Many gamers who are fond of zombie-themed horror games have fond memories of the House of the Dead franchise, which has two standout iterations – Typing of the Dead, which turned the rail shooter into a typing tutor, and House of the Dead: Overkill, which updated the then-aging engine into something that looks properly current gen (at that time. The game was released on the Wii).
Now, gamers can have the best of both worlds with the release of Typing of the Dead: Overkill, which takes House of the Dead: Overkill and ports it to PC – giving it the necessary slight bump in visuals – and turns it into a typing game. As if that’s not reason enough to buy the game, it also comes with the full version of the PS3 version of House of the Dead.
You can get Typing of the Dead: Overkill from Steam or through the Sega Store.
