Today I Learned: A Video Game for the Font Geeks

Finally, a video game for those who love typography- the Type: Rider!

Essentially a puzzle platformer, Type:Rider takes players on a journey of fonts and beautiful graphics. Each level is designed thematically based on different typefaces. For example, the Gothic stage has a Gregorian soundtrack and stark backdrops. As you maneuver your colon (the punctuation mark, not the organ) through each level, you discover the history and legacy of each font. There's even talk of a secret level featuring the aforementioned, widely hated Comic Sans. (

And, sense I love typography, I'm curious about this game. :)
