Quickshot

The inspiration for this name I believe from an advert for the Quickshot joystick but I can no longer find the original source to confirm that.

It is a very hard, sharp and angular bold font that works well for titles and short blocks of text. It can be used for longer runs with some careful usage.

Altered Chrome

A 2019 production that tries to be more aggressive full of tech flair and sharp angles available in three weights.

This font works well on title screens and for short runs of text, status screens, menus, etc. Longer prose is harder to read. It would also look good with either a proportional renderer or one capable of rendering just 6 or 7 pixels wide.

Torment

A 2020 BASIN production with a sharp aggressive type with pointed vertical strokes.

It works quite well as titles and headings and can be readable in short runs of text with generous vertical spacing.

Can be seen in Danterrifik II.

Fatality

I designed this font in 2018 in BASIN drawing inspiration from my memory of Mortal Kombat (hence the name).

Like my Tentacle Font my memory of what the font was versus what Googled screenshots are quite different (the arcade font is thicker, rounder and more decaying depending on what version and text you’re looking at). Mostly this font is more of the style of the FIGHT! message.

Still, this font looks great on title screens and even works okay for text adventures at a pinch.
