Earlier today Sega announce that their newest title, The Typing of the Dead: Overkill has officially launched and is now available for digital download via PC. The Typing of the Dead: Overkill is a PC adaptation of the console game, The House of the Dead: OVERKILL
The Typing of the Dead: Overkill, just as it’s source material does, acts as means by which to further explore the setting of the much loved classic shooter game, The House of the Dead. However, this PC version takes a real twist when we get down to game play mechanics.In lieu of traditional button based shooting, Typing of the Dead will utilize a “teaches typing” function, forcing gamers to accurately spell out words and utilize grammar in order to make their way through the gory plot.
“People often gripe about how video games aren’t educational or useful in everyday life,” said Ollie Clark, Creative Director at Modern Dream. “But with The Typing of the Dead: Overkill you can now shoot up a carnival full of flesh eating mutant clowns while improving your typing and personal vocabulary.”
“We’re excited to bring back a new iteration of The Typing of the Dead with that over-the-top flair that The House of the Dead: Overkill is known for,” said John Cheng, President and COO, SEGA of America. “Nothing spells edu-tainment like The Typing of the Dead: Overkill!”
The game is priced at £14.99/$19.99/€17.99.
