* BrutalBonusLevel: Completing the secret [[spoiler:Comic Sans]] level requires you to move right constantly or die, with a physics system that slows you down or traps you (both of which kill you) if you make a minor misstep, culminating with a jump onto an angled platform that starts moving ''before you land on it'', and unlike every other level in the game there ''[[CheckpointStarvation are no checkpoints]].''

''Type:Rider'' is a platform/"adventure puzzle" game developed by the European TV channel ARTE and French graphic designer Cosmografik (aka Theo Le Du Fuentes) and published by [=BulkyPix=]. You play as a sideways colon/diaresis traversing a land of letterforms in a way reminiscent of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' as you explore the [[UsefulNotes/{{Fonts}} history of typography]] from prehistoric times to the digital age while learning about some of the better known typefaces such as Bodoni, Garamond, Helvetica and so on.
