PicoMag

A 2021 production taking the concept of a magnetic-character-recognition style and making it incredibly small. The bottom-heavy magnetic elements also give it a weight reminiscent of 80s chrome as well.

It works pretty well for a number of scenarios and given the size you could squeeze out a lot more text with a proportional renderer.

Authorized

A 2021 release that intersects the magnetic style of Computing 60s with a cut-out “stencil” style like No Step.

The result is something a little interesting if difficult to read beyond simple titles or menus.

Quasar

A 2021 release of a design that had been sitting around for a while - at least since 2020 perhaps earlier - that never felt quite done or right. I eventually decided to just release the font anyway and in doing so tried to think of a name and decided that a spacey-name would be good which led to me remembering the Battlestar Galactica logo which has a similar theme.

At that point I simply moved around where the gaps on each letter were to be more in tune with the Battlestar logo instead of the seemingly-random decisions I had made previously… and that worked in pulling the font together.

It works nicely for titles and headings but please stay away from anything longer than a few words and use sparingly. If you want a more readable spacey-type theme check out some of my alternatives from the collection that also share a space theme.

Undead

A fresh 2021 production that draws inspiration from styles of lettering often used in dark and horror-themed environments.

Full of unexpected angles, protruding descents and barbed spikes, it’s sure to add an element of uncomfortableness to any text adventure or graveyard-themed beat-em-up.
