Space Opera

I created this font in 2018 as a tribute to the Star Wars logo.

The letters work well for a monospace as many glyphs fill the width with joining lines. It manages to be a flowing font without the jagged edges loops and diagonals impose.

It works surprisingly well for titles and lists and isn’t too bad even for full blocks of text.

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.

Mach4

A fast cutting font reminiscent of high speed, action-packed movie posters and video games I designed in 2019 using the trusty BASIN editor. A wide variant was added in July 2020.

This font works well for both titles and prose where you want a mix of edgy, fast, and futuristic.

Chest Burster

I created this font around 2006 as a resource for the BASIN development tool.

The inspiration is taken from, as its name would suggest, the scant few letters in the logo for the movie Aliens.

This font is very readable, although the generous spacing between characters can make it hard to read for large blocks of text. That could be addressed by a proportional font renderer or even just rendering the leftmost 6 pixels of each glyph.
