'David Lynch Teaches Typing' is an Educational Game Based on the Director

David Lynch, the director behind landmark films like 'Blue Velvet' and 'Mulholland Drive', is known for his savvy combination of small town camp and vicious, violent surrealism, and the new game 'David Lynch Teaches Typing' plays off of that concept. Though ostensibly a wholesome game to help kids learn how to type correctly, it quickly veers into the grotesque absurdity that Lynch so deftly depicts.

To be sure, David Lynch Teaches Typing does indeed teach users the fundamentals of touch typing, including the home row, the upper row, and the number pad. However, it's clear that the game is far more of an homage and in-joke for fans of Lynch (as opposed to an earnest tool for showing kids around the computer keyboard).
