I’d like to announce the first “official” public release of TuxTyping, an
SDL powered typing tutorial for kiddies staring Tux, the Linux Penguin.
(TuxTyping is copyrighted under the GPL).
TuxTyping can be found at
with its downloading and installation page at
Like I said, this is the first “official” public release, but it has been
floating around unofficially amongst certain persons on the SDL mailing
list for a little while now ;).
I had wanted to wait and release it at version 0.5 (when most of the game
will be done, and all that will be left is debugging) but I am going to be
going on a month long vacation soon and wanted to get /something/ online
before I go.
What’s done in the game:
-Tutorial for Key Cascade
What’s left to be done:
-Tutorial for Word Cascade
Feel free to download it and check it out… let me know what you think
(if anything). Please bear in mind that the code is /really/ ugly and keep
the known problems (listed on the web-site) in mind when reporting any
