EDIT: :) I was just about to go to bed when I noticed my game chillin there on the front page. That makes me really happy. I apologize for the glitches, I promise I'll fix them tomorrow. Peace B)

You can either type A Brother of St. Francis, or write your own. They goal of the game is to type the essay for as long as possible without the text filling the screen. In the event of text overload, you freaking die. Good luck sonny.

Disappointing

Great game, but it really disappoints me that the smallest lag generated by my computer and the speeding up of the letters turning white causes it to misregister my typings and I cannot display my full ability. I took a typing class, and I know it's not me because I hit the simplest keys (asdfjkl;) and it would miss while I kept going for the next second or two. I don't know how you can fix the problem, but it's sad that such a simple game can't be enjoyed fully by everyone.

GREAT Idea! But...

System needs a great deal of work. Right now it can't really keep up with me, and I'd definitely change the way punctuation is right now.

good concept, however...

needs work on the punctuation (periods, commas, quotation marks etc) to really make it work.... also, instead of just an essay, why not some famous poems from Edgar Poe or other classic famous written works of art....better yet, make the words form images and/or words of whatever the text is about (such as bird, plane, pig, etc)

Bad proof of concept

If you're going to make a game centered around typing speed then you need to include punctuation and paragraph breaks. You can't simply remove a fundamental part of typing and then expect people to be able to type at full speed.

An interesting concept.

The fact that punctuation is "typed" automatically is a little jarring, especially since the spaces before or after any punctuation is NOT automatically counted. I imagine if a person played it long enough, this might not be an issue.

But if the idea behind the whole thing is to type what you see accurately as quickly as possible (and it is), then automatically counting punctuation but omitting spaces seems just plain inconvenient.

Does that make any sense? I'd love to see another version of this where everything you'd have to type in a real essay acted as a barrier to your progress.
