Jam

I thought I’d covered most of the over-bold uneven styles I could in previous fonts but this one goes extreme in a top-heavy way and managed to pull off something a little different.

It works well for headlines and title screens although the WMm and w can be very tight and a proportional render can really help there.

Vertigo

Another recent 2019 design this time taking inspiration from the posters of 60s movies like Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo.

This font has a lot of energy and some chaos plus a dash of datedness from the simply woodblock-like structure.

This style works well for not only title screens but text adventures and large runs of text and even looks great with standard fixed-width 8-pixel rendering.

Tentacle

A fresh font created in 2019 inspired by the chaotic typography of games like Day of the Tentacle purely from memory. The actual in-game font is quite different so once again this font takes on a life of its own.

Both upright and semi-bold with serifs and square edges this font can work across many styles of games although using it for a period text adventure is probably a bad idea.
