Typoman: a platform game where one letter changes everything


What's the difference between RUSHING past a dangerous trap and it CRUSHING you to a pulp? In Typoman, it's only one letter.

A clever hybrid of both platform games and puzzle games, Typoman asks you to overcome obstacles by manipulating words, in a black and white world of shifting ledges and shifting meanings. Do you need to find a way past a pool of water being filled by the word RAIN? Just swing the letter D towards it and watch the water DRAIN away.

Rather than flipping switches or finding keys, your hero—who is literally composed of the word HERO—uses letters as both tools and powerups on their quest to recover their missing arm (there's only one R in "hero," after all). To get a better sense of the game, take a look at the TRAP puzzle, where an ominous series of letters lie in wait to flatten you:

Typoman is ultimately headed for the Wii U, at a date to be determined.
