Author Comments


Mostly point and click controls (and typing), but there's a few key combinations for specific things:

  • Ctrl + P - Pause
  • Tab - show/hide stats (in game
  • Ctrl + F - Full screen (desktop only)
  • Ctrl + S - Skip current music track


"A Relaxing Typing Game" is a chill typing game for people who like typing for the sake of typing.

Drawing from public domain stories and poetry such as Edgar Allan Poe, Edward Lear and William Shakespeare, this game allows you to type out classic literature and keep track of your WPM, accuracy and mistakes.

Thanks for your kind review 😀

Cute idea, I apparently bumped into a typo during the Alice in Wonderland one however?
It showed up as "theyll" before reaching the word and changed to "they ll" after typing the first t..
Stuck on t-h-e-y and now no character will progress the word further to type the l-l. :(
All the other levels I tried worked fine though.

EAtkin responds:

Ah sorry about that, I had some weird formatting issues with the texts I downloaded - did my best to fix them but somehow missed that. I have to admit I didn't type out the entire of Alice, it really is very long and I didn't expect anyone else to!
Seems some of the apostrophes are written as ’ instead of ', I'll put a fix out today!

Updated: I've fixed Alice so it should be fully typeable now, but I've also added in a failsafe so if I've missed anything and something outside the standard keyboard range crops up, it gets auto-typed so shouldn't leave you stuck!

I did a Dream within a Dream, and got 98%. So I did a little dance to pat myself on the back. Thank you EAtkin, this is a delightful game.

EAtkin responds:


I want medals for this!

EAtkin responds:

Never actually considered anything like medals, I'll see if I can add it in!

(update: I think I've just about worked it out, so maybe soon + can hopefully add a scoreboard)

pretty chill
