While video games are barely on my radar—forget about them even entering my peripheral vision—the word Typography certainly caught my eye in this one from arte.tv.

Type:Rider narrates the history of typography in an adventure and puzzle game. It’s also quite informative, particularly if you know very little about history of type. The excuse of not taking a typography class in school no longer holds, people!

“It’s like a beautiful, clever, interactive documentary, and although it stumbles a bit due to some technical issues, the end result is a wonderful, if sometimes aggravating, experience that I’d recommend to anyone” says Shaun Musgrave in his review for TouchArcade, where he gave the game a 4.5 star rating.

Discover the first five levels of Type:Rider on arte.tv—six, to be accurate, since there is also a secret level (which uses Comic Sans as its font theme!). The entire game is available for download on the AppStore and Google Play for $2.99.
