Runes predate our Latin based alphabet and directly informed and influenced it in many ways. Many of the earlier ones are not too recognizable but taking the Anglo-Saxon runes and a bunch of liberties.
The result is something quite readable by modern eyes even on low-resolutions screens.
A 2019 production that that is aggressive, full of tech flair, and available in three weights.
This font works well on title screens, short runs of text, status screens, menus, etc. Longer prose is harder to read. It would look better with either a proportional renderer or one capable of rendering just 6 or 7 pixels wide.
I created this font in 2020 with a little bit of inspiration from Defender of the Crown on the Amiga that I’d done a TrueType version of reproduction of a while back. I added semi-bold and bold variants in early 2021.
Taking the cues of a narrow old-style I set out to create something from scratch that was also taller with a different approach to flourishes and angles.
It works very well for all on-screen scenarios but a proportional renderer or 6-pixel wide renderer would do it the most justice.
I started these fonts in 2018 as very separate creations with different names. As I refined a couple of them they started to fit better together and I eventually decided to unify them into a single set.
This font works great everywhere you want generous spacing and would look even more awesome with a proportional renderer.
