Some Fonts.

Recommended Posts

I've found myself oddly obsessed with fonts lately - especially with fonts from my favorite games, if I see them elsewhere they stand out to me. Here's a few notable ones.

Lithograph Bold - Used in the Playstation 1 and GameBoy Advance Spyro games for almost all text that wasn't dialogue. Even the 3D font used for portals and Spyro 1's menus is based on it. It was used in many other 90's games, including pre-release versions of the first Crash Bandicoot. I see this font ALL OVER THE PLACE in business logos and stuff. https://fontzone.net/font-details/lithograph-bold

Roquette - This is the font used for most in-game text in all of Naughty Dog's Crash Bandicoot games, and all of Vicarious Visions' Crash games prior to N-Sane Trilogy. It's used for the word "BANDICOOT" whenever it's part of a game title/logo. Roquette is also featured on the ribbon in the original CTR logo (Nitro Fueled uses a different font). https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/itc/roquette/#index

Yikes! - This font is used for most in-game text in Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy, as well as promotional material for N-Sane Trilogy and Nitro Fueled. https://www.dafont.com/yikes.font

P22 Daddy-O Square - I think Crash 2's logo uses this font for the text "CORTEX STRiKES BACK" (if you type it as "CORtex StRikeS BACk"), although it's deformed. https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/p22/daddy-o-hip/

P22 Daddy-O Gaunt - I think this is used in the original Crash Bandicoot's manual, but my copy is in storage at the moment so I can't check. https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/p22/daddy-o-hip/

P22 Daddy-O Fatface - I'm pretty sure this is used for the word "BASH" in Crash Bash's logo. I'm pretty sure the in-game text for Crash Bash uses this font, as well. This font also appears to be the origin of the "X" on the X Crates in Crash Nitro Kart. https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/p22/daddy-o-hip/

Garrick Bold - This is the font used in Dragon Quest XI in English (Probably all multi-5 languages). https://fontzone.net/font-details/garrick-bold

Mason - I see variations of this font sometimes, I didn't mean to find it but for an example, I think it's in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Supposedly it's used on the British TV show, The Dragon's Den. (I've never watched it.) https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/emigre/mason-ot/

Simian - This font family is used in Ratchet and Clank for PS2. It appears to originate from the logo for the film, Planet of the Apes. https://houseind.com/hi/simian-a5c6ef15-7acc-41e0-aefe-dbba36f02f1d

Feel free to list any fonts you find notable.
