How is your typical working day? Are you just sitting in one place, staring at your computer for hours and trying to concentrate on working? If the answer is yes, how do you feel? You absolutely feel overwhelmed and stressful as hell, don’t you?
Let me tell you something: this isn’t the most productive way to work. In that case, all you need to do is taking a nice break. You can go around engaging in a bit of gossip with your co-workers while enjoying a cup of coffee. However, what would be really great is if you can find something that not only boosts your typing speed, but also gives you some fun?
Typing Racer game aims to increase your typing speed and accuracy, motivate you from typing with just two fingers. You know typing is a vital part of working, especially if you are a programmer. Tons of hours will be saved in future by becoming an efficient typist.
It is also a social racing game where you can compete against other players. You can invite your co-worker to play with you. Awesome, right?
How to play Typing Racer
First step: let’s go to typingracer.io. After choosing a cool name, you can begin quickly by choosing one of three racing modes: Enter Game, Race With Friends and Practices. Each mode is unique in experience and serves a different purpose.
For instance, when you choose “Race With Friends”, you can start a private race and invite your friends to join. Competing with your own friends makes competition even hotter, doesn’t it? In the “Practices” mode, you will play alone to improve your own skills.
After selecting a racing mode, you will be connected to a race that is about to begin or start a new race. As soon as you see the green light is turned off, start typing. The faster you type, the faster your car moves.
When the race is finished, there will be a scoreboard that shows what place you came. The faster and more accurately you typed, the more bonus you will have received. The more money you earn, the more expensive car you can buy next time.
Let’s take a look at the video below to see how we actually race:
When someone catches a glimpse of you playing games instead of working, they might think you are wasting time. Even you think the same, don’t you? But, it does not. The five-minute gaming can help you come back feeling more refreshed and happier.
Long work hours will make processing information more difficult later in the day, and taking game breaks helps relax and motivate you, giving you more energy to continue to work. As I mentioned in the previous article “Should we work remotely?”, according to a study from University of Warwick, people tend to work harder when they’re happy – around 12% more productive.
Right now, we’re trying to get in all the features we wanted and make a real effort to make Typing Racer better and faster to help you take the stress out of working. This game will be officially released on Friday, 10 March 2017.
Let’s try it yourself and tell me how you feel! Your feedback will completely keep us go on.
