The Typing of the Dead: OVERKILL Announced & Available To Download Now

Typing Of The Dead Overkill

SEGA has announced that The Typing of the Dead: OVERKILL launched exclusively for PC Digital Download yesterday just in time for Halloween. Developed by Modern Dream with a little help from Hardlight Studios, this adaptation of console gore-fest The House of the Dead: OVERKILL is available for download now and will be priced at £14.99/$19.99/€17.99. The original The House of the Dead: OVERKILL is also included in the package!

The Typing of the Dead: OVERKILL, like its aforementioned console counterpart, uncovers the ugly, terrifying secrets behind the original The House of the Dead; the daddy of all over-the-top shooters. This time though, trigger-happy creature blasters will trade in their light guns for keyboards and will need to hone their typing skills to repel the mutant hordes with lightning-fast spelling and lethally accurate grammar. Up to two players can take on the fright-filled story mode or one of three monster-maiming mini-games all designed to improve your keyboard skills in the bloodiest typing tutorial around.

Ollie Clark, Creative Director at Modern Dream said:

“People often gripe about how video games aren’t educational or useful in everyday life. 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. Happy Halloween!”

John Clark, Vice President of Digital Distribution for SEGA West added:

“I can’t give you a quote AND simultaneously fend off legions of the dead by typing progressively more complex words and phrases at the same time!”

The Typing of the Dead: OVERKILL is out now and available on Steam and from other participating digital retailers.
