About

Get ready for an electrifying mix between a bullet game and a typing hell! Dodge bullets while typing exorcisms at the very same time: turn on both sides of your brain and jump into the adventure of Ray Bibbia, a private exorcist who's going to face the threats of a demonic outbreak and deal with his dark and sinful past at the same time! A city in decay, streets filled with thugs, crime and censorship and only one man to stop it all. Groundbreaking gameplay, exorcists, demons, metal singers, pimps, the Pope, drama, bad jokes and tons of hardcore action-filled boss battles for the first type ‘em up game ever realized.

Hold your Bible tight, both hands needed!

THE CITY: Rome is the theatre of our adventure, discover new locations and fight in one of the biggest metropolis in history, home of some of the craziest characters and enemies! Behind a demonic outbreak, unearthly forces are scheming to seize power and subvert the order of the the biggest religious organization in Rome: The Holy Church has reached unlimited powers over the streets of the city, but how can our protagonist be sure of their good deeds? Unravel the demonic plot aimed to overturn the order in the city and put together the pieces of the dark past behind Ray Bibbia!

THE CAST: From Goth maids to gun-crazed gangsters and the Pope himself, Ray will get his hands dirty by exploring a great variety of locations to solve a mystery that’s going to grow heavier as it takes shape. Who’s gonna turn out to be a friend and who’s gonna stab Ray behind his back?

Product received for free the first goal of typing game has always been to learn to (better) typing on the keyboard while having fun. But where initially the fun side was very limited, over time different studios have tried to offer more ambitious games by adding other gameplay elements. I think for example at modern dream and its typing of the dead overkill where you have to fight undead by typing words instead of shooting directly at the screen with a pistol or more recently at fishing cactus and its excellent Epistory (whose second episode will be released at the end of the year) that put forward the adventure side with a big part of the game dedicated to exploring and discovering the world. The Textorcist: the story of Ray Bibbia goes even further in the intersection of improbable genres, it associates typing game and bullet hell. Yes Yes, as in a shmup you have to avoid hundreds of shots! You are here directing an Exorcist fighting against demonic forces and trying to evac a conspiracy going back to the Vatican. To hunt creatures, Ray must read passages from his Bible. So you have to enter Latin phrases while your opponents attack you. Your right hand will be on the arrows of your keyboard to be able to Dodge while the left one will move around to validate the letters. It will take a little time to adapt, because even a person accustomed to write without looking at the keys would have trouble fetching the P with the left hand without being mistaken. Obviously, the goal is to take advantage of every downtime to type in two hands and be much more effective. The more you type fast and the more points scroll but beware, the slightest mistake is punitive. The game returns a letter back and if you do not realize it soon enough you can quickly chain the mistakes, especially since I really insist on the fact that you have to type the sentences in a screen overloaded with enemy shots! When you get hit, Ray drops his book. This is not too serious, except that you are no longer protected and if you have a new attack you lose a point of life (you only have three per fight and they are long enough). Another subtlety, if you put too much time to recover it, Ray loses the thread of his incantation and must start again at the very beginning of his sentence, a real catastrophe in the somewhat advanced levels. Graphically the title is very nice with a well mastered pixel art. Boss fights are really interesting and the developers have found a lot of ideas to vary the pleasures (vomit that hides the letters to seize, hitting the ground that mixes the letters...). By cons attention, the Textorcist is very difficult even for a player who manages well with a keyboard. If I were to find a negative point it would be at the level of heavy and forced humor. Jokes and references are chained together without ever stopping, even when there is no real place. But hey, this is really a detail because the heart of the game is excellent. I really liked the demo released a few months ago, the final version is better at any point with much more diversity and memorable boss fights. The typing game/bullet hell mix works perfectly and it's a delight to see developers take risks by attempting something original, Bravo to them! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gReni22tAMs
