Kern Me is a typography game about kerning.
It's always intriguing to takes a technical, even mundane, activity and makes it into a game. Take kerning, for example: the process of adjusting the spacing between characters in a proportional font, usually to achieve a visually pleasing result... or at least that's Wikipedia's take. Anyways, Kern Me charges you with just that: touch and drag the middle letters of a given word for a given font to make it aesthetically perfect, again ... PERFECT!
Your result will be compared against a professional typographer's, and you will be given a score based on how close you get to their solution.
It's not a concept that survives multiple plays-through, but it's quirky fun and helps you sharpen your skill and sensitivity to kern the type. So, what are you waiting for? Grab & beat it now.
