This design started with trying very specific diamond shapes but soon took on more irregularity to deal with the size constraints. Combined with the lower-case characters not joining up the counters it took on a rough unpolished look evoking old-time adventure.
The font works well for large runs of prose.
Yet another font I created for the BASIN package around 2006 that wasn’t so much designed as burst forth as metal music should.
The glyphs are overly bold, angular, and overtly aggressive. I revised a few of them since the 2006 release to fix some height issues with some of the lower-case letters.
The final result works better for large runs of text than you’d expect given the style but it works best used sparingly.
In 2020 I added a new attempt at the style. It’s an interesting different take using small caps for lower-case and is actually based on the square version which was itself an attempt at Soviet poster typography.

I designed this font in 2019 in BASIN as a very bold and angular font.
It works great for titles and headings and can be used for descriptive prose providing the screen isn’t too fuzzy.
While the font can be too difficult to read for large blocks of text it shines on status and list screens as well as titles and menus.
The alternative ‘Razor Rust’ is actually a much earlier iteration of this font (it went through so many) that actually complements it nicely and has a much rougher feel.
