, in which players blast their way through waves of the undead by passing typing challenges on a PC keyboard, has been hailed as one of the strangest games ever made. And today, the world's foremost typists-versus-zombies simulator shockingly rose from its grave
, as Sega released The Typing of the Dead: Overkill
to Steam without so much as a press release to spoil the surprise.
The game is a typing-based remix of the arcade/console shooter The House of the Dead: Overkill
, and retains all the grindhouse parody and over-the-top profanity of the original; the only difference is that Agent G, Detective Washington and their allies blow zombies' heads off with the power of precise keystrokes instead of light-gun violence. So expect rather a lot of "adult content" to go along with your Mavis-Beacon-by-way-of-George-Romero.
