Nintendo Insider

"Spotlighted in Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3 2015's coverage, Brainseed Factory's Typoman easily distinguished itself as one of the more intriguing titles to be included in the Nindies@Home promotion."


"When the development team uses the word "innovative" to describe their concept, they certainly have the right to make such a claim."

Nintendo Enthusiast

"The implementation of letters within Typoman is ingenious and creative, and I could not be more excited to try the final version of this exclusive Wii U title when it is finally finished."


"I really enjoyed what I saw of Typoman on the E3 show floor today. While the game isn't going to be out until later this year, it's well worth giving the game a look."

Pocket Gamer

"As the game progresses, you'll need to figure out puns in order manipulate the environment in ever more dangerous scenarios. It's a cool idea and, by the looks of it, one that has been realised with style."

Playstation Official Magazine UK (Issue 103 12/2014)

"In just 15 minutes, the evocative wordsmith showcases numerous epiphany moments with its letters, and its three-to-four hour journey is sure to be filled with clever puzzles that'll have you reaching for the dictionary. It's a road we, Carol and Big Bird can't wait to travel down."

Nintendo Life

"There are no release date details yet, but this looks like an intriguing title that should stay on our radar."


"Innovative, charming and really bloody clever, I can't wait for Typoman to teach me about the birds and the spelling bees."


"Typoman is a moody, yet beautiful game to look at. Brainseed Factory has not disclosed much information on Typoman, but it's simple surreal premise is enough to captivate us for the short term."


"The silly nature of the puns and that fact that you can think of solutions for each puzzle from two directions – both by thinking of the words and how you can change them, and by thinking of the physical action that needs to happen – means that the risk of getting stuck decreases and on some occasions you will feel twice rewarded for clearing an obstacle."


"On top of the brilliant puzzles the game also supports fantastic visual design. All dark silhouettes and stark blacks, the game looks incredible in action. The idea is that the world has been drawn or painted on paper, and this style only helps to develop the wonderful uniquity of Typoman."
