TypingOfEmacs

typing.el — The Typing Of Emacs

You can get the source code here:

A game for fast typers! A game for Emacs!

This is a game inspired by The Typing Of The Dead. That game itself is a parody of The House Of The Dead. In the latter, players use a light gun to shoot zombies and other undead. In the former, players have to type the names of the undead in order to shoot them. The Typing Of Emacs is the parody of the parody, since there are no undead (except possibly for the user staring at Emacs).

In order to play, choose any buffer containing a lot of text and type M-x typing-of-emacs RET to start the game. Traditionally used files are the source code of the package, the Emacs NEWS file, and /usr/dict/words.

Installation

In order to install, put the file somewhere on your ‘load-path’ and add the following to your ~/.emacs file:

 (autoload 'typing-of-emacs "typing" "The Typing Of Emacs, a game." t)
