you want to jump right, you press the correct buttons to do so and expect that to happen. If you play this game, get used to the little dots jumping left when you want them to go right. What if you want them to jump left? No sorry they don't do that they only jump in place then. They are also slow to respond to command so get used to not being able to react to sudden changes in your way when they happen.

It pains me to press THUMBS DOWN for this game because it looks so pleasing to eyes and you get to learn from it but the mechanics ruin the whole thing. I dont know if I will even finish it because tetris level is torture with these controls. Boo.

This game looked interesting, but unfortunately I quit after the second level. The only source of challenge were the frustrating controls. The dots' movement makes no sense sometimes and make me feel like I was playing the game with oven mittens on. Do not recommend.

pretty interesting but the controls are just awful (I've played it with an xbox controller too, and they're still pretty awful)

Great concept, amazing visuals, interesting historical lessons. But this game is a platformer, so it needs responsive controls. Alas, this is not the case here. Movement is sluggish, the character (colon, in fact) reacts slowly and even the most basic actions require a lot of patience and luck.

Bottom line: this is a nice history lesson, but a bad platformer.

A fun but short 'Limbo' style platform adventure game freaturing typography. If your a graphic designer or typographer you will get a kick out of this. The level design is fantastic and is always throwing new stuff at you. My only complaint is that it is very short. I compleated it in under two hours. Death to Helvetica. Long live Clarendon!

Cons:
You can get stuck/become unable to jump/fall out of the minecart. Doesn't happen too often though, and the respawn points are fairly dense.
If you leave mid-chapter, you lose progress (collectibles) from that run.
The final (secret) level is infuriatingly difficult, as is getting one of the achievements that requires you to play through a whole level without dying.
The text on pretty much every page in the books has typos/missing words/grammatical errors/odd English, giving the impression that it wasn't written by a native English speaker, or even proofread for that matter.

Pros:
It's stylish, I suppose.

Ultimately, you'd be better off just reading the Wikipedia article on typography.

I love fonts , and i love gaming! seeing those 2 combined? I love it!

Very well made, and apart from that an interesting read about the history of typography.

Might sound boring, but it is setup like a platform puzzler game. Nice music and atmosphere.
Too bad it was pretty short. Love to see, play and read more

Great art and music.

♥♥♥♥ty platforming. Seriously, who decided it was a great idea to jump in the direction of the surface normal?
Also: hurr hurr, let's make the character a colon so he'll get stuck in all the crevasses

Just watch a playthrough.

What's wrong with the physics of this game? It's taking me forever to get the last achievement! I'd have rated it positively, but it has two of the most annyoing minigames I've ever played. Comic Sans and tetris inside Pixel

I'm not sure who's intended audience of this game.

Platformer part doesn't offer much special and way too casual.

Educational/History part of the game is kind of shallow and not too engaging.

So, while visuals and sound effects are quite nice, that's not enough for me to recommend this game.

중간중간에 글자에 대한 역사가 나오는점이 흥미롭습니다. 진행은 다소 단조롭지만 무난한편이고. 퍼즐적요소도 있습니다. 역사에 대한 글읽는 재미가 쏠쏠한 게임

I recommend this to all my designer friends. It's unique and atomspheric. The music really stood out for me. It's been a while since I enjoyed a platformer and this was nice and short. The bonus level was hilarious. Ah, comic sans, when will you finally wither away into obscurity?
