A crazy mix of ideas and influences, in The Textorcist sees you step in the shoes of private exorcist Ray Bibbia in a homae to top down high-speed dungeon crawlers and, err, Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing. Which was a thing from back in the '90s that gave interactive lesson to you that you could get good - at typing. Links to the free The Textorcist demo and trailer after the jump.
In The Textorcist you use the arrow keys to move about, talk to characters, and dodge projectiles (yeah, plenty of Excorcist-style projectiles too) - stopping to type out passages in an attempt to send demons back to from whence they came. Check it out.
Having played through the demo - it's definitely both a weird and fun setup. Even opening the door to your apartment or answering the phone is handled this way. With 'Leave' and 'Answer' respectively. It's a fun story to boot, taking playful jabs at Catholicism and more. And the passages you need to type are mostly hilarious in just how religious and convoluted they are. Oh, and the soundtrack is as retro as the visuals.
To install the demo and check it out (the full release is due on Friday) - head to the Steam store page.
