Explore The History of Typography in Adventure-Puzzler Type:Rider

Have you ever stopped to think about the many different ways that humans have communicated through different writing styles since the beginning of mankind? Initially the writing was quite primative and mostly consisted of rock paintings, but as civilization grew so did their methods of written communication. Eventually it was carved into stone, scrawled out by a skilled calligrapher, or typed up on the most recent word processor. Each of these new methods came with a drastically different look and feel than those that came before it. In Type:Rider you will be exploring these different writing styles throughout the ages in a truly unique adventure that the developers have crafted.

In Type:Rider you will be guiding two dots through the ages and across a wide variety of typographic styles and techniques. You’ll be faced with some challeging puzzles as you make your way through the unique and stunning world that lies before you. Type:Rider brings the adventure-puzzler genre to a whole new level and delivers a gaming experience that you wont soon forget.
