Security Concepts

Created in late 2019 and inspired by the original RoboCop logo this font is bold, chunky, industrial and angular.

It works well for titles, menus and short lists. Larger blocks of text can be quite hard to read.

Vertigo

Another recent 2019 design this time taking inspiration from the posters of 60s movies like Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo.

This font has a lot of energy and some chaos plus a dash of datedness from the simply woodblock-like structure.

This style works well for not only title screens but text adventures and large runs of text and even looks great with standard fixed-width 8-pixel rendering.

Truffle Shuffle

A 2006 BASIN creation that’s unashamedly bold and a little reminiscent of many a cover tape back in the day.

Not too much to say about this one - it’s super-simple and bold with little in the way of flourishes and works for titles and can be used for dialog and prose although it can get a bit hard to read in descriptive text adventures.

Can be seen in Quahappy.

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.
