Futuristic Arcade Typing Game Outshine Gets a Launch Trailer





Developer Fishing Cactus and Publisher Plug In Digital have announced that breakneck arcade typing game Outshine is now available for PC via Steam. Nimble-fingered keyboard warriors must use their words to free protagonist Hue from a beautiful yet oppressive cyberworld filled with clever traps, meddlesome enemies, and formidable bosses. Input letters swiftly and accurately to accrue points, multipliers, and a place on the leaderboard. Type fast and triumph using only your keyboard – no mice necessary!

Hue’s journey for vengeance begins in Outshine’s launch trailer:


As players embark on a quest through 18 visually stunning levels to take down the dictatorial Shards, they’ll unlock increasingly potent special moves like the ability to discharge lightning bolts onto the battlefield. Scan each level carefully to find new words to type. Master the rhythm, then completely alter the experience with modifiers like auto-pilot, infinite abilities and mirror words.

Dare to learn new key layouts with Qwerty, Azerty, Qwertz, Dvorak, Colemak, BÉPO, and more, or practice typing in a new language. English, French, Italian, German and Spanish text localizations are currently supported, with many more slated to arrive in the near future.

“Outshine presents the perfect opportunity to brush up on vocabulary, learn words in a new language, or simply enhance one’s typing speed,” says Francis Ingrand, CEO at Plug In Digital. “Of course, the game also offers a simple yet compelling narrative for players to sink their keys into, with accessibility options available for those that are dyslexic or colorbind. We’re so excited to introduce players to Hue and their journey today, and can’t wait to add more features soon!”
