Litany of Curses

A typing game created in the marvelous Godot engine in a week for Godot Wild Jam #54 by texnoforge and friends:

"I feel immersed typing away in a boundless void of death with the echoes of my failures."

                                                                                    – Avocadough

Controls

Control the game by typing the text you see, that's all!

Sorry for no sound/music controls, out of time 🙈

Challenges

If you want some extra challenge, you can achieve:

  • Perfectionist: Correct all your mistakes by having Effective Accuracy 100 %
  • Firm: Don't correct a single mistake and don't input space in place of character by mistake.
  • Flawless: Don't make any mistakes - Raw Accuracy 100 %

Reaching Fast (70+ WPM) is quite impressive IMHO, higher speeds are nearly inhuman - post screenshots or it didn't happen :)

Update: Hiro holds top score with insane 120 WPM 🤯

I really liked the effects of the characters flying in!

Holy Crab, you can type at 111 WPM with 99% accuracy?! That’s 555 Chars per Minute or 9 Chars per Second or 9.25 Hz :-o

That’s inhuman, I bow to your mad typing skills!

There’s only one rank above Ultra Fast, I didn’t expect anyone to come even close to 120 WPM, this is very interesting - thanks for sharing!

Not sure I can go any faster than this while maintaining decent accuracy. I thought 120 would unlock the next rank but I guess not. :P

Lol you broke it, the Cursist is duplicated for some reason and Perfectionist shoulnd’t even be there… nice :D

You might have hit the rounding threshold of 119.5-119.99999 WPM or my code sucks for the >= 120 WPM edge case… (The rank was supposed to be “insane”)

Either way, MAD speed!

the vibe is great here :)
the overall feeling is really good.

But I'm still very bad at typing ^^

Thanks for playing and feeling it, now you’re insignificantly better at typing :D

Ain’t easy to get Flawless, I had to slow down.

Loved the sound and music, created a real spooky ambiance for the game.

Thanks, I passed your compliment to the artists behind those :)

I for one really enjoy the funny song created by letter sounds, it really responds to how I type, telling me a little about my typing habits while sounding real cool 🔊

Glad you like it, decent WPM :) The lines are randomly selected from a predefined set, they might accidentally create a story :D
