Reward

Wanted - a font for posters, bills & rewards

I drew this font in 2019 using BASIN. It is inspired by block-printed Wanted Posters of the Wild West that were later codified in the 1938 font https://www.linotype.com/90117/playbill-family.html. Of all the 8x8 fonts I’ve created this was the most frustrating in trying to get the essence of large blocky serifs into a space that just didn’t allow it.

This font looks good for any western themed games where you have some control over the vertical spacing otherwise the letters will just run into each other as there simply weren’t enough pixels left to leave a horizontal row unused.
