What is the in Game Font(s)?


#1

Does anyone know what font(s) are used within Gems of War? Devs probably know, but I figured I ask publicly for any of those font experts out there. xD @Sirrian @Nimhain @Andrew @Nex @Mr.Strange

Particular ones of interest are the fonts used on the cards and the numbers of the cards, but a list of all of them if possible would be greatly appreciated. :slight_smile:

Asking the REAL questions :yum:


#3

Most of the text is done in Albertus.
Heading font is Ardagh


#4

Now we know what to use in Photoshop, thanks!

… I’ve never ever heard of those two …


#5

Do note that you have to license many fonts for commercial use (and I’m fairly sure that YouTube would count as commercial use.)


#6

I do not think that is what he means. Incoming fake pics of this game!


#7

Oh, sorry. I saw the dragon avatar and thought tacet.

Apologies, Shimrra.


#8

This again. :stuck_out_tongue:


#9

The fonts in question are available with an open license.

Allencon is also used in a few banners.


#10

So the devs started browsing font libraries and never got any further than A. :slight_smile:


#11

That is normally how I choose fonts. I tend to stay in T’s. xD


#12

Those sounds incredibly made up, Ardagh looks like the cousin to Qwerty!


#13

Ardagh is a very guttural-sounding word to me. Perhaps one of the devs heard it somewhere. Could be what the Great Maw utters when he’s smacking his lips…


#14

Makes me think of Ardneh, from Fred Saberhagen’s “Complete Book of Swords”


#15

Ardagh sounds Klingon


#16

Sounds Gaelic to me. In fact, it ends with “agh” just like shillelagh.


#17

Technically, all words are “made up” :wink:


#18

The REAL :tm:
