Nicety

A nice clear font in three different weights

I originally designed Nicety back in 2006 for the BASIN package as a resource for authors but felt the need to polish it up somewhat with all new semi-bold and bold variants in 2018 in preparation for ZX Origins.

It is a nice clean easy-to-read sans-serif that is a little condensed. With a standard 8x8 renderer it looks quite spaced out but with a proportional renderer it can look great.

Having three weights of a font isn’t typical for an 8x8 font so if your adventure or game requires a couple of levels of emphasis this can be a great option as all three are highly readable and consistent.
