A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Dead Letters is a typing game in the style of Duck Hunt.

Letters fly across the screen, similarly to the ducks in Duck Hunt.

When a key is pressed which corresponds to a button on screen, the button is shot out of the sky and a point is scored.

The more buttons that are shot in succession the higher the combo meter goes and the more points are gained.

The aim of Dead Letters is to encourage touch typing by insuring that attention needs to be paid to the screen during play, while giving positive feedback for each correct button press.

(Note: Keyboard only)

Inspired by Wizard Jam 4. (Forum Post)
