Please note: This is a collection of old Flash games, completely untouched from their original forms. This is NOT a remaster or a remake. As you might expect, it's slightly janky.

If you launch the EXE directly instead of using the itch.io launcher, Windows will give you a warning. You can bypass this warning by clicking "More Info" and then clicking the "Launch" button.

The single-player Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing web games, finally available as a single download.

When you download this collection, you get:

  1. Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing: The original game, made in one month for a Something Awful game jam. A short comedic romp through the world of typing.
  2. Icarus Proudbottom's World of Typing Weekly: The messy, episodic, overly-ambitious sequel, heavily inspired by Twin Peaks. Solve an otherwordly murder mystery over the course of five episodes.

Mac version coming ASAP. Sorry, Mac friends. It's difficult to get Flash games working on Windows nowadays, and OSX is another story!

Several years ago, IP Teaches Typing absolutely floored me with its hilarious script, catchy piano-toy music, amazing presentation and basically everything else. I couldn't believe my eyes, that a game this fun and polished could be done in something like Flash. I am glad to finally pay back the guys who delighted me with this game many years ago. This gem deserves more! Hope I see more stuff from Holy Wow!

PS: the game seems to work fine on Linux by using Wine!


Really glad these are available- took me right back to the weekly wait for the mystery to unravel. Definitely wouldn't mind another mind bending journey through the land of typing.


Thank you SOOOOO much for making these available again! This is as good as gold in my book!


no problem friend

word thank you, a while back a spent a while to no avail trying to locate the .swf files for this game haha. Thanks for making this availble in a user friendly package!!!
