Reflex

Probably created sometime towards the end of 2019 and dusted off in 2020 Reflex is an oblique font that leans back instead of forward. It’s an unusual style that I’ve only seen in real life when my left-handed schoolfriend slanted back in his exercise books.

This font works pretty well for all areas of text although it can be difficult to identify some words in some scenarios so be careful with usage.

Velocity

This typeface is a 2019 BASIN production with a fast, aggressive angular style suitable for racing games.

This font works great for titles and lists but can be hard to read for large quantities of text.

Speedway

A 2018 creation designed in BASIN for games that want an aggressive angular appearance often associated with motor-sports and other such events.

Both bold and regular weights are included and they are readable even for long blocks of text although a proportional renderer and an extra 1 pixel of vertical spacing would really make this pop.

Specmatic

This font originally designed in 2006 for BASIN saw some tweaks for the 2019 release. It was designed to look sleek, angular, and industrial.

One advantage of having these simulated screenshots is they help with design, spacing, and consistency which is all but impossible inside most bitmap font editors.

This update sees revisions to !Ii3 to iron out some inconsistencies. It works well for short and long runs of text where you want something that feels fast, industrial or mechanical without being too in-your-face.
