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. A bold was added in 2020.

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

Beachball

I created this font in 2018 as a bubbly, fun font that somehow reminded me of playing on the beach with friends. A short version was added in 2020 that keeps much of the original feel while dealing with descenders and vertical spacing a bit better.

It is mostly sans-serif with some subtle exceptions and chunky lower terminals and lower arms, giving it a new refreshing feel for an 8x8. A proportional renderer and an extra pixel of vertical whitespace would make it shine.

This font works very well on title screens and could even work in a text adventure with that custom font rendering.

Can be seen in Crap Dice 3, Roque y sus Bloques and Northpole.
