Typefighters is a competitive multiplayer game where two players battle each other using their typing skills. Its variety of modes does not only emphasise typing speed and correctness, but also other skills like reaction time, sustained attention, creativity, tactics and anticipating the opponents moves. Aside from being a tool to settle arguments on who is the best with a keyboard, the game can also be used for training purposes.

I'm happy to announce that as of today the competitive typing game "Typefighters" is finally released - for free. Download it now for Windows, Linux and Mac!

When revealing the game a few months ago I received lots of positive feedback, among which have been quite a few teachers interested in using the game for teaching purposes. Although I had thought of that idea before, I decided to focus on the skill comparison aspect of the game. After all, there are already lots of games out there that teach typing - but not that many for typing competitions.

Because of that the prospect of people using the game for teaching regardless was quite a nice surprise for me. And since the game's idea has long been a passion project for me, I decided to encourage this aspect and release it for free in order to get it into as much hands as possible. However, the game's Greenlight page will remain online and I will look into building an enhanced version, including Steam matchmaking support, if it gets greenlighted eventually.

Feature overview:

  • Show your friends who is the fastest typist!
  • 8 modes requiring a variety of skills aside from typing speed and correctness.
  • Online and LAN multiplayer for two players.
  • User supplied word lists for additional languages or special challenges.
  • Additional benefit of providing typing practice.
  • Cross-platform multiplayer for Windows, Linux and Mac.
  • Customizable singleplayer opponent.
