Modern Arcade Typefaces? [Stasmic?]

Polypixel's picture


I'm working on the Front End for a modern arcade game. Something similar to SEGA's 'Afterburner Climax', and i'm looking for heading and body fonts.

I like the italic, smooth feel of Ray Larabie's Stasmic but i'm worried it may be a little too light and difficult to read, even as a heading font.

Anyone fancy suggesting some suitable heading/title and body fonts?

Thanks in advance,

Ray would likely be willing to do a custom version for you. He comes from a games design background, so could probably work out the right licensing model too.

Have you checked the equivalent Dafont theme section?

The Feisar and Feisar Express families have been developed especially to mix arcade sensibilities with good readability. Feisar comes in a nice range of weights from Extra Light to Bold for added flexibility. And although not shown on the website, a range of pixel variants are available too. :)

Thanks for all your comments.

@ sii

We have actually used Ray before so a custom font is an option.

@ Fontgrube

Yes, that's where I found Stasmic.

@ PvdL

I find Feisar/Feisar Express a little too "alien/retro" for what i'm doing with this front end. On the other hand, I'm not looking for something too futuristic either. (Excuse the link, I can't work out the correct tags >.<)

Body text? I'm thinking perhaps Century Gothic Italic, though i'm far from convinced.

I'd probably recommend Neuropol. It's techy/alien without being too complicated you cant read it. I've seen a show on Discovery or the History Channel use it exclusively for the intro to some program.
