Reactor

A 2020 creation for a very bold square oblique font reminiscent of many a computer and games advertisement in the 90s once the 70s magnetic-OCR styles just couldn’t cut it any longer. A very similar typeface adorned the Protovision advert that was the story catalyst in the movie WarGames.

I added two non-oblique versions to compliment this typeface as part of a set - Serif and Regular - however, they are both quite similar to the existing fonts in the collection - Tentacle and Precinct but these versions better align if you want a single smart style. These three styles work well in a variety of scenarios including text, prose, headings, and lists.

Additionally a “Zone” style gives the feeling of a stencil or reflected mountain landscape while “Leak” gives a particle-decay/shaded look. Both are best suited for headings or title screens.

Ramscoop

A 2018 creation designed to give a recess or inset feel on the thick stems originally named Recess. In 2020 an angled variant was added and a new name adopted to make it suitable for an addition.

This font works okay for titles and very short runs of text. It also only really works if the text is lighter than the background.

Flick

I do not recall where the inspiration for this one came from nor exactly when it was created, I suspect 2018.

This font is super bold but also has some flourishes and the odd serif. Surprisingly with all that it looks pretty good and is usable for titles and dialog. I would be careful with colors to ensure good contrast especially if aiming for CRT users.

Can be seen in The Relic and Flexible Frosty.

Eclipse

A 2006 creation once again for BASIN this time taking the idea of a solar eclipse to fonts and filling in all the counters. The style was quite popular in the 80s with Electronic Arts using a similar thing for their EOA logo.

This font like all no-counter fonts is very hard to read and should be used sparingly for titles.
