Cinema

A roaring good time

I drew this font sometime around 2006 for BASIN and it was originally called Cinemax before I realized that name was a trademark. So here it is back again with a much more generic name.

Inspired by the 1920s art-deco movement it takes a modern regular approach to the curves and lines in order to better adapt to the constraints of 8x8.

This style of font has always been quite popular in 8-bit games and can be found in a number of text adventures as the mix of bold and non-bold stems give more space to play with while also packing in style.
