Firebird

I created this font in 2018 as a tribute to the 80s game publisher Firebird.

I’m sure the font used in their logo has been around for a long time but I’ve not been able to track down the exact one they used so once again this is a pretty liberal interpretation based on just those 8 letters.

It works quite well for titles and short runs of text. I wouldn’t recommend it for anything longer - it gets to be hard work reading it!

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.
