You are the main protagonist: a small person made from letters that comprise the word “hero”. Typoman is your hero’s journey through a typography-themed world in which you must always be on your toes. These levels will keep you thinking and create challenges for your brain to overcome. You play a hero that is a symbol for writers who write for truth and freedom; there are even elements that symbolize censorship, as well.
Text is integrated into the gorgeous 2D game world. While most of your hero is intact, he is still missing an arm, which you are on a quest to find. Eventually, a mysterious “guardian angel” gives you back you arm, but only after completing a few puzzles along your way. Solving a puzzle involves thinking of the word that solves your problem and creating it with the letters you are given. Some of the puzzles can even be deadly, but there are foes as well. The Hate monster is a being much like yourself, made of letters to comprise a word which reflects its actions towards you.
Brainseed Factory, the developer, is hoping to have the game out within three or four months, but we don’t have an official release date. The game will be Wii U exclusive. What do you think of Typoman? Tell us in the comments!
