Dev-Blog #5 - Groupees - General Polishing - Shader Overhaul finished
The biggest news first: Typing with Jester is on Groupees Build a Greenlight Bundle 45!
{LINK REMOVED} and support the game's development.
The DRM-Free version on groupees will be updated until the game hits steam. Every groupees owner will receive a Steamkey once available!

I added a pause menu and the option to return to the level, restart it or go back to the stage selection or the main menu. Adjusting the volume will be implemented with the next patch!

So first the new Color Select UI was improved, new sprites were added to display various keys.
Those will be implemented whenever i find a suitable place. Also 11 preset themes are finished.
Minor changes can happen but overall i found 11 shades i like.

The custom color editor is still a work in progress, but it improved quite alot.

Players will be able to make and save their own preset.
Once the game is available on Steam those color themes can be shared via the Steam Workshop!
Those custom Palettes will be displayed with it's name and the author's name.

The Workshop will also be used for user dictionarys, but that's for a way later version.

On the gameplay side the ability to change enemys was added, if you started typing one enemys word and want to switch to another enemy,
you simply have to press the backspace button to clear your current word, and then you can start typing whatever enemy's word you want to.
But you will lose the points for the letters you typed already, because otherwise it would be pretty easy to abuse this system and gain massive highscores.

Also ~200 new words were added for the english and german dictionary.

A knowledge system was implemented that shows useful information on the main menu, right now theres just 1 tip. The main menu and the options will be overhauled very soon.

It's still a long road to go but im looking forward to the next Dev-Blog.

Stay tuned touch typists!

Right now the current version is 0.1.19, there will be a few more 0.1.x versions until the dictionary is completed.

Dev-Blog #4 - Shader overhaul almost complete and new Greenlight Trailer
Description
Release date: Q4 2016
At a time when much of the world remained undiscovered from other civilizations there was a small island called Fair....
Typing with Jester is a typing game with a 8-Bit Retro fourscale style. Imagine those classic handhelds had a keyboard and a similar game to Typing of the Dead. Sounds awesome right?

FAQ
Was the name changed?
Yes. We had to change the name due to legal reasons. From now on the game is called "Typing with Jester"
