Labyrinth

I designed this font in 2019 and for a moment I thought I had re-created Rosand but while both have those tight corners and interesting gaps they don’t share much else in common and so here it is as a separate typeface.

It works great for titles and lists and can be used for runs of text provided they are short with a good color scheme.

Isofell

I created this font back in 2005-2006 for BASIN and it’s one of the more unusual.

The letters look like they’ve been either been rotated 30’ or been re-plotted onto an isometric grid - hence the name.

This font is hard to read but could be fun on pop-ups for sound effects - KAPOW! - or short bursts on title screens. If you use it for anything more than that … well… you’re asking for complaints!

Franopix

A 2005 creation for BASIN with aggressive styling and flair - I’m sure there was some specific inspiration for this one but I’m at a loss as to where it came from.

This font works well for titles and lists but can be a bit extreme for large runs of text. Having bold and non-bold can help add some variety to lists and titles.

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.
