Type to Continue is a free horror game with a typing element. It’s similar to Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing Collection and Tux Typing where you’ll need to type specific letters and words to progress. However, the terrifying element is what sets it apart from any game in the genre.
The setting is a long corridor in a dark hotel. Your mission is to collect the name of every resident on that floor. It seems endless, but you will eventually reach the end, but that’s only if you can manage to outlast the monster following you slowly with ill-intent.
The name collector
When you begin Type to Continue, you’re given a mission to write down the names of every guest staying at the hotel on the floor. While the quest seems easy, the hallway doesn’t seem to end. The scenes all look the same, with the lighting, shadows and doors all looking the same.
To capture the names, you need to look at the door and type exactly as you see the words. As you type the right letters, they will highlight in green. Make a mistake, and the highlighting will stop. You’ll need to go back to the letter you missed to continue.
What sets Type to Continue apart from other typing games are the horror settings. It gives you a sense of urgency, especially when you hear something breathing down your neck. You can look around, and see how close the demon is to killing you. The further you progress, the quicker you’ll need to type.
The endless corridor
The scenes down the corridor don’t ever change. The only differences you’ll notice are the names on the doors and ever-increasing darkness. Of course, there’s the creature following you every step of the way within the splendid graphics. However, there aren’t many special effects.
How fast can you type?
Type to Continue is a clever design by an intelligent mind who knows takes a basic game with intense graphics within a scary atmosphere. Since most of the scenes down the hallway are the same, it’s incredible how such a plain structure can terrify any gamer it comes across.
It’s reminiscent of the first-person horror element of games like Silent Hill P.T. and Resident Evil 7. You’ll be typing as fast as your heart is beating out of fear, accompanied by the terrifying audio.
