Valour

I designed this font in 2020 based on a few characters in the logo of the game Valorant.

It doesn’t have real lower-case instead adopting for shorter versions of the upper-case characters but like localhost I think it can work quite well especially for status screen, lists and title pages. If you use it for a text adventure somebody will probably want to give you a stern talking to.

Quickshot

The inspiration for this name I believe from an advert for the Quickshot joystick but I can no longer find the original source to confirm that.

It is a very hard, sharp and angular bold font that works well for titles and short blocks of text. It can be used for longer runs with some careful usage.

Anchovy

I designed this font in 2020 as a tribute to the DALEK font used originally in the 1964 Dr. Who tie-in Dalek Book. The font went on to see popular use with Cesar’s Palace adopting it for their logo sometime later. The DALEK font did not include a lower-case so I improvised there based on the cues in the upper case and numerics.

It works surprisingly well in an 8x8 given the angles and flair although extensive use would be challenging to read and is best left to Aztec inspired titles and headings.

Clipper

A 2020 design that goes with an squared off angular bold look that still manages to look different - is somewhat the opposite bolding of my Trouble font with some alternative takes in places.

The font works well on lists and titles screens can be readable for prose on decent quality displays.
