Funny... I just traded the game in last week.
I'm also trying to contact game developers to see if they might be interested in coming to or even participating in TypeCon 2006. I think it's an industry that doing more custom screen fonts than many standard foundries nowadays.

Cannon46 - what are you basing that on? Seems like a stretch to me unless you have inside knowledge.

Pity about the prime marks instead of apostrophes! Hate seeing that.

Wow, canon out of left field.

I don't know what it is, but Mason, Priori, or Saber would be much better.

I really think it is Georgia. They have extended The stem of the P,R,M below the beaseline. They added the decorative serifs to the middle of the stems. I can't find one letter that doesn't match up. Stephen, your suggestions get the same look as the font they are looking for, but I strongly feel that they used Georgia then added the spurs (I don't know the right term).

Also, Georgia is a font used in low resolution situations. That's one of the reasons I went straight to it.

It looks like Boston Truck Style to me.

I have recreated the top line in Georgia. This is what I am basing it on.

Ahah. I got you know. Very clever ID. There's a good chance also that this is a free font that started out as Georgia (naughty naughty).

Does anyone know where to get this font as it is made from the game without having to customize it?

Your best bet is going with what is suggested above by Stephen and Brad.
