We played this for a while but had some trouble figuring out what was going on. Eventually we concluded that the wizard types words and tries to shoot the girl with them while she tries to avoid the letters. But we weren't sure what the girl's goal was, exactly. Except just to stay alive, I guess, long as she could
Nonsense words were really hard to type!
Actually, all the words seemed a little long.
Maybe give the wizard a pool of words to choose from when typing so if he wanted something fast he could type a short word but if he wanted something large with a lot of spread he could type that, too.
Ok, after reviewing the instructions here, I realized we had this wrong. The girl is not supposed to dodge letters but collect
them. We thought the wizard was trying to shoot letters at the girl, which is why we thought shorter words and a word pool made sense.
No idea what the other pickups did, or what the HUD elements meant.
Overall, kind of an odd, surreal experience -- but fun! Kind of like the vague recollection of a 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.
-type nightmare induced from a week of intensive and strict typing classes.
Thanks for making it!
