Forgotten

I created this font in 2018 after deciding to try once again with hand-written script fonts - one of the styles I’ve struggled with.

The inspiration came from imagining handwriting in a journal that somebody took care of despite never expecting somebody else to read. It is one of my favorite creations.

It works quite well for large runs of text and is quite suitable for text adventure games that tell an informal story.

Dunny on the Wold

This font was created in 2006 as a resource for the BASIN development tool.

This was my first proper attempt at a script font in 8x8 having tried many times in the 80s before giving up on the idea altogether. The name comes from an episode of “Black Adder” for no reason other than the BASIN was written by Paul Dunn.

Whether you consider this font readable is a matter of personal choice or rather whether you grew up with “cursive”. If you’re aiming at younger players I’d avoid scripts entirely.

Coolant

I created this font in 2018 thinking about the old flowing chrome letters of 60s refrigerators. It breaks the horizontal line a little bit to make it more practical.

This font works great for titles and lists but also can work quite well for descriptions and prose too if you want an italic hand that is a bit more regular than many scripts.
